So Who is William Jacob Raak?

As one of the nations that prompted the Truman Doctrine, Turkey is one of the first countries to participate in Operation Gladio and, some say, the only country where it has not been purged.[45]

William Jacob Raak being whisked out of Turkey

A reader (David H.) gave me a little head’s up on a part of a story involving the New Year’s Eve Istanbul shooting at the Reina nightclub. It involved an American “victim” of the shooting, William Jacob Raak, and his less than convincing interviews.

Raak is a military contractor of sorts and his LinkedIn follow page is a veritable “who’s who” of big league Pentagon contractors. He is listed as the president of something called TECH Manufacturing Corp which is a sheet metal fabrication shop in Sharon Hill, Penn. On their Manta page Erick Raak is listed as the “owner”. Probably William’s father. They also have this statement: “Established in 1952 TECH Manufacturing, Corp. is a leading manufacturer of sheet metal and machined items for the aerospace and medical industries. Additionally, TECH Manufacturing, Corp. assists in the manufacturing of rotorcraft, electronic and defense systems, missiles, UAV’s and a diverse array of small medical components and devices.” The business website, www.techmanufacturingcorp.com, seems to be a dead link. The Manta page is maintained by Jake Raak. Jacob.

Jake Raak says he was shot in the leg by one of the assailants. The bullet supposedly hit his cell phone and then traveled down his hip to his knee. Here he is the night he was shot. This is when he said there were multiple shooters but he only saw the one. In the videos below you can see that interview as well as one he gave as he was being whisked out of the country by some handlers. Both videos are highly suspect in that his behavior is quite odd.

Here is Jake Raak being whisked out of the country with an odd look on his face.

Here he is smiling during his interview as he’s being whisked out of the country. He’s talking about the 7 friends of his who were also shot, according to Raak. And he can’t seem to stop smiling.

Interestingly, during the interview he says he would return to Turkey someday “when it’s not so dangerous”.

The terror attack at the popular nightclub was clearly an attempt to hurt Turkey’s tourism industry. Most of the victims were tourists. So Raak’s statement seems custom made to suit that end.

Here is a photo you aren’t going to see that much of in regards to this story. It’s Jake Raak in the back of that ambulance. He’s just said he was shot in the leg and his 7 friends were also shot. He’s been addressed by first responders and placed on a gurney for transport to the hospital.

Jake Raak has a wound in his leg, near his femoral artery, from an AK-47 and has already been aided by first responders and loaded into an ambulance for transport… and he is wearing what appears to be a New Year’s Eve scrunchie on his leg and NOTHING ELSE has been done to him. A scrunchie. Still on his leg.

They haven’t cut his pant’s leg to see if he is bleeding internally. They haven’t done any sort of field dressing on his wound. Nope. None of that. They simply put him on a gurney, along with his scrunchie, and wheeled him to the ambulance where everyone seem content to work on other things like getting out of there, instead of working on the guy with an AK-47 gunshot wound to his femur.

Why did they grab this guy right off the bat who’s only apparent injury is his scrunchie while dozens of others lay bleeding out on the nightclub floor?

Are these the worst first responders in Turkey or is this just his get away ride?

According to reports, the assailants got away by dropping their weapons, changing clothes and blending in with the victims either by fleeing the nightclub on their own… or laying down and pretending to be victims.

I’ve put together a couple videos done by others addressing the Raak situation. You can find them below the break.

(Destabilization subcontractors? Who does that sound like?)

from Hurriyet Daily

Attacks perpetrated by terrorist organizations in Turkey are not independent from incidents happening in the region, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said after a gun attack at a nightclub in Istanbul on Jan. 1.

In a written statement, Erdoğan vowed that Turkey was “determined to do whatever is necessary in the region to maintain the security and peace of Turkish citizens.”

“We are aware that these attacks carried out by different terrorist organizations targeting our citizens are not independent from incidents happening in our region. We are determined to destroy the attacks and threats against our country from its root,” he said.

Those who are targeting Turkey’s peace and their subcontractors are aiming to destabilize our country, demoralize our people and create chaos,” he added.
