Some time ago a translator for the FBI was fired. With the deluge of information coming out of the middle east after 911 Sibel Edmonds was one of the many translators who was able to translate several of the arabic languages. When she was asked to change what she had translated she refused and was terminated. The FBI labeled her a trouble maker yet in a review of her claims the information she provided about coruption within the agency proved true and not just about her translations. The Justice Department (remember this was under Ashcroft) put a gag order on her stating "state secrets". She was kept muzzled until a law suit by Ohio congressional candidate John Krikorian against Jean Schmit (R) Ohio (you might remember Mean Jean saying that John Murtha a decorated marine was a coward) required Edmonds to testify. Seems Jean may have been taking bribes from the Turkish government or so the law suit says. At any rate Sibel was able to testify during a six hour deposition on Saturday and from the beginning and from what can be gathered she spilled the beans on the Justice Department, the FBI, Dennis Hasert and a bunch of others.
I don't know about now but had this happened several years ago a whole bunch of people would be doing life in prison or worse. Remember when the Rosenbergs were put to death for revealing nuclear secrets? Well this involves the same thing only on a higher level. A summary of the deposition should be up some time later today.
