Sibel Who? Why Jon Gold Has Glommed Onto a New Leading Lady...

Starting immediately after the September 11 terrorist attacks, we began to see, and of course become subject to, jacked up security check points and searches in our airports. First, they already had us all going through big complex metal detectors. Then, they had us do the same thing but remove our belts and other metal containing garments and belongings. Then, they had us bend over like servants before kings, remove our shoes, and humbly walk barefoot through the big complex metal detectors. After that, they prohibited us from carrying our drinking water or any other liquid, and they made our lactating women open up their stored breast milk and sip it before the eyes of the traveling masses passing by…

-Sibel Edmonds, 1/31/2010

Remember the days when every other word out of Jon Gold's keyboard started with the letter S and rhymed with "the bell"?  What happened?  Is Sibel suddenly not, in Jon Gold's eyes, relevant to 9/11 Truth?  Is Cindy Sheehan really that more fun to obsess over and furiously pimp?  Or could it be that Sibel has now so obviously made it clear that she has absolutely no interest--zero--in exposing the truth about 9/11 that even The Compassionate One knows better than to risk whatever remains of his own credibility by continuing to pretend that Sibel is something she is not--that is, sincere?  Does anyone believe at this point that she is anything but a LIHOP limited hangout agent of the 9/11 cover-up?
