The Thinned-Skinned Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan Cannot Resist Arresting/Imprisoning American/Foreign/Turkish Journalists!
Congratulations to NYTimes Turkish Correspondent Ceylan Yeginsu, who was branded a “TRAITOR AND FOREIGN AGENT” in retaliation for publishing an article with photos detailing how Erdogan is recruiting ISIS terrorists right in the middle of Ankara.
My old nemesis, Erdogan, never fails to demonstrate his underlying dictatorial streaks of sadistic and ruthless repugnance for anyone who might reveal the truth about his double dealings with the American public. Erdogan enjoys making money from selling oil to “ISIS”; as well as creating the ‘necessary recruits for ISIS’ right in the middle of the most crowded section of Ankara, the Capital of Turkey.
In an article written by Rick Gladstone, NYTimes, 9/20/2014, entitled, “Turkish President’s Allies Increasing Pressure on Times and Reporter” states the following:
“It was the photograph in particular, which showed President Erdogan visiting a mosque in Ankara, Turkey’s capital, that appeared to be the catalyst for the backlash against the NYTimes and Ms Yeginsu.”
“…. The photograph implied a connection between the Turkish Government and the ISIS…”
“Erdogan called the article….. “DESPICABLE , VILE , SHAMELESS….”
ISIS is not a threat to which American bombers have to drop incendiary bombs or fly dangerous missions but rather it is a problem in which our glorious, confused military/industrial complex as well as the Executive Branch have to decide one telling factor: Will we or will we not, punish our Sunni Allies for creating, aiding, and abetting ISIS, the very group which our ‘culture of misinformation’—the ignoble CIA created and maintains? The answer lies not in our military prowess but in our willingness to admit our past mistakes; correct them; and then prevent our Sunni Allies and Israel from any further assistance to ISIS.
As much as our intelligence community likes to portray themselves as selfless, courageous heroes in endless TV shows [Homeland, Assets et. al.] and Movies [Argo, Zero Dark Thirty], they are bereft of any capacity or will to ‘neutralize’ anyone or anything other than Senator Diane Feinstein’s investigations into the ineptness of the CIA.
John Brennan and Erdogan stand side by side in terms of anti-American enmity and dishonesty. One is Turkish. The other is born of a ‘bad seed’ from the bowels of the Directorate of Intelligence Analysis [useless] and fed with the milk of egregious political compliance and hierarchical servitude. We don’t have to go 16000 miles away to seek our ISIS enemies. Just look inward toward Langley, Virginia as well as Ankara/Istanbul, Turkey. Yes, our enemies are right here at home and in Turkey. No need to use our soldiers to rid of us of these two menaces!!!
Thank you goes to: Ms Yenginsu; Joel Simon, the Committee to Protect Journalists; Amberin Zaman, the local correspondent for The Economist; Ivan Watson, CNN International and Selin Girit and Rengin Arslan of the BBC. You are truly courageous individuals!!
So Long to: Erdogan and John Brennan. Your collective dictatorships are coming to an end.
