THE INVISIBLE CRIME – ORLANDO: CLEAR EVIDENCE OF A COVER-UP

Be a good American cut There are many (so-called „conspiracy) theories“ out there about the spectacular shooting in the Pulse gay club and this is not surprising, given that the information that has been fed to the media does not pass the  logical „smell-test.“

Many things need to be investigated i.e. the known CIA-ties of Mateen’s Afghan father; the dark and evil machinations behind G4S; the legend that Mateen was gay himself;  that he supported „IS“ ; even the suspicion, that the whole thing is a charade  with „crisis-actors“, etc.

My approach is a different one as I focus on one aspect which is DEMONSTRABLY A FRAUD and PROVES that there is a huge cover-up going on:

DID TIME STAND STILL IN ORLANDO?

In a criminal investigation the police must interrogate witnesses, collect forensic evidence, find out what exactly happened, when and why. If the available information is authentic and coherent, if the statements from witnesses corroborate each other and match the physical evidence, the police will quickly reach a conclusion and be able to bring charges against the prime suspect, to „solve“ the crime.

In this case the police need not find out who did it (or so it seems) because the „terrorist“ has already been identified and (conveniently) killed.

As usual the synthetic „terror“  is accompanied by a prefabricated, fear- and hate-inducing narrative about the motives of the „radicalized“ Muslim perpetrator which the media-parrots dutifully repeat. First you kill the „shooter“ than you assassinate his character (create a “legend”) …

But  the information that we have gotten so far about the „time-line“ of events in the Orlando night-club is not conclusive at all. Even worse, there are HUGE CONTRADICTIONS about what happened when. So let us take a closer look:

WHY  ARE  THEY  LYING  ABOUT  THE  TIME  OF  THE  ATTACK?

On June 12, a local TV-reporter in Orlando,  Stewart Moore tweeted:

Stewart bomb 20 shot 0005Source tells me suspect wearing a bomb, barricaded inside night-club, more than 20 shot with long gun“ 

This message was posted online at 00:05 (five minutes after midnight). Only 4 Minutes later Moore sends another message:

 

Moore man hostages nightclub 0009

„… Man remains barricaded inside nightclub with hostages“ (00:09)

But the police have said that the massacre (in the main room of the club) DID NOT START BEFORE 2.a.m.

If this is true, HOW COULD THIS REPORTER POSSIBLY KNOW  SO EARLY  THAT 20 PEOPLE HAD BEEN SHOT?  

Who gave him that information? How could he talk about a „hostage situation“ when according to the official statements released to the media, this happened hours later?

49 Minutes later (00:58)  the Orlando Police (OPD) also sent a message on twitter regarding „the Pulse incident:

Orlando POL tweet 0058 12JUNShooting at Pulse on S Orange, multiple injuries, stay away from area“

„Again, the time does not fit the dominant media narrative: If the police tweeted „multiple injuries“ SHORTLY BEFORE 1 A.M., then the shooting must have begun MUCH EARLIER.

So this seems to corroborate the tweet by Stewart Moore and  by one „Emilio“ published in the Daily Mail:

 

GoEmilio tweet shooting 1156„We‘re WT Pulse Orlando HIDING IN THE DRESSING ROOM THERE WAS A SHOOTING TELL THE COPS“ (11:56 p.m.)

sent SHORTLY BEFORE MIDNIGHT on June 11.

 

But if the shooting already started SOME TIME BEFORE MIDNIGHT on June 11, then how come that there are „witnesses“ who claim „I was there. Shooter opened fire at around 2:00am.?“   How many shooters were there? It simply does not add up … and there is more:

1 Independent 935 JUN 12The British newspaper, The Independent  „reports“ the DEATH of the shooter at 09:35 a.m. BST on June 12:

The shooter was killed following a four hour stand-off with Orlando police at the Pulse nightclub, having killed at least 20 people„

If I am not mistaken, 9:35 BST  (British Summer-Time) corresponds to  4:35 a.m. local Orlando time (EST 5 hour difference).

But according to Orlando Police chief Mina „…at approximately 0500 hours this morning, THE DECISION WAS MADE to rescue hostages that were in there.

Only  then did they arrange for the „controlled explosion“, knocked down a wall with an armoured verhicle, etc.

So how could this article be published about HALF AN HOUR EARLIER (local time) with the information that the hostage-taker was already dead?

The disturbing answer to this question can be found in another tweet by the OPD which clearly announces the demise of the shooter.

Orlando Police shooter dead 253So according to this statement THE KILLER WAS ALREADY DEAD at 2:53!

Then why did the police wait until 5:00 a.m. in the morning to reach the “decision to „rescue the hostages“???  WTF is going on here???

Why was there a need to „break down a wall“ anyway and wait FOR TWO HOURS before „rescuing“ anybody?

This is a complete cock and bull story. Was Mateen lying dead outside the bathroom stalls while the freaked out „hostages“ thought he was still alive? What was really going on in there?

Remember, the „hostages“ in the bathroom stalls NEVER SAW the gunman. They only HEARD shots. They saw blood on the floor. They heard that SOMEBODY was there, heard „him“ talk on the phone but there was no visual contact at all.

  • We have not seen your face ..not even heard your voice …“ (Norman CASIANO Interview )
  • He didn’t say anything. He was just shooting“ (Jeanette MCCOY; [main room shooting]; Source: Orlando Sentinel )
  • I was outside … I never saw the gunman, I never heard the gunman“  (Shawn Royster SANTIAGO, Interview )
  • We all know what happened there“ (!) (Dr. Joshua Stephany, Chief Medical Examiner (CME), Orange County, FL)

Patience Carter Pulse victimPatience CARTER stated  the shooter spoke (to them) only once, when he asked if there were any black people inside the bathroom stalls. When this was answered in the affirmative, he responded „this is not about you, you guys suffered enough, it’s about MY country“.

But she had no idea who that person really was at that time.

ANYBODY  could have made the bizarre „911“ calls, post a crazy message on facebook (there are reports that he did not even have an account before but that  „several Facebook pages with the name “Omar Mateen” appear to have been set up AFTER the terrorist attack.“) or talk to a TV-producer in New York.

We know that the Pentagon, CIA, etc. use „social media“ to manipulate public opinion, they even create fake personas and infiltrate chat rooms, fora, comment threads, etc.

Before I am going to show how ABSURD  AND SURREAL the „calls“ Mateen allegedly made („while he was slaughtering innocent people“) REALLY ARE, just one more observation:

KEPT IN THE DARK

One witness said

the gunman had begun shooting at the ceiling initially because the glass from the lights overhead was falling onto the dancefloor.

If you are a „terrorist“ who  wants to  kill as many people as possible why would you want to destroy the lights overhead before you aim at them? To shoot in the dark with a gun that can fire 700 rounds per minute in automatic mode? To „blind“ the 14 cops who allegedly have been shooting at you before (with not one hit anyway)?

Four of us still hiding. Lights are off in club. Cops are here but haven’t got us yet. (tweet by „Emilio“)

Perhaps someone wanted the „lights off“ who had „night vision“ equipment  and wanted to ensure that no-one could really identify the shooter(s) or what was really going on inside the club ..? (Most witnesses only HEARD shots … and „only for a minute“ … „for the duration of a song“

SigSauer MCX 1(I assume this is long enough to kill 50 people with the „Black Mamba“ if you are an expert killer („special forces“ team) but not for ONE MAN who was a puny security guard AND wanted to be a police officer , a fact which is rarely mentioned in the media )

Here are 3 remarkable statements from witnesses:

Jon ALAMO had been dancing at the Pulse for hours when he wandered into the club’s main room just in time to see the gunman. “You ever seen how Marine guys hold big weapons, shooting from left to right? That’s how he was shooting at people,” he said.

One of the wounded, Angel COLON Jr, describes how [the shooter] moved through the club, shooting at each person on the ground to be SURE THEY WERE DEAD.“ (Why would he do that if he was going to commit „suicide by cop“ anyway??)

Patience CARTER:  “It sounded as IF HE WAS COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER PEOPLE who were INVOLVED WITH IT …  Maybe he was just deranged, maybe he’s just talking to himself, but I honestly feel like I DON’T THINK HE WAS ABLE TO PULL THAT OFF ALL BY HIMSELF“.

THE CRAZY PHONE CALLS

News13 transcript screenshotThe most ridiculous tale the FBI has spread are  the bizarre „911 calls“ and the call to an Orlando TV news producer. Let us have a look at the latter first. Here is an account from CBS:

CBS: „Matthew GENTILI, a producer for local cable News 13, told CBS News that Omar Mateen called the station around 2:45 a.m.“  So what did he allegedly say?

(supposedly) MATEEN: Do you know about the shooting?

(Gentili was „cut off“ by the caller but was going to say he had heard about „a shooting“ in the area; at that time he did not know about the crisis situation inside the Pulse, he was not aware of the location)

MATEEN: “I’m the shooter. It’s me. I am the shooter. (sounds like a robot)

CBS: „Gentili revealed that Mateen said he did it for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and then started to speak in Arabic.“

But in the video-clip CBS shows on the website, Gentili actually says:

„He started saying he did it for the Islamic State, (ISIS) and then he started speaking in  a foreign language..  (soundbite)

He did not say ARABIC. And people in AFGHANISTAN (where his parents come from) do not speak Arabic either, they speak mainly PASHTU or DARI  which are PERSIAN languages. Has anybody verified if Mateen was able to  speak Arabic at all?

Luckily, a complete transcript of an interview with Gentili is available here.

Here are some important excerpts:

MG: It was at 2:45 when I had just received the phone call of someone claiming to be the Orlando shooter. I answered the phone as I always do, ‘News 13 this is Matt,’ and on the other end I heard, ‘Do you know about the shooting?’ and I said ‘Yup, I’m getting information — I’m receiving some calls right now’ and he cut me off and said, ‘I’m the shooter.’ I didn’t know what to say, it was alarming to say the least. He sounded really calm on the phone and he started saying that he did it for the Islamic State — he did it for ISIS, and then he started speaking in a foreign language which at the time, being in Orlando, I thought it was maybe Spanish. But he was speaking so fast I didn’t know what it was, and thinking back now it was most likely Arabic, that he was speaking. I said ‘Sir, sir can you please speak in English?’ and then he started saying ‘I did it for ISIS, I did it for the Islamic State’ again. I didn’t know what to say to him. I was just blown away, and I asked him ‘Who is this? Where are you?’ and he told me that’s none of my effing business. He wouldn’t tell me who he was, he wouldn’t tell me where he was, but he wanted me to know that he did this for ISIS, he did this shooting for the Islamic State.”

COMMENT:

How crazy is it (surrounded by corpses or dying people) to call a journalist, tell him „I DID IT, IT WAS ME, I DID IT!“ but refuse to say one’s name??? Can anyone believe this surreal nonsense? (Was Gentili posssibly „talking“ to a recording? Or to a programmed „Manchurian candidate“?)

Then the interviewer asks him if he heard anything in the background during the call (to hint at or verify the location):

MG:  “You know, when I think back, it’s really surprising, I heard nothing– I heard silence. I feel like if I would have heard sirens or anything in the background it would have been more telling to me, that, you know- how severe this call really was and I heard nothing, I heard nothing on the other end except from him.”

Absolute silence? With all these suffering victims around … no muffled cries for help, no sounds of desperation, of pain, of fear? No crying … no sounds from cell-phones (constant messaging going on)…. no sounds from the police? How is that possible?

NOW PLAYING: FBI-THEATER OF THE ABSURD

But if you thought this sounds weird, you „ain’t seen nothing yet“: here comes the latest insult on our intelligence from – you guessed it – the FBI.

They had the audacity to release a „partial transcript“ of the 911-calls Mateen allegedly made „during the massacre“. MyNews13 provides the following summary:

  • FBI provides partial timeline of events the night of the Pulse shootings
  • FBI: Mateen talked to 911 dispatcher in ‘chilling, calm and deliberate manner’
  • Mateen said he wanted US to stop bombing Syria, Iraq.

Now we have already seen (above)  that the official „Timeline of events“ is a cruel joke so how do the  redacted „data“ released by the FBI fit into this blurry picture? They put a final nail in the coffin of the official narrative as you will soon find out.

The FBI claims that Mateen made the first 911-call at „about“ 2:35 a.m. on June 12 and this is what he allegedly said:

2 FBI redacted transcript 911 callOne might be excused for thinking this weird „dialogue“ was taken out of an absurdist drama script:

„The Absurd in these plays takes the form of man’s reaction to a world apparently without meaning, and/or man as a puppet controlled or menaced by invisible outside forces“ (wikipedia)

3 FBI redacted transcript 911 Pulse 2Precisely.

 

I am sure you noticed that AGAIN the caller REFUSED TO GIVE HIS NAME (and it does not say „omitted“ there) and also his exact location.

I am certain you have also got the impression that the statements from the alleged perpetrator sound very robotic, like a half-wit, not really like an intelligent human-being  (MK Ultra, anyone?) Or was it a recorded message?

Now the forensic value of this released fragment  by the FBI as authentic evidence for their claims is of couse ZERO.

We have no way of knowing whether this wording is accurate, whether it was really Mateen who called 911, an FBI-agent or Santa Claus. The fact, that they refuse to release THE ACTUAL RECORDING of the phone calls are a clear sign that we are being hoodwinked on a grand scale but this has become routine after „911“.

If it weren’t so serious (the „deep state“ does it again … kill with impunity) the whole thing would be absolutely ludicrous: Just read this:

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

„The FBI said it intentionally omitted the name of the shooter and the group to whom he pledged allegiance“ (!)

jens_jerndal faux terror may2015WTF??? And why would that be necessary? First they spread information which makes everybody accept the claim that Mateen was the caller (and the killer). They also release information about his „pledge of alliance to IS, their „leader“, the phony Bagdadi, the Tsarnaev-brothers:

„The FBI says the gunman who attacked a gay nightclub in Orlando called the Boston Marathon bombers his “homeboys.”(?)

but now they prefer not to confirm these statements IN WRITING –  to avoid incriminating themselves?

What’s the point of RELEASING A REDACTED / CENSORED  „CONFESSION“ ANYWAY? How stupid do they think we really are?

 CRISIS NEGOTIATIONS WITH A ZOMBIE?

 „At least three crisis negotiations occurred after the 911 call, during which Mateen identified himself as an Islamic soldier and told the negotiator to tell America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq and that was why he was “out here right now,” the FBI said.

COMMENT: the „caller“ not only refused to give his name, he also avoided mentioning his actual location. How  utterly bizarre.

With regard to the „Stop bombing“ demand, a clarification is necessary:

CNN: „Patience Carter and others hiding in the bathroom HEARD mateen dial 911 and say he’s “doing this is because he wants America to stop bombing HIS country.” (Mateen’s parents are from AFGHANISTAN. He was born in New York.)“

We can all hear what she said on the YouTube videos. She did say „HIS country“. Again, why not release the actual recordings of the 911 calls, if these statements are true? We all know the answer …

We are not in any way trying to hide anything” US Attorney Lee Bentley  (No kidding!)

AMERICA IS AirforceSo obviously, the FBI is distorting the facts here:  they want to establish a connection with the brutal, insidious and cowardly  US-proxy war against Syria (SOLD to the public as a democratic uprising against an evil dictator who cannot be defeated without more foreign military „intervention“) and the US-SAUDI-ISRAELI orchestrated chaos in Iraq.

This fabricated „revenge“-theme serves also to create the (false) impression that the US is actually bombing IS when it is only Russia who really fights against those bastards.

LET’s DO THE TIME-WARP AGAIN

3 FBI redacted transcript 911 Pulse 2Let’s recap the „timeline“ of the FBI: (shooting begins after 2.a.m. which is contradicted by many tweets, a few of them shown above)

  • At 2:35 shooter called 911 – „hung up“; called again – hung up. Is called back by 911 dispatcher (3 calls was the original story. Now we suddenly have FOUR calls) But this does not make sense because
  • At 2:45 shooter called News13 and talked to Matthew Gentili (who can prove time of call with  phone records).
  • At 2:53 OPD sends tweet „shooter is dead“ (If this was not Mateen, who was it???)

Orlando Police shooter dead 253So how could Matteen engage in more „crisis negotiations“ after 3.a.m. when he was no longer alive? Are we talking about two different persons here? Who actually made these bizarre calls?

 

FALSE BOMB SCARE

„Mateen told crisis negotiators that a vehicle outside the club “has some bombs,” and that he would ignite them if they “try to do anything stupid.” (?) The FBI said Monday that no explosives were found inside or outside Pulse the night of the shooting.

At about 4:21 a.m., Orlando Police officers pulled out an air conditioning unit from a window of a Pulse dressing room to let clubgoers get out, according to investigators. Orlando Police Chief John Mina said Monday that about eight people were saved through that window. As the clubgoers were being rescued, they told officers that the shooter inside said he was going to put explosive vests on people in 15 minutes.“ (Source: MyNews13)

COMMENT: Well, according to OPD, the „shooter“ was already dead at 2:53. So who was making „this threat“? Another shooter? A diversion to cover something up inside the club?

And HOW could this person have carried all these explosives, a (91cm) assault-rifle, several magazines, etc. into the club? What did security do? Look the other way? (See last paragraph for more on this)

WHY would he want to put „explosive vests on people“? (He could have just shot them) What was the purpose? If he did, then he would certainly also have died when they exploded so what’s the point?

Aren’t we supposed to think this „crazy Islamist“ wanted to die anyway? As a self-styled „hero“ who took revenge for the „innocent (IS) people“ killed by the US? This story is complete BS. And if „eight people“ could get out thru a window, why couldn’t the cops get in?

„Just after 5 a.m., OPD SWAT and Orange County Sheriff’s Office hazardous device teams set off an explosive charged to breach a wall and used an armored vehicle to try to get inside the club.“

Why the need to install „explosive charges“ and break down another wall? Why indeed, when the (original) shooter was already dead???

I think this phony „bomb-scare“ inside the club was necessary to prevent medics, „innocent“ (not-in-the-loop) cops and reporters from coming too close to the crime-scene. As we have seen from the artificial „time-line“ something inside the Pulse had to be covered up, time needed to be gained before the „hostage-situation“ would be over.

THIS IS THE FINAL BOMBSHELL

“Upon that entry of our officers, there was NO OTHER GUNFIRE until the hostage rescue situation took place,” Mina said. “During that three hours I want to make sure everyone is clear: THERE WAS NO GUNFIRE.

Wait a minute: Do I understand this correctly?  The police-chief says that there was NO GUNFIRE „during that three hours“ – what exactly does he mean? (Mateen allegedly started to kill people between 2 an 2:20 so are the “three hours” a Freudian slip of the tongue, indicating the “shooting” happened much earlier?

Between 2 and 5 a.m.  THERE WAS NO GUNFIRE????  He meant after the initial shooting in the middle section of the club reported shortly after 2 a.m by one officer. Then the gunman allegedly „withdrew“ into the rest room where 20-30 people were taking cover.

Then why did witnessses say someone shot people INSIDE THE STALLS? And that someone DIED outside the stalls in the bathroom? (pools of blood on floor… was it Mateen who died there??? And then fake calls were placed to make it appear he was still alive?

  • So WHOSE SHOTS did the „hostages“ hear outside the stalls? Whose shots killed some people inside the stalls?
  • Which cop reported „shooter is dead“ at 2:53??? (And if it was not Mateen who died then, how many shooters where actually there?)

news13 OPD statement shots bathroomFBI: „Based on OPD radio communications THERE WERE NO REPORTS OF SHOTS INSIDE THE BATHROOM  (after officers entered the club to „engage“ shooter ostensibly at 2:08 a.m.).

So Mateen just talked on the phone  to the cops …(!) but they will not say what he „demanded“ during those „crisis negotiations“?  WTH is going on here? If he just talked then who killed the people inside the bathroom stalls???

MYNEWS13: „Questions concerning reports of SHOTS FIRED INSIDE THE BATHROOM (where the gunman was „barricaded“) were dismissed as part of the ongoing investigation“ ???????????????? 

DEADLY SILENCE

 „Also Monday, the Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office said it had released Mateen’s body from the office. At the request of the FBI, no further information will be available REGARDING THE SHOOTER’S AUTOPSY REPORT, who the body was released to and when the body was released, the office said.“

COMMENT: You bet. The autopsy report must clarify the actual TIME OF DEATH and the precise CAUSE OF DEATH. The CME  Orange County Pathologist did the autopsy ALONE („by myself“ as he admitted on video) with no-one witnessing the proceedings.

In this hugely political case the post mortem report has explosive content  so it can be expected that the autopsy would be painstakingly correct. So why do it alone and then keep the results under wraps? (Again, the answer is obvious…)

„The trauma medical director, Dr. Joseph Ibrahim, says the only thing he would change is that more victims could have gotten to the hospital sooner so that that they could have saved more people“ (Why wait for over two hours when gunman already dead at 2:53???)

JUST A REMINDER

There have been many shootings in the US over the years and normally these crimes would be classified under „homicide“. To ensure that the FBI has full control over the crime scene, the media releases and the investigations,  it had to be designated as a „terrorist act“.

WHY COULD THE SHOOTER NOT BE STOPPED BY 14 COPS?   

LANDofMakeBELIEVEAnd just one more thing … there seems to be some confusion about the role of the OPD officer who first „heard the gunshots“ at the Pulse and encountered the  shooter „ near the entrance“ (ambiguous wording for a police department but could not stop him …

His Name is Adam Gruler and he has a reputation as a „hunter“ in law enforcement circles. Gruler is reportedly feared by the „hunted“ from the poor neighbourhoods in Orlando for his alleged brutality.

As far as I can tell there are 3 versions as to what he was actually doing there: (which is rather suspicious)

 Extra-duty“ to search for a teenager with a fake ID (?)

„Music blared and more than 300 people danced and milled about Pulse nightclub early Sunday as Orlando police officer Adam Gruler searched the area for a teenager who had gotten into the club with a fake ID. He couldn’t find the kid, so he headed back to the club’s parking lot. That’s when the shots rang out. Gruler ran toward the entrance after hearing the shots…. “ (Source)

„Off-duty“, not in uniform, engaged the shooter when he heard the shots (just happened to be there?)

„Around 2 a.m, the shooter walked past the front entrance into the main dance floor, according to a witness. He turned toward the bar area and started shooting. According to police reports, AN OFF-DUTY OFFICER engaged in a firefight with the shooter (some people escape thru patio)

Police respond shortly and enter the club, exchange fire and force the shooter to retreat to the restroom and take hostages. Many people were then able to escape from other parts of the club.“ (Source)

Off-duty“: Working as a PRIVATE SECURITY GUARD at the Pulse (!)

„Officer Adam Gruler was off-duty and working private security at Pulse. He was the first to engage the gunman.“ (Source)

security guard Gruler INDEP If Gruler (an experiencend police officer) was RESPONSIBLE for private security at the club, at that special weekend for the gay community, then the first question he ought to answer is: HOW COULD THE GUNMAN ENTER THE CLUB WITH AN ASSAULT WEAPON IN THE FIRST PLACE????

The accepted media narrative that he „just heard shots“ when he was outside the club rests solely on his testimony. And why would the shooter go back into the club? Why not try to escape in the dark or simply shoot at the cop?

What if Gruler was posted there on that special night (working clandestinely for the FBI or CIA) to ensure that the shooter could get into the club? What if the story about the „fake ID“ ist just a diversion?  This is pure speculation but it cannot be ruled out …

And how come that 14 (!) cops were unable to stop the shooter? How come that not one shot fired by the cops actually HIT the guy? That not one cop was hurt either (the story with the Kevlar helmet is just entertainment) given the Sig Sauer MCX?

What did they actually do when the shooter „retreated to the bathroom“? Why not just use some tear gas or other chemical to disable him ? How could just one guy „overpower“ or outsmart a SWAT-Team?

 „The decision by law enforcement to hold off on entering the Pulse club — where more than 100 people were shot, 49 of them killed — immediately raised questions among experts in police tactics. They said the lessons learned from other mass shootings show that officers MUST GET INSIDE SWIFTLY — even at great risk — to stop the threat and save lives.“ Source

I do not know what really happened inside that club between midnight and 5 a.m. that night but what I do know is that the official story stinks to high heaven.

Is the US ruled by psychopaths …?   Just look at the disgusting choice of presidential candidates and you know the answer ..

 

P.S. I found this on the VeteransToday website recently … (MK Ultra never went away …)

A „TURKEY SHOOT“ FOR ERDOGAN

We all have to be courageous, despite all of this, and defend the freedom of the press and the freedom to information.”

Can Dündar, May 2016 ( a lone voice)

Dündar sentenced GuardianIf any doubts still existed about the allegation that our „churnalists“ have lost their capacity (or will) to think for themselves, the recent reporting about the conviction of two courageous Turkish journalists is the proof that you no longer need a functioning brain to work for the media.

I am referring here to the Guardian but you might pick any other more or less reputable newspaper or TV-News in Europe (including RT), it does not really matter since they all „report“ the same story anyway.

So what are the facts?

  • Two Turkish journalists were sentenced to several years in prison last week
  • One of them is Can Dündar, editor-in-chief of the Turkish daily Cumhuriyet (5 years and 10 month); the other is Erdem Gül, chief of Cumhurriyet’s Ankara bureau (5 years)
  • The court ruled that their crime was: „procuring and revealing state secrets that could harm the security of the state or its domestic or foreign interests“ (both were acquitted on espionage and terrorism charges)
  • The greatest joke of it all is that wannabe Sultan Erdogan joined the trial with the complaint that (reporting the inconvenient truth about a criminal state) amounts to „an attempt to undermine Turkey’s global standing / international reputation“.

If you take a closer look how the Guardian has presented the story  you might note the following:

The last paragraph is supposed to be evidence for the Guardian’s „balanced“ reporting which works like this:

First you mention the „revelations“ of Cumhurriyet which „PURPORTED to show Turkey’s state intelligence agency ferrying weapons into Syria in 2014“. This phrasing implies of course that there is no proof for these allegations. They might or might not be true.

Then you dutifully „report“ what the accused has to say (in this case of course President Erdogan):

Regarding the video, the president has acknowledged that the lorries, which were stopped by Turkish paramilitary forces and police officers en route to the Syrian border, belonged to the intelligence agency, but he said they were CARRYING AID to Turkmen rebels in Syria. Turkmen fighters are battling against the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, and Isis.“

But this is not quite accurate.

THE CHANGING DENIALS

The fact of the matter is that the official response to the revelations by Cumhurriyet changed several times and this inconsistency is (as every criminal investigator knows) a clear sign that someone is lying.

The Turkish newspaper TODAY’S ZAMAN (English version) reported this on May 31, 2015 (the site has since been shut down – no big surprise):

„Turkish government officials have often provided conflicting accounts on the contents of intercepted Syria-bound trucks.

When the news broke in January 2014 that the Turkish military intercepted three trucks and searched their contents under the order of the lead and district prosecutors in Adana province, the government immediately dismissed the claims that the trucks were carrying arms. Prime Minister Davutoğlu, who was foreign minister at the time of the incident, asserted that the cargo was humanitarian aid destined for the embattled Syrian Turkmens on the other side of the border.

 Then-Prime Minister and now President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on television programs as well as during his public speeches that the trucks were carrying aid to Turkmens. Then-Interior Minister Efkan Ala also said the aid was for Turkmens and a public statement by MİT also claimed the same.

Testimonials by gendarmerie intelligence officers who were involved in the interception confirmed, however, that the shipment’s destination was not an area that included any Turkmen group. The destination on the Syrian side of the border, as disclosed by the drivers, was often a target of reconnaissance by Turkish military personnel who secured the border.

However, the gendarmes said the area was populated by radical groups including al-Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Syrian Turkmens also refuted claims that they had received either arms or humanitarian aid from Turkey at the time. Syrian-Turkmen Assembly Vice Chairman Hussein al-Abdullah said in January 2014 that no such trucks arrived from Turkey.

Earlier this month, Yasin Aktay, the AK Party’s deputy chairman responsible for foreign affairs, admitted that the trucks were in fact transporting arms, but said that the receiver was the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which is fighting against the Syrian government, not ISIL.

On the other hand, İbrahim Kalın, spokesman and adviser to President Erdoğan, claimed Turkey has never sent any weaponry to Syria.“

TELEGRAM-STYLE SUMMARY OF STATEMENTS

  • GOVERNMENT (#1): NO ARMS IN TRUCKSONLY „AID“ – FOR TURKMEN TRIBE
  • GOVERNMENT (#2): YES, ARMS IN TRUCKS BUT FOR TURKMEN ONLY (DAVUTOĞLU )
  • GOVERNMENT (#3): YES, ARMS IN TRUCKS BUT FOR FSA ONLY (AK party chairman)
  • GOVERNMENT (#4): NO, NEVER ANY WEAPONS SENT TO SYRIA (Erdogan spokesman)
  • GENDARMERIE (which searched the trucks): DESTINATION OF CARGO AN AREA WHERE NO TURKMEN ARE FOUNDAREA UNDER CONTROL OF  JIHADIS (IS and Al Nusra)
  • TURKMEN LEADER: NO AID OR ARMS RECEIVED AT THAT TIME („NO SUCH TRUCKS ARRIVED“) FROM TURKEY

So the editors of the Guardian conveniently ignored these conflicting  assertions. It makes life as a journalist so much easier.

Besides, the material Cumhurriyet published on May 29 clearly demonstrates that these lorries DID actually CARRY weapons for war (and lots of them): It showed gendarmerie and police officers opening crates on the back of the trucks on the way to Syria in January 2014. The officials first opened cardboard boxes marked as “fragile” and full of antibiotics. But what did they find hidden under those boxes?

According to the paper, the trucks were carrying six steel containers, with 1,000 artillery shells, 50,000 machine gun rounds, 30,000 heavy machine gun rounds and 1,000 mortar shells. The arms were reportedly delivered to extremist groups fighting against the Syrian government of President Bashar Assad, whom Ankara wants ousted from power.“ (Source: RT)

How did the Erdogan Government react to the „accusation“? (sending weapons to brutal Jihadis in Syria)

 „The Turkish government has vehemently denied claims that it is arming rebels fighting in Syria and accused dozens of prosecutors, soldiers and security officers involved in searching the trucks of attempting to bring it down through such claims.

[Why is the stigma-word „crazy conspiracy theory“ not used for Erdogan here when it is perfectly applicable ?]

Turkey accused of arms smuggling  to Syria

 Earlier this month, Turkey arrested four prosecutors who ordered the search of the vehicles near the Syrian border in January 2014 and they are now in prison pending trial.

 More than 30 security officers involved in the interception also face charges including military espionage and attempting to overthrow the government. The footage published on the opposition Cumhuriyet daily’s website on Friday shows inspectors searching a metallic container watched by security officers, a prosecutor and sniffer dogs.“ (Daily Mail)

Sultan ErdoganThat the megalomaniac Erdogan („a great friend“ of the US according to Joe Biden) would harass journalists who exposed his crimes comes as no surprise.  That the abuse of power of this narcissistic wannabe „Sultan“ goes so far that even prosecutors and police officers will be gagged and threatened with ridiculous charges is even more scandalous  but apparently our press does not care …(they just focus on the journalists).

THERE IS MASSIVE EVIDENCE FOR TURKEYS ROLE IN SUPPORTING TERRORIST GANGS IN SYRIA

Two reports from German media  (2014) show that hundreds of lorries cross the border between Turkey and Syria every day and a truck driver confirmed: „most of the freight here does go to the regions under IS control“ („to Ahmed in Raqqa“). Conclusion of the German journalists:  „It seems Islamic state does not have to worry about its supply lines“ (Deutsche Welle).

The second video clip (How Turkey arms and sends Wahabi Jihadis to Syria) is even more explicit, among its key findings:

Turkish locals confirm that their government provides medical treatment for the Jihadis, allows them to enter Syria freely, and that there are direct weapons deliveries to Syria

  • Turkish opposition in parlament also condemns Erdogan for „bringing thousands of foreign fighters from 40 countries to Syria“. (Erdogan’s response : „Spreading lies will be punished“)
  • „German soldiers are there (with Patriot missiles – in the meantime they have been removed) to protect a state* which is fuelling the conflict in Syria.“ Does the German government know this? (Of course, they do … Sykes-Picot 2.0 has apparently become Sykes-Merkel-Picot)
  • ( * the „analysis“ of Turkey’s intention by the ICC shown in the video is BS as was the absurd notion that the aggressor Turkey needs protection from Syria  )

There are hundreds of other reports corroborating the „allegation“  that Turkey plays a key role in supporting Al Nusra, IS and other artificial Jihadis (see LINKS at the end of this article) so the material Cumhurriyet published fits perfectly into this political context.

BidenEven Vice-President Joe Biden confirmed in his Harvard speech (lamenting the problems with US-allies in the region)  that „his great friends“ in Turkey (aided and abetted by the insufferable Saudis and of course with Washington „leading -to the slaughter- from behind“)

were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war – what did they do?“

They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, THOUSANDS OF TONS OF WEAPONS into anyone who would fight gainst Assad — except THAT THE PEOPLE WHO WERE BEING SUPPLIED, WERE AL-NUSRA, AND AL-QAEDA, and the extremist elements of jihadis who were coming from other parts of the world.“

So there is no doubt at all that the „allegations“ of Cumhurriyet are in fact revelations based on facts.  Are our journalists suffering from political autism or do they just not care? (People are dying because the press covers-up for crimes against humanity in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, etc.)

Even more bizarre is the zigzag line of argumentation used by Erdogan to justify his crackdown on the two journalists who are not under his control:

  • „Slander“: claim that footage and information published by Dündar are „not factual“: „fabricated evidence
  • Illegitimate operation against the MIT“ = espionage and „violating confidentiality“ (!)
  • Clandestine collaboration with (former ally and CIA protegé) Fetullah Gülen to „create the impression“ that Turkey helps terrorist organisations
  • Original charges: Espionage and Treason

„The Turkish authorities denied the allegations, saying that the trucks were carrying aid to Syrian ethnic Turkmen tribespeople and labeled their interception an act of “treason” and “espionage“. (RT)

This is of course practically the same silly „refutation“ the Guardian published as context for the recent verdict (see my comments above). But if the trucks carried only „aid“ why is there a need for secrecy?

And if the evidence is allegedly „fabricated“ (the original claim by Erdogan and the state prosecutor in Istanbul) then how can you justify a verdict of „revealing a state secret“?

The fact that members of the local gendarmerie (who had been involved in the operation and were therefore eyewitnesses) were also charged with „espionage“ and even four district attorneys were deposed (put into custody) to stop any independent investigation in Adana province tells the whole story …(What has happened to them? Does anybody care?) …

Turkey IS flagsIn fact everybody with half a brain (and basic knowledge of geopolitics) has figured out by now that Turkey DOES support “Islamist” terror-gangs (not only) in Syria (Russia has provided additional evidence) but the Guardian editors prefer to look the other way. This shameful behaviour by our journalists is not new  and one could rant for hours about it but my point here is the following:

If you use basic logic you will see that the verdict actually PROVES that the story Cumhurriyet published is TRUE. Why?

By charging them for „revealing state secrets“ they inadvertently admit that the story about transporting weapons  clandestinely to Syria  (under the protection of the MIT, Turkish intelligence and under the guise of „humanitarian relief“ ) must be true.

This is precisely  the „state secret“ the world was not supposed to know.

If the lorries had only transported „aid“ then how could that be a „state secret“ in the first place? The whole thing is completely absurd.

Turkeys Killing Machine synthetic Gladio terror(On the criminal role of the MIT  (a creature of the CIA) and the „Gladio“ context see this article and  Daniele Ganser)

In order to divert attention from this logical conclusion the Erdogan cabal arranged for a „shooting“ outside the court shortly before the verdict was announced.

This way they could be sure that all „news“ would concentrate on the spectacular violent event instead of understanding what the verdict really confirmed: the guilt of the Erdogan government as a major supporter of terrorist gangs in Syria.

So wordings like these are no longer justified

The journalists were prosecuted over a report ALLEGING Turkey had tried to ship arms to Islamists in Syria.“ (CPJ)

The case, which is widely viewed as a test for press freedom in Turkey, relates to the pair’s reports on ALLEGED government arms smuggling to Syria.“ (AP

but  the „churnalists“ use them because they do not have the courage to print the truth while lamenting the loss of „press freedom“ in Turkey.

They do not have the guts to show real solidarity with Cumhuriyet journalists by insisting on the truth (although they do not have to go to jail for it).

It makes you sick.

EXKLUSIVE: Secret Turkish Nerve Center leads aid to Syria rebels

NATO member Turkey harboring Terrorists

 “Most of the fighters who joined us in the beginning of the war came via Turkey, and so did our equipment and supplies.”

ISIS-Commander to Washington Post, August 2014; here is an excerpt from this article:

 REYHANLI, Turkey — Before their blitz into Iraq earned them the title of the Middle East’s most feared insurgency, the jihadists of the Islamic State treated this Turkish town near the Syrian border as their own personal shopping mall.

And eager to aid any and all enemies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Turkey rolled out the red carpet.

In dusty market stalls, among the baklava shops and kebab stands, locals talk of Islamist fighters openly stocking up on uniforms and the latest Samsung smartphones. Wounded jihadists from the Islamic State and the al-Nusra Front — an al-Qaeda offshoot also fighting the Syrian government — were treated at Turkish hospitals. Most important, the Turks winked as Reyhanli and other Turkish towns became way stations for moving foreign fighters and arms across the border.”
