Istanbul Airport Opens 4 1⁄2 Hours after Triple Suicide Bombing Attack

By Vivian Lee

In a stunning turnaround, the Istanbul Ataturk Airport opened for business at 2:20 am local time on Wednesday June 29, after the alleged triple suicide bombing that began at 9:50 pm the night before. In a little over four hours, the airport was able to clean up all the blood and body parts that would have resulted from the mass shooting and three bombs that were said to have been detonated.[1] At present, the death toll is reported at 42, with 239 injured.

This would be a Herculean feat, requiring hundreds of specialized workers trained in biohazard cleanup, outfitted in safety gear, utilizing highly technical equipment under specific protocols – in order to deal properly with the hazardous waste. According to the World Health Organization, both “infectious waste” and “pathological waste” are considered hazardous and require special treatment. These include “waste contaminated with blood and other bodily fluids, …waste from autopsies, …human tissues, organs or fluids, body parts” and various pharmaceuticals and toxic materials.[2]

However, nothing of this sort is seen in any of the photos or videos said to record the events following the attack. Also not seen is the tremendous amount of blood that witnesses report. This curious phenomenon is typical of other “mass shootings” and “terrorist attacks” such as the recent “massacre” at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.[3]

According to Diana Eltner, 29, a Swiss psychologist who was flying through Istanbul:

There were little babies crying, people shouting, broken glass and blood all over the floor. It was very crowded, there was chaos. It was traumatic.[4]

Judith Favish, who was heading to South Africa, said she had seen “blood everywhere near the entranceway.” And in the words of Eylul Kaya, 37, who was with her one-year-old child:

There were blood splatters everywhere. I covered my boy’s eyes and we ran out.[5]

However, there is very little blood to be seen in the images released. This includes the expanse of floor that surrounded one of the alleged attackers, who was supposedly downed by a shot from the authorities, seen in a video seconds before he blew himself up.[6]

The absence of blood surely made the clean-up easier. In fact, it seems to have been very straightforward. According to a ludicrous statement by CNN:

As passengers at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport waited to board their flights Wednesday, workers picked up shattered glass and washed away blood that was barely dry.[7]

Many more anomalies have emerged, such as confusion regarding the location of the shootings and bombings in the airport, reports of up to seven attackers, and conflicting accounts by witnesses, most of whom say they did not actually see the attacks. Some witnesses confirmed the story, however, such as Paul Roos, 77, from South Africa, who said he saw one of the gunmen “randomly shooting” in the departure hall from a distance of 50 meters:

He was wearing all black. His face was not masked… We ducked behind a counter but I stood up and watched him. Two explosions went off shortly after one another… He turned around and started coming toward us. He was holding his gun inside his jacket. He looked around anxiously to see if anyone was going to stop him and then went down the escalator… We heard some more gunfire and then another explosion, and then it was over.[8]

A brave man, Paul Roos, and a lucky one indeed.

Supposed victims are seen lying around, with no one attending to them or rushing them to the hospital. This weird concept is found in other recent “terrorist attacks” in the US and abroad, including the Brussels Airport “massacre” of March 22, 2016, with which this new attack has been compared in the media. Not only are the victims unnoticed and unrealistic, but in both cases the gunmen arrived at the airports via taxi, and the most pronounced visual evidence is not the sight of “carnage” but the proliferation of ceiling tiles and shattered glass.

The attack on the Brussels Airport has been analyzed and deemed a staged event, used to incriminate ISIS and strike fear into the populace over the westward advance of “Islamic jihad.”[9] The new Istanbul attack is being pinned on ISIS as well, and shows every indication of being staged for the same purpose. Although there is no real evidence for the accusation, former US Ambassador to Turkey (and Iraq), James Jeffrey, has no doubt. Making the rounds of the networks, Jeffrey has called for more boots on the ground, and more support, for the battle against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

This is almost certainly an ISIS attack. The sophistication of it, the selection of a target, an international terminal, the use of suicide bombers – that has all of the earmarks of ISIS. They’ve launched four attacks in Turkey over the last year. They’re ever more at odds with the Turkish government. And I’m almost certain that when this all clears out, we’ll point the finger at ISIS…[10]

But this points the finger at the US and its allies, who fund and control the Islamic State.[11]

  1. When the ” terrorist ” blows himself up after being shot and his Kalashnikov rifle ” long gun ” goes flying all we see is the grainy footage then BOOM and what appears to be blood covering the lens. Highly suspicious !

  2. Standard procedure: ceiling tiles all over the place.
    The cleanup company did a hell of a job, did they ever let some sort of forensic team investigate the place? No?

    1. Create Islamophobia so the really nefarious things done by the elites are shunted aside the typical news day. The immediate sequela to 911 was the damnation of Islam, its intended effect. How much legislation is furtively passed during these episodes? Trade security for safety? With a compliant press, despite a compliant press, it appears more and more people are aware of government malfeasance.
      Look up Paul Craig Roberts’ take on the Brexit phenomenon. The truth spoken by a truthful man, something we never see from DC. Orwell, you magnificent bastard, I read your book.

  3. These people seem to be sparing no expense (shutting down an entire airport for 4½ hours). Also, note the double mention of “baby” in the narrative.

  4. Excellent work! Thank you for the research Ms. Lee!!!

    I would only add that this event adds more plausibility to Mr. Steele’s assertion that Israel might have been involved in the Orlando event. I initially dismissed their involvement as unlikely, but I would draw readers’ attention to recent news reports of “closer ties” between Netanyahu and Erdogan.

    Also, as Turkey is part of NATO, we mustn’t rule out that alliance as providing the operational base from which to launch such false flag attacks. As I’m sure we’re all aware, Operation Gladio was of NATO provenance.

    And how does BREXIT play in (if at all)? I would just mention that my initial reaction regarding BREXIT was to remember France’s exit from NATO long ago. That in itself is a rather odd episode in history. [Did France ever REALLY leave NATO? Or was it a PR campaign for the sake of the French public with no substantive change in operational relations?]

    One more thing…

    The Orlando event was supposedly the first time Facebook rolled out its “safe status” feature (or whatever it’s called). I happened to have a friend in proximity to both the Orlando and Istanbul events. I mention this only to confirm that this new feature is apparently here to stay. And that it reinforces the “reality” of these spectacles.


  5. Further to my previous comment. AFatal Traffic Accident takes longer to invstigate and clear. An insult to a persons intelligence. Sick of this BS.

    1. Excellent point.

      I’ve not studied the Turkey event to express an opinion as to whether it was real or theater. But in 2013 at LAX, Paul Anthony Ciancia (that’s 2 ‘CIA’s in his last name) allegedly killed 1 TSA officer and wounded 2 other TSA agents around 9:30 AM Friday in Terminal 3. It was not until 1:00 PM Saturday that Terminal 3 was open, that’s roughly 27 hours.

      That was 1 dead, and 3 injured (including the alleged perpetrator). No explosions.

      We are comparing how things are done in the USA to Turkey. Which might be comparing apples to oranges. But 4.5 hours almost seems impossible regardless if it was real or theater.

      Note: Paul has not gone to trial yet. The trial has been delayed multiple times. It currently is scheduled for this August, almost three years after the event.

      1. Kevin,
        There’s Nothing to study. All they showed was some super grainy B&W video from one of their $5,000.00 Digital Color Cameras…..

        Cameras don’t work during FF’s but if they do they have the Quality of an old B&W Tube camera from the 1970’s era

  6. Another “Aloha Snack Bar” !!! event all packaged up neat and tidy.

    I`m assuming Turkey hired the same bio-hazard company that the EAM Episcopal Church used. Just another Vaudeville event with fireworks and wait for that iconic photo.. Ooh ! I can’t wait.

    Joint Base Andrews Under Lockdown After Report of Active Shooter
    Base had planned active shooter exercise for 9 a.m.; during exercise, first responders received report of active shooter..
    How Stupid Can This Get??
    Now they say:Active Shooter Report at Joint Base Andrews Called Unfounded
    All-clear given after someone mistook active shooter drill for real thing.
    Wait a minute, you said the DRILL was at 9:00am and Real Shooter was Blasting Away at 8:30 am BEFORE the scheduled Drill. Pure BS and Drudge Reported it so you Called it Off. Jerks
    They Changed the Story But Left the Old URL in Place…

    Joint Base Andrews said it had planned an active shooter exercise for 9 a.m., but around the same time, first responders received reports of an “real-world active shooter situation” at the Malcolm Grow Medical Facility. The base says it investigating the incident as an ongoing active shooter situation.

    According to Stars and Stripes, the Pentagon said there was a “barricade situation” on the third floor of the medical facility.

    From Twitter Acct
    Joint Base Andrews

    JBA is currently on lockdown due to a report of an active shooter. All personnel are directed to shelter in place. More info as it comes.

    @jpcamp24 @RealJonBallard @wiznips3 @JBA_NAFW So the military had to call 911?

    1. As with all the questionable active shooter events being rapid fired at us of late, the few initial stories don’t make a lick of sense.

      I like your theory, Ric, as to the Drudge story release and incongruous timelime being the reason the “drill” had to be called off.

      Now let Dachsie posit a theory as to why they had to get a distraction event going at the hospital so that the hospital could be in lockdown.

      These destraction events when the original scam gets busted and cancelled could be said to be the plotters’ “Plan B”. But really a lot of Plan B stories do not involve much physical rearranging of sets and players, but rather consist 99 percent of just throwing out a new set of lies for the media to feed the masses. Having sets of Plan B lie scripts are easy peasy and can be totally off-the-shelf ready to go.

      The original “drill” planned to happen on the main part of Andrews AFB was known about in advance of the drill by the Malcolm Grow Medical Facility. The medical facility made some elaborate preparations throughout that hospital to get the set in place for the play-out of the drill multiple fake injuries. No reporters or anyone else could be allowed in the hospital after the drill was called off because the hospital could obviously be observed to have made elaborate preparations in advance of the execution of fake shooting event, so they had to resurrect the active shooter role player to give time for the hospital to remove all traces of having known in advance that they were going to have to look like they were ready for and involved in “saving many lives.”

      (I am still confused whether it is ” JBA”, i.e., the entire base or whether it is the medical facility only that is on lockdown.

      There are scads of humans on that AFB so get out that big stack of gag order forms pronto!


      “Officials at Joint Base Andrews did not find an active shooter, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press.

      The base was put on lockdown around 9 a.m. Thursday morning after reports of an active shooter surfaced. More than an hour later, on its official Twitter account, the base delivered a message of “All Clear,” adding that the lockdown has been lifted, except for the Malcolm Grow Medical Facility.”

      wonder why the Medical Facility is still on lockdown?

      Hope my bug zapper is working.

  8. Reblogged this on The PPJ Gazette and commented:

    You’d think Americans would get a clue…..unfortunately they are more concerned with the Kardashians than they are about the propaganda and staged terror attacks. One question: since the FBI is infamous for staging terror plots and then foiling them just in the nick of time……..wouldn’t that make them domestic terrorists?

  9. Interesting, Dr. K of, of all people, seems to think that people actually died at this one. Mossad to blame, however. Film at eleven.

    1. I have very much appreciated the work of Dr. K over the years, especially regarding 0-11.

      However on this Istanbul airport event, he fails the logic test. His reasoning seems to go something like this.

      Dr. K. has determined that there were victims who were Muslims. “It does not make any sense that faithful Muslims would slaughter other Islamic people, innocents in an airport, especially during the holy month of Ramadhan.” Therefore, the event was real and there were real victims and real bombs and explosions.

      I almost choked when I read this statement.

      “Categorically, the Qur’aan bans the slaughter of the innocent. It also bans terrorism, tyranny, and oppression.”

      The Islamic nations do not appear to have been involved in their historical kinds of violent marauding in the last several decades but their religion, nevertheless, is based in violence.

      I agree that Islamic nations have little or no record perpetraing false flag events such as King David Hotel and the World Trade Center.

      The neocon-controlled nations of the world, all except Iran, Russia and China that is, have mass murdered millions of innocent Islamic people in the Middle East.

      Christians must tell the whole truth always about these false events and about any people groups who are being used in them.

      It isn’t that Muslims are incapable of terrorist acts, it is just that in this event there is absolutely no evidence that I know of so far that indicates the official story of the Istanbul event is true.

      1. Here is my departure comment to Dr. K and his disinfo site.


        February 9, 2015 at 12:28 pm

        Dougster, Dr. K has told us repeatedly to PROOVE it! So we try to prove to him it is a hoax then he tells us “ENOUGH” as if we’re children. I make a personal observation that the “city” and highways are eerily quiet and empty and he told me my nonsense will NOT be tolerated. He says all comments and opinions are welcome. Evidently they are not. This so called truth site does not welcome opinions or evidence other than what the Doc says is true. He says it happened and don’t you dare disagree with him or he’ll assault you.
        I’m reminded of when he called James a troll, fool and someone else called him a liar last year over that ridiculous hoax with the “dead” reporter and ambulances in Palestine and ran James off.
        I too am done here. After much thought I don’t want to be anywhere where my opinions, observations and posts are assaulted. Dr. K respects no one who disagrees with him.
        And it seems kind of odd that your posts seem so similar to things Dr. K would say.
        As far as my comments getting more and more bizarre and my comment about what I perceived to be an empty city is trying to be contrary? I hardly think I am the bizarre and contrary one here. Someone is full of ego and pride and I don’t believe it is me.
        I should have left when James did.

        1. I had an inner sense that I should never post at nodisinfo for the very reasons you tell us. I am glad to receive confirmation of my suspicions. There are a few other sites that routinely act this same way. The environment for finding truth is not to be found on such sites.

        2. I’m so glad I saved that for just this purpose. If you like I will post the whole article with comments and people can read for themselves what a snake he is. Many of us posted vid after vid PROOVING what a hoax TransAsia was and he would not acknowledge his error.

        3. Elfmom, I would like to read it but I am not sure this is the thread to post it in or if it would be allowed.
          I believe you one hundred percent about him. I guess I kind of picked up on some irrational kind of dogmatism in his articles about various events. Though he does always seem to have good photos right after events and does make some good comments.

          There is a site called MostHolyFamilyMonastery with “Brothers” Michael and Peter Dimond and they call people who post something they do not like with comments like…


          There are only a few posters left as people get on to this kind of game very quickly. Is it about truthful reasonable discussion or not?

  11. I just got Zapped again in Margaritaville.
    Some people say that it is Word Pres to Blame, But I know…(horns) It’s the NSA.
    C’mon James, Free My Comment. Unless you like Locusts and Sh!t….

  12. This attack was clearly NOT aimed at maximum casualties: the two explosions caught on CCTV injured nobody, and it’s not even clear they were suicide bombs. Real suicide bombers explode themselves in the midst of a crowd, certainly not alone in hallway after everybody has run away. Same for the gunmen: in the footage we’ve been provided, they don’t shoot anybody.

    Most likely explanation: this was a ‘warning’ addressed at Erdogan not to cooperate with Putin. Remember the attack has happened right during the current Turkish-Russian rapprochement. Thus, the attack was probably organized or commissioned by the US or NATO. The message: you will pay a high price if you don’t do what we want you to do.

    In this sense, it was a ‘false flag’ or proxy operation. It was NOT a genuine attack e.g. by Kurdish militia or ‘angry Daesh members’ who wanted to complain about lacking support. And it was certainly not commissioned by Erdogan himself (prior attacks may have been, to get pretense to attack the Kurds).

  13. Yep. Total false flag! Nobody died! Nobody ever dies! Everything’s a false flag! Even the false flags are false flags! Sheesh.
