ISIS Oil Going Into Turkey - Photo from the General Staff Of The Russian Armed ForcesHow is Barack Obama going to get out of this one? On Tuesday, the Russian military produced an impressive array of evidence that clearly shows that ISIS oil is being smuggled into Turkey on an industrial scale. The evidence included photographs taken by satellite and during aerial reconnaissance missions. What the Russians have shown the world is extremely compelling, and it raises some very disturbing questions. First of all, how involved is the Turkish government in all of this? There is no way in the world that an endless parade of trucks carrying ISIS oil could have marched through Turkish border checkpoints without the cooperation of the central government. Secondly, what did Obama know and when did he know it? The U.S. military has far better surveillance capabilities than the Russians do, and so it seems absolutely absurd to suggest that Obama didn’t know what was going on.


This new Russian evidence was presented to the world by Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov, and he says that “thousands of oil trucks” have been going back and forth over the Turkish border…

According to Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov, Russia is aware of three main oil smuggling routes to Turkey.

“Today, we are presenting only some of the facts that confirm that a whole team of bandits and Turkish elites stealing oil from their neighbors is operating in the region,” Antonov said, adding that this oil “in large quantities” enters the territory of Turkey via live oil pipelines,” consisting of thousands of oil trucks.

But Antonov didn’t stop there. He went on to publicly accuse President Erdogan of Turkey and his family of running the entire operation

“Turkey is the main consumer of the oil stolen from its rightful owners, Syria and Iraq. According to information we’ve received, the senior political leadership of the country – President Erdogan and his family – are involved in this criminal business,” said Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov.

“Maybe I’m being too blunt, but one can only entrust control over this thieving business to one’s closest associates.”

In the West, no one has asked questions about the fact that the Turkish president’s son heads one of the biggest energy companies, or that his son-in-law has been appointed energy minister. What a marvelous family business!

“The cynicism of the Turkish leadership knows no limits. Look what they’re doing. They went into someone else’s country, they are robbing it without compunction,” Antonov said.

And he is right.

The Erdogan family is knee deep in this scandal, and Barack Obama has known about it the entire time. For much more on the involvement of the Erdogan family in the smuggling of ISIS oil, please see my previous article entitled “The Biggest Obama Scandal? He Knows That Turkey Is Buying Oil From ISIS And He Is Doing Nothing To Stop It“.

During his presentation, Antonov gave us a lot of specifics. He even claimed that the Russians know precisely where much of this stolen oil ends up. The following comes from an Infowars report

“The western route goes to Turkish ports on the Mediterranean coast, the north—to the refinery Batman in Turkey and the east—to the largest transshipment base in the village of Cizre,” the Russian Ministery of Defense web page states.

Oil from fields near the Syrian city of Raqqa—said to be the capital city of the Islamic State—is transported at night through the border town of Azaz, Syria and Reyhanli, Turkey to the port of Iskenderun and Dörtyol where the stolen oil is loaded on tankers.

The Russians claim the convoys are under the control of al-Nusra, the terror group funded by the Gulf Emirates and that cooperates with the Islamic State and supposed moderates in the Free Syrian Army.

Posted below is one of the charts that Antonov used during his presentation. As you can see, the Russians are not just making “vague accusations”…

Oil Smuggling From Syria And Iraq To Turkey

If you would like to watch video of Antonov’s entire presentation, you can do so right here. What Antonov is saying in the video has been translated into English, so you will be able to understand it.

To me, one of the most striking things about the presentation was when Antonov accused the Turks of supplying fighters, ammunition and vehicles to ISIS and Al-Nusra. The following comes from an RT article

Up to 2,000 fighters, 120 tons of ammunition and 250 vehicles have been delivered to Islamic State and Al-Nusra militants from Turkish territory, chief of National Centre for State Defense Control Lt.Gen. Mikhail Mizintsev said.

According to reliable intelligence reports, the Turkish side has been taking such actions for a long time and on a regular basis. And most importantly, it is not planning to stop them.”

If any of these allegations are true, Turkey should be immediately kicked out of NATO.

And if Barack Obama knew about any of this and refused to stop it, he should be facing impeachment proceedings.

For the moment, the official position of the U.S. government is that nothing that the Russians are saying is true

Following Russian accusations, the US has again defended Turkey, denying any ties between Ankara and Islamic State.

We flatly reject any notion that the Turks are somehow working with ISIL. Preposterous. And really very, kind of ridiculous,” Steve Warren, Pentagon spokesman, said.


As an American, I am utterly embarrassed that our “leaders” would continue to try to deny what Turkey is doing after everything that has come out.

By flat out lying to the world, we are losing any credibility that we had left.

Hundreds of millions of dollars worth of stolen oil has been smuggled into Turkey, and our government still has the audacity to try to tell us not to look behind the curtain?

No wonder why most people over in Iraq are convinced that the U.S. is actually on the same side as ISIS. They don’t trust anything that we have to say anymore. The following comes from the Washington Post

Ordinary people also have seen the videos, heard the stories and reached the same conclusion — one that might seem absurd to Americans but is widely believed among Iraqis — that the United States is supporting the Islamic State for a variety of pernicious reasons that have to do with asserting U.S. control over Iraq, the wider Middle East and, perhaps, its oil.

“It is not in doubt,” said Mustafa Saadi, who says his friend saw U.S. helicopters delivering bottled water to Islamic State positions. He is a commander in one of the Shiite militias that last month helped push the militants out of the oil refinery near Baiji in northern Iraq alongside the Iraqi army.

The Islamic State is “almost finished,” he said. “They are weak. If only America would stop supporting them, we could defeat them in days.”

If we are going to continue to lie about the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of stolen oil that has been smuggled into Turkey, why should anyone believe anything else that we have to say?

The Obama administration and the Turkish government have been caught in a massive, massive lie.

In the end, this is the kind of scandal that could potentially bring down the Obama administration, leaders in Congress, and many among the top brass in the U.S. military.

So what do you think about this emerging scandal?

    D.C. is corrupt through and through. My prediction, nothing will happen to Obama. No matter what the evidence, nothing will happen. Too many Senators, and Congressmen, making their own dirty deals. Anyone want to take up one of the oldest challenges? Go to D.C., and find me fifty honest men

    Obama will continue to get away with whatever he wishes. For some reason and this is the 50 million dollar question everyone should be asking is why?

    This muslim, communist in the Rainbow House should have been impeached during his first term…………but wasn’t.

  • Richard L

    What I find suspicious is that the Russians are kind of claiming to have just found out about all of this – within days of losing their aircraft. Hmmm… Surely they must have known about this for ages? If anyone truly wanted to stop ISIL they just need to ask who’s funding them. A simple audit of Toyota/Chevy pickup truck sales could lead lead to this quite quickly – or is that just way too simplistic? Perhaps by ‘bombing ISIL’ the Russians knew very well they were actually just starting another proxy war with the US? Cold War style. Perhaps they need a war too? Perhaps it’s only now that they’ve taken a hit, that they’re going to share a few dirty secrets? Make no mistake, I’d sooner trust the Russian government than I would the US government, but I don’t think Russia’s hands are exactly clean. Just a thought.

      Russia knew the oil trade as soon as they entered Syria some 2 months ago. But first task was to destroy ISIL command and fighting ability. That was mostly done. Second task was to target their source of finance, which Russia knew was by selling oil to Turkey. That terror oil brings in up to $90 million per month to ISIL to finance the war. A lot of ISIL weapons are bought from Ukraine. Russia proceeded to destroy columns of oil trucks the past few weeks, hurting both ISIL and Turkey real bad. It was from this that Turkey decided to ambush and down a Russian jet while it was doing oil strike mission. After the downing, Russia decided to expose Turkey complicity in ISIL terror. Here we have the laughable situation of a NATO country Turkey helping Islamic terror on another NATO country France, and a third NATO country USA decided that was OK.

  • news

    A Pentagon spokesman rejected Russia’s evidence of Turkey’s involvement in oil deals with Islamic State militants, calling Turkey a “great partner” just a day after his boss complained to Congress that Ankara was not fighting ISIS enough.
    “Let me be very clear that we flatly reject any notion that the Turks are somehow working with ISIL,” said Colonel Steve Warren, spokesman for the US-led coalition fighting against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). “That is preposterous and kind of ridiculous. We absolutely, flatly reject that notion.”

    Obama and the rest ’em should be behind bars for numerous treason’s and crimes by now, but too many representatives are afraid of a marginal minority of childish usurpers.

    There are two war crime evils in America with regard to Syria and ISIL. There is Obama, whose policy is undemocratic regime overthrow of Assad. (How about some foreign leader do that to him?) Then there is the real devil, the Pentagon. While the two evils are not necessarily in sync on everything, it is important to note the Obama allows the Pentagon to run his foreign and military policy, Obama is hands-off on all operational matters.

    The Pentagon ultimate goal is overthrow of Russia’s Putin, collapse of Russia by creating upheavals in the entire Middle East and Ukraine, by expanding NATO, which of course is just a bunch of European puppets under the American commander-in-chief. But why? Is Russia today the great Stalinist state? Of course not. But the Cold War which lasted 5 decades have been splendid joy for the Pentagon generals. Something about that trillion-dollar budget and any weapon systems they demanded they got. Most of that is gone now. The greatest enemy to an imperial conquering general is the slashed budget. The only way to re-establish America as the world biggest militaristic state that’s 10 times bigger than all other countries’ military combined is to recreate the Cold War.

    This is why Obama, and the Pentagon which he serves, ensure there is continued horror, terror, war and conflicts anywhere in the world where they can exploit. Why for 5 years of ‘bombing’ the Islamic State was kept alive, prosper even. Until Russia entered to help Syria and started to really do some work. Why Obama knew of Turkey onside with the Islamic State and did nothing. He is not going to bomb one of his NATO puppets no matter what. All the time lying to the world. Who is the terrorist?

    Call this the United Terror States of America. From within to the world. From within to itself. As more one gun mass murder per day testify.

  • Lib

    Half the time you’re crying cause the President rightfully ended the pipeline and the other half of the time you’re crying about oil in Turkey. Seriously people, are you that stupid? You all love your gas guzzling SUVs but now don’t even want oil to run them. Idiots, all of you.

    • markb1016

      Like a single drop off that oil is ending úp in the tanks of any suv in the US.. It’s all going straight to Europe..

      • Lib

        Drive up and down any street in any city and there are gas stations. What do you think they are selling? Moron!

    • T Bone

      It’s not about the oil, it’s about the POTUS knowingly letting the main enemy of the US fund its war and doing nothing about it.

      • Lib

        So you think only Americans should get gas? How inconsiderate. Aarabs like to drive around two and I’m not going to let racisit attitudes keep them in their homes (YES–homes, not mud huts) just because you want all the gas.

        So selfish.

    • jehanne

      What on earth are you talking about? No one is saying that other nations should not receive oil. We are saying no nation should be buying oil from ISIS, period! That is the whole issue. Do not aid and abet a devil. Turkey is doing that and so is anyone knowingly buying oil from ISIS. You think there are not other sources EU could get their oil? There is a current glut on the market.

    • slypen

      Lib you are delusional. The oil is stll flowing thru rail tankers all owned by warren buffet. You think this method safer than a pipeline.btw the name in grey is login other than disqus?

  • TJM

    Should we bring up that it was the Turkish Prime Minister that mr. Obama was bowing to just after the election. Should we be asking about where his loyalties lie and how deep is he involved in this?

    Obama is not the problem. Just a symptom of American self-sickness. Europe has the same problem compound by the EU. Erdogan has extorted an EU blind-eye to his rape of Iraq and Syria in exchange for his temporary easing of the refugee flow. But before everyone jumps on board the Russian sled, realize the man from whom this information comes was brainwashed by and participated in a form of government that killed over 20 million of its own people. Putin is no savior, but he does don a cape rather convincingly. Don’t swallow the Russian’s poison, but stay away from Obama’s kool-aid. Christ is our only hope.

    OR they were giving Turkey a chance to save face and end the oil trade

    Obama’s hubris will be his downfall. He’s definitely the Worst POTUS in American History! Its not a secret that the CIA has been funneling money to al Qaeda for years. Its all about the Oil in the Middle East, always was and always will be!

  • moi2u

    The entire reason Isis exists is because of the oil issue in the Middle East. The powers that be wanted/want Assad taken out/removed from power because he refused a pipeline from Saudi Arabia that they wanted to route through both Iraq and Syria into Turkey. Initially, Isis was formed to do the dirty work in getting rid of Assad so there would be regime change and no opposition to the oil pipeline–but Putin came to Assad’s aid, making this very difficult, so they found a work-around via Isis leaders who decided that taking out Assad isn’t it’s top priority–that the oil that everyone was fighting over in the 1st place is. So, now, they have their “live oil truck pipeline” directly from Iraq and Eastern Syria into Turkey which they don’t need Saudi Arabia to sponsor, because it’s brought to you by Isis…which is brought to you by the sinister UN and it’s minions who are in the business of nation building in order to grab up control of the world’s most vital natural resources–which has been the mission of the UN for the last 45 years.

    We’ve all been lied to for decades…Barry O is just another puppet doing his part in bringing the designs of the global one-world government to pass. Each US president has done his part since the late 1800s in bringing the global one-world gov’t to pass. The only two who decided to fight it and to warn the people were taken out, including McKinley and JFK. Once Woodrow Wilson agreed to make the American people slaves to the global banking cartel via the permanent establishment of a central bank to rule over the people, (a move he regretted and apologized for before he died) one of the major obstacles was removed.

    With the American people, unwittingly, now financing their designs, they went to work cementing their control over us for the next 30 years, then formed the official global governing body, the UN. The shift went from financing world wars on a global scale against would-be global dictators who they did not and could not control, to financing specific conflicts across the globe to fight their Communist opposition (whose design is also for global domination) and to ready the world for their nation-building -global resource control agenda. Fact or Fiction? You decide…keeping in mind the continual meddling the US has done and regime change our leaders have signed us onto in the Middle East since 1945.
