CIA and Turkey Work Behind the Scenes for Wider War on Syria
October 20, 2012
The CIA is working closely with the government of Turkey behind the scenes to exacerbate the situation in Syria and create conditions for a regional war while U.S. officials and NATO publicly call for restraint.
“I can certainly assure you that our militaries, our military officers, are in contact,” Francis J. Ricciardone Jr. , the U.S. ambassador to Turkey, said on Tuesday. “This week I know there is a special focus of our military experts talking about Syria. And what militaries do well is plan for every contingency and every eventuality.”
