Not a Kennedy post... Are people listening to Sibel Edmonds Deposition???? Explosive world changing.
Edited on Wed Aug-26-09 09:30 PM by mirrera
PLEASE put your grief aside as soon as you can over all the recent deaths, and go to:http://www.bradblog.com/?p=7374
and for the first time ever Sibel Edmonds names names. We have treason going on in the biggest and boldest way possible and no one is paying attention.
Spread it!

Video Number 3 is blowing my mind...

4. The videos have been posted for a couple of days
It's hard to believe that this isn't getting more attention. They are spell-binding. Our national security is like swiss cheese.
The level of corruption and foreign infiltration in high places is frightening.

5. I am on my 3rd day of listening. Makes the Watergate hearings seem like the Brady Bunch.
This is mind blowing. I have embedded the videos on my blog because they should be spread around.

so they have gotten more emboldened, why we need prosecutions and jail time.

112. Then . . .
you don't understand Watergate --

it was an attempt to politicize government agencies -- John Dean, for one was pushing

that to handle their "enemies."

Bribe FBI officials --

And then there was the Huston Plan -- kinda part II of Operation Northwoods!

It was a criminal administration as much as the Bush/Cheney administration and Nixon

paved the way for them.

Nixon was one of the participants in the meeting at Murchinson's house the evening before

the JFK assassination. See Madelaine Brown/LBJ Mistress/YouTube

A meeting which Helen Thomas gave sworn testimony to in an affidavit she filed after the

assassination.

Nixon may have also had something to do with Chappaquiddick ... see the WH tapes where

John Dean comments to Nixon "wouldn't Ted Kennedy be shocked to learn of the bear trap

he's walking into." That was the Friday before the Chappaquiddick weekend.

IMO, Nixon/Humphrey was just another GOP stolen election --

In fact, the large computers used by MSM -- think Fox/John Ellis -- and the individual

electronic voting machines began to come in about the time we passed The Voting Rights Act!

Two journalists investigated computer fraud in Florida and wrote a book on it --

6. It is bad timing unfortunately. Teddy's death is overshadowing it
I wish it had come out at a different time, either a few weeks earlier or a few weeks later. Later is probably better, when the Senate is back in Session.

I am listening to the opposing Lawyer ask about her background and she is only more impressive. I guess he hasn't read enough Bugliosi books. You don't ask a question if you don't know what the response will be.

22. I have only watched the first one as I haven't had time
yet to watch the others. She is very impressive and extremely intelligent. I will watch all of them. Her story is incredible and some of the names she mentions come up in the Abramoff affairs also.

I cannot understand why Congress had ignored this story. Especially those who initially listened to her and said she was very credible. I wonder if they received a warning to stop 'or else'.

Thanks to Brad et al who kept this story alive. I hope it gets lots of attention. I will email the links to everyone I can.

already knew some of the info and could be incriminated either directly or indirectly if they got involved. It appears these people are very proficient at blackmail and have infiltrated every branch of government.

26. Just finished watching the depo....
Very well worth watching the entire deposition, particularly the redirect by Krikorian's attorney. She speaks very fluidly and confidently when not having to negotiate around Schmidt's attorney's cross examination bullshit. When allowed to speak, she speaks with the confidence that someone telling the truth has.

Again, this should be major news considering the allegations she makes, and those allegations should be investigated and prosecuted. If those go unchallenged and unreported, I think it's safe to say it's because those named would rather take their chances with the allegations just "going away" on their own.

Great pointer and link mirrera! Thanks again!

27. it's not just the MSM...
Huffpost, FDL, TPM, DKos, none of these sites are giving her deposition any play. I have heard bmaz and emptywheel over at FDL give up the "this is old news" excuse... as well as the "she's just unreliable" canard.


I wish i knew why she never gets taken seriously. Is it because she's pretty?

45. Is it because the media generally require two sources?
I'm just guessing. It seems like at least a portion of this could be independently verified and published, which could give an excuse to hint at the rest ("one source says...", etc.).

If verification is the reason, it might be because these allegations are difficult to verify or prove -- although Sibel has been very specific. My guess is that the outlets you named are working on it.

My money's on Josh Marshall to be the next to run with this story, but it wouldn't hurt to write all of the above.

72. Maybe because she was fired many years prior to any of the events...
...alleged in the Schmidt v. Krikorian trial, so there's no reason to believe she might have any relevant information to those events.

94. She never claims that she does...
...have any specific information on Schmidt, as she notes in the deposition.

She was called as an expert witness to discuss how other Congressmember have, in fact, accepted "blood money" from Turkish agents, as Krikorian has alleged about Schmidt.

So, beyond that, what's your point again??

There's no reason the MSM can't return to her story for an update, unless of course they are coerced.

After watching the first video my mind was blown. It makes me wonder how much more of this kind of illegal activity goes on in our government. She was just one translator listening to primarily Turkish organizations. I wonder what other foreign countries by out our politicians and how many more have sold out to foreign interest.

40. I am floored -- not so much by the deposition, but by the fact that
there is not a mention of this in the mainstream media. And then everyone wonders why newspapers are having trouble staying afload. Maybe it's because they're too busy covering celebrity gossip instead of actual news.

63. Yes, Chuck Todd explained it all on the Bill Maher show
to, of all people, Jeremy Scahill. The reason why the MSM doesn't do real news, like cover the Blackwater story in detail eg.

And then, he later proved his point by getting upset over a possible 'hit' to his own 'reputation' by Scahill, which as we all know, is of the utmost importance.

To cover a story like this could be career-ending. They all saw what happened to Dan Rather. It was an excellent lesson to the 'stenographer class' not to step out of line. Just smile and read the memos and you'll all be fine.

If the powers that be could bring down an icon like Rather, imagine what they could do to a Chuck Todd. Unfortunately it is Todd who has tarnished his "reputation" and I'm not sure he'll survive it.

44. Kennedy's death is just convenient, if he were still hanging on there would be
some other distraction covered or manufactured to ensure most remain unaware.

53. Bruce Fein
He has been prominent in 9/11 issues 10 Downing street etc. I have seen him on panels with, the likes of Paul Krugman, Webster Tarpley, other very left anti war people. I'm shocked to hear that he represents the Turkish Defense Fund.

I've seen him on Bill Moyers and he was a very outspoken critic of the Bush Administration and its abuse of the constitution.

What part of "LaRouchies are douchebags" do you not get?

52. I've been reading the transcript
off and on in between the news. It is a lot of absorb in just one sitting. I feel like I'm reading a Tom Clancy novel.

62. Sibel is very Courageous
I see where in parts of her testimony she is nervous and anxious discussing details.

To press through that and do what needs to get done regardless of outcome, yet knowing

your life might possibly never be the same...

Thank you Sibel.

67. Astounding footage.
It is rare this much is allowed out in the general public. Props to President Obama's Justice Department for not attempting to step in and stop her deposition. The stuff she put on record, and her rock-solid credentials, make for what should be the story of the decade, if not longer.

71. Keep posting about it. Keep it alive.
Sooner or later, the Justice Department will have to prosecute SOMEBODY.

Watched the movie "A Few Good Men" again last night. They made a big, hairy deal about Col. Jessup ordering a "Code Red." I kept thinking, "That is such small potatoes compared to what has happened since."

Edited on Thu Aug-27-09 08:50 PM by cascadiance
They are on this page at the bottom where the article ends along with the PDF link there. they are in Acrobat Flash format, which for in-line players are a pain without pause and fast forward/rewind features, but at least you can play through them OK.

http://newsdemocrat.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=1&ArticleID=128898&TM=58793.69

which was referenced on my original post on them I put up on Monday this week...

78. I'm reading the transcript
It goes alot faster, and I can bypass all of Fein's objections. I have no idea why a guy like Fein who was so worried about the constitution under Bush would be acting this way.

Anyway, I'm on page 80 and so far nothing truly new so far (to me). She has talked about bribery, sexual blackmail, infiltration of the FBI, espionage, US politicians giving info to Turkey, etc. But that is all stuff I've heard before from Edmonds.

Nonetheless, the fact that the ex-speaker of the house (Hastert) took bribes and may have been sexually blackmailed should be news. It isn't though.

100. Reading the transcript and already the same
names are coming to light...

" She came to my house with
13 her husband, who at the time was Major Douglas
14 Dickerson, and he identified himself first as
15 the officer for Air Force, but later said that
16 his real task was operations involving records
17 procurements by countries in Central Asia and
18 Turkey, and that he directly worked with
19 Douglas Feith and Paul Wolfowitz. "

this is going to be very interesting.

101. What a sad state of affairs.
I read the full transcript; talk about shock and awe. This is only ONE country and not even a national security issue (armenian genocide, as sad as that is in and of itself)! These pols talk to us on their high moral horses then turn around and make these backroom deals. This made me very, very sad. No wonder greedy capitalists see it fit to operate under our system of government. Life in these United States is truly about the almighty dollar, and whatever it can buy.
