Witness testimony obtained by Reuters has once again shown that the Turkish government was dishonest about their involvement in the rise of Islamist rebels in northern Syria.
The testimony of officials revealed that Turkey’s MIT state spy agency repeatedly accompanied cargoes of weaponry across the border into Islamist rebel-controlled territory in January of 2014, and threatened border police who objected.
The weapons shipments were distributed among various rebel factions, and are believed to have played a significant role in ISIS gains in that area of Syria, which they control to this day.
Prosecutors dubbed the arms smuggling process a “total massacre of the law,” though President Erdogan insisted that the spy agency’s trucks were full of humanitarian aid, and other officials insisted anyone who said otherwise was just trying to embarrass the government.

How about slapping these jerks with some sanctions. Or declare them material supporters of terrorism. But let me guess, IS is the kind of terrorist organization the US likes.
Coincidentally, Turkey is NATO. You know, that very same tripwire hazard that's forever needed an excuse just to exist? Yup, one of it's members is implicated in aiding and abetting the new marquee coven to great success over Israel's long term opponents.
But don't expect the US to slap them down…the US is afraid Turkey might throw NATO out of the country – making the US's warring ways more difficult. The US has already proven they're not above war crimes and other nasty, uncivilized stuff so arming and allying with those who support terrorism is well within their moral deficiencies.
Why would Uncle Sam slap them down for implementing US policy? If one assumes the policy is "Controlled Chaos" then the puzzle fits together quite well.
Uncle Sam assumes he can keep ISIS on a short leash, i.e., out of Baghdad. But he believes he can control a rabid dog. That remains to be seen.
It would be the morally logical thing to do…if the US were a morally logical country.

Hit that nail smack on the head will ya?
Turkey is part of NATO. Do you seriously believe that NATO is not in Cahoots with all of this? If they weren't they would come down on Turkey like a ton of bricks. Oh, pleezeee this is such a bull—t story just like all the other Bulls—t stories….so obvious, really…
I do tend to presume NATO is. …must of been the 'coincidentally' bit?
