Media Blackout! 1500 US Military Being Held Hostage In Turkey!

Friday, July 22, 2016 5:35   (Before It’s News)

Mainstream media is neglecting to report on what is surely Obama’s biggest act of treason yet! Turkey has committed an act of war against the USA and President Barack Obama and the Pentagon are doing absolutely nothing about it. The Incirlik US Military Base in Turkey has been under seige by Turkish police and military since the coup against Recep Erdogan last Saturday.  Power to the base has been cut and no one is being allowed to enter or leave. This story is being reported on by Rick Wiles ofTrunews.com and also by Debka File. Sadly the news team at Infowars has also chosen to ignore this monumental failure of the White House and the Pentagon to protect their own military people from an act of aggression by a Muslim tyrant.


From Debka File….

Some 1,500 US airmen and their families have been locked in the southern Turkish air base of Incirlik together with a stock of tactical nuclear bombs since President Reccep Erdogan crushed an attempted coup on Saturday, July 16.

In the four days up until Wednesday, July 20, therefore, no air strikes against ISIS in Syria and Iraq have been staged that Turkish base.

This extraordinary situation, reported here by debkafile’s military sources, whereby a large group of American military personnel are held virtual captive by an allied government, was almost certainly raised in the phone call that took place Tuesday between President Barack Obama and Erdogan.  But the most outlandish aspect of this affair is that no American official has raised it in public – nor even by the administrations most vocal critics at the Republican convention which nominated Donald Trump as presidential candidate.

The base is under virtual siege by large police contingents, cut off from electric power for several days except for local generators which will soon run out of fuel.

This pressure appears to be Erdogan’s method of turning hundreds of Americans on the base into hostages to force Washington into extraditing Fethullah Gulen, whom he accuses of orchestrating the failed coup from his place of asylum in Pennsylvania.

The victims of Erdogan’s strategy of extortion are several US units deployed in Incirlik under squadron command. They include engineering, communication, logistics, air control, a military hospital with medical and operational facilities, air transportation and more.

A wife of a Non Commissioned Officer (NCO) trapped in Incirlik Air Base told TRUNEWS correspondent Edward Szall that her husband ate only one meal Saturday at the bases dining facilities, and has since been sustaining himself on junk food and snacks.

“He told me that everyone is getting irritable, lots of amenities being taken away it’s starting to get to people,” the spouse said Tuesday night.

A mother of an airmen sequestered inside Incirlik told TRUNEWS that her son informed her early Wednesday that Turkish police are still blockading the base entrance, and that the electric generators — powering flight operations and the underground bunkers housing B-61 nuclear bombs — would remain on until fuel rations were extinguished. Her son also claimed that Secretary of Defense Ash Carter vetoed a plan to transfer all personnel and equipment from the base after the military coup began Friday night, citing that the move was “too expensive”.

On the July 19th edition of TRUNEWS, host Rick Wiles interviewed Hans Kristensen, the Director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists, regarding the nuclear armaments housed at Incirlik Air Base. During the interview Mr. Kristensen noted the B-61 warheads would take approximately three weeks to transfer from the underground bunkers in the event of an emergency, even with a full military contingency facilitating the move.

(There is now reasonable speculation that Erdogan may be considering turning the Incirlik airbase and it’s nuclear weapon cache over to Putin. Erdogan and Putin are now scheduled to meet in early August)

The Turkish squadron and base commander, Brigadier Gen. Bekir Ercan, is under arrest, suspected of a senior role in planning and executing the coup, by assigning the aircraft and helicopters to support it, responsibility for the disappearance of a large number of aircraft and aiding the defection of air crews to Greece.

He is one of the more than 6,000 military personnel including fellow generals arrested on suspicion of active complicity in the coup plot.
