11. Yeah pretty freaking amazing
the info she had to tell. I'd been following this for a long time now and knew it had a lot to do with Hassert and Turkey and bribery, but the blackmail and Brewster Jennings info were both new to me. Glad this info is FINALLY getting out. Now I wonder if ANY news media will have the balls to cover it at all? Hopefully Keith or Rachel will. (Bradblog.com did a GREAT job live blogging this all day today.)

6. In the article they mention a term 'a hooking exercise' the term usually used
for using people to get blackmail evidence on other people using the method mentioned is usually called a honey trap.

Wonder why they choose the new label for that type of activity in the article.

It also might be of interest for people to read the Church Committee report from 1974 that showed much illegal activity including various agencies gathering blackmail evidence against groups.

9. This is what was stated in the link....
...."Bruce Fein, the attorney for Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH) --- who began all of this with her complaint at the Ohio Election Commission against David Krikorian, claiming he made "false statements" by alleging she took "blood money" from Turkish interests to suppress a vote in the U.S. House on the Armenian Genocide resolution --- "

18. Sibel EDMONDS is a heroine. I admire her with my whole being. I hope
she finally gets to testify to Congress and tell it like it is. I am tired of the OLD BOY network protecting their own.
