Turkey: The Country ISIS Uses As A Home Base And Where It Has Sold 800 Millions Dollars Of Oil

ISIS - Public Domain
If we truly do want to get rid of ISIS, why aren’t we doing anything about the Islamic governments that are funding them, aiding them and facilitating the sale of their oil?  As you will see below, ISIS fighters hop back and forth over the Turkish border with impunity, there are “direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members”, and more than $800,000,000 worth of ISIS oil has been sold in Turkey.  If these things are true, action must be taken.  According to a recent Rasmussen Reports survey, 92 percent of Americans consider Islamic terrorism to be a serious threat to the United States, and a Washington Post-ABC News survey found that 83 percent of registered voters believe that a terror attack that causes a large amount of casualties inside the United States is likely in the near future.  The American people clearly want ISIS to be dealt with, so why isn’t the Obama administration doing anything to go after the state sponsors of such terror?


At this point, most Americans have absolutely no idea what is taking place in Iraq and Syria, and the mainstream media is certainly not being straight with us.  That is why I want to share with you some key excerpts from an amazing article that was written by award-winning journalist and best-selling author Dr. Nafeez Ahmed.  According to his bio, he has “written for the Independent on Sunday, The Independent, The Scotsman, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Huffington Post, New Statesman, Prospect Magazine, Le Monde Diplomatique, among many others.”  His recent article entitled “NATO is harbouring the Islamic State” is a must read.  In particular, what he has to say about the relationship between the Turkish government and ISIS is extremely eye opening…

A senior Western official familiar with a large cache of intelligence obtained this summer from a major raid on an ISIS safehouse told the Guardian that “direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members was now ‘undeniable.’”

The same official confirmed that Turkey, a longstanding member of NATO, is not just supporting ISIS, but also other jihadist groups, including Ahrar al-Sham and Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria. “The distinctions they draw [with other opposition groups] are thin indeed,” said the official. “There is no doubt at all that they militarily cooperate with both.”

But it isn’t just that Turkey and ISIS have “direct dealings” with each other.  In his article, Ahmed goes on to explain that ISIS uses Turkish territory as a home base from which to conduct attacks, and ISIS trucks are able to travel back and forth across the border and throughout Turkey quite freely

The former ISIS fighter told Newsweek that Turkey was allowing ISIS trucks from Raqqa to cross the “border, through Turkey and then back across the border to attack Syrian Kurds in the city of Serekaniye in northern Syria in February.” ISIS militants would freely travel “through Turkey in a convoy of trucks,” and stop “at safehouses along the way.”

The former ISIS communication technician also admitted that he would routinely “connect ISIS field captains and commanders from Syria with people in Turkey on innumerable occasions,” adding that “the people they talked to were Turkish officials… ISIS commanders told us to fear nothing at all because there was full cooperation with the Turks.”

Unless the U.S. military and our intelligence agencies are completely blind, deaf and dumb, the Obama administration surely must know all of this already.

So why are they allowing it to happen?

In addition, in his article Ahmed also documented the fact that ISIS has been able to sell more than 800 million dollars worth of oil in Turkey…

Turkey has also played a key role in facilitating the life-blood of ISIS’ expansion: black market oil sales. Senior political and intelligence sources in Turkey and Iraq confirm that Turkish authorities have actively facilitated ISIS oil sales through the country.

Last summer, Mehmet Ali Ediboglu, an MP from the main opposition, the Republican People’s Party, estimated the quantity of ISIS oil sales in Turkey at about $800 million — that was over a year ago.

If ISIS had no place to sell their oil, they would be a far less formidable enemy.

And anyone that believes that the Obama administration does not know exactly where all of that oil is being sold is either completely clueless or is almost unbelievably naive.

Once we understand the role that the U.S. government played in the rise of ISIS, things begin to make more sense.  I encourage everyone to check out the excellent video by Ben Swann that I have posted below

And I think that everything that I have shared above helps to explain why Barack Obama has been so soft on ISIS.  In fact, an article posted on the Washington Free Beacon that just came out says that Obama has been blocking 75 percent of all airstrikes against ISIS targets…

U.S. military pilots who have returned from the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq are confirming that they were blocked from dropping 75 percent of their ordnance on terror targets because they could not get clearance to launch a strike, according to a leading member of Congress.

Needless to say, this is more than just a little bit alarming, and many of our military leaders are absolutely disgusted by Obama’s approach.  The following comes from Newsmax

According to the House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif., the policy is coming under attack by military leaders who believe it has enabled ISIS to gain strength within the region.

You went 12 full months while ISIS was on the march without the U.S. using that air power and now as the pilots come back to talk to us they say three-quarters of our ordnance we can’t drop, we can’t get clearance even when we have a clear target in front of us,” Royce said.

“I don’t understand this strategy at all because this is what has allowed ISIS the advantage and ability to recruit.”

While Jack Keane, a retired four-star U.S. general, agreed with Royce’s evaluation of the policy, he noted that it’s not only severely “constricting the U.S.,” but he believes it has “been an absurdity from the beginning.”

Could it be possible that Obama never intended to win the war against ISIS?

Could it be possible that Obama simply wanted to try to “contain” them and use them as a tool to help overthrow the Assad regime in Syria?

Could it be possible that he is purposely turning a blind eye to the assistance that the Turks, the Saudis and other Arab governments in the region are giving to ISIS?

If the answer to any of those questions is “yes”, then the entire war against ISIS is a complete and total fraud, and Obama should be immediately impeached.

Things are not as they seem, and the American people are not being told the truth.

Please share this article with as many people as you can on Facebook, Twitter and through email.  Our government has actively betrayed us, and now Islamic terror is more of a threat to our way of life than ever before.

    then the entire war against ISIS is a complete and total fraud, and Obama should be immediately impeached. Ding, Ding, Ding. We have a winner.As I have been saying for quite some time. The war against ISIS never existed. We have done nothing but shield and support them.

    • Sue Breslin

      Agree, ovama should be immediately impeached, but actually he should be arrested; but who will have the fortitude to act? The generals, congress, the provost marshal. There was a time in this great United States, we had pride and followed the constitution and didn’t have to think twice, about doing the right thing. This country needs to get united, starting with someone in government. I strongly believe that if we had that american patriot, that AMERICAN PEOPLE WOULD STAND WITH THEM. I also believe there is enough information to justify his arrest. We are living in very dangerous times, and this next year will be significant in the deciding factor if we remain, a free republic or end up as a socialist state.

      • Kerris

        It should be more along the lines of TREASON, according to the Constitution, the penalty is DEATH!

  • jaxon64

    Michael–there is lots of evidence that we arranged this whole thing.
    Remember the public outcry to stay out of Syria when Obama and the neocons wanted to invade? Well instead they settled for bombing sprees under the auspices of killing off ISIS about a month later.
    The VER FIRST day of attacks, the majority of the bombings were done in Aleppo–a city that was still under control of Assad forces and bordering Turkey in the Northwestern part of the country.
    Within a month, ISIS had moved in and overtaken the weakened Syrian forces and the accompanying oilfields, airport and Turkish access……I understood the BS of what we were being told and KNEW what the US was achieving right at the beginning.
    It doesn’t matter though, nobody listens–and the vast majority don’t care anyhow. Apathy is the stage right before we sink into dependence and then enslavement…democracies die ugly deaths….

    • iris

      great comment!

  • Jim Davis

    Yes, maybe the US should mind its own damned business and stay out of the Middle East and elsewhere as Ron Paul has said.

  • DJohn1

    What you are suggesting is Treason from the very top.
    What it really comes down to is WHO will bell the cat?
    The only way this particular cat might be belled is for a united media to publish all the facts and that is not going to happen any where soon. If they did, what is to keep the office from shutting everyone down.
    Even with all the facts known to everyone, who keeps this man from pushing the nuclear button before he is restrained?
    Just like the cover up of a social security number that doesn’t belong to the President of this Country.
    Just like a forged birth certificate that the courts will not hear evidence on.
    The puzzle we all fail to see is that someone is backing this man even though it is apparent that a lot is wrong.
    The Vice President would have to take over.
    Or the Speaker of the House.
    There was a time when impeachment was a real possibility if a President did things that were illegal.
    Perhaps that time is now gone.
    Because what I see is not one but an entire series of actions that are questionable legally.
    Under the national security act, it is possible that no action will be taken. As every last one of them could be arrested and restrained with no hope of an attorney.
    That is what our Congress voted on and approved with over 300 votes for and 80 some votes against.
    All in the name of National Security.
    No where is there a legal precident for this.
    So do you really think this man can be impeached? I don’t.

    • iris

      Great observation! I agree, DJohn1, perhaps it has gotten so out of hand that we can’t impeach anymore. As W. said, the Constitution is just a g*&(@+_ed piece of paper. We the people are being sold many lies. This is the natural course of nations and empires, and sadly, it looks like the U.S. is no exception. I think our days are numbered. Time to seek our Creator, our citizenship is with Him.

    • afchief

      Nope! Our congress is a bunch of cowards. I have been writing my congressman (a conservative) a lot asking him to grow some gonads and start the impeachment process…………crickets

      • DJohn1

        You have to ask yourself who benefits from an incompetent Democrat in the office of President?
        The stinkier it gets the more the Republicans gain.
        They are in no hurry to get this skunk out of office.

  • krinks

    Obama has said; “I am a Muslim”, “My Muslim faith”, and spoke of Muslims using the term “we”. What would a Muslim do but put one of their own in the White House using illegal foreign donations and ensuring media bias through large commercial buys? So of course these Islamic nations attack Christians and Jews while supporting the worst of the worst.

    • Lazarovic

      Another fool with “Obama derangement syndrome”. Turn off the Faux Fake News, it should clear up.

      • krinks

        If you check the fact you’ll see that all three claims I made concerning Obama are true. Then again to know such things you’ll have to frequent a media outlet who doesn’t get their talking points directly from the White House or DNC as MSNBC and CNN do.

    • Gay Veteran

      well Obama sure is good at killing Muslims

  • Lazarovic

    So glad to see the world is finally seeing the Turks for what they are – the enemy of the west and totally complicit in the creation of ISIS. They are the original murdering, genocidal Islamic state, slaughtering a million Armenians and more than 300,000 Greeks in WW1 and afterwards in the 1920s. They long for the days of the Ottoman empire, when half of Europe lay prostrate at their feet. Expel them from NATO, enact a no fly zone over Turkey, and slam them with sanctions. If they continue, then it’s war; crush the Turks.

          If America can kill 3,000 of their own people in the 911 false flag inside job, then accuse other leaders of killing their own people, anything can happen.

      • RedSky

        You wonder how long Russia is going to stand for the US shooting down their planes, one passenger jet over Egypt and now the figher jet over Turkey today. ISIS is an American made entity, financed and supported by our tax dollars. What goes around comes around. If they can blindly kill, maime innocent civilians and pillage other countries, what do they have in store for America under the guise of ISIS.

        • mothman777

          Maybe when US troops are over- occupied in Europe and the ME, ISIS troops will be rampaging through America unstoppably, by arrangement of the Israeli government in the US inflicting the Noahide Laws on Christians unofficially for Israel.

          That will save the US Israeli government attempting to officially effect the 1991 Noahide Laws and start killing all the Christians themselves with official Israeli-trained US forces, which might be too messy for them to cover up. ‘ISIS terrorists’ would be ideal for the job, so discreet.

    Actually there is a growing chance of Turkish-Russian war when nuclear bombs will be used. Turkey is mad at Russians that they are pounding into oblivion those ISIS scums in Syria. And they support ISIS as a opposition to PKK because Turkish government really hates Kurds with a passion.

  • desert nudist

    Guess which ethnicity of people were celebrating after the twin towers fell? ARABS

    • S.M.

      Here are responses to the one who spreads false assumptions by taking verses out of context:


      The companions (of the Prophet) are firm [NOT HARSH] against the disbelievers: They are not such that the disbelievers may mold them as they like. They can neither be cowed nor purchased by any inducement. The disbelievers have no power to turn them away from the great objective for the sake of which they have joined and followed the Prophet (peace be upon him) even at the cost of their lives.
      Look at the verse before it:
      So, what is the matter with you that you have become two groups about the hypocrites, while Allah has reverted them because of what they did…
      [The hypocrites were the ones from Mecca who pretended to be Muslims. The verse discloses the hypocrites never truly embraced the religion and were conspiring against the Muslims. So, the Muslims were ordered to kill them because of their evil doing. So it is NOT a general statement about non-Muslims.]

      • desert nudist

        I just used copy & paste for SOME of the hateful verses in the Quran. If you go to thereligionofpeace (dot) commercial it’s obvious they’re doing just what it says.

    This whole thing, with ISIS, is about the petro dollar.

    From the overthrow of Libya, to the war in Syria, to the fact that weapons and supplies are run through Turkey into Syria. This isn’t incompetence, it’s deliberate.

    Russia’s big victory in Syria is showing that “Uncle Sam” is a shadow of it’s former self militarily. The dollar is backed by oil and ENFORCED by the service. The enforcer is weak, beat up, and worn out.

  • DJohn1

    With the downing of Russian jets, we are on the verge of a World War!
    The behavior of the Turks with support for ISIS? I think it needs more publicity than it has been given.
    I think the pilots and crew if alive need to be turned back over to their home country now.
    With possible regrets over this tragic mistake in judgement.
    The next step for Russia is a choice of whether or not to attack Turkey for its actions.
    Turkey is also into drug country harvesting. Namely heroin.
    If this continues, Turkey does stand to lose a lot of money.
    The question then becomes is NATO part of a conspiracy to protect those crops at any cost?
    What I see Russia doing is really a horrible massacre from the air. Possibly shooting from 120 feet or less with a scorched earth.
    We are in a position of defending a country we have no appetite to defend. This is where it can get really interesting as people line up for and against Turkey.
    Guess which way I think Mr. Obama is going with this.

    Turkey is preparing another caliphate. Edgordan just shut down the free press over night. He and Obama are in collusion.

    Look at the barbaric history of Turkey: Serbia, SE Italy, the battle of Lepanto, of Venice, the destruction of Christianity within Asia Minor, recently in the last century, Armenia, the destruction of Smyrna, the barbarianism of Cyprus in 1974.

    Look at the spiritual practice of sufism, how everything is an illusion, how people go into a trance and are capable of anything…it was the Sufi Muslims who committed the worst slaughters of India, 10 million people.

    A new 1000 room palace as been built in Ankara….for what purpose? and adjacent buildings for other leaders of Islam.

    Turkey is a good little US/NATO lap dog.
    Turkey is a perfect example of what a NATO membership really is. Turkey will do what Turkey is told to do. Period.

    When the Israelis attacked and murdered Turkish citizens (Mavi Marmara) in international waters, all the Turkey AND NATO big wig Generals could do was wring their hands and gnash their teeth at their helplessness to even so much as criticize the murdering Israelis.

    That’s the price of a NATO membership.

  • douglas gray

    There is more to it than even this article suggests:
    Some of the big banks are in trouble due to holding oil derivatives, and oil is being purchased from ISIS then resold at a higher price, so someone is making extra money besides ISIS from this.
