War on Syria Cover-Up Update: Who is Breaking the Blackout?

The War on Syria Secret Operation Base Gets a Bit More Exposure

syria18 days ago, on November 21, here at Boiling Frogs Post, I reported on the ongoing joint US-NATO secret training camp in the US air force base in Incirlik, Turkey, which began operations in April- May 2011 to organize and expand the dissident base in Syria. I had received the information for that story from multiple sources including highly credible insiders in Turkey and government insiders here in the US. You can read the story here.

My follow up piece on December 3 included the intentional blackout of this multiple-sourced and well-documented exposé. Here are a few excerpts from that story:

I immediately started checking our infamous US mainstream media sites- still nothing on this significant information. I then contacted one of my high-level sources and asked why he had come to me with his documented report instead of going directly to the big guys. With several credible insiders as his corroborators and a high-level official in Turkey, he would have no problem getting their attention. And his response? Well here it is minus a few expletives:

Who said we didn’t go to MSM first? We got them the info back in October. First they were interested and drooling. At least the reporters. Then, they disappeared. We sat and waited for a few weeks, and no one followed up. It is Turkey. It is NATO. It is our CIA guys. The media hot shots would not touch those cases without State Department sanction attached…

Now, 18 days later, there comes a decent coverage of this exposé. Guess where? Not in the US mainstream media. Not even the US alternative media…Well, here it is, Iran’s Press TV providing accurate and untwisted coverage, and doing so as part of its front page news:

A former employee with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has said that American and NATO forces are training Syrian rebels in southeastern Turkish city of Hakkari. Sibel Edmonds also said that she had received information from Turkish and US sources indicating that training Syrian opposition forces, led by defected Syrian colonel Riad al-Assad, had started in May, the Turkish daily Milliyet reported. Edmonds further added that the US is involved in smuggling arms into Syria from Incirlik military base in Turkey in addition to providing financial support for Syrian rebels…

Confessions by a number of Syrian rebels about foreign-sponsored plans to carry out armed operations and killing ordinary people as well as security forces prove that recent developments in the country are part of an attempt to incite a revolt in the strategic country neighboring the Israeli regime, aiming to overthrow the current government and replace it with a US-backed regime... Damascus blames the violence on foreign-sponsored terrorist groups, with the Syrian state TV broadcasting reports showing seized weapons caches and confessions by terrorists describing how they obtained arms from foreign sources.

So, let’s review. Turkish media, right from the involved region, and after checking with their own sources, have picked up my exposé based on several highly credible sources in Turkey-US. We are not talking blogs or alternatives in Turkey. We are talking mainstream media over there. And this, despite similar censorship pressures there due to the Turkish government’s intense desire to keep its partnership in this deal a ‘secret.’

After Turkish media and Iran’s Press TV, several other international news organizations are reporting on this very significant story; see a few examples here and here.

Now, what do we have here in the US? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Again we are not talking MSM only. Included in this are all those quasi alternatives supported by the corporate and corporate foundation sugar daddies. You see that the New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times have no balls, no guts, to pursue a solid story brought to them by credible military sources here and abroad. Now, even after getting a deflector by the international media taking the lead, they are sitting, shivering, and continuing the blackout.

Since my story here at Boiling Frogs Post I have been contacted by additional credible sources, including a former high-level military official in Syria. I will have more, and will continue the coverage. And I will provide our readers with more specifics on the US media and reporters who’ve been sitting on this story for several months. Please stay tuned.

  1. Nice job, Sibel. Now we have to get more people exposed to BFP, so that this kind of expose can be less and less ignored.

  2. Congratulations Sibel! Your dedication to finding the truth is paying off – at least internationally. Like Xicha I think that it will be more and more difficult to ignore this expose. We’ll spread the word – people to people. Thanks!

  3. @Dennis: Thank you, and I owe you an e-mail; got your confidence-building sincere note. This weekend.

    @ Xicha: And I owe you ‘a few’; again, this weekend:-)This was a roller-coaster week for me.
    In the next few days I will introduce to you our new ‘everything Syria’ expert, insider, and his writings. I hope!

  4. Watching Barabara ‘Wawa’s interview with Assad on Nightline the other night, I noted that when it came to the subject of outside military assistance and stoking of the opposition, Assad had apparently broached these matters, but we didn’t get to hear it in his own words in the interview, but rather in Wawa’a summary recounting with a tone of indignation that he could suggest such a thing.

    The media is truly an integral part of the Military-Industrial Complex. They don’t call them “embedded” for nothing – they are whores.

  5. It took some searching, but here’s the “full” Assad interview.


    But note the apparent edit at @10 mins., right as he was talking about the terrorists – so I question how “full” this interview is.
