"Chivers at NY Times leaves out the meat: Turkish involvement with Jabhat An-Nusra"

"Chivers has this story just yesterday but totally fails to mention - as most of the US media is currently failing to mention (but for how long?) – that there are very serious and very disturbing reports (for just some here and the AFP story here) that in the major battles taking place along the Turkish-Syria border in and around Ras Al-Ain, that Jabhat an-Nusra – the designated terrorist group acording to the US – is being allowed, and perhaps aided, in bringing HEAVY WEAPONRY including tanks over from safe zones in Turkey to battle the supposedly PKK-affiliated kurds (and the bane of the Establishment here in Turkey)."
