WASHINGTON (TSAT) - The CIA Director William J. Burns met with a well-known Gulenist and basketball player Enes Kanter Freedom in Washington during the WHite House's Correspondent dinner..

 

According to Turkish media Freedom is linked to a terrorist group of the US-based Fethullah Gülen, chief of the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), who is behind numerous human rights violations in Turkey.

 

Gulen has lived in self-exile in the state of Pennsylvania since 1999.

 

“Had a great conversation with the Director of @CIA William J. Burns. Thank you for your friendship,” Freedom Tweeted on Sunday. He also posted his meeting picture along with Burns. 

 

Freedom was invited by the White House to a Correspondent dinner. Where according to him he also meets with some journalists.

 

However, Freedom didn’t disclose more details about his discussion with the CIA chief. But he is reportedly an active member of FETO and has close ties with Gulen. 

 

The CIA Director meeting was criticized by the American analysts and said how he can publically meet with a Gulenist who have close links with FETO. 

 

“Many Turks believe that the CIA supported the attempted coup that the Gulen movement launched in 2016. For the CIA director to have himself photographed with the most prominent Gulenist in America is, to put it mildly, unwise,” Michael Doran is an American analyst wrote on Twitter. 

 

Many Turkish citizens also strongly reacted to the CIA chief meeting with Gulen terror group key leader in the White House's function.

 

“We do not believe the coup was supported by the CIA. We do know it is planned and tried by the CIA,” Sibel Yigit said. 

 

 

FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the July 15, 2016 defeated coup which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured, according to Anadolu Agency. 

Turkey also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.

In August 2016, Kanter tweeted that he would sacrifice his mother and father for Gulen, sparking controversy among his fans and Turkish people, according to report.

 

“Not just believe we all know that clearly. USA always defends Turkish enemies where ever in the world. (Ypg-pkk-feto vs) are we really NATO allies? No, Not sure mate,” another Turkish Ayse Kendim questioned. 

 

 

In January 2021, The Wall Street Journal Newspaper published Enes's article that caused huge protests in the US as the Turkish people living there held protests against the newspaper in New York. 

 

In the opinion piece titled "Turkish Democracy Isn’t a Lost Cause," Enes Kanter, a supporter of the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), accused Turkey of being an "autocracy" and praised US sanctions on the country over Ankara's purchase of a Russian defense system, according to AA. 

In his article, Kanter, the so-called adopted son of Fetullah Gulen, who is the mastermind of a 2016 coup attempt in Turkey, insults Turkish democracy and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

 

Last month, Pakistan's former Prime Minister Imran Khan also accused the US of toppling his government in the South Asian country.

 

Khan claimed that a conspiracy was planned in Washington to oust him from power because of his independent foreign policy and visit to Russia.

 

In February, Khan visited Moscow and hold a three-hour-long meeting with President Putin.

According to Khan, Russia had agreed with him to provide oil, gas, and wheat at a 30% concession rate.  

However, the US denied Khan’s accusations.
