Back in May of 2013, President Obama met with the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the White House, and they decided to get rid of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, either diplomatically or militarily.
In the Turkish paper, “Sunday’s Zaman”, journalist Mahir Zeynalov writes about the meeting. The discussion was about Syria and both believed that Assad should step down by one of two ways. The first was to negotiate with Assad to relinquish power while preserving the ore structure of the state.
If this didn't work, the Obama administration had a second idea. Obama suggested the possible use of chemical weapons by forces loyal to the Syrian regime may occur. If that happened, it would be seen it as a red line for U.S. intervention. Even the journalist thought this was a bizarre idea. Zeynalov writes, if “Washington has no intention to intervene, why would it then mention the use of chemical weapons in Syria only to face pressure to act?”
He’s right. Why mention the use of weapons unless Obama knew it was a possibility. Zeynalov quoted Erdogan as later saying that "the most tangible outcome" of the Obama meeting is an agreement on Syria that Assad will go.
Three months later, on August 21 it was announced that Assad had used chemical weapons on his own people, but at this writing, nothing is proven.
The relationship between Obama and Erdogan has been close over the last year. Both were involved in the illegal trafficking of weapons from the CIA compound in Benghazi, Libya, through Turkey and into the hands of the Syrian rebels.
In March 2011 Stevens became the official U.S. liaison to the al-Qaeda-linked Libyan opposition, working directly with Abdelhakim Belhadj of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group , an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. In November 2011, Belhadj, acting as head of the Tripoli Military Council, "met with Free Syrian Army [FSA] leaders in Istanbul and on the border with Turkey" in an effort by the new Libyan government to provide money and weapons to the growing insurgency in Syria..
Through shipping records, Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge confirmed that the Libyan-flagged vessel Al Entisar, translated "The Victory," was received in the Turkish port of Iskenderun, 35 miles from the Syrian border, on Sept. 6, 2012, just five days before 4 Americans were killed by more than 100 Islamist militants.
On the night of Sept. 11, in what would become his last known public meeting, Stevens met with the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin, and escorted him out of the consulate front gate one hour before the assault began at approximately 9:35 p.m. local time.
Of course, Turkey had to know about the attack on our consulate. When Ali Sait Akin left the compound, he safely walked past more than 100 armed fighters who were waiting to attack the compound. He was not hurt nor did he think to warn anyone.
Why is Obama and Erdogan now planning to takeover Syria? Are the Syrian rebels, most of whom are alQaeda, using the weapons from Libya? I’ll examine that in my next article.
