There’s a new issue of The American Conservative going to press today, and it includes a story that will make more than a few congressmen and foreign lobbyists intensely uncomfortable: an in-depth interview between Phil Giraldi and FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds. She tells us exactly how Turkish intelligence have penetrated national secrets, suborned government officials, and blackmailed Congress. It’s going to be explosive.

Also in the issue: Jesse Walker on the five faces of Jerry Brown, the once and (maybe) future governor of California; Kelley Vlahos on where the Taliban gets its money (hint: check your wallet); W. Jams Antle III on the trouble with David Brooks and the reform cons; Lewis McCrary profiles “Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist farmer” Joel Salatin; and much more. Columns by Buchanan, Kauffman, Reid, and Tushnet. Reviews by Michael Burleigh, William Niskanen, Andro Linklater, John Schwenkler, and Leon Hadar. All this, plus a special tribute to Victor Davis Hanson…
