US Commander Campbell: The man behind the failed coup in Turkey- Named ahead of fire

The plot thickens... Fire breaks out near NATO/American base in Turkey

hattip ally:Fire breaks out near NATO base in Turkey

US Airbase in Turkey engulfed in Fire after Media IDs US General as Coup Leader
"Update: The Fire was started just two hours after Turkish paper Yeni Safak identified US Army General and NATO International Security Assistance Force Commander John F. Campbell as the leader of the coup!"

I wouldn't think Turkey would make this type of accusation, unless they had substantial information. Would you?

 A former U.S. commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), a NATO-led security mission in Afghanistan, was the organizer of the July 15 military coup attempt in Turkey, sources said.

The US and NATO are hand in glove.

General John F. Campbell was one of the top figures who organized and managed the soldiers behind the failed coup attempt in Turkey, sources close to ongoing legal process of pro-coup detainees said.

Campbell also managed more than $2 billion money transactions via UBA Bank in Nigeria by using CIA links to distribute among the pro-coup military personnel in Turkey.

The ongoing investigation unveiled that Campbell had paid at least two secret visits to Turkey since May, until the day of the coup attempt.

The coup plot that was foiled by the comprehensive effort of Turkish Nation, including its citizens, politicians, media and police forces, was organized by the Fethullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) led-by so-called cleric Fethullah Gülen who has been living in self-exile in America for several years.

American Intelligence, Military and other institutions are accused of supporting the FETO leader Gülen and his gangs for the military coup.
Sputnik- while engaging in shoot the messenger and a bit of sensationalism regarding American nukes stored in Turkey
  Hours after the publication of the article, the NATO military base in Izmir became victim of a mass fire that continues to rage on.

Engaging in some obfuscation
 Turkish political analyst Ilhan Tanir tweeted an image of the front page of pro-AKP newspaper Yeni Safak on Sunday, which names retired US General John F. Campbell as one of the leaders of Turkey’s failed coup. Gen. Campbell does not appear to have served for any period of time at the US’ only military base in Turkey, Incirlik Air Base.
 The Turkish daily reported that Campbell had top secret meetings at the Erzurum military base and Incirlik air base in Turkey, adding that the US general "directed the process of trending / blacklisting the military officers in the base."
 The US's ONLY Military base in Turkey-LOL- from an Egyptian publication.
What's with the lying? What's with the attempts to mislead? Couldn't General Campbell have served at any of the NATO bases? Of course he could have. How about at Izmir? 
The place with the fire!
Izmir Air Station is a United States Air Force facility in Izmir, Turkey. It is located 320 km (200 mi) SSW of Istanbul, on the western coast of Turkey.
This base sounds so familiar to me- As if there is another post here that has something to do with that base

Aha!!!! Janes- US arms shipment to Syrian rebels detailed: Infantry Weapons
 The solicitation was subsequently updated with a detailed packing list that showed the cargo had a total weight of 994 tonnes, a little under half of which was to be unloaded at Agalar, a military pier near the Turkish town of Tasucu,

From Sputnik: The fire threatens US munitions stockpiles at the base which could result in a severe exacerbation of the fire, loss of expensive weaponry, and safety dangers.

It would seem some, many, or all of the weapons the US brought in at the pier would have made their way to Izmir? 

UPDATE: Geraldo Rivera Vouches for General John F. Campbell's Whereabouts the Day of the Coup- They were having a beer. Together.

Seriously- You just can't make this stuff up! I laughed at an absurdity that is passed off as  credible.
"In fact, on the day of the coup I think I was in New York City  with Geraldo having a beer," he added.
The newsman corroborated the general's claim.
Or so Fox News Claims? Because they offer up no quoted verification from Geraldo Rivera. No bar. No time. Nothing-  Only hearsay from Fox News. "The newsman corroborated the general's claim." Fox News says but Geraldo Rivera didn't!

Canadian/Gulen Connection To Turkey's Coup & Turkey releases 1200 

Yup, Turkey has released 1200 grunts and you can bet you will read that nowhere else. As for the Canadian man arrested- There are images of him with Gulen.


  1. This will take some chewing over-

    Newsbud Breaking News: Turkey’s Coup Plotters are Members of NATO’s Rapid Deployable Corps (according to BellingCat!) -

  2. Hey MMM:

    I'm not confident Erdogan didn't/wouldn't ask Germany for asylum. Surely if the coup succeeded he was looking at options. I can't imagine any persons survival instinct when threatened not kicking in. Self preservation etc

    It's really not outrageous to consider- so I don't understand why Sibel thinks it is

    Then when you look at what's been ongoing in Germany the last few days...

    The train, the mall shooter, the woman hacked by the refugee- it surely appears someone is pressuring or warning Merkel-

    When I think of Germany, said this hubby last night, NATO was created to keep Germany down and Russia out-

    If Erdogan did reach out to Germany- this tells us something about the inner workings of Germany, like their not entirely on board with NATO. Which wouldn't be surprising- all things considered

    It is also bolster the coup as a real attempt against Turkey, which, I believe it was.

    1. I should qualify my statement regarding the possibility of Erdogan asking someone, somewhere for asylum, should the coup have succeeded...

      It's possible, BUT that does not make the NBC narrative correct.

      I do think the NBC 'news' regarding Erdogan attempting to flee was part of a propaganda campaign.

      On the other hand it's possible the NATO media had access to information we know nothing of.

      That all said... I still can't imagine Erdogan was not thinking options- especially after an attempt was made to capture and maybe kill him.

      Is that more clear?

    2. Sibel has been exposing that NBC originated story for a few days now, and I think she is correct, it is a very strong indicator of US instigation.

      However, what's giving me cognitive dissonance here is the fact that our old friend Bellingcat can be revealing any truth. I suppose even propagandists of his calibre have to be honest sometimes, but still, WTF is going on here?

      I'm very surprised that nobody here is questioning the Bellingcat story or the motivation behind it. But, I don't have the answer myself - it is perplexing.

    3. Hi MMM:

      Yikes!! I understand the cognitive dissonance, completely! As for Bellingcat, I never read their stuff- at all- I used to but haven't for a long time now-

      Think there is an ulterior motive? Probably there is.

    4. OK I'm forcing myself to read Bellingcat- I will then have to disinfect my eyes-

      Right away i notice, it's a very limited expose- admittedly so- focusing on land forces- Without mentioning the control of the skies aspect- the involvement of the air force. Or any maritime aspects

      Doesn't mention the snipers at the Bosphorous bridge that I can see? (though I'm just skimming)

      France 24 had reporters covering the live fire being used against protestors- I had a video from that night as it happened-

      Love those reporters- letting their NATO masters know what's going on.

      So would Bellingcat, to gain or maintain credibility, expose part of the coup? By engaging in a limited hangout?

      I think that's entirely possible.
      Anyone else?

    5. Yes, it is quite limited, although interesting to read the coup communique they don't reveal anything startling - no non-Turkish players for example. Clearly there would have been much more communication than the sample being exposed here. In fact all this WhatsApp dialogue could just be a transcribed subset of some more comprehensive communication channel that US/Israel would have been monitoring. A limited hangout.

      I think Sibel made too much of this, and she should have declared that BellingCat is a known conduit for the 'Western' powers.

    6. MMM: Between me and you and all the other readers, I would say she made to much of it also-

      She definitely should have mentioned Bellingcats bias if she was going to use the info

  3. Penny: I had a post on Campbell all up and ready to go...after my CawRant gets posted today. One of the `tweets`following the Turkish Newspapers cover story on Campbell being the coupmeister was that he`s `been retired for 3 months`. IMO, that does not exclude him being involved and using `retirement`as a cover. There`s also a story about someone called Graham Fuller. Do you know anything about him. Thanks

    1. Graham Fuller

    2. Hey Greencrow:

      I saw the 'retired' crap. And your correct it does not exclude him from being involved- it's the same type of obfuscation as the eyptian source used
      "at the US’ only military base in Turkey, Incirlik Air Base" LOL- as if just a few minutes of digging won't drag up all kinds of US/NATO bases this man could have been stationed at!

      Graham Fuller- CIA- Boston Bombing
      You'll find plenty!

      commenter here: "Alleged Boston Bombers' Uncle Ruslan Tsarni [Tsarnaev] was married with Samantha Ankara Fuller, daughter of this guy listed below. He served 20 years as an operations officer in the CIA.

      In 1995, Tsarnaev incorporated the Congress of Chechen International Organizations in Maryland, using as the address listed on incorporation documents. 11114 Whisperwood Ln, in Rockville Maryland, the home address of his then-father-in-law Graham Fuller. “Congress of Chechen International” c/o Graham Fuller

      Political literature list of CIA Graham Fuller:

      Very interesting Graham Fuller (CIA) book: (father in law of Ruslan Tsarni)

      Marriage and divorce confirmed by

      "I believe that this is a breakthrough for the “jason bourne” patsy identity of those two poor boys and it explains why Tamerlan was phoning his uncle Ruslan while the police was hunting them with guns and that he said ” uncle please excuse what my (mothers) family (suleimanov) has done, please help us. WE are innocent!”. Tamerlan had not contacted his CIA uncle for years before this sudden phone call. This is getting better than a movie script!"

      The uncle had spook written all over him!
      As soon as the two men were identified and the Uncle started talking..
      and kept on talking, my 'spidey senses tingled'
      My spook alert was on
      He was delivering the narrative and he set the two brothers up

      From a comment left here way back and I know there are posts here where he is mentioned- he's tied to an oil company near russian border, cia, throw in some Gulen affiliates and for good measure Kosovo

      Your head will spin GC, seriously!

  4. Yes, it looks as though the Turks read about Campbell being the coup plotter and decided to burn Izmir down.....burning out the rat`s it were. So much is going on and Amerikans are totally unaware and mesmerized by the silliness going on at the farcical DNC

    1. Yah, Hillary- or Killary if you prefer- the next US president- and everything will get sooooo much worse
      That woman is a psycho and one can only expect pure evil from her

    2. GC: last time I talked about Mr Fuller was in this post

      "A former CIA station chief in Kabul and the author of “The Future of Political Islam,” Graham Fuller was one of Gulen’s official references in Gulen’s Green Card application, along with another ex-CIA George Fidas and former U.S. ambassador to Turkey Morton Abromovitz, after Gulen rushed to U.S.A. from Turkey in 1999. It is curious how and why an Imam from Turkey had this sort of connections in U.S.A. "

  5. quick search as I'm not supposed 2 be doing this :)

    sweet, no ?

  6. On another note Penny, have you seen Hillary's "seizure"? Google it, it's fascinating. If I had been skeptic about mkultra and Mandchourian candidates I wouldn't know how to interpret this, but as a believer in trauma based mind control programming it's quite clear that she got some "bugs" in her script.

    1. Omg, gallier2- that's freaky
      I saw a few different videos from various angles

      Is it an epileptic seizure?
      I don't know?
      She joked it off... but.....

    2. That's weird. Later in this video and from a different angle, you can see that a reporters voice to her right triggers the jerking around.

      The same happens to Obama. A teleprompter freeze looks like the obvious cause but it you watch closely, he freezes for half a second at the sound of a voice in the audience and then you see the transformation

    3. I had a neighbour who was susceptible to epileptic seizures and also a diabetic school mate who had hypoglycemic episodes, doesn't even come close to that Hillary episode. An epileptic shakes on the whole body, falls, has foam around the mouth, has all his muscles contracting incontrollably and recovers only slowly. Nothing like a malfunctioning robot which switches subject like one switches TV channel.

      PS: google "Hillary robot". She has repeatedly stated in interviews that she is one, seems that one of her programmed personnas is robot.

    4. Agreed, Gallier. I've only seen a couple of epileptic seizures and the are full body affairs. What we are looking at, i think, is a switching of alters (or something diabolical).

      In some MK-Ultra programming, children were strapped into chairs (hands and feet) and given electro-shocks through their hands. If the upper body was free to move, this is what it would look like with head and shoulders jerking around.

      I've got to wonder if I'm looking at a body memory of electro-shock playing out.

      Re Hillary as a robot-

      And here's the robot in action-

    5. Hillary is to weird for words- I don't know what to say about her- I'm at a loss

    6. Certainly stretching reality a bit. I cannot see how you can get from what is shown in the two vid's to what you are implying/diagnosing. Especially in the case of the Obama video. I don't know how many black americans you have engaged in conversation with? However, the sort of stuttering pattern presented as some kind of mind control short circuiting, is quite prevalent. I had many black tradesmen working for me when I was on construction sites and I can say with certainty the speach pattern was prevalent among more than a few of the members of the crew. I would highly doubt they were under some kind of mind control.

    8. Hey Charles: Not sure what's up with Hillary, however, it's disconcerting to see that happening.
      I know sometime back she had sustained a brain injury, and it's possible that sort of head jerking is a result of some crossed wires, or some psychological meddling, let's say it that way. Of course, we can't know, but we can entertain the possibility of entrainment-

      "When the brain is given a stimulus, through the ears, eyes or other senses, it emits an electrical charge in response, called a Cortical Evoked Response (shown below). These electrical responses travel throughout the brain to become what you "see and hear." This activity can be measured using sensitive electrodes attached to the scalp"

      Through the use of triggers- lights, noise, torture of course- the methods are well known by plenty of doctors and intelligence operatives

      “When the interrogator ‘raised his eyebrow,’ without instructions, Abu Zabaydah ‘slowly walked on his own to the water table and sat down,’” one account said. “…

      When the interrogator snapped his fingers twice, Abu Zabaydah would lie flat on the waterboard.”

      In his MEMORANDUM of 11 May 1953 Sidney Gottlieb lists seven separate experiments conducted by Alden Sears, and gives the number of subjects for five of them, totaling 196 subjects. Experiments were concerned with:

      Experiment 1 - N - 18 Hypnotically induced anxieties to be completed by September 1.

      Experiment 2 - N - 24 Hypnotically increasing ability to learn and recall complex written matter, to be completed by September 1.

      Experiment 3 - N - 30 Polygraph response under Hypnosis to be completed by June 15.

      Experiment 4 - N - 24 Hypnotically increasing ability to observe and recall a complex arrangement of physical objects.

      Experiment 5 - N - 100 Relationship of personality to susceptibility to hypnosis.

      Experiment 6 - The Morse Code problem with emphasis on relatively lower IQ subjects than found on University volunteers.

      Experiment 7 - Recall of hypnotically acquired information by very specific signals.

    9. I didn't see the Obama video- just a few versions of the Hillary seizure-

    10. I not saying she doesn't have a few screws loose, Penny. I'm quite certain she possesses a delusional disorder. However, watching her various behaviors on video or occasionally on the brain box system(TV), her expressions and reactions seem more like one out of control rather than controlled. I don't see signs of seizure, if others do okay. Whatever, her medical records or if she is being used for a covert purpose, will not be information I'll ever be privy to. It's a great to participate at a blog site where informed persons comment and the blogger is confident and passionate.

    11. Hey Charles:

      " I don't see signs of seizure, if others do okay"

      Nor did anyone else- that's the point being made-

      "I not saying she doesn't have a few screws loose, Penny. I'm quite certain she possesses a delusional disorder"

      I always think of her when gadaffi was killed that evil laugh- it made my stomache sick to watch it.

      I relinked some of the previous stuff on mkultra and learned helplessnes, wasn't sure if you were interested in that topic?

      " It's a great to participate at a blog site where informed persons comment and the blogger is confident and passionate"

      Thanks Charles- there are good people here for sure- I'm glad of that

      Confident and passionate? I like that :)

    12. Hey, a new one

    13. hey gallier:
      you really notice her eyes shifting when she roars or whatever she was doing??
      Her as US President is a frightening thought.

  7. I left this at gc and here is for your enjoyment.

  8. It was hard to believe that Erdogan had not much prior knowledge of what was cooking. One thing is that the arrest of 10,000 people in just three days presupposes long preparation. It was not an act of panic arrests. They seem to have been precisely targeted and the operation executed immediately.
    Other thing is the puzzle of the planes which shadowed Erdogan's plane but did not fire. Have they been jammed by the Russians? I can't believe that the Istanbul Airport was not occupied by loyal troops, especially after the bombings. So,Erdogan was flying to a secure place.
    Now, I am sure that the Russians knew all along. They are experts at the spook game. The only question is when they warned Erdogan.

    1. Could they have been jammed by the Russians or were Russian planes flying alongside Erdogan's plane- There are a few in a handy if needed locale, not to far away..;)

      something like that was linked here from a macedonia site- another blogger GC had mentioned it and it's entirely possible

    2. Penny, the Russians were in Northern Syria telling Erdogan where to go

    3. I did not know that- ty Ally

  9. not a revelation by any means :)

      first time I've heard or read that name!


    Not fire but another depot blast.

    Bulgaria seeing escalation?

    1. The blast in Azerbaijan is interesting- cause that area looks to be heating up for sure...

      I'll try to to keep an eye on that situation and Bulgaria, but, should i miss anything which inevitably I will- let me know?

  11. some valid points here, as in US militray bases in Germany to create and monitor 'terrorist' events.

    2. another article over there I'm reading and finding it full of revelations at least for me. I try to be a good 'student' on Russia and policy, but this article is really teaching me much on 5th column

    3. I've got to read that one entirely and perhaps twice, it looks really good!


    From Hurriyet Daily News.

    1. Charles I was just reading that one- did you read my mind? He is 100 percent correct! Turkey is in big danger.

      "This means that the U.S. and the global centers of power are planning to drag Turkey into civil war,” he said"

      Exactly! Exactly what they've been trying to do!!
      That's why the PKK wouldn't take the offer from Erdogan- That's why the PKK ended the ceasefire- All the points I've been making

  13. This comment has been removed by the author.

  14. What do you make of Davotoglu becoming so publically vocal about his role in the SU-24 attack aircraft? Cover for the real shoot down event. The former minister will soon be residing right here in the seat of empire, if the neo-cons and cia gangsters succeed in what is their ultimate goal in Turkey. You've mentioned that goal many times previously.


  15. Sorry about the duplicate post again. Something is up with my phone which I used to comment.

    What I meant to say was Mr. Dovotoglu will reside hear in the good ole USA until the gangsters succeed in getting rid of Erdogan.

    1. I never trusted Davotoglu- not that I know him or anything like that, however, he always came across as shifty- Coming to the US- that's interesting- I've got to do more reading today
      ty Charles!

    2. but you know Charles, right after the shootdown took place, Davotoglu took responsibility, right away

      And it was quite stunning- I had forgotten about that
