Wayne Madsen Report – July 16-18, 2016 — SPECIAL REPORT. Turkish sources: Erdogan behind “false flag” coup
WMR has been informed by Turkish and foreign intelligence sources inside Turkey that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan staged the July 15 military coup in order to determine what sections of the military would support it. Erdogan, who was never in any real danger of being overthrown by the small group of mid- and lower-ranking military officers who rallied to support the coup, will use the incident as a way to flush out supporters of exiled Turkish charismatic Islamic leader Fethulleh Gulen.
Turkish sources report that the coup was limited by Erdogan’s design from the very start. Although the coup began as a classic military overthrow of a civilian government, with strategic points — the two cross-Bosporus bridges, the Istanbul international airport, the state broadcast network TRT, and the General Staff headquarters in Ankara — all being taken by the coup leaders, it was doomed to failure.
It is still a mystery how the coup leaders, who limited their actions to seizing a few but not all strategic centers, could shut down all social media in Turkey, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. In fact, after Erdogan left his holiday hotel in Marmaris on the Aegean Sea, his plane was reportedly refused landing at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport, which was in rebel hands. Erdogan’s propaganda operation then began to put out false information that Erdogan, who was in the air on his presidential plane, was seeking asylum in Germany. WMR’s sources report that Erdogan’s plane never strayed far from Turkish airspace. Although major social media was shut down, Erdogan appeared on FaceTime from his iPhone on CNN Turk, which had not yet been seized by the rebel military forces.
If the coup had been a serious attempt, FaceTime would have been cut off and CNN Turk would have been seized at the same time that TRT was taken over. Also, the state-run Anadolu news agency continued to issue statements from Prime Minister Binali Yildirim claiming that the coup had been put down just after it started. An actual coup would have seen the news agency also shut down…
Our sources in Turkey claim that the coup attempt was a false flag operation for a number of reasons:
- The coup attempt started out as a textbook overthrow but rapidly fell apart. Many in Turkey believe that if such a coup was a serious operation, it would not have dissipated so rapidly.
- After first claiming they had total control of Turkey, the coup leaders gave up with only token resistance.
- By closing all lanes on the cross-Bosporus bridges and not keeping one lane open so people could get home from work, the population grew angry at the “coup” and its “leaders.”
- Erdogan’s plane landed without incident. In an actual coup, his plane would have been surrounded by the military and he would have been placed under arrest. Or, if the presidential plane insisted on landing against the military’s orders, it could have been shot down.
- Erdogan was met at the airport by a crowd waving brand new Turkish flags, the folds still visible. This is always a sign of George Soros’s involvement in themed revolutions, with protesters always waving factory-fresh flags. Some Erdogan supporters were also seen waving brand new flags representing the Muslim separatist group of East Turkestan in western China, a group supported by Soros. Soros’s Open Society Institute operates freely in Istanbul and Soros is on friendly terms with Erdogan.
- Erdogan’s government ordered the imams to begin using the minarets to urge people into the streets. In an actual military coup, the minaret speaker systems would have been ordered to remain silent or power would have been cut off to the mosques. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) supporters were marching in the streets hand-in-hand with imams and other Muslim officials shouting “Allahu Akbar.”
- The Pentagon claims it was surprised by the coup. However, U.S. military officers are attached as NATO liaison officers to the Turkish Defense Ministry and Turkish officers work inside the Pentagon. It is doubtful that such a coup could have been planned by a small group of Turkish officers without the Turkish General Staff and U.S. liaison officers knowing about it.
- Erdogan’s government, on the morning after the coup attempt, ordered the sacking of 2,745 judges.
There were also three military attacks on the Turkish parliament in Ankara. It is very possible that these were carried out by pro-Erdogan military units. Erdogan has been trying to force through a new Constitution for Turkey that would confer even more powers on the president. Erdogan has also seized control of Gulen-owned media, including the newspaper Zaman and he recently suggested that Syrian refugees in Turkey, including a number of jihadists, be granted Turkish citizenship. These moves were met with hostility by Turkey’s opposition parties in parliament. By ordering an attack on parliament, Erdogan was sending a not-so-subtle message to the opposition. In the wake of the coup, Erdogan has silenced the political opposition while having messages of support from U.S. president Barack Obama, German chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, and EU President Donald Tusk, among others…

At long last, the much anticipated redacted chapter of the congressional 9/11 report has been released. With a few obligatory caveats, members of the Saudi royal family and intelligence are strongly implicated as providing financial and logistic support to the alleged hi-jackers . With numerous redactions remaining however, we can only continue to speculate on the role of the British firm BAE Systems (reported to be implicated through the Saudi al Yamamah deal at LaRouchePAC), and the Israeli aviation security company ICTS International (according to a source at the Wayne Madsen Report, this firm is implicated in a footnote within the chapter)…

Wayne Madsen Report – July 13-14, 2016 — “Big Mother” takes over helm of UK
The “Queen of Surveillance,” UK Home Secretary Theresa May, has assumed the office of Prime Minister. May is a longtime champion of every form of intrusive surveillance that ever came before her desk at the Home Office. For Britain, what is already the world’s leading high-tech surveillance state will now move closer to George Orwell’s dystopian futuristic Britain, a country he dubbed “Airstrip One.” …
May’s pet project at the Home Office has been the passage of the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers (DRIP) Act, legislation that saw its second reading on the way to final passage in the House of Lords. However, Liberal Democratic lords have demanded changes to the legislation and have slowed its final passage.
DRIP will take Britain from being a highly-intrusive nation to one of almost total electronic surveillance…
Although May was a supporter of the remain in the EU campaign, she now says she will oversee Britain’s extrication from the organization. However, many in Britain see May’s sudden support for Brexit as her golden opportunity to leave the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights, therefore removing a major stumbling block on implementation of her surveillance law.
In stateside election news, we headlined the inevitable in our previous installment, the day before it was made official. Here is how it played out from July the 5th…

Though not mentioned in the lawsuit, at least one scientific study of the effects of the Corexit, a heavily used dispersant during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, showed that the dispersant may cause serious harm on a microbial level, hindering the oil bioremediation process.
According to a March 2011 studyby [sic] the Inter-Research Science Center, scientists studied the presence of Corexit in oil from the Deepwater Horizon explosion along the Louisiana coast and found that Corexit was toxic to two crucial, naturally occurring bacteria that aid the bioremediation process of breaking down oil so it becomes nontoxic to other life.
The study found that Corexit was nontoxic to a third bacteria prevalent in the Gulf of Mexico, which does not contribute to breaking down oil but is highly toxic to marine life, especially to marine and land mammals, including humans. This is the bacteria Vibrio vulnificus. Vibrio vulnificus has been found in high concentrations in tar balls along the Gulf Coast.
