Why is Sibel Edmonds on Info Wars?

Her explanation sounds reasonable, but, um... Alex Jones.

About the Tsarnaev brothers?



Caveat: I follow One Direction on Twitter for my daughter so I can tell her what they're doing and the 1D PR department thought it was, well, odd? funny? interesting? to post this: When Conspiracy Theorists and One Direction Fans Collide http://gawker.com/freejahar-when-conspiracy-theorists-and-one-direction-478152664

So, I've been reading these things off and on and it seems like, mostly, that kids don't trust the government, media and corporations (reasonable) and that Jahar Tsarnaev is dreamy (he is a cute kid, duh, but that means nothing.) But when I saw THIS, I wanted to dive into the DU mindtrust and see what the hell was going on.

This is odd. I thought Sibel Edmonds was pretty straight up.

Has something happened with her that I don't know?

2. So... are we reduced to Info Wars levels because we believe

what she said about the information accumulated before 9/11?

Ugh...

I used to be a reporter. This sickens me.

3. Just to be the Devil's Advocate...

Must we always pre-judge content based upon the website or newspaper or TV channel it appears in/on?

6. Well, that makes me feel better.

I adore him.

Maybe the problem isn't with Info War, but with the mainstream media only pointing out when they're dead wrong.

10. Michio Kaku is a regular guest on Coast to Coast AM

and he has his own show on wbai.

There should be nothing wrong with Edmonds, Palast, or Kaku sharing their information with anyone.

11. I think that is the case

And its easy for the corporate media to do, because Alex IMO gets it wrong at least as much as they do. The gay rights movement was a CIA plot?? HA!!!

Of course, Alex will interpret the presence of govt spies in the gay rights movement a certain way because he is biased against gay people. OTOH, I think I am right when I say the movement was a victim of spying.

Edmonds may or may not be aware of the Alex Jones of 2005, say, just as I don't know what kind of impression he makes today (my guess is that gay rights story and others are buried). In the end, she may simply be more comfortable with Jones' world view.

Remember, the establishment are avid conspiracy theorists, too. Our prisons and our wars are proof of that. The difference is the wide berth we give to the establishment theories because of all the pomp and circumstance (i.e. media attention and blood) they are soaked in--And they call that "credibility".

5. Because she... *ahem*... seems to like attention?

I gave her the benefit of the doubt for years until I had to conclude there was actually no there there.

7. But that kind of attention... well...

I just find this whole thing rather odd.

9. I mean, it's a platform. Like somebody said upthread Palast has done it before

Jones isn't 100% crazy all the time, though personally I wouldn't touch anything he had to do with Boston with a 10-foot pole.

8. Glad you found her.

Someone mentioned earlier that she'd been on, but didn't post link.

MAY be because she's been personna non grata from so many places.

12. This is a no brainer! Edmonds is a grifter and needs the exposure

to continue fleecing the weak minded. At least this time, she might lighten a few right-wing nut jobs of their money.

Cheers!
