Obama's Nuclear Crisis With Turkey Goes Unreported in US

How rotten is American journalism? In fact it has reached rock bottom.

Go to the home page of The New York Times and The Washington Post and do a word search using "Turkey." I came up with ... nothing.

Now consider the following August 18, 2016 DEBKAfile news story entitled "Rushed evacuation of US nukes from Incirlik," concerning the secret shipment of nuclear weapons from Turkey's Incirlik air base to US facilities in Romania:

"DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that Washington decided to remove the nuclear arsenal to safety after talks between American and Turkish talks on release 1,500 US airmen serving at the base from the siege clamped down a month ago broke down. The airmen were running the US air campaign against ISIS in in Syria just 112km away.

The talks ground to a halt over Turkish insistence on assuming control of the nuclear arsenal and America’s rejection of this demand.

The 50-70 B61 tactical gravity nuclear bombs were stored in underground bunkers close to the US bombers’ air strips. Although this was not fully admitted by Washington, the US air and ground crews were held intermittently in lockdown since the President Tayyip Erdogan suppressed a military coup against him a month ago.

The deteriorations of relations between Ankara and Washington contrasted strongly with the Turkish-Russian rapprochement, which Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin sealed in St. Petersburg on Aug.8. Since then, there have been calls for the Russian Air Force to be allowed to displace the US warplanes at Incirlik. This process has now begun."

Yes, that's right, "Holy atomic pile, Batman!"

Back in 2012 Obama declared Erdogan to be one of his five best overseas friends in 2012. Care to reconsider your bullshit selection of buddies, Barry?


  1. There is no news reporting in America anymore - only DNC talking points.

    I read about Turkey-Incirlik here:

    (the nukes being moved to Romania is speculative...)

    fundamental transformation of America? Year 8 right on track...


    "A new report by the Media Research Center shows that network evening and morning news shows gave six times as much coverage to the possible lies of Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte than the revelation that the Obama administration may have made a $400 million dollar payment to Iran in exchange for the release of prisoners, something the White House had previously denied.
    According to the report, ABC, NBC and CBS dedicated more than 30 minutes of total airtime Thursday night and Friday morning to reports that Lochte...
    The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that the $400 million payment to Iran was held until Iran freed four U.S. prisoners it was holding. Obama administration critics used this information to accuse the president of paying the $400 million fee as a ransom. ...
    That story generated less than four minutes of total coverage on those same shows. ..."

    Also, the news that EVERY mainstream media and almost everyone online completely ignores is the deep Christian faith of many American Olympians. I noticed the deletions with coverage of Simone Biles and Brianna Rollins, but here is surprise gold medalist Helen Maroulis:

    "On Thursday, Maroulis became the first American woman to win an Olympic gold medal in wrestling, overcoming the obstacles of wrestling in a different weight class than she usually did and facing a repeat gold medal winner.

    Maroulis was overwhelmed as she stood on the podium to wear her medal and see her nation’s flag saluted.

    “I looked at that flag and I’m like, ‘The American flag represents our country and it stands for so much,’” Maroulis said. “I have this gold medal, but I’m also thinking there are Americans in other countries at war and there’s flags there. It’s just such an honor to be an American, it’s such a blessing. When the anthem plays, how could you not cry?” she said.

    In the wake of her victory, she posted a message to the world on Instagram.

    “Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness” psalm 115:1 #christisinmeiamenough,” she posted. ..."

    Still nothing on those nukes at Incirlik, but plenty more on Ryan Lochte pulling a "Hillary" - spinning lies for the bread and circus media...while Peter Beinart is trying to paint the new Democratic Party as "conservative", which I guess includes the climate change faction calling for voluntary non-procreation in industrialized countries...

    It may be too late for Amerika: forty years of brainwashing instead of education in public schools seems to have worked.

    Good luck to the rest of world! May you all become the next Venezuela, except PETA will still stop you from shooting a horse ( or a rat) for food!

    cynicism giving way to despair on a daily basis...


    "Update: Report on U.S. Moving Nukes from Turkey Suspect"

    as usual, best comment thread...from the 'centrist' serious The American Interest.

    otherwise, crickets chirping about Ryan Lochte's white privilege.

  4. I predict that Ryan Lochte has a future in politics-perhaps as an advisor to Hillary.
    "apologizes for not being more careful and candid"
    Dude,you flat out lied,just as brazenly as she does.
