Erdogan Says He Has "Confirmed Evidence" The US Supports ISIS

Tyler Durden's picture

One year after this website demonstrated that Turkey was cooperating with the Islamic State, in the very least trading cash in exchange for crude oil sold to various Turkish outposts (a trade which was subsequently ended by the Russian air force), Turkey has flipped the tables and on Tuesday Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he has uncovered evidence that US-led coalition forces have helped support terrorists in Syria - including Isis.

"They give support to terrorist groups including ISIS" Erdogan said during a speech in Ankara on Tuesday, adding that US coalition forces "give support to terrorist groups including Daesh, YPG, PYD. It's very clear. We have confirmed evidence, with pictures, photos and videos."

Which, incidentally, should also not come a surprise in light of the May 2015 declassified Pentagon report, which claimed that ISIS was created as a Pentagon tool to overthrow Syria's president Assad.

Nevertheless, the "pot calling the kettle black" comes at a sensitive time for both the US and Turkey, which are both pivoting aggressively, one internally from Obama to Trump, while the other is shifting its foreign geopolitical allegiance from the US to Russia, which may also explain today's outburst by Erdogan.

Saying that the US have accused Turkey of supporting IS, speaking at a press conference on Tuesday the Turkish leader blamed the US-led coalition for assisting terrorists themselves. Apart from IS, he also mentioned Kurdish People's Protection Units in northern Syria (YPG) and Democratic Union Party (PYD) as groups supported by the coalition.

Earlier on Tuesday, Moscow accused Washington of "sponsoring terrorism" in Syria. Commenting on the latest National Defense Authorization Act signed into law by President Barack Obama, the Russian Foreign Ministry pointed out that the new bill "openly stipulates the possibility" of delivering more weapons to Syria, and added that those arms "will soon find their way to the jihadists," which Russia would view as a "hostile act."

Erdogan's comments echoed those from the Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan, who told RT that Washington appears unready to play a serious role in fighting Islamic State, as it has fostered terrorists itself and now wants them to remain in the Middle East.

“The Western coalition is of a formal nature, they have no real intention to fight neither in Syria nor in Iraq. We don’t see any readiness on their part to play a truly useful and meaningful role in fighting IS, because it’s them who have raised terrorists and they are interested in keeping them there,” Dehghan said.

According to the Iranian defense minister, Tehran has never coordinated its operations with the Americans and “will never collaborate with them.”

He then slammed the US' motives behind the "war on ISIS' saying that “maybe the coalition forces would like to see terrorists weakened, but certainly not destroyed, because those terrorists are their tool for destabilizing this region and some other parts of the world.”

One wonders how long before Putin is blamed for this latest political scandal, because if indeed Erdogan does provide proof of US support for the Islamic State, then the Pentagon will need a back story very fast, and what better scapegoat than the Russian president.

Good god.   I could have shown him my file documenting the same thing which includes videos of US troops giving armed guard to ISIS troops.  We've known this for years.

He forgot his son Bilal facilitating oil transport:

One of the main companies allegedly shipping oil from ISIS-controlled oilfields in Iraq is BMZ, which is owned by Bilal Erdogan, son of the Turkish president and whose major shareholders include other Erdogan family members – Mustafa Erdo?an and Ziya ?lgen. UK researchers show how the oil begins its journey in ISIS-controlled Iraq and enters Turkey via Kurdish-controlled Iraq: from there it ends up at the port of Ceyhan, where much of it is shipped overseas by BMZ. Then there is the matter of the alleged British connection…

Makes sense, Obama's Wife after all is a man.
Nothing but Lies from this administration, but what else does one expect from a President that has no past. BTW these are Obama's kids real parents...

pot has "confirmed evidence" that the kettle is black

It won't be the Pentagon needing a back story, it will be the State Dept/CIA. The pentagon knew this already and that is why they were giving the Russians intel behind the Presidents/CIA's back.

Also helps explain why all those CENTCOM Generals got canned ... 

nmewn's picture

Yep, just like bigkahuna says below, Erdogan would know...the initial arms came in through Turkey from Libya & Qatar. But as every German, Swede, Frenchman, Dutchman and Syrian refugee also knows all to well by now...

"At this point what difference does it make!?" ;-)

Will Trump send Obama to Guantanamo?

So no mention of him buying oil from ISIS months ago?

yeah, but they were escorted by American Humvees to the turkish border...LOLz.

Or arresting teachers and dissidents for speaking their minds. Obviously an absolutely unimpeachable source for whichever way the global wind is blowing up his skirt! 

Otherwise, that could be his-head-in-a-basket ;-)

Assad has the lawsuit for US war crimes in the Hague - for Trillions $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

with prosecution help from Eussia / Iran / Turkey /  with SA supplying data to avoid the liability as well

No he doesn't but that would be a nice thing to see.

If that was true, Syria would be a crater tomorrow

Yeah... Keep dreaming. Even if there ever was a case presented to the International Court what difference does it make? The US doesn't recognize it.  Besides it's already undermined itself and countries are withdrawing. ICC has lost it's legitimacy by being political hacks.

The importance of this is that the head of the state of Turkey is stating this publically given they are a significant regional power sat at the cross-roads of Asia, Europe and the Middle East and given their NATO bedevilled and their (past) allegiances and aspirations. 

Chalk up another point for Vlad. ( He must I've shred the pics of the Mark's Plumbing Ford F150).

Erdogan would know who is supporting isis.

Yes, sine he/Erdogen is a major partner in this crime!  An amazing turn of the table has occured within the past year.   Definitely a case of the Pot Calling the Kettle Black

Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey’s President

Of course he has evidence.  I'm sure the CIA paid for his assistance.  No honor amongst thieves?

Hmmmm... this won't bode well for the great one's "legacy".

His son was buying stolen oil from ISIS, whose side is he?

Manthong's picture

I guess the Turkeys are geniuses and never bought any stolen oil from murdering terrorists.


F me.

PrayingMantis's picture

... it looks quite supicious when Tyler puts "Confirmed Evidence" in quotes :) ... but we already know who supports ISIS ... just ask his son, Necmettin Bilal Erdogan ...

      ... Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan ... can't be trusted >

They're all in it up to their necks. I can't wait for the mudslinging to begin. Maybe someone will get excited and inadvertently give the game away that Israel did 9/11.

Hah! It'd be a beautiful sight to see 6 million kikes bite the dust in an instant. First time for everything eh?

After Omomjeans latest UN spectacle Mossad may end up planting a a tube of polonium butt lube in Reggie's apartment. Other than that this is very old news, yea the US supports Syrian over throw via Al CIAda. NEXT!

The presstitutes will bury the story as usual

fockewulf190's picture

Erdogan gets his cheap propaganda shot in while Obama is doing fuck all playing golf and Kerry is day-dreaming about yacht time.  Brilliant timing no?

Hope he knows that President Trump is not going to be played so easily. 

Meanwhile, the Lira is tanking hard, tourism income has all but disappeared, his post "coup" power grab forced the PC Euro-diplo-weenies to throw his ass under the Brussels bus, and he recently got body slammed big league on the international stage by Mr. Murphy when the Russian Ambassador was pumped full of lead and it all went viral inside of a few minutes.  So, the home crowd must some how, some way, be distracted by all the FUBARness going on.  This guys shit is in the wind.

musimann's picture

Russia gave Erdogan the heads up about his impending doom. The coup failed and now he is not so eager to be Obama's bitch. Doesn't mean he is a good guy but it is important that the world understands that ISIS is Obama's greatest accomplishment. No one will listen to me but with Erdgo saying it some more might understand. Putin has had to "correct" Erdogan a number of times. Putin is smart enough to use him as he can. It drives a stake in the heart of NATO's plans to use Turkey to spread war and chaos for Israel.....

deth's picture

Agreed. The importance of this declaration is that it is from a head of state (large megaphone); partner in crime notwithstanding.

Squid-puppets a-go-go's picture

Erdogan caling USA out on helping ISIS ?

Like, THE ERDOGAN who put his son in charge of selling the oil ISIS stole from iraq/syria

BWAAAHAHAHAHA what an asshat clown. I think the only thing we can read from this is an intended (or feigned - for diplomatic leverage) pivot to russia 

froze25's picture

Rats typically turn on eachother when the SHTF and everything starts getting exposed.

beemasters's picture

Yes, I think it's a good sign too. We need to get to the root of ISIS. It wouldn't have survived AND flourished without big powers behind it.

Luc X. Ifer's picture

The magic question is, why Erdogan started the blame game and fingerpointing with Obama?

beemasters's picture

Perhaps he's still holds a grudge for the CIA plot to overthrow him...but really, why would it matter as long as the worms are un-canned?

Manthong's picture

need to bring back vats of boiling oil as a punishment.

East Indian's picture

Because, after the assassination of the Russian ambassador, Erdogan fears for his life and that of his family members? 

Kayman's picture

All the dirty hands are in the Syrian pot.  Makes me wonder if Syrians and Iraqis rue the day they dreamed of "regime change".

Yuri Bezmenov's picture

Yes, deep state (CIA) is involved:

In 2013 Bilal Erdogan together with his brother Burak and certain Al-Qaeda affiliates (Sheik Yaseen Al Qadi and Osama Khoutb) were named in an investigation into an alleged corruption scandal.

Erdogan knows Al Qadi (9/11&PTech)

And Erdogan in 1990 with the Taliban and Al Qadi

Via MIT he trained ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service)
and Israël helped wounded ISIS 'jihadists'

sinbad2's picture

The Syrians did not dream of regime change, that dream was exclusively Jewish American.

I'm sure most do. In Libya they miss Ghadafi.

Yet another "report" which manages to "investigate" the Daesh stolen oil trade without making a single mention of the ultimate buyers/facilitators of that trade...

searching in vain for the word Israel in any of these "exposes," the careful reader finds a pattern of remarkable consistency - one that envelops our storyline with an impenetrable cloak of misdirections favorable only to those who control all of the medias("alt/default" - matters not a whit which brand of foolaid!)to such a degree that the audience in the end only gets to choose which sleight of hand they can be witness to!

While in reality, the majority of stolen oil ends up at the port of Ashdod - israel - neatly closing the chain between the Mossad-directed jihadis and the profits which the moneypower ALWAYS manages to extract from their foreign operations...

self-described "investigators" weave a web of duplicitous false trails which always seem to lead away from the proven trail by which ISRAELI middlemen, agents, and "diplomats" control the flow from DAESH/KRG/CEYHAN/ASHDOD/MALTA & points elsewhere.

And though the close working alliance between the two TERROR STATES has been fully documented over the past year, along with the functional takeover of Ankara's foreign and domestic policies by another, much more important tactical alliance between two "frenemies" - Srael and Russia - the complicit medias continue to drone on about minor elements in the ALIBABA OIL gangbang of IRAQ & SYRIA on behalf of the usual suspects.

Welcome to the world of the "new media" - same as the "old media." One Ring to Bind Them.
