I have made mention of the fact that Turkey will NOT allow media into the so called refugee camps in Turkey.
Oh, well my bad, let me correct that. They let a limited number enter with the "Angel"....Angel of destruction that is. Angelina, CFR, Jolie.
It is quite clear Turkey is involved in destabilizing Syria. If you have not been following along with the bouncing ball, you got a lot of catching up to do. Start here, here (especially), then onto this one and then finally. That is the bare minimum you need for background. If you want more click on the Syria label at the bottom. There is lots to read.
It is quite clear that Turkey is covering up for the fact that the alleged refugee camps are nothing but staged movie sets.
With a few 100 persons milling about. Turks, possibly Jordanians, perhaps even Israelis, a few bought and paid for Syrians. The destabilizers. And possibly some people who do not wish to be there.
Now that you are up to speed. I am going to link to this article from the CBC.
The reporters premise and logic as to why Turkey is blocking reporters is completely flawed.
In fact it is down right nonsensical!!!
But, I'll give it to you anyway.
In a nutshell: The reporter postulates that Turkey is covering up for Syria- that is the ludicrous.
There is no reason or rhyme for Turkey to be engaging in that type of behaviour!
After all, Erdogan is "sad" and they paraded Ms Jolie around for the cameras in a carefully staged event. Therefore covering for Syria is preposterous. They have been more then happy to exploit the situation for political gain.
Of course that line of "reasoning" is meant to deliver the message to the Western media audience that Syria is bad. Spin, spin, spin.....
But here is the meat and potatoes of the matter. Quoting-
"I asked a Turkish reporter today why her government isn't allowing media access to the four, soon to be five or more, refugee camps"
"She seemed just as puzzled as the rest of us. "We do not understand" either, she said. "Why would you hide the good things that you are doing?"
Why would Turkey hide the good things they are doing?
The most obvious answer to that is...... the million dollar response..
They really and truly aren't doing any good things!!!
Let's read how heavily the camps are guarded and hidden
Therefore, it is not possible to know who is really in the camps? Or if anyone is in the camps.
The Syrians are being housed in Turkish Red Crescent camps. Technically, they entered Turkey illegally, so the camps are fenced and they are not free to come and go.
But, it's the next part that's more bothersome. The entire fenced perimeter of each camp is covered with tarps.
We can't see in, they can't see out.
That is exactly the way the Turkish government wants it and that is what is ramping up all the suspicion.
Hold on, it gets even better boys and girls!
At three different camps we visited we were stopped from talking to (alleged) Syrian refugees.
The military also ordered us away from the border when we tried to wait for refugees who may have been crossing there.
To wait for refugees who may have been crossing? What if the reality is, no one is crossing?
And then curiously the spin doctor mentions a protest going on in the camps?
"After many hours of trying, we managed to speak through a fence to refugees on two occasions. Once when there was a protest going on and police were otherwise engaged and the second time when the police had walked away from a stretch of the fence for a spell."
A protest in the camps? Why?
Why would the people who were alleged to be there for their own safety and security be protesting?
One possibility is that some persons may have been brought there against their will?
Or mislead. Deceived. And they want to leave. This has to be considered.
The reporter did get to talk to some persons and doesn't even mention what was discussed? Curious.
The reporter in fact blathers on about having to sneak around to do her job...
But fails to mention what the alleged refugees, if she really did speak to any, actually told here.
