Meet Fethullah Gulen(CIA), Deep State Plotter
- Meet Fethullah Gulen, Deep State Plotter
by James Corbett, TheInternationalForecaster.com
Since the failed coup attempt in Turkey on July 15th, the name of exiled Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen is on everyone’s lips.
Not only is President Erdogan pointing the finger at Gulen as the mastermind of the coup, so is General Hulusi Akar, the Chief of Staff of Turkey’s Armed Forces and the country’s top ranking general. In testimony to prosecutors in Ankara earlier this week he stated that while he was being held captive by pro-coup soldiers he was asked to speak to Gulen, who he described as their “opinion leader,” but he refused.
“I believe those coup-plotters are members of [Gulen’s] organization,” Akar said. “I think they thought their organization would take a huge blow after our Supreme Military Council meeting in August — which we prepared for studiously. This terror organization probably foresaw the outcome of the upcoming meeting and attempted a coup by bombing the parliament building and security offices, killing civilians, attacking their own brothers-in-arms and units with a ferocity and dishonor never seen before.”
So who is Fethullah Gulen? Well, that depends who you ask. If you ask the well-coiffed liars of the corporate lapdog media, Gulen is a kindly old reclusive imam who is operating a multi-billion dollar global Islamic school network from his compound fortress in Pennsylvania…for some reason or other.
Also relevant: the testimony of Osman Nuri Gündeş. He was the former head of Turkey’s intelligence agency, MIT, and served as the chief intelligence adviser to Prime Minister Tansu Çiller in the 90s. In his biography, published in 2011, he claims that in the mid-1990s the Gulen network was sending CIA agents to Central Asia under cover as “English teachers” for their madrasas in the region. According to Gündeş, Gulen sheltered 130 CIA agents this way at its schools in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan alone.
Another relevant dot on the trail involves Necip Hablemitoglu of Ankara University, who made headlines in January 2001 for writing a report that was submitted in an Ankara courtroom where a hearing on Gulen was taking place. The report, entitled “Operation Agents – Infiltration Spies and Fethullah-ists,” claimed that Gulen “voluntarily worked as an agent for the CIA and lived under the protection of the FBI in the state of Pennsylvania, on a private estate designed for him.” Dr. Hablemitoglu was assassinated in 2002 in a case that remains unsolved.
