Nationalists see the Ergenekon trial as a travesty of justice
The so-called Ergenekon case is huge, both in the size of the prosecutor's indictment and its political significance.

Even excluding its many appendices, the indictment is a massive 2,455 pages-long.

It describes an incredible-sounding plot linking lawyers, academics, a mafia man, a hitman and former members of the military, in an alleged ultra-nationalist conspiracy to topple Turkey's Islamist-rooted government.

In all, 86 suspects are now on trial, facing charges ranging from possession of firearms to running an armed terrorist organisation.

i can't believe that my clipping brought the picture with it...???


This is exactly the way that our own ( USA ) government should have handled The 911 Attack, assuming ( probably erroneously ) that it was planned & executed by foreign nationals...

And that is; Treat it as A Criminal Matter, that would be thoroughly investigated and only then, would those few that were any way responsible for it, be held culpable for their actions.
