Wikileaks Is About To Expose The Turkish 'Coup', But Someone Is Trying To Silence Them

Wikileaks claimed Monday it was under attack after it announced it would release hundreds of thousands of documents related to Turkey and the failed military coup attempted Friday, CNET reported.

The organization, which has released information on everything from war crimes to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, announced Sunday it would be releasing 100,000 documents related to Turkey’s “political power structure,” some of which detail the “leadup” to the coup.

 

Wikileaks anticipated the release would be censored in Turkey, cautioning in a three-part tweet posted Monday:

Turks will likely be censored to prevent them reading our pending release of 100k+ docs on politics leading up to the coup. We ask that Turks are ready with censorship bypassing systems such as TorBrowser and uTorrent and that everyone else is ready to help them bypass censorship and push our links through the censorship to come.

 

The Turkish government, headed by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has increasingly ramped up censorship efforts against journalists, lending credibility to Wikileaks suspicions their release may not fully reach Turkish citizens—especially considering the latest leak concerns his ruling party, AKP.

As CNET noted:

Facebook, Twitter and YouTube were reportedly blocked in Turkey during the attempted coup Friday, but many residents appear to have gotten around the blocks, posting messages and videos, likely using VPNs or other anonymizing services.”

Throughout Monday, Wikileaks continued to promote the release.

They then tweeted that instead of 100,000 documents, they would actually be releasing far more. “Our pending release of 100k docs on Turkish political power? Just kidding. The first batch is 300k emails, 500k docs,” they announced.

But just hours later, they alerted followers their website was being attacked. “Our infrastructure is under sustained attack,” they tweeted, alongside the hashtag, #TurkeyPurge.

 

We are unsure of the true origin of the attack. The timing suggests a Turkish state power faction or its allies. We will prevail & publish,” Wikileaks tweeted shortly after.

 

An hour later, the organization remained resolute in its determination to publish the hundreds of thousands of documents. “Coming Tuesday: The#ErdoganEmails: 300 thousand internal emails from Erdo?an’s AKP – through to July 7, 2016,” they tweeted.

After tweeting further about the ongoing cyber attacks, Wikileaks eventually announced Tuesday they had released the first installment of emails, which can be viewed here. The emails are from the server of the AKP.

 

The failed military coup in Turkey over the weekend heightened tensions within the country, where President Erdo?an has grown increasingly autocratic. The Turkish government has also been implicated in the rise of ISIS and has been accused of allowing fighters to cross through their borders and providing them with medical assistance.

The coup, which continues to be mired in uncertainties, accusations, and conflicting reports, left Turkish citizens between a rock and a hard place—a military coup or an increasingly oppressive democratically-elected leader who has now overseen 50,000 suspensions or detainments of government employees regarding the military’s failed attempt to seize power.

It seems Wikileak’s release of information on Turkish power structures could not come at a more vital time—that is, so long as it reaches the Turkish people.

I told you this coup came from the west, prepared in secret.

What I think happened according to the charts is Erdogan was tipped off

so he did a faux coup so he could purge those who were going to do it.

The real target is Putin.

Agreed, the FSA is almost worthless now as a controlled opposition force and the Syrian army has regained most of the territory it needs to be stable. Zion has to produce a dramatic twist to change the war back in its favor.

Now that we've gorged on our daily dosage of top drawer intelligence from the secret files of American Exceptionalist armchair experts, the droppings of another Wikileaks hangout, the soi disant dispatches from the CPR-faction of Russian media minders, and assorted revelations about high income returns for a couple of hours a day at the computer.....

all of which leave us endlessly amused but never more informed...

the careful reader will be primed and ready for the kind of briefing necessary for building their own informed precis of the situation! Despite the gnashing of teeth and muttering in beards of those who greatly resent any challenge to their monopoly of commentary here then,

we are pleased to have on offer for your inspection: Mediatized Mendacity: 'Coup' de la Quatrieme Pouvoir? - Day Five: The Phony Coup - The Conspiracy Widens

Not for the short pants among us, nor the serially shy of reading and comprehension skills,

but nevertheless - for those who demand to know MOAR - than what meets the eye///the real deal - from an Anatolia time out of mind!

Wikileaks had 10,000 (or was it 100,000?) documents ready within hours of the coup. Maybe they also knew it was going to happen.

Simple really - ISIS is slowly but surely going down. Somebody is going to have to take a fall for it. Guess who? It won't the US, Israel or the UK. Erdogan has been suckered in as the fallguy. The aim is to convince the sheeple that Erdogan created ISIS and ran it all by his lonesome. Therefore  he must go and Turkey  must be led by a 'safe pair of hands' or maybe a 'strongman' but certainly not a 'dictator' or even worse a New Hitler (TM).

Do you think your comments are clever si tu prends des mots in French in the middle and mummble fumble it up so it sounds important. Toss a bit of evil Tel Aviv in between and say everybody else in here is sooo terribly wrong, and I am soo terribly right because I sit in Anatolia and know what shit is going on. 

Well less bold claims and more factual statements and people will actually start to take you serious and upvote you.

Yeah, first sentence incorrectly spells Costa-Gavras. Nails on chalkboard moment and I am far from a grammar nazi, but it set the tone for the rest of the piece.  I wished he/she/it could stick to bullet points and stop with the editorializing and self aggrandizing neologisms.

It was like eating a turd for the nutritional value of a peanut that may or may not be in there.

What I think is happening  , is that the World is finally turning on the globalist asshole power-trippers. Guns or not, free speech or not, PEOPLE will fight these assholes, and ANYONE who is part of their apparatus. 

Globalists, "Enemy" be thy name. 

Regardless of how ANYONE chooses to "self-identify", the globalists' days are numbered. 

If they think that the military, police, customs agents, or anyone else, will blindly follow orders indefinitely, while they watch their way of life go down the tubes, guess again. 

The people of Earth do not need to be "micromanaged'. The only government People need, is that which keeps their best interests at heart. Globalists have proved, beyond a reasonable doubt, that "it sure as shit ain't them". 

The only things they've successfully proved, is that they are narcissistic, sociopathic, and unfit to lead. 

Get ready for the explosion.

@ Vlad the Inhaler: 

I beg to differ.

TPTB have managed to fool some of the people, ALL of the time, but they are the minority. Despite differences in opinion on certain topics, the "peons" are wising up. 

There is hope. Even if Trump loses, the damage is done. NOBODY will trust Establshment candidates, regardless of false promises, and false narratives.

Trust has been undermined, deservedly so.

The media was exposed with Ron Paul and now with Trump only he is way bigger. He called them out day one.

All of this BS needs the media help, all the color revolutions were run through Anderson Cooper former CIA.

bigkahuna's picture

Correct, though the media was only exposed to us by RP. We were already aware of problems and propaganda - and we had it shoved back in our face when RP was completely shut out in 08 and 12 -- though 08 was imo a more powerful movement. We came back in 12 though I would say that we were somewhat demoralized by 08.

Trump has brought the same corruption we saw especially in 08 and in 12 right out in front of regular people by exercising raw power over the msm. The regulars are getting it - slowly one at a time...

I know people who think Hillary and Trump are about the same.  Good, bad, or otherwise, they are definitely not the same.  Of course, a lot of people I know just don't care.

If you don't see or feel the seething rage building up within the US then I don't know what to say.  Justice will happen.  Every civilized person wants it to be through civilized means, but TPTB have shit all over that.  When Justice can't be obtained through civilized means, Justice comes from other less desirable directions.  Justice will eventually have its day.

When Justice is turned into Just Us bad things always happen.

"If they think that the military, police, customs agents, or anyone else, will blindly follow orders indefinitely, while they watch their way of life go down the tubes, guess again."

Yes, they will, because their "way of life" is balanced on their paycheck.   Millions of people across the nation work jobs they hate because they have no choice.  They are backed into a corner with their obligations.  Public employees will become traitors for their paycheck.  You can already tell that millions of americans across the nation are forfeiting ethics, morals and principles to support a criminal for President.  Need I say more?  

Shockwave's picture

If you think millions of US military fighters are going to dire on their families and neighbors to continue their E1-E5 salary of 450-1000 a month?

No way. Even when I was enlisted in the Marines almost a decade ago, there was discussion of what would happen if we were turned towards the citizens.

Almost all said they would refuse, except a few hardcore "gov is always right" types. Theyd solit off, along with brass who would not folloe these orders.

Exceptions being something like a national emergency from an outbreak of some pathogen

Till the sheeple awake and suck it up that they have been lied to though the msm, academia, pop culture and politics.

Stop drinking the fucking kool-aid, start thinking how you are being lead around by the fucking nose, and grow some brains.

Odd that when Putin was chasing all the oligarchs out of Russia, the Israeli media was accusing Putin of anti-semitism. Some of the oligarchs fled to England, some to France, some to Israel where they were given a heroes welcome.

Maybe they should just release them instead of announcing it first.

Like those Hillary emails that were supposed to sink her candidacy. Wikileaks is all mouth and hype. I'll believe what they say WHEN they actually do it AND when the leaks turn out to be what they said they would be.

Only braggers and other insecure people say what they will do before they do it.

In this case, if there is a power (regime) outside of Turkey that was involved, they will be cyber attacking Wikileaks. Duh!

p.s. If the hand of Soros is involved (at the civic level), then he'd better stay put in his bunker, cause assassins will be gunning for him.
