Turkey decided to clamp down on several web sites the last week of March for exposing a recently leaked discussion by high-ranking government officials. The controversial recording captured a planned false flag incident that would justify Turkey’s military intervention into bordering Syria. This leak, and the government’s response to try to silence its dissemination, has significant implications of global importance. It appears this NATO country is willing to attack itself if it would further its leaders’ political agenda, and in the process, inadvertently help expose another example of mainstream media censorship.
Control of information is one of the most important tools the state uses to manipulate the public. The war on the Internet over the last few years is a prime example of why those like Edward Snowden are feared in the halls of power. It is not the unveiling of legitimate state secrets, but the unveiling of constitutional abuses and corruption at all levels of government that those in power fear. Evil men with political power seek the safety of darkness that the Internet now threatens to illuminate. In the age of social media, it is getting harder for corruption, like this recent Turkish revelation, to be controlled. Unfortunately, in response, dishonest governments are fighting back with media blackouts.
When it comes to this particular NATO partner, it appears that creating a false flag incident is something that just isn’t important enough for public discussion — at least according to traditional media outlets. Instead, these news sources are focusing their attention on the fact that web sites like Twitter and YouTube have been shut down. The real story are the reasons why. Ask yourself, Why were these websites attacked, and why is the mainstream media creating a false narrative?
The secret to magic tricks is distraction. Keep the audience’s eyes on one hand and not the other. While the world’s discussion is on Ukraine, Turkey has been exposed as willing to create a false attack that could also be used to drag the U.S. into the conflict (because of Article 5 of NATO covenants). An attack on one is an attack on all. But what if the attack was orchestrated on purpose?
The basic facts are these: the Turkish government has gone about shutting down certain sites, namely Twitter and YouTube, to prevent a verifiable leaked audio recording. In the recording, government officials discuss planning a false flag attack as a prelude to military intervention in the Syrian civil war. The plan calls for using everyone’s go-to faceless enemy, Al-Qaeda, so that the court of public opinion will never question the official story.
The full transcript of the national security meeting included such disturbing highlights as:
• Hakan Fidan: I’ll send four men from Syria, if that’s what it takes. I’ll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey; we can also prepare an attack on Suleiman Shah Tomb if necessary.
• Ahmet Davutolu: Prime Minister said that in current conjuncture, this attack (on Suleiman Shah Tomb) must be seen as an opportunity for us.
• Feridun Sinirlioğlu: That’s what I told back there. For one thing, the situation is different. An operation on ISIL has solid ground on international law. We’re going to portray this is Al-Qaeda, there’s no distress there if it’s a matter regarding Al-Qaeda. And if it comes to defending Suleiman Shah Tomb, that’s a matter of protecting our land.
The most startling moment in these transcripts is the possibility that the U.S., through Secretary of State John Kerry, possessed full knowledge of these proposed actions, gleaned from these specific comments:
• Ahmet Davutoglu: Many a times I’ve had amicable conversations with Kerry, he asked me precisely about whether we’ve agreed on a final decision on this strike.
• Yasar Guler: Yes, we made up our minds 100 times with USA.
These revelations have caused even staunch Obama supporters, like the DailyKos, to conclude that John Kerry is actually encouraging the Turkish invasion of Syria. So much for the integrity and transparency of our Nobel Peace Prize administration.
The solution to today’s problems involve more sunlight and less darkness. This has shown to be the best disinfectant to corruption over time.
The mainstream media has decided against telling the public about this plan for a false flag event, employing vague and nondescript terms to distract the public from understanding what’s really going on behind the scenes. This compromised journalistic community has intentionally omitted this front page-worthy news from their reports. And at what cost? After all, this is WAR we are talking about here.
Deliberately planning to fool not just its citizens, but also the world community at-large, the other egregious omission is the blaming of the false attack on the usual scapegoat, Al-Qaeda. Additionally, the disturbingly real possibility that the U.S. possessed full knowledge of this intent and may even be supportive of such tactics, is not something honest journalists accidentally forget to include. This is blatant media censorship.
These are the words used to describe the WHY from a few establishment news sources:
• Reuters describes the contents of the leak as “discussing possible military operations in Syria”
• Fox Business refers to “voice recordings discussing Syria”
• The Jerusalem Post calls it “a possible operation to secure the tomb of Suleymen Shah”
Attacking your own holy site, in the interest of starting a war that is based on a lie, definitely fits the definitions of “securing” and “discussing” — at least according to the George Orwell 1984 dictionary. “Nefarious,” “illegal,” and “criminal” would be much more suitable if trying to convey what Turkey really had in mind.
The solution to today’s problems involve more sunlight and less darkness. This has shown to be the best disinfectant to corruption over time. As we have seen in the white-washed pages of history, politicians will even resort to the deaths of their own citizens if it furthers some distorted view of “national interest.” Turkey is showing us the path taken by governments that view its citizens as nothing more than sacrificial lambs on the altar of their Utopian ideals. We can only hope that the American public can learn more of what’s going on to prevent yet another colossal mistake in the Middle East, and be on guard so as not to trust the official dialog of leaders with ulterior motives.
