We had to do a double-take at the headline posted at Debka.com today, namely, “Erdogan locks US airmen, nuclear arms in Incirlik“. Keeping in mind that Debka, as with so many news services, may operate largely by the good graces of Israeli intelligence, it is nevertheless remarkable that even Debka feels a bit disillusioned at the apparent media blackout of this story. (See PDF version here if link is unavailable.) Quote:

Some 1,500 US airmen and their families have been locked in the southern Turkish air base of Incirlik together with a stock of tactical nuclear bombs since President Reccep Erdogan crushed an attempted coup on Saturday, July 16. In the four days up until Wednesday, July 20, therefore, no air strikes against ISIS in Syria and Iraq have been staged that Turkish base.

This extraordinary situation, reported here by DEBKAfile’s military sources, whereby a large group of American military personnel are held virtual captive by an allied government, was almost certainly raised in the phone call that took place Tuesday between President Barack Obama and Erdogan.  But the most outlandish aspect of this affair is that no American official has raised it in public – nor even by the administrations most vocal critics at the Republican convention which nominated Donald Trump as presidential candidate.

The situation only rated a brief mention in some Russian publications under the heading: “Turkish investigators enter & search Incirlik air base where US nukes are housed.”

A few items are noteworthy here:

1. Debka claims that NO air strikes against ISIS have been sent from Incirlik. However, mainstream media has been assuring us all week that airstrikes were being carried out in spite of the power cut-off to the base.

2. Has Donald Trump deliberately missed a choice morsel by avoiding this story? Did he actually choose to ignore the link between the donations made by Fethullah Gulen to the Clinton Foundation? And even the Russian media are treating the story very lightly? Hmmm, if so, then this story is much more classified than we had thought.

3. What is going on behind the scenes that is so bad that it has effectively hamstrung the supposed “most powerful leader of the world,” President Obama, from being able to take action against this obviously hostile action from a NATO-allied country?

Once again, the world is being treated to strong hints from the Madman of Turkey that there actually is a live, functioning super-state that has more power than the United States.


As we mentioned in our previous blog, ministers of the Turkish government have been screaming for the head of Muslim cleric and CIA favorite, Fethullah Gulen. Erdogan claims that Gulen is a ringleader of a “parallel state.” Our ears were pricked, again, at the statement copied below uttered by the Prime Minister, to the effect that a “state within a state” is being controlled by the clerical Pennsylvania resident. See: “As Erdogan’s Historic Purge Claims 50,000, Turkey Set To Unveil “Emergency Measures”

Meanwhile, Erdogan continues to focus the public’s attention on his hand-picked scapegoat for the attempted, if perhaps staged, coup. “This parallel terrorist organization will no longer be an effective pawn for any country,” Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said, referring to what the government has long alleged is a state within a state controlled by followers of Fethullah Gulen. “We will dig them up by their roots,” he told parliament.

We could not help but recall that this same phrase has been used to describe a powerful network of would-be world rulers whose stretch extends over many centuries. The History Channel documentary “The Templar Code” used the same phrase to describe that powerful cabal 700 years ago, and repeated here in a comparable Wikipedia article: (link here)

This probably made Philip particularly uneasy, since just a few years earlier he had inherited land in the region of Champagne, France, which was the Templars’ headquarters. The Templars were already a “state within a state”, were institutionally wealthy, paid no taxes, and had a large standing army which by papal decree could move freely through all European borders. However, this army no longer had a presence in the Holy Land, leaving it with no battlefield.

Readers of the continuous series of books from Joseph P. Farrell have run across this idea over and over again with regards to the Nazi International, those vermin who went underground after WWII while overseeing the rise of the ultimate Fascist network of banks and corporations that today seem to “be anxious to bring the game home.” The connection between the CIA and the modern reincarnation of the old Nazi fraternity has been traced by many researchers through the alliance between Reinhard Gehlen and Allen Dulles.

However, our big “whoa!” moment of the day came when Erdogan invoked the memory of 9/11. Many eyebrows have been raised over the possibility that Erdogan staged his own coup to give him legitimate excuse to arrest 60,000 Turkish citizens (and counting). When asked for his response to that claim, Erdogan replied: “It’s comparable to the claim that 9/11 was orchestrated by the US.”

We must stop and ponder this statement. Is Erdogan dropping a long-awaited 9/11 Truth Bomb here? Is he saying that the factions within the U.S. government were complicit in the horrific loss of life and property that day just as he (or somebody pulling Erdogan’s strings) is equally capable of pulling off his own coup?

And if that is true, then we must ask by whom did Erdogan come by this information. You don’t suppose he was directed to drop these cookie crumbs by the man to whom he came crawling the day after Brexit, to offer his apology for the shootdown of the Russian pilots last November — an act he now claims was perpetrated by this same CIA favorite Muslim cleric in Pennsylvania?

We have noticed the characteristic reticence of Vladimir Putin to make any truly noteworthy statements about the Turkey Coup events during the past week. Undoubtedly, the Master Chess Player has locked up the game in checkmate. So, we conclude this blog with the same two words I customarily offer in response to anybody who asks what exactly should they be watching for in The News?

Watch Putin.
