Why did U.S. officials form alliances with antidemocratic and fascist groups and militaries? The secret 1954 Doolittle Report sheds light on this question. It made the case that the United States faced a total war against an implacable enemy whose avowed objective is world domination. There are no rules in such a game. Hitherto acceptable norms of human conduct do not apply. If the United States is to survive, long-standing American concepts of “fair play” must be reconsidered.We must learn to subvert, sabotage, and destroy our enemies by more clever, more sophisticated, and more effective methods than those used against us.
By the end of the Second World War secret stay-behind armies are formed on the experiences and strategies of special operations units and the Western Union Clandestine Committee (WUCC) were created to coordinate secret unorthodox warfare. After the founding of NATO it is integrated into the military alliance under the name ‘Clandestine Planning Committee’ (CPC). By 1958 the NATO sets up the Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC) to coordinate undisclosed warfare, later hidden within the Belgian military secret service SGR with its headquarters next to NATO under the code name SDRA11. What was at first sold as a fall back option, when a country is overrun by enemy forces, soon developed into invisible armies of internal subversion against democratic forces. Strategies of tension and a top-level campaign of political destabilization in countries were financed from highly discrete state agencies, private sources and multinational firms. Based on hidden structures, training camps were set up to instruct mercenaries in covert action techniques including hands-on bomb campaigns, silent assassination, subversion and black propaganda techniques, clandestine communication, infiltration and colonial warfare. Secret operatives in Turkey and other European countries used their skills to attack domestic opponents and spark violent disorder. Some operations are intended to bring about right-wing military rule. Like all around the world, deep undercover armies supported the Turkish military to stage a coup d’état in 1960 and executed the Prime Minister Menderes. In 1971, the military takes power again and the stay-behind army Counter-Guerrilla engages in domestic terror eliminating thousands in Turkey. They open fire on a demonstration of 500,000 in Istanbul with 38 dead and countless wounded in1977, three years later the Stay-Behind Counter-Guerrilla commander General Kenan Evren seized power in a coup.
1980 Junta committed endless list of crimes against humanity and forced its military constitution in 1982 which is still in use. Junta forces still threaten any democratic challenge from democratic parties.
I am personally victim of the 1980 military junta. I was tried as 17 year-old student upon the complaint of my high school headmaster Mr. Resat Sirin. He complained that I insulted him by writing in my defense paper that he was protecting communists and persecuting anti-communists. Mr. Sirin expelled me from the Education System, actually terminating my education before the 1980 Military Takeover. As Junta took power in1980 they secretly blacklisted me as anti-communist sympathizer and turned my life into a hell up until now.
1-They refused to give me passport for 17 years from 1983 till 2000, humiliating and making me human target for abuses.2-They declared void and null my successful exam after military training during my mandatory 8-month long military service in 1987, humiliating and making me a human target for abuses.3-They declared void and null my career diplomat in the Foreign Ministry of Turkey since December 22, 1986 up until today. They declared void and null my career training exams and pretended that my trainee status never ended and can continue all my lifetime, humiliating and making me a human target for abuses and destruction.
International Criminal Court should hang these dictators for crimes against humanity.
