Coup Plot in Turkey?

"According to a letter written by the military officer who turned these documents in to prosecutors, the report, titled Information support work prepared by the junta, was only one of the many documents prepared by “the Information Support Department’s commissioned staff colonels Dursun Çiçek, Sedat Özüer, İlker Ziya Göktaş and Fuat Selvi … with the intent of directing public opinion under the auspices of then-General Staff Operations Commander Lt. Gen. Nusret Taşdeler with the support of several academics from universities and several politicians from the CHP [Republican People’s Party] administration, upon the order of Deputy Chief of General Staff Gen. Ergin Saygun.” The military officer explained that the document in Addendum B lacked signatures because it was sent electronically. Below is an English translation of excerpts from the document."
