Turkish daily newspaper Cumhuriyet has released a series of still images and video showing Turkish state intelligence agents participating in smuggling of arms across the border to Syrian Islamist rebels.
The video shows security officials unloading a box of antibiotics, revealing large amounts of mortar shells underneath. This is reportedly the same January 2014 incident reported recently as part of testimony in legal proceedings.
Exactly where the arms went once they crossed the border is unclear, but they were believed to have been distributed broadly among Islamist factions, particularly ISIS which controls a large portion of the Turkish border.
Turkey has repeatedly denied the charges, and followed up today’s publication by announcing the newspaper that broke the story is facing charges of “terrorism” for making the report. Prosecutors who were pushing a case related to the weapons smuggling have similarly been detained, and Turkey seems determined to cover this up at all costs.

The catchall use of the word "terrorism" by governments to cover a whole range of actions they disapprove of has been proven out for what it is, as was predicted when Bushco started throwing the term around very loosely at all sorts of things.
And some people thought Snowden was a coward for running from the USG…
Turkey has arrested its own prosecutors? That's a pretty serious attempt to bury this story. I can't imagine it will be effective. As for arresting journalists, well, that's just another day at the office for this "democratic" vassal of Uncle Sam.
It's inevitable that the truth about who created ISIS will come out, especially with the release of the DIA document that describes in detail how Uncle Sam and friends created ISIS. Unfortunately it will make little difference to the policy or the policymakers. Revealing King W's lies and crimes didn't stop his policies, and he's still not in prison.
ISIS can't swing a dead cat without crossing the border of a U.S. ally. How profoundly ignorant must Americans be to believe that the entire ISIS fiasco is not a U.S. Intelligence Agency construct? All one must do to understand the logistical reality is to look at a map. ISIS can be supplied from Turkey, Jordan or Saudi Arabia. Some would argue that Iraq lies between Saudi and ISIS territory, but that is naive. Iraq no longer exists as a sovereign nation. The recent DIA document revelation is icing on the cake. Unless one chooses to believe that the Caliphate is in possession of Aladdin's magic lamp, or that Dumbo the Flying Elephant delivers their critical needs, it is obvious that ISIS exists at the pleasure of U.S. vassals.

USA have created ISIS in order to get rid of Assad without bombing Syria.They will cotinue to do it without thinking about the consequeces for the future.
The only positive thing is that when it will happen Gergia will ask Russia to help to defend them.
