While accusations and recriminations continue to reverberate in the aftermath of the failed coup attempt in Turkey and fingers are pointing at possible/probable US/CIA involvement (there is a long history of the Anglo-American elite fomenting regime change), we should not lose sight of the repressive, duplicitous nature of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's rule. One cannot exclude the possibility that the coup was encouraged/facilitated to flush out opposition to Ergodan's regime; the subsequent detentions give credence to this interpretation of events. Furthermore, in multilevel geopolitical chess, this version of events doesn't exclude the possibility of US/Israeli involvement.
Prior to the coup attempt, a number of journalists have died in suspicious circumstances in Turkey with little outrage or reporting in Western media, even when they were British or American citizens.
Ex-BBC journalist Jacky Sutton found hanged in airport ‘feared ISIS would kill her’
"Unless I see evidence beyond reasonable doubt that #JackySutton committed suicide, I am convinced that she has been killed. RIP"
“I’m not into conspiracies, but if the Turks say a security camera at Istanbul-Ataturk was malfunctioning then Jacky Sutton was murdered,”
Who killed Jacky Sutton? Colleagues of ex-BBC journalist head to Istanbul for answers to inexplicable death by Tom Porter
A colleague of former BBC journalist Jacky Sutton, who was found hanged in a toilet cubicle in Istanbul airport, said claims she committed suicide "go against everything we understood about Jacky".
The 50-year-old acting Iraq director for the London-based Institute for War and Peace Reporting was found dead in Istanbul's Ataturk Airport. The Foreign Office confirmed the death of a British national in Istanbul on 18 October and said it was "providing consular assistance to the family at this time".
A year before Jackie Sutton's mysterious death, Serena Shim died in Syria and Turkish intelligence services were implicated.
The Killing of Serena Shim & the ‘Suicide’ of Former BBC Journalist Jackie Sutton… by The Burning Blogger of Bedlam
Exactly a year ago – on October 19th, 2014 – the journalist Serena Shim was killed after reporting from Kobani in Syria as a war correspondent. Her death was almost certainly the work of the Turkish intelligence community.Meanwhile the killing of journalists and activists, either as tragic consequences of reporting from danger zones or by deliberate, targeted assassination, is an ongoing crime all over the world. The highly suspicious death of Jacky Sutton in a Turkish airport, just announced this evening, demonstrates that Serena Shim wasn’t the first and won’t be the last journalist to lose their life in the field, and that she is part of a long line of journalists who’ve been killed for various reasons over the years, including the likes of Max [Michael] Hastings, Hunter S. Thompson, Garry Webb, Daniel Pearl, Maya Nasser and many others. According to the International Press Institute, 64 journalists have been killed so far in 2015.
Turkey is by no means the only country which eliminates those who may expose the crimes of the ruling classes; the body count across the US and UK probably runs into hundreds or even thousands. Some of the more prominent in the UK are Diana Spencer, Robin Cook, David Kelly and Jill Dando. In the US, the Clintons' likely victims run into dozens, the latest being Seth Rich.
DNC Data Director Seth Rich was likely assassinated by the Clintons
The Clintons have known the Kleebs since at least 2008. Scott Kleeb started a business the Clinton Global Initiative was found fraudulently supporting. Seth Rich was deeply entrenched with the Kleebs from their Nebraska Democratic work. Seth Rich was hired onto a position in the DNC out of a job from a data consulting firm which had previously worked with President Clinton, which was opened up because the Clintons pushed for the Voter Expansion project so that 2008 didn't happen to Hillary in 2016. Seth Rich has at least 2 connections to the Clintons. Jane Kleeb is a voracious environmentalist/Sanders supporter who might've prompted Seth Rich to leak the emails, especially after their business was one month earlier revealed for fraudulency. The best way to cover their tracks would be to make this seem like another right-wing conspiracy. His murder was deemed a robbery, but nothing was missing from his person.
There are few brave enough to go on record to expose the Clintons' criminality - statistically, the odds of survival are poor. The best help we can give is to make sure these stories aren't swept under the carpet along with all the other criminality of the ruling classes.
