Bellngcat is fanatically anti-Putin. If Bellingcat provided the transcripts of these damning conversations, it is certainly not because it has suddenly become anti-NATO and pro-Putin. If Erdogan now paints himself as a rebel against NATO, remember that Bellingcat provided the pretext – RB

Former NATO commander ‘behind failed coup against Erdogan,’ Turkish daily
RT.com, Jul 25 2016
The former commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, retired Pindosi Army General J F Campbell, was the mastermind behind the failed military coup in Turkey, the Yeni Safak daily has reported, citing sources close to investigation. Gen J F Campbell, 59, was “one of the top figures who organized and managed the soldiers behind the failed coup attempt in Turkey,” the conservative paper’s English-language edition said on Monday. The paper is known for its loyal support of Erdogan. According to Yeni Safak, Campbell “also managed more than $2b in transactions via UBA Bank in Nigeria by using CIA links to distribute among the pro-coup military personnel in Turkey.” Campbell had allegedly paid “at least two secret visits” to Turkey since May up to the attempted coup, which the Turkish authorities blamed on what they call the Fethullah Terrorist Organization (FETO). Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned on Monday that ties with Faschingstein could suffer unless they extradite Fethullah Gulen. Faschingstein has repeatedly said that Turkey must provide solid evidence of any links Gulen might have to the attempted coup before any possible extradition process is discussed. The Turkish daily reported that Campbell had top secret meetings at the Erzurum military base and Incirlik air base in Turkey, adding that the Pindo general “directed the process of trending/ blacklisting the military officers in the base.” According to the paper:
Millions of dollars of money has been transferred from Nigeria to Turkey by a group of CIA personnel. The money, which has been distributed to an 80-person special team of the CIA, was used to convince pro-coup generals. After taking money from their bank accounts, the CIA team hand-delivered it to the terrorists under the military dresses.
The Turkish government and President Erdogan are using this as a pretext to put pressure on Pindostan in an effort to get Gulan extradited, the founder and director of the Centre for Turkey Studies and Development in London, Ibrahim Dogus, told RT.
President Erdogan has been trying very hard to hunt down [anyone] linked, loyal or associated with Gulen at this moment in Turkey.
Washington later dismissed accusations that Campbell was the mastermind behind the coup, with White House press secretary Josh Earnest calling the allegations against the general unsubstantiated. A total of 13,165 people have been detained in connection with the foiled coup attempt in Turkey, Erdogan said on Sunday. He mentioned that 8,838 of those arrested are soldiers, 2,101 are judges and prosecutors, 1,485 are police officers, 52 are local authorities and 689 are civilians, as reported by Hurriyet. He added that 934 schools, 109 dormitories, 15 universities, 104 foundations, 35 health institutions, 1,125 associations and 19 unions were closed as they belonged to what he described as “the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization.” A joint indictment of 73 suspects, including Gulen, was approved by an Ankara court on Saturday. During a speech to the Turkish parliament, Erdogan called Gulen, his former ally, a “dishonest traitor.” Branding FETO “a virus that has metastasized,” Erdogan said last week:
The FETO terror group, who are abusing people’s tax money to purchase guns, tanks, warplanes, heavy weapons and use against the nation, are rascals, traitors and dishonest.
On Monday, the Turkish government issued detention warrants for over 40 journalists suspected of having links to the failed military coup, NTV reported. Amnesty International sounded the alarm on Sunday, saying it gathered “credible evidence” that people arrested in relation to the failed coup attempt have been “subjected to beatings and torture, including rape, in official and unofficial detention centers in the country.” Amnesty International’s Europe director, John Dalhuisen, said:
Reports of abuse including beatings and rape in detention are extremely alarming, especially given the scale of detentions that we have seen in the past week. The grim details that we have documented are just a snapshot of the abuses that might be happening in places of detention.
Pindosi Commander Campbell: The man behind the failed coup in Turkey
Yeni Şafak, Jul 25 2016
A former ISAF commander was the organizer of the July 15 military coup attempt in Turkey, sources said. Gen J F Campbell was one of the top figures who organized and managed the soldiers behind the failed coup attempt in Turkey, sources close to ongoing legal process of pro-coup detainees said. Campbell also managed more than $2b money transactions via UBA Bank in Nigeria by using CIA links to distribute among the pro-coup military personnel in Turkey. The ongoing investigation unveiled that Campbell had paid at least two secret visits to Turkey since May, until the day of the coup attempt. The coup plot that was foiled by the comprehensive effort of the Turkish nation, including its citizens, politicians, media and police forces, was organized by the Fethullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) led-by so-called cleric Fethullah Gülen who has been living in self-exile in Pindostan for several years. Pindostani Intelligence, Military and other institutions are accused of supporting the FETO leader Gülen and his gangs for the military coup. Military sources said Campbell, who was the commander of ISAF between Aug 26 2014 and May 1 2016, had made some top secret meetings in Erzurum military base and Adana İnicrlik Airbase, which has been used by the Pindo Military for conducting the anti-Daesh campaign in Syria. Military sources said that Campbell was the man, who directed the process of trending/ blacklisting the military officers in the base. If the coup attempt was successful, Campbell would visit Turkey in a short time, according to the sources. The Nigeria branch of the United Bank of Africa (UBA) was the main base for the last six-months of money transactions for the coup plotters. Millions of dollars of money has been transferred from Nigeria to Turkey by a group of CIA personnel. The money, which has been distributed to an 80-person special team of the CIA, was used to convince pro-coup generals. More than $2b were distributed during the process leading to the coup. After taking money from their bank accounts, the CIA team hand delivered it to the terrorists under the military dresses. The sources said that some familiar figures in the eastern and south-eastern part of the country had taken active roles during the process, while the members of the Gülenist gang have been used in central and eastern region. All officers who command a group of soldiers in a patrol station, unit, company, regiment, brigade, division, corps, or army were kept in close surveillance. In 2015, the pro-Gülenist officers in the İncirlik base established an investigation desk. They drew the map of all soldiers under their command. They investigated the soldiers’ trends, their personalities and family background. Commenting on how long it might take Pindo boxtops to review the documents, John Bass, the Pindo ambassador to Turkey, told a group of reporters at the Pindo consulate general in Istanbul Wednesday:
It will depend on the scope and quality of evidence that is provided and how compelling that is. But I can assure you that we are committed to reviewing quickly as soon as we receive materials. It will be a very high priority for the Pindosi Dept of Justice.
Bass declined to comment on the future of Turco-Pindosi relations if Washington does not hand Gulen back to Ankara, saying only:
The Pindosi government is focused on what we can do together between two countries to help Turkey pursue this investigation.
Bass also raised concerns about Ankara’s steps to dismiss tens of thousands of public employees in the military, police, education sector, and civil service, saying:
We see mass arrest or detentions and mass firings of people from positions of employment in a very rapid period time without a lot of evidence having been presented for those actions, that creates concerns.
On how the thwarted coup affected operations against Daesh from Incirlik Air Base in Adana, southern Turkey, Bass said that there is still no electricity at the base. He said the Turkish government cut electricity at all air bases in response to the coup attempt, saying:
The longer it continues, the more impact it will have on operations, which is not to benefit either Turkey or Pindostan or the other countries that are threatened by Da’esh terrorism.
The defense ministers of Turkey and Pindostan also discussed over the telephone the situation at Incirlik Air Base on Tuesday. Turkish authorities have said coup plotters used the air base as main station for the takeover attempt. Air refuelling tankers used in the coup were launched from the base, where 3,000 Pindo troops and Pino aircraft are stationed in anti-Da’esh operations. All soldiers were categorized in three groups: opponents, neutrals, and supporters. A commander from the smallest patrol station to all military units had been blacklisted under the process. Soldiers who were marked as opponents to the junta, was debarred from the “financial support.” The military personnel who were in a neutral position received a difference in the amount of money, according to the importance of their position and ranks. The money transactions were started in Mar 2015 through the commissioned “courier.” The supports who also were categorized as “those who will move with us,” were provided a huge amount of money. All soldiers and officers in this category were considered as the devoted members of the FETO terror group. A bag with a large amount of money was found in the room of Brig-Gen Mehmet Dişli, one of the top military officials detained for leading the coup attempt.
Turkey urges Pindostan to prevent Gülen from dodging laws
Yeni Şafak, Jul 25 2016
An Erdoğan spox on Sunday laid out a case for the extradition of Fetullah Gülen to face charges that he orchestrated an attempted overthrow of the government in Ankara. Ibrahim Kalin urged Pindostan to not allow Gülen to “exploit its laws to avoid facing a fair and legitimate accounting in Turkey,” in an opinion piece published in the NYT. Kalin wrote that mounting evidence has surfaced that points to Gülen leading the attempt, noting that the coup “was planned and staged by his followers within the army.” Several generals and officers involved have confessed to having links to Gülen. Levent Turkkan, aide-de-camp to the chief of staff for the Turkish armed forces, Gen Hulusi Akar, admitted that he was a member of the Gulen organization and joined the coup on order from his superiors within the group, according to Kalin. Akar reportedly told prosecutors that the coup plotters urged him to speak to Gülen, who lives in the state of Pennsylvania, to persuade him to join the overthrow attempt. Kalin said:
Pindostan should extradite Fethullah Gülen, a Turkish citizen, to Turkey, as is allowed under an existing treaty. Turkey has already provided a number of legal documents to Pindostani authorities and will send more as further evidence is collected.
Pindo boxtops announced last week receipt of extradition documents for Gülen, following the coup attempt that killed more than 240 people and wounded more than 2,000 others. The Justice Dept is reviewing the papers, according to the White House.
Pindostan knows Gülen behind failed coup: Turkish minister
Yeni Şafak, Jul 25 2016
Pindostan knows the Jul 15 coup attempt in Turkey was made by Pennsylvania-based preacher Fetullah Gülen, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ said Sunday. In remarks made to a Turkish television channel Kanal 7, Bozdağ said:
I am sure that President Obama, the Pindo intelligence and Sec State know this coup was made by Fetullah Gülen. I am very sure they don’t have any hesitation about this. They will also face great difficulties in relations between Turkey and Pindostan if the Pindosi government continues to keep Fetullah Gülen in Pindostan after the coup attempt. The Pindo government does not have any justification in defending and keeping Fetullah Gulen in Pindostan. There is no obstacle in international law to the extradition of Gülen to Turkey.
Separately, Bozdağ said he would be in Pindostan with Turkish Interior Minister Efkan Ala to discuss the extradition issue. He recalled the fact that Turkey had sent four files to the Pindo authorities on Tuesday regarding the preacher’s extradition. The Turkish government has repeatedly said the deadly plot on Jul 15, which martyred at least 246 people and injured more than 2,100 others, was organized by followers of Gülen, who is also accused of a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary, forming what is commonly known as the “parallel state.”
