"Last week it was about protecting an ancient site in Syria. Last year
it was hunting rifles. Erdogan is starting to look a lot like a waterboy"
I saw the talk of protecting that ancient site, any excuse.
Access to YouTube has been cut off in Turkey after an explosive leak
of audiotapes that appeared to show ministers talking about provoking
military intervention in Syria. Other social media have already been
blocked ahead of tumultuous local elections.
The latest leaked audio recording, which reportedly led to the
ban, appears to show top government officials discussing a
potential attack on the tomb of Suleyman Shah, the grandfather of
the founder of the Ottoman Empire.
The tomb is in Syrian territory, but protected by Turkish
On the tape, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu is heard to
say that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan sees any attack as
