Sibel Edmonds Deposition: Deep Corruption Beneath the Surface

Aug 8, 2009, Sibel Edmonds gave a sworn deposition in which she testified to her knowledge of treasonous crimes and corruption involving current and former members of Congress and State and Defense Dept. officials. Given the nature of the deposition, the lines of questioning focused on Turkish espionage and services obtained through bribery and blackmail by Turkish officials and proxies.

Edmonds learned of these things from wiretaps she listened to while working as a translator for the FBI in 2001-2002.
