The article discloses the many links between terrorist organization and US government figures, drug running, illegal weapons and technology sales, US agents pressuring the Sunday Times to stop running a series of related reports, other coverups, and many attempts to stop people from revealing government involvement in these activities, especially Sibel Edmonds, by using the "state secrets privilege".
...according to Edmonds...the last two articles in the series were spiked under U.S. State Department pressure. She recalled being told at the time by journalists leading the Sunday Times investigation that the newspaper’s editor had decided to squash the story after receiving calls from officials at the U.S. embassy in London.
A journalist with the Sunday Times‘ investigative unit told this author he had interviewed former Special Agent in Charge, Dennis Saccher, who had moved to the FBI’s Colorado office. Saccher reportedly confirmed the veracity of Edmonds’ allegations of espionage, telling him that Edmonds’ story “should have been front page news” because it was “a scandal bigger than Watergate.”
