Sibel Edmonds: Why we fight (for publicity)
Edited on Tue Sep-26-06 08:23 AM by lukery
Many people are not aware of Sibel Edmonds' case. The new documentary "Kill The Messenger" is an important vehicle for bringing her story to public attention - and now we have proof of the benefit of shedding light on her story. The documentary premiered in Europe a week ago, and it has already helped generate some new leads.

Those of you who have been following Sibel's story will know that Douglas Dickerson and his wife, Melek Can Dickerson, tried to recruit Sibel into their illicit network of weapons trafficking - promising her rich rewards and an early retirement.

Douglas Dickerson was involved in (probably dodgy) weapons procurement for the US Government in Turkey and across the Turkic region, and his wife was, by all accounts, a spy/mole in the FBI translation department - working alongside Sibel. You can read about how they tried to 'recruit' Sibel in Vanity Fair and you can read Sibel's specific allegations against the Dickersons here

The Dickersons fled to the NATO base in Belgium and hadn't been heard from since 2002. Sibel tried desperately to instigate investigations into the Dickersons before they fled the country - sending letters to Joseph E. Schmitz (Inspector General, DoD), Senator John Warner, & Alberto Gonzales that you can read here

In any case, thanks to some of the good folks at NATO in Belgium seeing the new documentary, Kill The Messenger, and contacting Sibel in horror, we now know more about what the Dickersons are up to.

All of Doug and Melek's assets are now registered under Melek Can Dickerson's maiden name, Melek Can Harputlu, and she is living in Ankara in Turkey. Douglas Dickerson has been stationed in a US base in Japan, and has been promoted to Lieutenant Colonel. He is currently Director of Operations for the the 374th Logistics Readiness Squadron - and is currently conducting operations in Iraq.

These same NATO sources report that Dickerson's bosses " are the same individuals who have been protecting Douglas Feith & Richard Perle from being thoroughly investigated by the FBI."

If you have been following the story, you'll know that Perle and Feith are the main culprits identified in the new documentary, and they were also identified by Phil Giraldi as being central to Sibel's case.

for more detail on this story see the Kill The Messenger blog

So, publicity matters. Please do what you can to bring Sibel's story to the attention of as many people as you can. At a minimum, watch the trailer to the film on YouTube and send it to any of your friends who might be interested. It's a compelling story, and it's important, too. The documentary is being shown across Europe, and also here in Australia. If we can generate enough attention on YouTube and other places, we will hopefully get it shown in the US as well.

Make some noise, people.

13. Yep, Great Post
Glad to see the story, and the heroics of Sibel staying alive.

What's it been? Three years now? If any of yall are wondering what this is all about and have the will to decipher some of the hidden links behind 9/11, the links in the OP should prove to be important to you.

Justice is coming.

16. In this case, "operation," not "opinion."
Whatever this post has to do with DU, I dunno. Gun runners always have been around. They're minor criminals compared to the people in the White House. If they weren't responsible for starting up minor wars in various countries, they'd look cute compared to Rumsfeld.

But the person used the word "op" to try to give it a Tom Clancy Espionage End Of The World feel.

19. not gun runners
apparently I didn't make myself clear in the OP (or presumed too much back-knowledge)

these ARE the criminals in the WhiteHouse AND DoD AND State Dept. Richard Perle and Doug Feith are the key players in this story - and Marc Grossman (until recently #3 at the State Dept)

4. So The Dickersons Are Living Separately
Maybe Melek is trying to stay under the warm protective blanket of the Turkish Deep State...she perhaps does not want to risk prosecution. Or maybe she just can't stand living in Japan.

Would like to get a picture of her too. We've heard so much about her. She must look like a witch.

5. Lukery, Have You Gotten Any Traffic from Japan?
Just curious, that might show Doug Dickerson is keeping up to date on Sibel's case.
