Turkish officials conspired to ‘stage’ Syria attack

Turkish PM Erdogan addresses the media in Ankara

A recording of Turkey’s top security officials discussing a staged event to justify possible military action in Syria, has been released.

“I’ll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey.” says and individual identified in the video as being Hakan Fidan, the head of Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT).

The leaked audiotapes reveal Turkey’s highest ministers staging an anti-Assad military intervention in Syria and have already caused YouTube to be shut down in the country.

Erdogan’s foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu called the posting a “declaration of war,” an apparent reference to an escalating power struggle between Erdogan and his rivals.

The anonymous posting was an audio file with photographs of the officials involved. The meeting was apparently attended by Turkey’s intelligence chief, its foreign minister and the deputy head of the armed forces.

Speaking to reporters in Kutahya, Davutoglu confirmed the meeting took place and said, “A cyber attack has been carried out against the Turkish Republic, our state and our valued nation. This is a clear declaration of war against the Turkish state and our nation.”

At a rally in the south-eastern city of Diyarbakir on Thursday, Mr Erdogan also appeared to confirm the latest audio leak was genuine.

“They even leaked a national security meeting,” he said. “This is villainous, this is dishonesty… Who are you serving by doing audio surveillance of such an important meeting?”

A source in Erdogan’s office said that Youtube was blocked as a precaution after the voice recordings created a “national security issue” and said it may lift the ban if YouTube agrees to remove the content.

    This is scary stuff. The whole world seems to be at it, planting false flags to trick their people into wars. I think we all need to wake up and take a look at what’s really going on!

    Let’s face it, they’re probably far from being the only ones up to this kind of thing. Disgusting to see it laid out though.
