A False flag (or black flag) is a covert military or paramilitary operation staged by a country against itself. It's done in a way that intentionally deceives people into believing the attack was carried out by other entities, groups or nations.
A leaked audio tape has allegedly caught Turkish officials red-handed plotting a false flag attack. They are heard scheming a staged provocation against itself and blaming it on Syria.
This false flag attack would then be used as a precursor for a military invasion and war against Syria. On the tape, the high-ranking officials are heard conspiring to attack the Suleiman Shah Tomb.
The tomb is in Syria but is considered Turkish territory, and it's guarded by Turkish special forces. On the tape, it's also discussed that Al-Qaeda terrorists would play the role of patsies.
The audio tape was posted to Youtube on March 27, and contains an English translation of the alleged recorded conversation. The tape is said to be a discussion between Turkish Foreign Minister, Chief of Intelligence, Deputy Chief of General Staff, and Undersecretary of Foreign Affairs.
In their conversation, they discuss massive military aid to jihadist terrorists in Syria, black ops, and war plans to invade Syria, as well as the general disarray in Erdogan's Islamic dictatorship.
The Washington Post reports the translation was done by "a veteran translator who asked that his name be withheld for fear of retribution." The International Business Times (IBT) has a full transcript of the conversation which can be read by clicking here.
The leaked call gives us an inside look at Erdogan's thoughts about an attack on Syria. He said the attack, "must be seen as an opportunity for us [Turkey]". The following paragraphs are an from the transcript on the IBT website.
Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu:
Prime Minister said that in current conjuncture, this attack (on Suleiman Shah Tomb) must be seen as an opportunity for us.
National Intelligence Chief Hakan Fidan:
“I’ll send 4 men from Syria, if that’s what it takes. I’ll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey; we can also prepare an attack on Suleiman Shah Tomb if necessary.”
Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu:
“Our national security has become a common, cheap domestic policy outfit.”
Deputy Chief of Staff of the military Yasar Guler:
“It’s a direct cause of war. I mean, what we’re going to do is a direct cause of war.”
After the conversation was leaked Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's banned YouTube in Turkey. Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu has stated he wanted the video removed from Youtube's website.
Last Thursday in an apparent admission, that lends authenticity to the tape, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described the leaking of the recording of top security officials discussing military operations in Syria as: “villainous" and immoral."

Christianity Examiner Commentary
False flag operations are nothing new, one of the first to stage a provocation against his own country was Nero. History tells us the following:
The Roman consul and historian Cassius Dio, his contemporary Suetonius and others say that Emperor Nero was responsible for the Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD. Nero is said to have had one-third of the city torched as an excuse to build Domus Aurea, a 300 acre palatial complex that included a towering statue of himself, the Colossus of Nero.
Before the fire the Roman Senate rejected the emperor’s attempts to level a third of Rome to make way for a “Neropolis,” which was an urban renewal project.
The Roman historian Tacitus wrote when the citizens of Rome looked to Nero as the one responsible for the fire, he put the blame on Christians for starting the fire, he said they hated the human race.
Early last century we have events like the The Reichstag Fire in 1933 and in 1939 there was The Gleiwitz Incident, carried out by Hitler both of these events were false flag operations. Gestapo Reich Marshal Hermann Göring later admitted that:
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
During Kennedy's presidency General Lyman Lemnitzer, requested a "green-light" for Operation Northwoods which targeted American citizens. When America's covert war sought to topple the communist regime in Cuba all the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff unanimously favored state-sponsored acts of terrorism against Americans inside the United States.
The plan was said to include things like shooting down hijacked U.S. airplanes, sinking of U.S. ships, and shooting Americans on the streets of Washington, D.C. The heinous plan included staging a NASA disaster that would kill astronaut John Glenn.
After the botched and embarrassing failure of the CIA's Bay of Pigs invasion, depraved U.S. military leaders brought the Operation Northwoods plan to Kennedy who rejected it in 1962. The president also denied Lemnitzer a second term as our nation's highest ranking military leader.
What kind of depravity and blackness is in a man's heart who would lead staged provocations against their own country to further their evil agenda?
Romans 2:5 says, "But no, you won’t listen; and so you are saving up terrible punishment for yourselves because of your stubbornness in refusing to turn from your sin; for there is going to come a day of wrath when God will be the just Judge of all the world" (TLB).
Jeremiah 17:9 says, "The heart is the most deceitful thing there is and desperately wicked. No one can really know how bad it is" (TLB).
Proverbs 6:18 says, "For there are six things the Lord hates—no, seven: haughtiness, lying, murdering, plotting evil, eagerness to do wrong, a false witness, sowing discord among brothers (TLB).
It's very plain to see from the Bible that God has plenty to say about the condition of men's hearts. The verse from Proverbs covers all the sins that seem to be in the hearts of those plotting false flag attacks. Unless those who commit such acts repent they will eventually one day stand before God and be judged for their actions.
