TURKEY’S DRIFT TO UNCHARTED WATERS

In March 2015, Erdogan and his supporters in the Judiciary acquitted all Balyoz suspects after the appointed prosecutor’s arguments of fake evidence in the file. Erdogan’s intervention in the Balyoz case was related to his efforts to forge a coalition with the ultra-nationalists, also known as Perincek group. Perincek’s statements at a press conference in Iran, over massive purges in the Military, is a confession of the arbitrary dismissals: “Turkey goes through a surgical operation. NATO’s tumor is being removed from the country’s body through mass arrests and dismissals in the Military.” 

15 Temmuz’un Arka Planı

Birileri 15 Temmuz’la ilgili tuhaflıkların irdelenmesinden son derece rahatsız oluyorlar. Tüm açıklama ve yorumlama hakkını tekellerinde tutmak istiyorlar. Sorgulamada ileri gidenleri tehditle, itibar kıyımıyla, kolluk ve yargı erkiyle yıldırmaya çalışıyorlar. Toplumumuzun ‘bilmeyen, bilmediğini de bilmeyen, ancak bildiğini zanneden’ bireylerden oluşan bir ‘kalabalık’ haline dönüşmesi için ellerinden geleni yapıyorlar. Buna rağmen, Cumhuriyet tarihimizdeki darbelerin hiçbirine benzemeyen 15 Temmuz’daki olayların aslında göründüğü gibi olmadığı ve arka plandaki gerçeklerin gizlenmeye çalışıldığı yönündeki kanılar yurtiçinde ve yurtdışında giderek yaygınlaşıyor.

SADAT’s 15th of July Document and Its Evaluation

In the document prepared by SADAT, instead of giving satisfactory and clear answers to the serious and tangible suspicions about the corporation that have been brought up to the agenda for the last 5 years, people who claim the allegations are accused, plenty of logos, picture and slogan have been used, Erdogan and his government have been advertised with “inside the activities” approach. The overall document was prepared with a focus to win tenders and leave word with the government. It seems more like a political party brochure.
