CIA Gives Refuge to Multi-billionaire Fethullah Gulen, the 'Most Dangerous Islamist' in the World, and Even Provides High Level Officials to Attest for Him
Gulen wields an astonishing and completely undemocratic and unaccountable influence in Turkey: The good jobs, the better pay, the promotion prospects all are dependent on your dedication to a shadowy Islamic network with its headquarters based in Pennsylvania. [Source]

The Progressive Press - What could be the connection between the Boston Marathon bombing suspects’ uncle Ruslan, an ex-CIA Fuller and a Turkish Imam named Fethullah Gulen?
Turkish preacher named Fethullah Gülen has been living in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania since 1999. Despite not having an education goes beyond the 5th grade, he has several hundred educational organizations such as K–12 schools, universities, and language schools (mostly English) that have been established around the world, mainly Central Asia, Caucasus, Balkans, and including U.S.A.
How did he receive his US residency status while he was ‘wanted’ by the –then- Turkish Government, is still a mystery. Now, this man owns and operates charter schools in USA –through various foundations– despite the fact his Madrasas were outlawed in countries like Russia and Uzbekistan. His schools were under investigation in the Netherlands. Plus, the origin of his immense wealth, which he used to open and operate these schools all over the world, is unclear.
A former CIA station chief in Kabul and the author of “The Future of Political Islam,” Graham Fuller was one of Gulen’s official references in Gulen’s Green Card application, along with another ex-CIA George Fidas and former U.S. ambassador to Turkey Morton Abromovitz, after Gulen rushed to U.S.A. from Turkey in 1999. It is curious how and why an Imam from Turkey had this sort of connections in U.S.A.
Ex-CIA Graham Fuller who served 15 years as an intelligence officer in various countries of the Middle East and Asia, wrote a book about Turkey, titled “The New Turkish Republic: Turkey as a Pivotal State in the Muslim World”, published in 2008. In his book, he fervently promotes the idea of “Moderate Islam”. The problem is, the man he helped escape to U.S.A. by providing references, Fethullah Gulen, was anything but a “moderate.”
Fuller was deeply involved in Afghanistan in the 1980s, encouraged the Reagan administration to begin arming Iran against Iraq during their slugfest, and suggested to the Clinton administration that it should use Muslims to further US interests in Central Asia.
As a side note here, I wanted to mention that Muller’s daughter Samantha A. Fuller was married to Ruslan Tsarnaev. Yes, the uncle of the two Chechen brothers who are suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon. The couple divorced sometime before 2004. Interestingly, Ruslan worked for companies connected to Halliburton, the multinational juggernaut run by Dick Cheney before he became Vice President of the United States. He was also a “consultant” for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in the former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan. Russia barred USAID from its soil in late 2012, alleging USAID together with CIA was attempting to influence the internal political processes in the country.
Morton Abramowitz, the other reference for Gulen’s Green Card, was also deeply involved with Afghan mujahedin and Kosovo rebels. Currently, he is a Council Member (Senior Fellow) of US Asia Pacific Council.
Gulen was a staunch enemy of secularism in Turkey. He pushed for an authoritarian Islamic state. In fact, a Wikileaks wire reveals how Istanbul Chief Rabbi Ishak Haleva tried to warn USA of this man’s activities, saying he is a “radical Islamist” whose moderate message cloaks a more sinister and radical agenda.
In 2010, a retired Turkish Intelligence Chief, Osman Nuri Gundes, published his memoir titled “Close Witness to Revolutions and Anarchy” where he claimed Fethullah Gulen’s worldwide Islamic movement based in Pennsylvania has been providing cover for the CIA since the mid-1990s, and that in the 90s, the movement “sheltered 130 CIA agents” at its schools in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan alone.
Central Asia’s Islamisation has started with Turkey; Gulen having deep ties with the current Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Erdoğan was elected in 2003, despite having been banned from holding office for his anti-secular, Islamist views and actions in Turkey. Gulen openly and financially supported Erdogan’s election.
Today, Turkey has over 85,000 active mosques, one for every 880 citizens—compared to one hospital for every 54,000 citizens— ( 1389 hospitals) the highest number per capita in the world with 90,000 imams. And Erdogan enjoys his reign over the country since 2003 with the US’s blessings.
Why would USA give refuge to this Islamist and even provide high level officials to attest for him?

Turkey (Asia Manor) is located right in the middle of Europe, Asia and Middle East. Old Soviet bloc countries in Central Asia have two common grounds with Turkey: ethnicity and religion. Many of them are Turkic and Muslim. Turkey being a NATO member for 61 years and on the side of U.S.A. since the Korean War of 1950s, has proven to be a trusted ally to US, willing to do whatever it takes to further American interests.
Turkey is to U.S.A. in the Central Asia is what Israel is to U.S.A. in the Middle East. Central Asia (with its vast natural resources, including a lot of oil) is being turned into another Middle East by Islamists with the covert support of U.S.A., against the Godless China. Not only because Central Asia is rich in natural resources and oil, but also geopolitically is a great buffer zone next to China and Russia…
"And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I [John] saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." - Revelation, Chapters 15-16, KJVPlus, ‘War on Terror’ excuse can be used to invade more and more countries as we did in Afghanistan and Iraq. We did not invade those countries to squash terror; that was the excuse used for the public, not the real intent. And that same excuse can and will be used again and again for more invasions or interventions.
Therefore it is in the best interest of U.S.A. to fuel it, manage it and use it as needed.

Turkish Invitations - Gulenists' campaign contributions to Hillary Clinton likely played a role.
Citizens Against Special Interest Lobbying in Public Schools
Gulenists incessantly advertise Bill Clinton's speech at the Third Annual Friendship Dinner organized by the Turkish Cultural Center of New York (a Gulenist organization) at the Waldorf Astoria on September 25, 2008.
The video of Clinton's brief speech has been publicized on the internet by several Gulenist organizations, and has become one of the Gulenists' favorite defense weapons. Whenever anything critical of the Gulen Movement or Gulen charter schools has appeared in the press, Gulenists have touted this speech as a full-fledged endorsement that they insist must instantly dispel any doubts ever raised about Fethullah Gulen and his followers. The weight that Gulenists put on this speech seems quite out of proportion to its actual content: Clinton mentions Gulen only once in the entire speech and never praises him directly.
Here is what Clinton actually said:
"Good evening. In this interdependent world, the fates of people on opposite sides of the globe are increasingly linked, and it’s critical to keep the lines of communication open as much as we can. That’s why the communication between the Turkish-American community and the people of Turkey is so important. It’s important to ensure your vibrant cultural heritage, to make sure it continues to thrive and inspire, and build a bridge that reaches over all faiths and creeds, and the ocean. By being here tonight, you are contributing to lasting peace and security at home and abroad. You’re contributing to the promotion of the ideals of tolerance and interfaith dialog, inspired by Fethullah Gulen, and his transnational social movement. You do it through your everyday lives, and you are truly strengthening the fabric of our common humanity, as well as promoting the ongoing cultural and educational ties that bind our world together. I want to thank you for your contributions to America, for your contributions to stronger Turkish-American relationships, and better understanding, and especially for your friendship to Hillary and to me."
And here is Ebru TV's highly inaccurate take on the speech (note that Ebru is a Gulenist media outlet):
"Bill Clinton's message was particular in which he praised prominent Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gulen's efforts in promoting education along with peace and dialogue and thanked him for his contributions to America and the world."
On youtube, the Turkish Cultural Center of New York has uploaded the video under the tagline "Bill Clinton: Fethullah Gulen's Contribution to the World," which is also quite misleading.
As far as we know, Clinton has not mentioned Gulen publicly since. While Gulenists would like us to believe that the prime motivating factor for Clinton's speech was a profound admiration for Fethullah Gulen's activities, we doubt this.
The presence of the President of Turkey, Abdullah Gul (who happens to be a close ally of Gulen) as well as a number of influential Turkish businessmen, may have contributed to the attraction of the event.
However, the most probable reason for Bill Clinton's attendance was the Gulenists' numerous contributions to Hillary Clinton's campaign. A sampling is given in the Table below. All these contributions came from individuals identified as Gulenist based on their affiliations with Gulenist organizations or schools. This list is far from complete, and only represents the contributions that we have identified to date.
