Daniel Ellsberg, who was responsible for leaking the Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War, revealing a pattern of government deception in the war's prosecution, has condemned the U.S. news media for failing to pick up a front-page London Sunday Times report last week in which an FBI whistleblower, Sibel Edmonds, claimed that the bureau was investigating a Turkish and Israeli group that paid corrupt U.S. officials for nuclear weapons secrets that were sold to countries like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. The Times said that it had obtained an FBI document that corroborated Edmonds's claims. In a message posted on a blog hosted by Brad Friedman, another former FBI staffer turned whistleblower, Ellsberg suggested that U.S. newspapers and television networks failed to pick up the Sunday Times story -- while it was headlined all over the world -- because the U.S. government warned editors that it might jeopardize national security. "There is a worse journalistic sin than being scooped," Ellsberg wrote, "and that is participating in a cover-up of information that demands urgent attention from the public, the U.S. Congress and the courts."
