A crowd has been protesting near the Incirlik military base in Adana, Turkey. The facility houses US and NATO forces. The demonstrators are calling for the closure of the base, where arrests and searches were made in connection with the failed coup.
Researchers at one of the nation’s top scientific academies have confirmed this morning that truth is still true, no matter where the truth comes from. In particular, they verified that even if a Russian hacker helps expose it, a fact remains truth as long as it is true.
“There has been a big story in the news lately,” Dr. William Williamson told reporters outside the National Institute of Scientific Sciencery early Monday morning, “and a central theme of that big story is that it came from leaked information that may have been obtained by Russian hackers.”
Williamson said that the news story sparked “intense debate” within NISS and so the scientists at the institute began what they assumed would be a long and laborious set of experiments. They were determined to figure out if something that is factual becomes less-truthful or even fictional, depending on where in the world the information came from. Those experiments, Dr. Williamson said, didn’t take nearly as long as they they had initially thought.
With the scandals plaguing the Democratic National Convention - set to start in just over an hour - get stronger, so does the narrative that it was all Russia's fault the Democratic party was hacked.
As a result, as reported earlier today, the objective FBI said it is now investigating how thousands of DNC emails were hacked, a breach that Hillary Clinton's campaign maintains was committed by Russia to benefit Donald Trump. Indeed, as noted yesterday, Clinton's campaign, citing "experts", pointed to a massive hacking of DNC computers in June that cybersecurity firms linked to the Russian government.
Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta added fuel to the debate Monday, saying there was "a kind of bromance going on" between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump. The Clinton campaign says Russia favors Trump's views, especially on NATO.
Trump on Monday dismissed as a "joke" claims by Hillary Clinton's campaign that Russia is trying to help Trump by leaking thousands of emails from the Democratic National Committee.
"The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC emails, which should have never been written (stupid), because Putin likes me," Trump wrote as part of a series of Tweets. "Hillary was involved in the email scandal because she is the only one with judgement (sic) so bad that such a thing could have happened."
The scandal continue into the afternoon when a Motherboard article noted that ""metadata show that the Russian operators apparently edited some documents, and in some cases created new documents""
Two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva will appeal the International Association of Athletics Federations’ (IAAF) decision to uphold a ban on Russian track and field athletes competing at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the European Court of Human Rights.
Amidst an astonishing, relentless, wide-ranging purge that shows no signs of abating, with 60,000 – and counting – civil servants, academics, judges, prosecutors, policemen, soldiers jailed, fired, suspended or stripped of professional accreditation, it’s relatively established by now the Turkish government was very much informed a military coup was imminent on July 15. The information may have come from Russian intelligence, although neither Moscow nor Ankara will reveal any details. So, once and for all, this was no false flag.
A top, secular Middle Eastern intel analyst with an Istanbul front seat view to the coup clarified the internal political context even before the – widely expected – proclamation of a state of emergency (if France can do it, why not Turkey?):
«They knew five to six hours beforehand that a coup was in the works and let it go ahead, knowing, as they must have, that it would fail… This affair has propelled Erdogan to semi-divine status among his supporters. The way is clear for him to get what he wants, which will be a powerful presidency and removal of the secularism principle in the constitution. This would set the stage for the introduction of aspects of Sharia law. He tried this in the early years of the AKP government with the introduction of Zina, a strictly Islamic provision, which would have criminalized adultery and could have opened the door to the criminalization of other islamically illicit sexual relations as Zina is about this in general and not just adultery. But when the EU objected he backed off».
Donald Trump, in a New York Times interview published Thursday, outlined a sharp break in US foreign policy tradition, suggesting the US wouldn't defend NATO allies like the Baltic states against Russian aggression if they haven't "fulfilled their obligation to us."
Iraq war criminals deserve to be prosecuted. Britain’s Chilcot report is only the most recent example of a worthy cause needing to be addressed. But in 1979, long before false intelligence was used to justify the Iraq war, a heinous war crime was committed against Afghanistan by President’s Carter’s National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski.
By Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould
It’s not just Brzezinski who is culpable. It was the Washington bureaucracy that enabled Brzezinski to activate his Machiavellian plot of intentionally drawing the Soviets into his “Afghan Trap.”
How the Washington bureaucracy enabled Brzezinski's scheme and why it's still important today
PARIS — Three French soldiers were killed in Libya "while on a mission," the French Defense Ministry announced Wednesday in the first official confirmation that French special forces have been active in Libya in apparent operations against the Islamic State.
French officials gave few details on the deaths.
But the Associated Press, quoting Libyan officials, reported that the French soldiers were killed Sunday in an attack on their helicopter. An Islamist militia known as the "Defending Benghazi Brigade" claimed responsibility for the downing.
Islamic State fighters are now estimated to number between 2,000 and 5,000 across Libya, which has been gripped by unrest and political upheavals since a Western-aided uprising in 2011 brought down longtime ruler Moammar Gaddafi, who was captured and killed by rebels.
The US says it may reconsider its affiliation and support for the Syrian opposition if reports of anti-Assad rebels beheading a Palestinian boy are confirmed. The State Department has vowed “consequences” if the gruesome videos of the death are true.
Terrorists shelled parts of the Syrian city of Aleppo with rockets, killing at least five and injuring another nine people on Saturday. Meanwhile, a massive explosion was seen at a military plant outside Aleppo, with blasts heard in a 100km radius from the site.
Ohio’s Supreme Court has ruled that it is unconstitutional to hold police officers’ sexual conduct with minors to higher standards that those applied to the general population based on their profession alone.
The shooting of Charles Kinsey by a North Miami police officer was shocking, particularly because Kinsey was not only unarmed and lying on the ground, but caring for a man with autism when he was shot. Now that Kinsey is recovering, he is ready to talk.
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has launched an inquiry following a video broadcast on national TV which showed children being teargassed and strapped to chairs at a detention center that has been likened to Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay.
Secretary-General of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Matthieu Reeb has announced that the CAS has declined the appeal by Russian athletes against an IAAF ban from the Rio Olympics competition.
The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) lost its appeal against a blanket Olympic ban on its track and field athletes.
"CAS rejects the claims/appeal of the Russian Olympic Committee and 68 Russian athletes," CAS said in a statement.
The decision means that long-jumper Darya Klishina, who trains outside Russia, will be the only Russian track and field athlete cleared to compete in Rio
The Kremlin "deeply regrets" CAS upholding the ban on Russian athletes, said presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
"We can only express our deep regrets. The news is not too good, and we certainly will have to analyze the situation, taking in account the [CAS] decision, that's why I would avoid any further comments on that matter," the Kremlin spokesman said.
Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko also offered his thoughts following the announcement.
"I will be brief, an official announcement will follow later. I regret CAS's decision. Unfortunately, by introduction of collective responsibility, it is the creation of a precedent. But we didn't expect a different result. When the IOC vice-president says that Russian athletes have nothing to do at the Olympics - it's certainly a signal,” said Mutko.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC), however, can make its own decision regarding the participation of Russian track and field athletes at the Rio Games as the CAS does not have the power to implement the ban itself.
Turkey has taken action to block access to the WikiLeaks website after a cache of around 300,000 government emails was released following last weekend’s attempted coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Reuters reports.
God apparently uses Face Time. It was via that iconic iPhone footage from an undisclosed location shown live on CNN Turk by a bewildered female anchor that Erdogan managed to call his legion of followers to hit the streets, unleash People Power and defeat the military faction that had taken over state TV and proclaimed to be in charge.
So God does work in mysterious mobile ways. Erdogan’s call was heeded even by young Turks who had fiercely protested against him in Gezi Park; were tear-gassed or water-cannoned by his police; think the AKP governing party is disgusting; but would support them against a “fascist military coup.” Not to mention that virtually every mosque across Turkey relayed Erdogan’s call.
Turkish loyalists report arresting 1,563 soldiers and officers implicated in an overnight coup attempt; 29 colonels and five generals have been sacked. At least 90 people have been killed and 1,154 injured in military action in Istanbul and Ankara. Trends Coup attempt in Turkey
