August 8, 2009 Sibel Edmonds gave 4 hours of testimony, naming members of Congress, and State and Defense Dept officials as being complicit in treason, trafficking in arms and nuclear secrets, money laundering, bribery, blackmail, obstruction of justice, cover up and more. The 4 hours of video and well over 200 pages of transcript are a lot to wade through, but Brad Friedman is taking the time to pull out some of the devastating details, that so far no ‘mainstream’ media, and only a few alt/indy media, have seen fit to report on, and no member of Congress or US government official has commented on:
It has now been over a week since the video tape and transcript from the remarkable 8/8/09 deposition of former FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds was publicly released. Previously, the Bush Administration invoked the so-called “state secrets privilege” in order to gag Edmonds, in attempting to keep such information from becoming public.
The under-oath, detailed allegations include bribery, blackmail, espionage and infiltration of the U.S. government of, and by current and former members of the U.S. Congress, high-ranking State and Defense Department officials and agents of the government of Turkey. The broad criminal conspiracy is said to have resulted in, among other things, the sale of nuclear weapons technology to black market interests including Pakistan, Iran, North Korea, Libya and others.
Even as many of these allegations had been previously corroborated to varying extents, by a number of official government reports, documents and independent media outlets (largely overseas), not a single major mainstream media outlet in the U.S. has picked up on Edmonds’ startling claims since her deposition has been made fully available.
One of the best things concerned Citizens can do to defend the Republic and hold corrupt public officials accountable is simply to share the information; please forward and repost the link, and tell your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
It’s also our civic duty to demand that Congress and the DOJ take action to root out and prosecute treason and corruption, and that the media do their job by reporting the news; sure, they don’t care- but we need to let them know WE care.
And by now you’ve probably noticed the many similarities between the Obama and Bush administrations, and the near total failure of both the Democrats and Republicans in Congress to serve the public interest, even though they consistently serve the corporate interests. If you have any ideas for alternatives to the Republocrats, let me know- but voting for the ‘lesser evil’ has not resulted in anything good.
