From Al-Jazeera English:
And the audio leaks, if authentic, are very damaging indeed. This recording, purporting to be key members of the Turkish government and military, suggests that they were at least considering a false-flag operation in Syria:
I don’t speak Turkish but I have a Turkish friend who is inclined to believe this is genuine. The blogosphere is blowing this up into an indictment of all of NATO, but even if it’s just a few people in Turkey spitballing ideas the fact that the government reaction was to shut down large chunks of the Internet is worrying.
So - in the interest of justifying putting this in GD - is this a tempest in a teapot or indicative of a more disturing trend in Turkish politics?
