- Obama meeting with Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas: Obama’s announcement of the Gaza situation as “unsustainable” and that he is waiting for “findings” from an unknown source related to the Freedom Flotilla incident are in response to advice he received that Israel would be able to supply proof that nuclear material was on the ships Israel attacked and that known terrorists, able to give substantial support to operations against Israel were on the convoy. Sources within the US military are highly critical of the president, stating “He wouldn’t know a dirty bomb if it was stuck up his XXX,” a criticism of President Obama’s experience in the defense sector. “U.S. sensors could would have spotted any movement of nuclear material long before it got to Turkey, much less allowing it to be loaded on ships.” Grade A
- The Gaza convoy had over a dozen agents of Turkish intelligence onboard who carefully coordinated efforts with Israel. Grade A
- The Turkish agents may have been involved in efforts to provoke a violent confrontation with Israel. Grade C
- The Turkish government has no plans to mount a strong diplomatic offensive against Israel. Ties between the Turkish army and Israel are extremely strong. Additionally, Turkish and Israeli intelligence services have decades of cooperation in sharing intelligence and marketing American military secrets: Grade A
- Israeli forces firing on the Flotilla, wounding passengers before the initial landing was unintentional, thus Israel was “caught with their pants down” when it became necessary to handle the press. Thus the faked audio tapes and edited films which, though having a good effect on public perceptions in the US, undermined the credibility of Israel’s promised intelligence briefing to President Obama. Thus, today’s statement on Gaza is meant to cover Obama’s behind after looking weak at in his response and at the UN. Grade B
