I reckon his house has a golden bathtub with an entire wall serving as surface for his mural wearing whatever Suleiman the Magnificent was wearing, while riding a white horse into battle.

 

Peeps like that have a "I Love Me I am So Great" house....

Surprise surprise what our friend is doing behind NATO's back:

 

Turkish military says MIT shipped weapons to al-Qaeda

 

Secret official documents about the searching of three trucks belonging to Turkey's national

intelligence service (MIT) have been leaked online, once again corroborating suspicions that

Ankara has not been playing a clean game in Syria. According to the authenticated documents,

the trucks were found to be transporting missiles, mortars and anti-aircraft ammunition. The

Gendarmerie General Command, which authored the reports, alleged, "The trucks were carrying

weapons and supplies to the al-Qaeda terror organization. But Turkish readers could not see the

documents in the news bulletins and newspapers that shared them, because the government

immediately obtained a court injunction banning all reporting about the affair.

When President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was prime minister, he had said, You cannot stop the MIT

truck . You cannot search it. You dont have the authority. These trucks were taking humanitarian

assistance to Turkmens.

Since then, Erdogan and his hand-picked new Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu have repeated at

every opportunity that the trucks were carrying assistance to Turkmens. Public prosecutor Aziz

Takci, who had ordered the trucks to be searched, was removed from his post and 13 soldiers

involved in the search were taken to court on charges of espionage. Their indictments call for

prison terms of up to 20 years.

In scores of documents leaked by a group of hackers, the Gendarmerie Command notes that

rocket warheads were found in the trucks' cargo.

According to the documents that circulated on the Internet before the ban came into effect, this

was the summary of the incident:

 

On Jan. 19, 2014, after receiving a tip that three trucks were carrying weapons and explosives

to al-Qaeda in Syria, the Adana Provincial Gendarmerie Command obtained search warrants.

The Adana prosecutor called for the search and seizure of all evidence.

Security forces stopped the trucks at the Ceyhan toll gates, where MIT personnel tried to

prevent the search.

While the trucks were being escorted to Seyhan Gendarmerie Command for an extensive

search, MIT personnel accompanying the trucks in an Audi vehicle blocked the road to stop

the trucks. When MIT personnel seized the keys from the trucks' ignitions, an altercation

ensued. MIT personnel instructed the truck drivers to pretend their trucks had malfunctioned

and committed physical violence against gendarmerie personnel.

The search was carried out and videotaped despite the efforts of the governor and MIT

personnel to prevent it.

Six metallic containers were found in the three trucks. In the first container, 25-30 missiles or

rockets and 10-15 crates loaded with ammunition were found. In the second container, 20-25

missiles or rockets, 20-25 crates of mortar ammunition and Douchka anti-aircraft ammunition

in five or six sacks were discovered. The boxes had markings in the Cyrillic alphabet.

It was noted that the MIT personnel swore at the prosecutor and denigrated the gendarmerie

soldiers doing the search, saying, "Look at those idiots. They are looking for ammunition with

picks and shovels. Let someone who knows do it. Trucks are full of bombs that might

explode.

The governor of Adana, Huseyin Avni Cos, arrived at the scene and declared, The trucks are

moving with the prime ministers orders and vowed not to let them be interfered with no

matter what.

With a letter of guarantee sent by the regional director of MIT, co-signed by the governor, the

trucks were handed back to MIT.

Driver Murat Kislakci said in his deposition, This cargo was loaded into our trucks from a

foreign airplane at Ankara Esenboga Airport. We are taking them to Reyhanli [on the Syrian

border]. Two men [MIT personnel] in the Audi are accompanying us. At Reyhanli, we hand

over the trucks to two people in the Audi. They check us into a hotel. The trucks move to

cross the border. We carried similar loads several times before. We were working for the

state. In Ankara, we were leaving our trucks at an MIT location. They used to tell us to come

back at 7 a.m. I know the cargo belongs to MIT. We were at ease; this was an affair of state.

This was the first time we collected cargo from the airport and for the first time we were

allowed to stand by our trucks during the loading."

After accusations of espionage by the government and pro-government media, the chief of

general staff ordered the military prosecutor to investigate,. On July 21, the military

prosecutor declared the operation was not espionage. The same prosecutor said this incident

was a military affair and should be investigated not by the public prosecutor, but the military.

The civilian court did not retract its decision.

 

 

The government cover-up

 

Though the scandal is tearing the country apart, the government opted for its favorite tactic of

covering it up. A court in Adana banned written, visual and Internet media outlets from any

reporting and commenting on the stopping of the trucks and the search. All online content about

the incident has been deleted.

The court case against the 13 gendarmerie elements accused of espionage has also been

controversial. The public prosecutor, who in his indictment said the accused were involved in a

plot to have Turkey tried at the International Criminal Court, veered off course. Without citing any

evidence, the indictment charged that there was collusion between the Syrian government, al-

Qaeda and the Islamic State (IS). The prosecutor deviated from the case at hand and charged

that the killing by IS of three people at Nigde last year was actually carried out by the Syrian

state.

At the moment, a total blackout prevails over revelations, which are bound to have serious

international repercussions.

Of course this has to be taken with a grain of salt, as the turkish army dislikes Erdogan.

MIT's main client is Jahbat but they also have dealings with ISIL. The Sultan wants to crush that pesky Alawite any way he can and he is pretty dependent on the Team Sunni money since the economy came under 'foreign attack'. All the gold dealing that they handled for Iran has gone poof.

I have a hypothetical question - why would a suicide bomber carry two bombs - one with grenade pin based detonator and other with remote initiated detonator ?

His friends can make sure one bomb at least goes kaboom in case the martyr for the jihad doubts his mission in the last moment and does not ignite his bomb. Or if the detonator malfunctions.

I understand two detonators - would even think that as SOP but the issue is regarding two disinct bombs

Aaah now I understand.

 

Well as Simon says, one bomb in a bag to drop at point A and allahu akbar and 72 virgins at point B would be my guess as well to spread more terror.

logical but bomb 2 detonated almost simultaneously with bomb 1 - co located
