As my mother used to say....every cloud has a silver lining. The recent failed coup, as scary as the scenario and potential outcomes were, has revealed how rife the so-called alternative media is with dysinfo agents. In numbers, they've come out of their closets, dutifully stepping up to the plate in order to provide Internet platforms for the CIA to spread disinformation. Fanciful tales aplenty...to hide the trail from the failed Turkish putsch....right back to Langley, Virginia.
The main back story they're providing is that the failed coup was staged by Erdogan so he could rid his government of enemies. Unfortunately, a few facts are getting in the way of a good story. Facts like this:
Turkish military attaché to Kuwait arrested in Saudi Arabia
Why was he arrested? Apparently, his name was on a list of names found by the Turkish government as part of their investigation into the would-be military junta that would have taken over from Erdogan. He was supposed to get a job in the new government. So the incompetent would-be coupmeisters had a list....which Erdogan's investigators found...and are using to make arrests.
It's not only Erdogan who is purging his ranks. The true alternative media are also purging their blogrolls. It's absolutely amazing how many disinfo agents are out there hiding in the weeds. Nobody has a license or franchise for the truth, as I've frequently said. Many of us can and are wrong from time to time. But the Turkish coup is one of those scenarios that's so transparent that it makes fools out of supporters that "Erdogan did it". They're violating rules of common sense and logic...two primary tools of truth.
