9/11 Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds' Testimony Under Oath Now Available On Video

Whistleblower deposed in Schmidt versus Krikorian election complaint
Sibel Edmonds finally gets to tell her story

Source: newsdemocrat.com


Ohio Second District Congresswoman Jean Schmidt, R-Cincinnati, filed nine election complaints against independent candidate David Krikorian concerning the 2008 election in May this year.

Krikorian opposed Schmidt in the Second District Congressional race as an independent in 2008 and is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 2010 race in April. The complaints focus on Krikorian's statements during the election stating that Rep. Schmidt was taking money from organizations related to the Turkish government in exchange for denying the occurrence of what Krikorian called the Armenian Genocide at the hands of the Turks during World War I.

The complaints also relate to Election Commission records on campaign contributions Schmidt received from the Turkish American Heritage PAC and the Turkish Coalition USA PAC.

Since filing the complaints, Schmidt's counsel has withdrawn four complaints, and an Ohio Elections Commission three-person panel decided there was probable cause to hear the remaining complaints on Thursday, Aug. 13. The five remaining complaints will be reviewed by the entire Commission on Sept. 3.

In preparation for the Sept. 3 hearing, Krikorian's lawyer requested a subpoena for well known whistleblower and former interpreter for the FBI, Sibel Edmonds. The OEC declined to enforce the subpoena, however Edmonds agreed to speak to Krikorian and Schmidt's lawyers on a voluntary basis.

The video deposition was brought forward by Krikorian's counsel to provide background on the alleged involvement of the Turkish government in Congressional affairs through blackmail, bribery, and campaign contributions filtered through various organizations. Edmonds also describes Turkish infiltration of the Pentagon and Air Force.

Edmonds' deposition is significant because she has twice been "gagged" by a State Secrets exemption from testifying for a 9/11 investigation and a Congressional hearing.

By various Internet bloggers she has been called the most gagged woman in the U.S.

"We were very surprised she was allowed to testify," said Krikorian about the deposition. "She was gagged twice under the Bush Administration and we have received several threatening letters from the FBI and the Department of Justice. To Obama's and to Eric Holder the Attorney General's credit she was allowed to testify."

As the Sept. 3 OEC hearing approaches, the depositions continue. Licoln McGurdy, Treasurer of the Turkish Coalition USA PAC was the recent subject of a deposition and Schmidt was to be deposed Monday, Aug. 24.

Edmonds (who is Turkish-American) called as a witness for Krikorian (who is Armenian-American) testified to infiltration, bribery, corruption, and blackmail within the U.S. Government, by current and former members of the U.S. House and other high ranking officials, on behalf of Turkish interests.

Schmidt, the co-chair of the Congressional Turkish Caucus filed the complaint with the OEC alleging "false statements" by Krikorian when he alleged she had taken "blood money" from those opposed to a Congressional declaration of Armenian Genocide by the Turks during WWI. There are claims by Krikorian that Schmidt took more money from Turkish interests during the 2008 campaign than any other House candidate.

Below is the video deposition by Edmonds. Some serious charges are made in this deposition, this newspaper/website provides this as public information that readers/viewers may develop their own opinions and understandings of the subject. Note most of Edmonds' deposition is relevant to a time period previous to Rep. Schmidt taking office.

This is just...

Unreal. I've been watching for about an hour now... the opposing lawyer objected to so much...

Edit: Here's what I wrote on Facebook.

"Ya know... the 9/11 Commission listened to what Sibel Edmonds had to say in a SCIF for 3 1/2 hours, and she received a footnote in the back of the book. They didn't push for investigations into any of the allegations. Not that I know of. They simply brushed it under the rug. That is so criminal."

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

Behrooz Sarshar and Bin Laden

At 11:55, on the 1st video, after the 1st break, Sibel is asked about her claim of US govt/FBI/DOJ IG had documents from April 01 showing Bin Laden was planning attacks on 4-5 US cities with planes and operatives were already in the country; Sibel clarifies this info came from Sarshar's translation from an Iranian asset's info, and she took Sarshar to the 9/11 Commission, and also reported this to the DOJ IG.

EDIT- When asked if this was why the 9/11 families wanted her to testify, she says she's not sure- that she thought it had to do with Saudi Arabia's financing of Al Qaeda...

I just discovered that the 'rewind' button takes you all the way back to the beginning of the segment...

this thing needs to be downloaded- if anyone has a .flv converter that works, please grab it!!!!

I sure wish i could get the transcript....

.................Doesn't this make you want to puke? Your a good man, and your efforts are noble. This make me so sad that our country can do this.

Yes, and thanks.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

great find!

bradblog doesn't even have this up yet.

Can this video be downloaded????

Has anyone been able to download the transcript?????

I'm getting an access denied message and though i've entered the captcha text correctly a dozen times, it won't send the contact form. Strangely, a similar message appears at that site as far back as Aug 2007


Boy, are you gonna feel silly

silly? (EDIT- got the transcript)

this is the actual error msg i'm getting- are you getting it, or are you able to access the site and download the transcript?

no site has ever thought i was a bot or spider before...

EDIT- FINALLY, i can access the transcript (still getting the error msg at the main link)

213 pgs of testimony- and it has an index, which gives the time the words appear- awesome!

It's not hard...

When Sibel posts it on Facebook. ;)

Just after 12p- Blackmail ops got favors including nuke secrets

she goes into more detail at this point- this was touched on briefly about 11:45a


Sibel interrogated 9/11 detainees?

after 13:53 or so

translating tapes- and live at "field offices"


I don't trust this woman.

I don't trust this woman.


Care to elaborate?

“The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today -- my own government.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.

I bet I could guess...

1) She promotes "Al-Qaeda" as a legitimate organization.
2) She has such incriminating information but has kept it to herself even though by releasing it, it could have done a lot of good.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

that's a good start.

that's a good start.

Even though...

She addresses the organization of Al-Qaeda as a tool for elements within the U.S. Government? Even though she tried to do things by not breaking the law? Even though her sister in Turkey was threatened? I hope that if ever you are in the same situation she is, that you handle things as well as she has.

Edit: I bet I can even guess the third reason. That "gatekeeper" sites like DailyKos, and others have been willing to cover Sibel, therefore that means she is "safe" to the "powers that be." I'm willing to bet that it NEVER occurred to those sites what Sibel was even about other than her claim that they slowed down translations to increase budgets. They didn't understand what they had. Now that Sibel has become truly explosive, where are those sites now? Are they covering her?

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

This whole story is very murky, you could be right no doubt

Many stories are inter-twined in a complex web of lies and decete according to Sibel Edmunds (SE). She says that Mr. and Mrs Major Douglas Dickerson who worked with Douglas Feith, succeeded in blocking her complaint against Turkish Zionist forces which had penetrated the FBI, the Pentagon, and the highest levels of the US governemt.

But how far can we trust her?

SE says Turkish/Israeli collaborations were in place with USA secret pro-zionist interests at the Pentagon (Douglas Feith et al) to de-stabalise Russian hinterland in Central Asia. In return, Nuclear, intelligence, funding, arms, and narco traffic privelages were in place as rewards in the other direction in the favour of Turkish and Israeli interests.

That is pobably true. After all Turkey is a loyal NATO member, and an ally of Israel, and the USA war on terror.

According to an Armenian News site however, it was Wayne Madsen who outed Jan Schakowsky (Démocrate-Illinois) as the poor congress woman blackmailed by the Turkish/Israeli opperation that Sibel Edmunds refers to annonymously. According to the Armenians, and to SE, she was blackmailed in part for her NOT to endorce the Armenian genocide resolution against Turkey.

But the story could be wider.

Schakowski had opposed the Iraq War Resolution, opposed private military contractors, and opposed U.S. Israeli policy. And remember she was a founding member of the Out-of-Iraq Caucus.

Schakowski could have been outed by the Bush faction just as well, like Velery Plame Wilson, and her Brewster Jennings Associats, that CIA front company that was outed by Mr. Grossman the former USA ambassador to Turkey and the highest ranking official in the state department for operations in Central Asia, because of the called bluff on the Niger-Iraq Yellow cake lies of Colin Powel fame.

"Schakowsky was “set up” by the Turkish Lobby, working in concert with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), to “control her.”
"... Schakowsky noticeably “backed off” many issues, including the role of private military companies."

"In January 2007, after the Democrats captured the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed Schakowsky to be a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence. Currently, Schakowsky is chair of the House Select Committee on Intelligence’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations -- which puts her in a conflict-of-interest in investigating Turkish and related Israeli intelligence penetration of the FBI and State Department, as stated under oath by Edmonds, and the paying of bribes by Turkish government interests to current and former members of Congress."I quote Wayn Madsen

Meanwhile please note that on July 17, 2009, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-IL, Chairwoman of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Investigations & Oversight, issued the following statement to announce a full investigation into certain CIA programs and the Congressional notification process.

“The House Intelligence Committee will move forward with a full investigation that will explore certain CIA programs and the core issue of how the committee is kept informed. My subcommittee will take the lead on significant portions of the investigation; we will explore instances where the Congress was not informed in a timely way and situations in which laws may have been broken.

Could there be a power struggle going on? Could Sibel Edmunds be working to dissiminate popaganda against the anti-Bush camp?

Your comments are worthy of merit. At least worthy of informed discussion rather than just negatives from people who probably did not listen to the tapes. The transcript by the way incrypts all mention of AIPAC to APAC or ATAC. Did you notice that too?

Here's a pretty big update...


Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?
