Is there a synopsis of the revelations from Sibel yet? Here's what I know so far:
It's a very busy day for me but not too busy to try to keep one eye on Sibel's deposition. I was reading BradBlog and these are the revelations I was able to glean:

* " Burton (R-IN), described as basically accepting bribes and involved in espionage for the Turkish government...she could not discuss the extremely illegal activities that Mr. Burton committed against U.S. interests, as she put it."

* "Also, a current female Democratic member of Congress who has been blackmailed by the Turkish Government...called a 'hooking exercise'...she's apparently bi-sexual and they bugged her apartment, she's married with children, and they set up a relationship with another female who went in and had sexual relationships with her. And they had all the episodes bugged within this current Representatives home and they blackmailed her." In relation to the Armenian Genocide Resolution.

* " Livingston (R-TX), Hastert (R-IL), Dick Gephardt (D-MO), other non-Congressional members, people like Brent Scowcroft, other appointed members of the U.S. government." (Seemingly, again, in regards to the Armenian Genocide Resolution)

But I'm not seeing a whole lot more that doesn't involve the Turkish government and their influence within the U.S. government- in regards to the Armenian Genocide Resolution. Either I'm missing something, or the scope of her deposition has not been revealed, or the scope of the questions was such that no more "broader" bombshells will come of this, or I misunderstood what the nature of her critical information was in the first place. I always thought she posessed information about the workings of the U.S. government in regards to the war on terror. E.g. Information she was required to translate giving her a clearer picture of what was going on- or not going on.

Can anyone help sort this out or, say, like point me to an article which does a good job outlining the "kinds" of things she has information on? If this whole deal winds up being something akin to "The Turkish government has manipulated and blackmailed the U.S. Congress in order to, among other things, manipulate the vote on the Armenian Genocide Resolution"...well, that's a blockbuster but not by a longshot what I was expecting.

For instance, the "Allegations" on her Wiki page seem much broader. Did any of that information come out? Anything to do with 911 Foreknowledge, Turkey and/or Israel (or anyone else for that matter) actually purchasing nuclear secrets from U.S. government/military officials- which is much more explosive, IMO.

6. Dem. Bradblog followed up on that.
I was unable to follow up that statement with a question, before she got into a cab, but was able to track her down on her cell thereafter

First, I asked if she specified whether the sitting bi-sexual married Congresswoman who had been taped sleeping with a woman, without knowing, and then bribed by Turkish interests with the tape, to vote against the Armenian Genocide resolution had been a Democrat or a Republican. She said she is a Democrat and that she testified to that during her deposition. (See Krikorian's long statement above for more details on that woman).

7. Any guesses on that? If she didn't have to hide her bi-sexuality we'd all be better off!!
