Turkey braced for the tensest MGK meeting of the year - Tension is running high ahead of today's National Security Council (MGK) meeting, which comes after a civilian inspection of the General Staff offices on Saturday and Sunday in what was a first in Turkey, a country where the military has so far toppled four governments.
The MGK comes at a time when distrust between the government and the military is at its peak. The police search of General Staff buildings, conducted this weekend as part of an investigation into an alleged assassination plot against Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Ar.nç, something that had never happened before in Turkey's history, has contributed to the confidence problem.Ar.nç, who also participates in the MGK meetings, is expected to make a speech today regarding the latest developments following the civilian search of the General Staff's Special Forces Command and the Tactical Mobilization Group, where two officers initially detained in the investigation as they kept watch outside Ar.nç's home last week serve.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdo.an, who came together on Saturday morning with Chief of General Staff Gen. .lker Ba.bu. and Land Forces Commander Gen. I..k Ko.aner in a surprise meeting following Friday night.s troublesome search attempt that could only completed the next day at the General Staff, also held a meeting with those of his ministers who serve on the MGK board. Erdo.an.s three-hour meeting with Ba.bu. and Ko.aner, which took place at the Prime Ministry, occurred in an atmosphere of extreme tension, according to sources close to the Prime Ministry, although the official statement said anti-terrorism efforts both at home and abroad were discussed. The same harshness is expected to be reflected at today.s MGK meeting.
Tensions in 2009
Tension between the government and the military is not new. It was ignited for the first time when some retired generals were detained in 2007 as part of an investigation to Ergenekon, a clandestine gang charged with plotting to overthrow the government. The retired generals mentioned in alleged coup plans devised in 2004 -- .ener Eruygur, Hur.it Tolon, Levent Ersöz and Veli Küçük -- were detained and then arrested in the operation. The arrests were initially met with silence from the General Staff. However, tension rose when dozens of caches of weapons buried underground were unearthed during the investigation.
In April 2009, Chief of General Staff Gen. Ba.bu. called a press conference about the missing military weapons that were found by the police during the Ergenekon investigation. He referred to a hollow Light Anti-tank Weapon (LAW) excavated as .just a pipe,. and claimed that weapons with similar batch numbers were given to the police force by Turkey.s only weapons. manufacturer, the Turkish Mechanical and Chemical Industry Corporation (MKE). However, in a statement responding to this, the MKE said the said weapons had been produced for and delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) alone.
The confidence crisis between the government and the military reached a new high earlier this year when a document allegedly prepared by the military -- and bearing the signature of Col. Dursun Çiçek -- called the Action Plan Against Religious Fundamentalism was leaked to the press. The document laid out a plan to undermine the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) government which would make it easier to oust the government. In a press conference on the controversy, Ba.bu. said the document was only .a piece of paper.. However, tests run on the documents at the Forensic Council of Medicine (ATK) indicated that the document was an authentic military document, and the signature under it indeed belonged to Col. Çiçek.
In each of these incidents, Ba.bu. announced that a military investigation was underway into the supposed perpetrators. But those investigations never uncovered any criminal offenses.
Recently, the alleged plot to assassinate Deputy Prime Minister Ar.nç has brought the already existing tension to a new height.
The General Staff said this past Wednesday that two military officers who were detained earlier this week on suspicion of plotting to assassinate Ar.nç were near Ar.nç.s house on the day of their detention not because they were planning to assassinate him, but because they were monitoring another army officer who is suspected of having leaked confidential military documents to the media. The explanation was hardly convincing for the case.s civilian investigators, who arranged Saturday and Sunday.s searches.
A first in Turkey
The searches at the Special Forces Command.s headquarters in Ankara.s Kirazl.dere is the first ever police raid on a military facility in Turkey. Although the civilian prosecutors were met with great resistance, they have still undertaken a historic search.
The Kirazl.dere command was where politicians, including Bülent Ecevit, Necmettin Erbakan and Alparslan Türke., were kept during their arrest during the Sept. 12, 1980 coup d.état. There also used to be a US base at the location at that time. The Kirazl.dere headquarters are believed to be where clashes between left and right groups before the 1980 coup were masterminded and coordinated.
The Tactical Mobilization Group of the Special Forces Command is believed to be the equivalent of Turkey.s Gladio. Turkey.s own Ergenekon is believed by some to be the last living extension of the Gladio, a code name denoting the clandestine NATO stay-behind operation in Italy after World War II, intended to counter a possible communist invasion of Western Europe. Many (including the Italian prosecutor who conducted Operation Clean Hands) liken the legal process against Ergenekon to the .Clean Hands. anti-corruption operation against Gladio in Italy during the 1990s.
Countless writers, journalists and witnesses have claimed that the Tactical Mobilization Group was behind the Sept. 6-7, 1955, pogrom against non-Muslim minorities in .stanbul. This unit was formed in 1952 with US support against the Soviet threat in the north. Witness accounts, past statements from the General Staff and evidence obtained during the Ergenekon investigation indicate that most of the arms and ammunition buried underground were buried by this group.

The National Security Council (Turkish: Milli Güvenlik Kurulu, MGK) comprises the Chief of Staff, select members of the Council of Ministers, and the President of the Republic (who is also the Commander-in-chief). Like the national security councils of other countries, the MGK develops the national security policy.
The policy is expressed in the National Security Policy Document (Turkish: Milli Güvenlik Siyaseti Belgesi), commonly known as "The Red Book". The Red Book is sometimes called the "most secret" document in Turkey. It is updated once or twice a decade
The creation of the MGK was an outcome of the military coup in 1960, and has been a part of the constitution since 1961. In this way the 1961 constitution created what the Turkish scholar Sakallio.lu labels "a double headed political system: the civilian council of ministers coexisted with the national security council on the executive level, and the military system of justice continued to operate independently alongside the civilian justice system." The role of the MGK was further strengthened with the 1982 constitution, adopted by the military junta in the aftermath of the 1980 military coup, before transferring power to civilian politicians. From now on its recommendations would be given priority consideration by the council of ministers. Furthermore, the number and weight of senior commanders in MGK increased at the expense of its civilian members. In 1992 then chief of general staff Gen. Do.an Güre. proclaimed self-confidently that "Turkey is a military state"
In order to meet EU's political demands for starting membership negotiations, the Copenhagen criteria, Turkey has passed a number of reforms aiming at strengthening civil control over the military. These reforms have mainly focused on the MGK, its duties, functioning and composition. On 23 July 2003 the Turkish Grand National Assembly passed the "seventh reform package", which aimed at limiting the role of the military, through reforms of the MGK. According to an editorial in the Financial Times the seventh reform package constitutes nothing less than a "quiet revolution".
Despite the impressive institutional changes, the 2004 European Commission report concludes that "Although the process of aligning civil-military relations with EU practice is underway, the Armed Forces in Turkey continue to exercise influence through a series of informal channels.
History MUST READ
take note how good the reporting in turkey is! The control of the media in Turkey is not as total as it is in the United States - in the case of the 911 inside job, i.e. the fact that US military did 911, the attckas on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, by means of super-sophisitcated high-technology. The 19 arabs (saudis) were just patsies. Mohammed Atta and a few hundred US citizens - also US military personell carrying out the operation inside the pentagon - were killed and silenced.
