Thousands of emails have been released by WikiLeaks that came from Turkish minister Berat Albayrak, the son-in-law of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which proves links between Albayrak and deals he had with ISIS-controlled oil fields.

The cache of emails were released on Monday and demonstrates his insider knowledge of Powertrans. Powertrans has a complete monopoly of Iraqi Kurdistan’s roads and rail system into Turkey, and Albayrak has denied in the past that he has any connections to Powertrans. Powertrans have consistently been accused of facilitating ISIS blood-oil from reaching the fields in Iraq to Turkey.

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, justified the email release because of Erdogan’s crackdown on free media.

“The people of Turkey need a free media and a free internet,” Mr Assange said.

‘The government’s counter-coup efforts have gone well beyond their stated purpose of protecting the state… and are now primarily used to steal assets and eliminate critics.

“This consolidation around the power vertical of Recep Tayyip Erdogan ultimately weakens Turkish institutionalism, leaving Turkey more susceptible to future coups by those in Erdogan’s chain of command.”

Many believe that Erdogan is grooming Albayrak to be his successor.

The released data give further credibility to open secrets.

Credibility wasn’t questioned before and we weren’t at open-secrets level as there were many hard-evidences for a while. It just adds weight to the accusations as these mails are nothing else than a confession.
If some had doubts about what Turkey is doing…

Absolutely, but now we have touchable/readable data from a source that is not party to the war. That is a different quality.

To me “open secret” – is when they can still point the finger and say – propaganda of the other side. Some will believe them. Men tend to subtract from extreme news. Even if they are right. If You understand German: Rainer Mausfeld: „Warum schweigen die Lämmer?“ @ youtube. How propaganda keeps ppl quiet/stupid.

Nice with some confirmation for the slowlearners and deniers.

Im like Daler. More should be much more open all the time, so dishonest people can be found and replaced.

Yes absolutely. Confirmation that does not come from war party paid NGOs or owned media. Confirmation from a crowd funded independent side. Confirmation that exposes and discredits paid “deniers”.

The US Neo Liberals ( Zio Nazis) will of course declare that all of this is ‘fake news ‘ and declare that ‘there is nothing to see here, time to move on’.
