OSC on Turkey’s “Ergenekon” Underground Movement
A new report (pdf) from the DNI Open Source Center profiles Turkey’s subversive “Ergenekon” movement.
“‘Ergenekon’ is the name of an alleged illegal neonationalist organization accused of planning to oust the pro-Islamic Justice and Development Party (AKP) government through a military coup. The organization, in turn, has been linked to the so-called ‘Deep State,’ alleged to be a vast, underground network of secular Turks plotting criminal acts to destabilize the government,” the OSC report said.
“Ergenekon’s leader, also referred to as ‘Number One,’ has not yet been identified,” the OSC remarked.
The OSC does not make its products freely available to the public even when they are unclassified and not copyrighted. But a copy of this report was obtained by Secrecy News. See “Turkey — Guide to Ergenekon,” Open Source Center, March 19, 2010.
