The evidence is mounting that Turkey was just a US patsy, as the real intel and order to shoot down the Russian jet came from the coward in chief, President Obama. I guess Washington will do anything to protect and save its ISIS terrorists that it has on its payroll.
But while the reason behind the S-400 deployment was largely known to most, where Putin’s press conference took an unexpected detour was what he said just around 20:30 in, when in not so many words, Putin effectively accused the US of leaking the coordinates of the Russian plane to Turkey, which was merely a hitman acting with the blessing of the Pentagon.
This is what Putin said:
“We told our US partners in advance where, when at what altitudes our pilots were going to operate. The US-led coalition, which includes Turkey, was aware of the time and place where our planes would operate. And this is exactly where and when we were attacked. Why did we share this information with the Americans? Either they don’t control their allies, or they just pass this information left and right without realizing what the consequences of such actions might be. We will have to have a serious talk with our US partners.
In other words, just like in the tragic bombing of the Kunduz hospital by US forces (which has now been attributed to human error), so this time the target was a Russian plane which the US knew about well in advance, was targeted however not by the US itself, but by a NATO and US-alliance member, Turkey.
And while the deployment of the Russian SAM missiles was already known, the real message from today’s presser, the one that will be the topic of a private and “serious talk with Russia’s US partners”, is that Putin indirectly blames Obama for what happened on Tuesday realizing that Erdogan was merely the “executor”, one who is simply motivated to protect his (and his son’s) Islamic State oil routes.
Some great comments on Zerohedge show how Obama’s charade is finally being exposed…
Kamehameha: Thank God for Putin, the leader of the Free World!
God’s picture: Exactly! Mr. Putin, light up those motherfuckers.
fudge’s picture: that’s absolutely guaranteed to happen, the hawks in the DUMA will make sure that it does.
strannick’s picture: America gave ISIS the TOW rocket that exploded Russia’s helicopter on a search and rescue mission to save the remaining pilot.
America gave Turkey the co ordinates to shoot down the Russian bomber, so Turkeys corrupt leader could continue profiting from selling oil for ISIS to fund ISIS terrorism.
Putin’s patience is what keeps the world from the brink of nuclear war.
God bless and keep Vladimir Putin.
America is a piece of shit nation with a piece of shit president .
America ruins the world to rule it.
God help us all.
Troll Magnet: ISIS=Israel
Obama=Oprah’s half sister
HowdyDoody: The US says ISIS doesn’t have an air force?
Is it April 1 already?
Turkey ,a prime supporter and enabler of ISS, just gagging to open a consulate for ISIS, shot down a Russian aircraft involved in attacking ISIS. That seems like an ISIS airforce attack to me, even if we ignore the fact that the USAF attacks Assad instead of ISIS etc.
Anonymous User: Turkey once again demonstrated she knows just two things:
the fine art of belly dancing and bending over to uncle Sam.
