Washington Post Obfuscates, GREATLY, on Erdogans's Brussels "warning"

What a perfect example of spin. A truly ideal case of twisting the words to fit the agenda:
And, yes, boys and girls as has been written here for so very long now Turkey IS BEING TARGETED FOR DESTABILIZATION. And everyone promoting the demonization of a targeted nation, witting or unwitting, is playing into Sykes Picot 2 and the Israeli expansionist agenda known as Kurdistan or Israel 2.0 and all the mayhem occurring present day.
Wapo: Turkey’s Erdogan warned of Brussels terror just days before it happened

Except Erdogan did not warn of this  or any terror attack immediately preceding it's occurrence

 And Erdogan is absolutely correct when he claims the EU turns a blind eye to PKK terror

The sole reason Erdogan mentioned Brussels was because Ahmet Davutoglu had just been in Brussels and the EU allowed, I would say encouraged, the presence of PKK at the summit

I, myself, interpret Erdogan's assertion as a statement of fact! Equal to play with fire, get burned.

Erdoğan recalled Brussels has been hosting a EU-Turkey summit where European Union leaders were trying to convince Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu to help end Europe’s migration crisis in return for financial and political concessions.
The Belgian government allowed supporters of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) to pitch tents before the Turkey-EU summit in Brussels near the EU council building, Erdoğan said.
Since the EU acknowledges/recognizes the PKK as a terror group, why would they allow them to pitch tents near the EU council building before the summit, other then to antagonize the Turkish representatives?
“These [countries] are not honest, not sincere and they are acing ambivalently,” Erdoğan said. “Whom are you deceiving? Be honest, be sincere. There is no Turkey or Turkish nation who will be deceived. The name of this is surrendering to terror. These [countries] surrendered to terror.”

There is no reason for the bomb, which exploded in Ankara, not to explode in Brussels, where an opportunity to show off in the heart of the city to supporters of the terror organization is presented, or in any city in Europe. Despite this clear reality, European countries are paying no attention, as if they are dancing in a minefield. You can never know when you are stepping on a mine. But it is clear that this is an inevitable end, he said, referring to the PKK and the March 13 suicide bomb attack which killed at least 35 people in the heart of Ankara.
 Play with fire. Get burned

A PKK offshoot claimed responsibility for both the Feb. 17 and March 13 suicide bombings that killed at least 66 people in Ankara. 

“I’m once more calling on the countries which directly or indirectly lend support to terror organizations: You are nursing a viper in your bosom. That viper you have been nourishing can bite you at any time,” he added.
Play with fire. Get burned

When a main stream war mongering media outlet of the 'stature' of Washington Post clearly and blatantly misrepresents the actions of another nation's leader, you know that nation and it's leader are under the gun. We've seen this time and time again.  In nation after nation.

The Wapo is extremely soft on PKK terrorism while blaming Erdogan for ISIS terrorism
Of course. I would suggest, quite safely, that Wapo look to US/UK to place blame for the very existence of  ISIS. 


Turkey and the Discourse of Authoritarianism/ The West's Delusion of Morality


  1. OT but not really

    regarding:- http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/209626

    Turkish authorizes reported on Sunday that DNA tests have confirmed the identity of Saturday’s Istanbul suicide bomber who killed three Israelis and one Iranian citizen.

    Mehmet Ozturk, a 23-year-old terrorist affiliated with ISIS, has been named as the attacker in the deadly blast that rocked a popular Istanbul shopping center.

    Initially Turkey had named Kurdish separatists affiliated with the PKK as being suspects, but later shifted their investigation to ISIS members.

    The bomber’s DNA, found at the scene of the attack, was compared to samples taken from Ozturk’s family, confirming the identity of the attacker.

    I may be wrong BUT, as far as I know [and I'm certainly open to reliable & well-documented correction on this point ... i.e. NOT Wikipedia], DNA samples take time to cultivate. My recollection is something on the order of 3 or 4 days minimum.

    The event occurred on Saturday 19th.

    The Israeli National News reports the on Sunday 20th the Turks had already identified the culprit through an alleged DNA sample "found at the scene" with DNA "samples taken from Ozturk’s family"

    Let's not even bother with mere petty trivialities like wondering about how many hours it took to identify, locate, collect, transport etc DNA samples from not only the crime scene itself, but also from the alleged culprit's family member[s], and let's just for a moment focus on how long it took them [or didn't take them ;-)] to grow the requisite DNA cultures in their Lab?

    1. Can you find information from the Turks regarding the process of identification?
      Can you leave information regarding how long it takes to identify using DNA? Not wikipedia?

      Being honest here I figure with the latest tech this type of info would be quicker to gain then ever.
      but I don't know for certain


      I would appreciate the assistance. :)

  2. For everyone regarding DNA analysis Found this from the FBI
    Rapid DNA analysis

    Q: What is Rapid DNA or Rapid DNA Analysis?

    A: Rapid DNA, or Rapid DNA Analysis, describes the fully automated (hands free) process of developing a CODIS Core STR profile from a reference sample buccal swab. The “swab in – profile out” process consists of automated extraction, amplification, separation, detection, and allele calling without human intervention.

    : What is the Rapid DNA Index System (RDIS)?

    A: Rapid DNA Index System (RDIS) is the proposed fourth tier of NDIS; a fully integrated system capable of performing reference sample buccal swab STR analysis in 1-2 hours and initiating DNA enrollment and searches from a police booking station.

    Q: How is the FBI involved in the development of Rapid DNA technology?

    A: The FBI established a Rapid DNA Program Office in 2010 to direct the development and integration of Rapid DNA technology for use by law enforcement. The Program Office works with the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Institute of Justice, and other federal agencies to ensure the coordinated development of this new technology among federal agencies. The Program Office also works with state and local law enforcement agencies and state bureaus of identification through the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division Advisory Policy Board to facilitate the effective and efficient integration of Rapid DNA in the police booking environment.

    Q: What is the goal of the FBI’s initiative on Rapid DNA development?

    A: The goal of the FBI’s Rapid DNA initiative is to develop commercial instruments capable of producing a CODIS-compatible DNA profile within two hours and to integrate those instruments effectively within the existing CODIS structure to search unsolved crimes while an arrestee is in police custody during the booking process. The FBI has been working on how to integrate this technology first into CODIS laboratory operations and then into police booking locations.

    Q: Do these goals include the use of Rapid DNA technology on crime scene (forensic) samples?

    A: At this time, these goals do not include the use of Rapid DNA technology on crime scene (forensic) samples because of the differences between forensic and known reference (offender/arrestee) samples. These differences may include the nature or type of sample, typical sample quantity, and potential for reanalysis. A forensic sample may not be amenable to fully automated processing due to limitations in its quality and quantity.


  3. Q: Is the Rapid DNA technology currently operational?

    A: Several manufacturers have developed instruments for Rapid DNA analysis. These instruments are now being tested and evaluated by the FBI Laboratory and several other Federal agencies, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Army Crime Laboratory. In January 2013, the manufacturers of the instruments attended a Scientific Working Group on DNA Analysis Methods (SWGDAM) meeting to discuss their instruments and obtain feedback on validation. Because developmental validation is a crucial first step in the commercial use of these instruments, SWGDAM, through its Rapid DNA Committee, has established a dialog with the manufacturers to assist them in their validation effort (see SWGDAM FAQs at http://swgdam.org/faq.html). The FBI does not consider these Rapid DNA instruments for Rapid DNA Analysis operational until all applicable QAS validation standards are met and all necessary NDIS approvals are in place.

    Q: Can a Rapid DNA instrument be used by an accredited forensic laboratory to develop DNA profiles from known reference samples?

    A: If the following assumptions are met and a laboratory is in compliance with the FBI Director’s Quality Assurance Standards (QAS) enumerated below, a Rapid DNA instrument may be used to develop DNA profiles from known reference samples. As of March 2014, use of a Rapid DNA instrument by an accredited laboratory would be limited to Modified Rapid DNA Analysis defined below.


    1. A Rapid DNA instrument must be operated by an accredited forensic laboratory as required by the DNA Identification Act of 1994;

    2. An accredited forensic laboratory must develop a DNA profile from a known reference sample; and

    3. The Rapid DNA instrument must be used to conduct Modified Rapid DNA Analysis, which describes the automated (hands free) process of developing a CODIS Core STR profile from a known reference sample. This process consists of integrated extraction, amplification, separation, and detection without human intervention, but requires human interpretation and technical review.

    Use of a Rapid DNA instrument to conduct Modified Rapid DNA Analysis on known reference samples by an accredited laboratory requires compliance with the following....

    It appears that Rapid DNA identification technology accredited labs have been around since '94 with some updated requirements around 2014- FBI established 2010

    Results in 1-2 hours. Considering it's 2016 presently it would seem this type of identification is quite quick
