The US Army sees members of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is classified by the US as a terrorist group, as “freedom fighters,” according to WikiLeaks documents disclosed this week.
Turkey is mentioned in 128 of 391,000 confidential documents leaked by the whistleblower website that revealed the shocking civilian death toll in Iraq. In one document, the terrorist PKK is exalted as “freedom fighters.” The documents refer to a PKK group captured in Fallujah in 2004 as “freedom fighters who are citizens of Turkey.” The timing of this document comes shortly after Turkey’s Parliament decided not to allow the US to deploy troops in Turkey to attack Iraq.
Among the documents is a note about a PKK member caught in 2006 which states that it might be risky to hand him over to Iraqi police. Another document includes a report showing that a large number of Turks were arrested in Fallujah, the base of Sunni resistance fighters. A document from February 2007 reported that an Iraqi who resides in Turkey provided chemical gas used in several attacks by al-Qaeda there. WikiLeaks’ new revelations were seen as shocking by many, as US documents show that the civilian death toll in Iraq since the 2003 invasion has reached 115,000. This includes only the number of documented deaths.
