Military Coup in Turkey: Former CIA Officials Give Turkish Coup Plotters Advice On CNN

(Since I mentioned this interaction on CNN the other day when writing about the failed coup in Turkey, I thought I would add this little link to a write-up about it.)

from the Huffington Post

Oh, for the good old days ― when the CIA regularly assisted military coups d’états in foreign democracies.

Several former spooks appearing on CNN Friday night to discuss the attempted military coup in Turkey had more than a few pointers for the seemingly amateurish military officers leading the takeover efforts. And at least one contributor seemed more disappointed in their performance than relieved that the coup has thus far failed to topple a democratically elected government.

Leading the pack was Robert Baer, a veteran former CIA officer and author ― and, apparently, a former coup participant.

Baer told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that the Turkish coup was “not professionally done.”

“I have been involved in coups before,” he said. “They should have taken CNN Turk and closed it down the first minutes, the radio station, social media, the internet. Even if they didn’t arrest [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan, they should have taken care of all of that right at the beginning.”

Baer also revealed that he had discussed the possibility of a coup with Turkish military officers in the past few months.

Military Coup in Turkey: Post Mortem

by Scott Creighton

Last night on CNN, former CIA spook Robert Baer was despondent, irreconcilably inconsolable. He was talking to a CNN “journalist” about the coup attempt in Turkey which at that point was looking like it was quickly becoming a failed coup attempt.

Baer laid out a list of what he said were mistakes by the coup leaders and stressed that he himself had taken part in many CIA-backed coups over the course of his career so he was speaking from experience. “Baer would have done it better” was the point of the discussion as he mourned the missed opportunity for undemocratic regime change by violence in Turkey.

The normalization of the CIA’s policy of brutality was chilling. But Baer does have a point. He is experienced.

On MSNBC Rachel Maddow, the fake-left sycophantic Clinton cheerleader, it took them less than 5 minutes after Erdogan regained control of the country for them to start demonizing him again. Millions of Turks were out on the streets, had risked their lives and their freedom to thwart the unconstitutional coup and the first thing Maddow and company could do was start talking about their elected leader being a “power-mad dictator” locking up journalists and arresting opposition leaders.

Maddow’s guest, I forget which “foreign policy expert” it was, said looking at the airport where a hundred thousand citizens greeted Erdogan’s plane, that he was some kind of “populist… like Huey Long”

He spit the name out like he expected it to be censored like the “F” bomb or the “N” word. Maddow shuddered.

Oh God. Imagine a leftist who stands up for his constituency. The madness!

This morning CNN is covering Trump’s VP pick. Fox News is covering the Republican convention. And MSNBC is showing a rerun of an older Rachel Maddow show.

The coup attempt failed and the Mockingbird press wants us to simply “move along”

So it’s up to me to give you guys a wrap-up of last night’s events.

And then, there were none: Now there were “no snipers” involved in the Dallas Sniper Attack

by Scott Creighton

“Tonight it appears that two snipers shot ten police officers from elevated positions during the protest/rally,” Dallas Police Chief Brown

Over at AlterNet they are condemning “the media” for falsely suggesting there were multiple snipers firing from elevated positions in Dallas on Thursday night. Their claim is that Micah X. Johnson, an Army CARPENTER, took out 5 Dallas police officers and wounded 7 more in ground level tactical combat. A CARPENTER did that. Well, I guess if a carpenter could walk on water and resurrect himself from the dead, anything is possible.

Dallas Sniper Attack: Story Morphing, Multiple Snipers Becoming One Dead “Lone Gunman” Carpenter (patsy?) Micah Johnson

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: (H/T Kevin) Don’t know if you guys have seen this video of a street level gun battle. It’s worth looking at.

UPDATE: Yep. That’s it. The three others arrested are dropped down the memory hole like 3 hobos on a hot November Dallas day:

“But they’re still trying to answer key questions. Chief among them: Are any other suspects on the loose?

Federal law enforcement officials say they believe Johnson was the only shooter in the ambush that began Thursday night, according to law enforcement officials briefed by the Dallas police” CNN

Gone like hobos in Dallas, like Dancing Israelis in New York, like the three tall white guys in San Bernadino, like the extra shooters in Orlando. Gone daddy gone

Holy shit. I made a joke this morning about the cops turning lose the three suspects they arrested last night in connection with the multiple sniper event down in Dallas. Ain’t so funny now, is it?

An Army veteran “upset about Black Lives Matter” and “recent police shootings” who opened fire Thursday night in Dallas in an attack on police officers has been identified as Micah Xavier Johnson, the Los Angeles Times and CBS News report. Heavy

Micah X. Johnson has been identified as the individual the Dallas PD was in a standoff with in that parking garage all night. Reports were that he took his own life late last night but the “official” word now is that they used a robot with a bomb attached to it to blow him up early this morning.

The suspect did not shoot himself, despite reports, Brown said. Heavy

Mr Brown said the suspect had been killed when police used explosives placed by a robot to end a tense stand-off in a building where he was holed up. Before that he had spoken to a negotiator. BBC

Johnson was an Army reservist who, according to Dallas police, wanted to kill white people in uniforms because of the two recent staged shooting events in La. and Minnesota. His Facebook page is decked out like it was made by a collection of “let’s start the color revolution” CIA interns. Not a single cliched race-baiting reference is missing. The disinfo trolls are probably running around all over the internet right now like Cartman from South Park yelling “RACE WAR! RACE WAR!!!!

“The suspect said he was upset with white people and wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” Brown said. Heavy

Dallas Sniper Attack: Does Anyone Remember June 12, 2015?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Please also see Dallas Texas – Home of the Never Ending Psyops written June 13th, 2015. Apparently there is an entire cottage industry in Dallas centered on destabilization events.

With all the reporting on what happened last night in Dallas, I have yet to read or hear anyone make a comparison to what happened in Dallas on June 12th of 2015.

Here’s what we know about last night (list from CNN):

  • A total of 10 police officers were shot by snipers during the protests, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said. An 11th officer was shot during an exchange of gunfire with a suspect, authorities said.
  • Police Chief David Brown said it’s unclear how many suspects were involved, but three people are in custody.
  • Dallas police negotiated and exchanged gunfire with a suspect for hours at a parking garage in downtown. That suspect is dead, a law enforcement official told CNN. The official did not say how the suspect died.
  • “The suspect told our negotiators that the end is coming,” Brown said. The suspect at the garage also told negotiators more officers are going to get hurt, and that bombs are planted all over downtown Dallas.
  • “This was an attack planned long before — waiting for an opportunity to go,” Moore said. “I think there was so much logistically, ammunition-wise. They may not have planned the location, they may not have planned the vantage point. But they had prepared for an attack before last night’s shooting is my guess.”
  • Two of the shooters were snipers, who fired “ambush-style” from an “elevated position,” Brown said.

Last night I was watching MSNBC’s live coverage of this event and they had someone named Van Zant on as some kind of “expert” and he said something that struck me: he said that it reminds him off all those “terrorist” sniper attacks at protests in Latin America over the past couple of decades and that he was sad too see it now happening here on U.S. streets.

What he failed to mention was the fact that 99.9% of those sniper attacks were carried out by various regime change mercenaries working for the CIA on their irregular warfare campaigns.

Of course, you don’t have to go back even that far in history to see this kind of tactic being employed. If you recall, at the height of the regime change op in Ukraine, there was a similar sniper attack whose perpetrators have never been fully identified by the new regime that took over in it’s aftermath.

“I can say only one thing: the key factor in this uprising, that spilled blood in Kiev and that turned the country upside down and shocked it, was a third force,” Avakov was quoted as saying by Interfax. “And this force was not Ukrainian.”

Forensic evidence, in particular the similarity of the bullet wounds, led him and others to conclude that snipers were targeting both sides of the standoff at Maidan — and that the shootings were intended to generate a wave of revulsion so strong that it would topple Yanukovych and also justify a Russian invasion. AP

Now that said, let’s take a look back at the events of June 12, 2015.

Dark Alliances Redux: The Globalization of the Narcotics Trade a.k.a. the “War on Drugs”

by Scott Creighton

In memory of Gary Webb. The courage he possessed is far too rare in this country.

At the North American Leaders’ Summit which just took place last week President Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto met in Ottawa to discuss the future of economic prosperity (for a few) in this North American Union of ours. It’s being called the Three Amigos summit.

In the press conference, President Obama addressed what he called “serious concerns” being held by a number of citizens across the world about the impact of globalization and how unfair it is to so many people. He said folks have “legitimate” grievances because, in the past, free trade agreements, like the one they were there to discuss, NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), haven’t always worked out so well for the workers, small business people and the quickly dwindling middle class in Mexico, Canada and the U.S.

Of course, his response to how to “fix” it involved signing bigger and better “free trade” agreements, that way they can dictate conditions on more countries across the world. He’s speaking of the TPP and TTIP of course.

Fix the problems created by unfair “free trade” agreements by signing bigger and more oppressive “free trade” agreements. That’s the solution from our glorious leader. Not “end NAFTA” and negotiate new unilateral “fair trade” agreements that put U.S. workers and businesses first. No, fix NAFTA by signing the TPP and the TTIP. Bigger, more oppressive NAFTA.

Around the same time, a couple barely noticed articles popped up over at Telesur which I thought needed a little more attention.

Ataturk Airport Bombing ala Gladio 2.0, Steals Headlines from Benghazi/CIA Commission Report

by Scott Creighton

You can always count on “ISIS™” to strike at the most opportune moment for Western interests. This is a pattern that has been well established in recent “ISIS™” history.

When we started loosing control of our puppet regime in war-torn Libya and the people started rising up to kick our corrupt cronies to the curb, “ISIS™” suddenly showed up and thus we had all the justification we needed to start bombing again.

It works something like this:

https://willyloman.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/big-picture.jpg?w=252&h=216

When globalist interests wanted Japan to tear-up their peace constitution making way for Obama’s “pivot to Asia”, “ISIS™” decided to make a ridiculous beheading video featuring Hapless Haruna which was so badly Photoshoped, not only did Fox News have to admit it was a fake, but the Japanese people started up a bad Photoshop contest making fun of the “news’ story.

On Dec. 25th, 2014, I entered the contest with this effort. Notice how it pulls “ISIS™” into the all important War on Christmas? Subtle, huh?

santa

I think I should have won but since I’m not Japanese and since I made it with Autocad and not Photoshop, I was disqualified. Racist bastards.

Truth is, there is a VERY long history of “ISIS™” popping up just where they are needed to justify whatever the CIA or the MIC or NATO or Obama wants at the moment. Unless you are brain-dead or a total shill (or coward), you cannot deny it.
