    Turkey, a bridge country and geography between Blacksea and Mediterrinan, between caucasus and balkans, between middle east and europe, between west and east; thus a struggle area between cultures, understandings, religions, social orders, way of life enginerings, blocs and traditional structures. The known history shows that this struggle has always existed and will always exist. Today, as Turkey is an open country, it has crowded population of intelligence officers and influence agents that can be seen in very few places in the world.

    As you know, British Ambassador of Ankara, Richard Moore appointed as the British foreign intelligence service MI6 chief. So is this a general situation or an exception? Since Istanbul and Ankara are critical cities, many intelligence officers or diplomats working here are climbing the career ladder much faster than anyone. As before, many diplomats and other officials serving at Turkey in recent years, brought theirs country's head of intelligence services.

    The CIA's first female chief Gina Haspel, or French intelligence service DGSE chief Bernard Emie also rose in Turkey on the beginning. It is noteworthy that the names of people working in Ankara are brought to the foreign intelligence services of global powers such as the USA, England and France. These names, after spending a significant part of their careers in Turkey topped the intelligence world. Another common point of these names is their speaking Turkish fluently.

    This is almost a common career point in some specific tasks, desks or working groups, beyond the organization's central presidency.

    If you look from the opposite angle: its also partly describes that why many parishes, communities, NGOs or capital groups, has historical relations with these structures.

    Like I said a few times there are extremely many agents in turkey ...

    NGOs, 'priests', journalists, etc. but they all meet with the PKK or the HDP ...
    are marching with GEZI at the frontline---
    When the coup started, everyone was suddenly on vacation...

    Turkey has to start a cleanup - not only against FETO but against spies...

    is our MIT completely incapable?

    A central intelligence units duty is to protect the nation against foreign interference. If it becomes a tool for governant then it loses it’s value.

    So IMO MIT should exist out of RTE influence. If it doesn’t then don’t expect patriots to join MIT just to become a tool for RTE.

    You’ll only have pro government ppl in it.

    RTE is a elected President of Turkish Republic.
    this means that
    ERDOGAN is equal to Republic of Turkey. Of course MIT personal should be loyal to The President not to Kemalist oligarchy.

    The secret service should be loyal - yes... so that the secret service does not work like a deep state...
    but it should not be available to any president as a personal servant...
    I think the middle ground is correct

    The rats are back. They left the ship when Reis cancelled the navtex. But are back to scavenge what’s left.

    Unfortunately the cleanup and return to law and order is going to be a long road for TC.
