For the neo-conservatives, the most important issuein the Turkish affairs before the war on Iraq is ‘with whom Turkey is dealing in the military operation against Iraq?’ There was no political figure in Washington who was grateful to the coalition government led by Bulent Ecevit in 2001. However, all the information coming from Turkey says that there is only one person who can lead Turkey in this direction and the name of this person was always mentioned (in the informationcoming from the villages); he is Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The information contained in the intelligence reports coming from Turkey indicates that Erdogan is a successful mayor and he can lead Turkey easily.” According to the information obtained by Turan Yavuz, Janid Zabsu was arranging Erdogan’s secret meetings with the active figures in America before he became a prime minister of Turkey, through his friend Greenville Bayford, known as “the man with the boots”. Zabsu’s friendship with Bayfordhas begun since Davos meetings.Bayford was famous in Boston for being “the king of bars”. Later, he worked as a consultant to develop” corporate strategies”.
His wife Gadish is a Jewish intelligence expert. She was ranked 91st for the world’s most powerful woman by the famous business magazine Forbes. She is the daughter of an Israeli general.At the same time, she is the sister-in-law of the former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres and one of his closest advisers. Since she was seventeen years old, she has been started to work as an assistant in the Military Intelligence Unit of the Israeli Chief of Staff.In addition, she is a politician and an intelligence expert who has an important relationship with the army.
Nine months before the elections of October 3rd, 2003 and before the election date, Erdogan went to America.What is surprising are the talks Erdogan conducted in America, although he has no official status in Turkey, except that he is the chairman of the Justice and Development Party.
As soon as he arrived in American, he found an intense agenda ahead; to deliver a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies CSIS (the most important intellectual institutions in America supported by the Jewish capital), then he had to meet the most important bureaucratic figures of America,followed by the meetings he had with Graham Fuller, the US intelligence chief and Morton Abramowitz, the US Ambassador to Ankara, and Henri Barkey, Who is fluent in Turkish as Turkish people themselves and who played a role in the establishment of the Rafah-Yul coalition government.
In addition, he had to meet the Rand Corporation of the CIA and the Lehman Brothers.(The fourth-largest investment bank before filing for bankruptcy in 2008,which leads to a global economic crisis.) At the end of the meetings, Erdogan will be introduced tothe officials of the American Jewish Congress, and he will exchange views with them on the Middle East affairs and Turkish-Israeli relations.
