Alien UFO in Turkey? or just cold Turkey!

Posted by dandare on October 25, 2008

My attention has been led to the UFO footage in Turkey…. I must point out that this is old news, and has been on you tube,ect for a while. But yes i’m afraid its my friends,  at “The Sun” who are behind the start of this media hype again……

In ” Flying saucer filmed in Turkey ” (posted 21st October, 2008 ).

The shots were captured by night guard Yalcin Yalman in a compound in Turkey earlier this year….[.]…The 42-year-old and a number of residents claim the UFOs were spotted over a four month period between May and September near the compound in Istanbul…[.]…The clips were handed to the Sirius UFO Space Science Research Centre in Turkey……[.]….”After conducting all of the analysis we came to the conclusion that this video footage is 100 per cent genuine “ ” (extracts from article).

What i have a problem with,  is that there is no real details, on what type of analysis was made, and who conducted the analysis. Anyway, soon other media circles started picking up on this as well.

A good article can be seen written by Digital journal ” Turkey UFO pics – sudden interest in UFOs by media, or more hype from tabloid trash ? ”  It makes some very valid points  

We do not have:

Corroboration from an independent source
Any official data, radar, or other information
Anything but this video

We do have:

Some reason to believe The Sun isn’t an irrefutable source of information.
A certain skepticism that mainstream media, which has been shamelessly attacking UFO witnesses for decades, is suddenly among the believers.

The ability to take better pictures with a cardboard box with a hole in it .
Readers of The Sun don’t seem to impressed, either. There’s a UFO expert who seems to be convinced, but that’s not quite court standard evidence, either.
The sick thing about this is that nobody believes any official sources any more. 60 years of denial of honest reports from people like Air Force pilots, as well as the public, has just convinced people that the officials doth protest too much. There’s not even the expectation of honesty.
Unless someone comes up with something a lot better than this, I’d say we can assume that mainstream media is just living up to its heavy responsibility of providing more bull for the world.
I guess if credibility isn’t an issue, it’s not a problem for journalists, either
” (rather large extract from article).

I could not have put it better than this….. so unless proved otherwise, i’m afraid this is cold turkey/a hoax.

Just one more thing to add and its important, about Haktan Akdogan, and it is some background information; it was written by the Asia Times in 2007 ” Close encounters of the Turkish kind

Haktan Akdogan of Sirius seems to be a recurring figure in Turkish UFO lore commenting freely on each event and insisting on the importance of Turkey to alien life. His motives however may not just be scientific, he is also the owner of the Istanbul UFO museum that opened in 2002 (commercially riding on the back of these multiple UFO events) and any extra interest in aliens will also encourage customers to his museum. He also runs the museum as a fairly successful franchise with three others in Turkey (Istanbul, Denizli and Goreme in Cappadocia) and his website http://www.siriusufo.org advertises for further partners to open other UFO museums.It is his intention to open UFO museums all over Turkey to “further the knowledge of the Turkish people and to attract tourists”. His organization provides all the necessary materials and installations so each museum is a de facto copy of the first. Whether they are lucrative or not is not mentioned but when the Goreme museum opened in 2006 Hurriyet newspaper reported that they had 5,000 visitors in one month alone. Apparently it was especially popular with the Japanese ” (large extract from article).
