SIBEL EDMONDS' DEPOSITION: VIDEO AND TRANSCRIPT RELEASED http://tinyurl.com/nspou9
One might suspect this huge scandal would be all over the mainstream media [at least YouPorn]. It is not. It is not a good idea to admit the media and the government betray the nation in fundamental ways.

That is, nobody in America is paying attention.
From one side of the globe to the other, as expected, the explosive whistleblower allegations concerning highly-placed, well-known U.S. officials in the Departments of State and Defense involved in an illicit, for-profit scheme to develop and protect a network of spies, who then stole and sold American nuclear secrets to the international black markets via Turkey, Israel and Pakistan, is now worldwide news!
That, even though the Times only covered "about 20%" of the story she has to tell, according to Edmonds, with whom we spoke late last night.
Sunday's British blockbuster, detailing how nuclear secrets were then proliferated to Iran, Libya, North Korea, and potentially even al-Qaeda, was picked up on Monday and reported by international mainstream outlets such as The Times of India, Pakistan's Daily Times, Iran's PressTV, Israel's Haaretz and even the Turkish Daily News.
Here in the United States, the mainstream media coverage included:
That's right. Nobody. None of them. Zilch. Not a one.
Edmonds told The BRAD BLOG last night that her phone had been ringing of the hook since the Times story hit. From reporters around the globe, she said. As to America: "Not a single mainstream media channel, not even a newspaper."
And you wonder how our country got into this mess?
Edmonds was no longer amazed by it all. We still are.
(Hat-tip to MizgÃ®n, a Kurdish blogger at RastÃ®, for her collection of foreign press articles covering the Sunday Times story. Note: MizgÃ®n also has some harsh words for the coverage of our friend Larisa Alexandrovna of RAW STORY at that same link. We are friends with Alexandrovna, and are thus likely compromised on this point. So we'll stay out of it for now and let each of them deal with the particulars as they see fit.)
UPDATE 6:22pm PT Credit where it's due. Independent American broadcast media outlet, INN World Report, seen on some satellite TV providers, covered the report in detail, including an interview with yours truly...

To me, the task is clear. We have an immense number of videos, broadcasts and media outlets that disclose the absolute betrayal of our country. Our citizens should learn of this. In one or two imposing lumps, the full story would cause indigestion and sleep. The story finds an audience more readily if we present it in delectable parts.
