Turkish brig.-gen. executed for revealing Qatari funding of jihadists
[Jpost] Brigadier-General Semih Terzi was reported in 2016 to have been one of the organizers behind the failed coup against Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
A Ottoman Turkish colonel, who worked for the country’s Special Forces Command intelligence division (OKK), testified in a court proceeding that the former head of the OKK issued an liquidation order against one of the organizers of the 2016 coup because he reportedly had knowledge of illicit Qatar

] by Qatar for the purpose of purchasing weapons and ammunition for the opposition was actually used for that and how much of it was used by public officials, and how much was embezzled," Col. Firat Alakus said.

Terzi was reported in 2016 to have been one of the organizers behind the failed coup against Ottoman Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The Nordic Monitor added that Alakus said the Qatari case was not the only example of how financial graft unfolded after monetary transfers to Turkey for use in the Syrian civial war.

According to the Sweden-based news outlet, Alakus testified at the Ankara 17th High Criminal Court on March 20, 2019.

"Now, Semih Terzi was targeted because of his intimate knowledge of affairs relating to Syria, Your Honor. What is this information? If you want, I can expand on it, some of which is critical," Alakus said at the court hearing.

Terzi "was aware of which public officials were assisting in arms smuggling to Syria and for what purpose," noted Alakus.

"[Terzi’s murder] had to do with a trap devised by Zekai Aksakalli, who did not want such facts to come out into the open," he continued.

Lt.-Gen. Zekai Aksakalli oversaw the OKK at the time of Terzi’s liquidation and has now become a Syrian civil "war profiteer," according to the Nordic Monitor.
Alakus said "[Terzi] was aware of who in the government was involved in an oil-smuggling operation from Syria, how the profits were shared and what activities they were involved in."

The colonel said Terzi was also aware of the Ottoman Turkish government providing medical care in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey

#2 Qatar and Turkey. State sponsors of terrorism that the US Government won't touch. The first because we have a base their; the second because they (putatively) belong to NATO. It's a cynical game being played in Washington.
