Each day offers another example of the benefits and deficits of modern technology and the forces of those in charge of handling snooping in a country. Prime Minister Recep Erdogan has been engaged in a crusade to rid the nation of Turkey of police or judges or prosecutors who are honest. The bad guys are on his side since they protect us from those seeking to end graft and corruption. Erdogan has removed hundreds of police, prosecutors and judges from their assignments and sent them out to places where they cannot carry out anti-corruption activities. New recording published on February 24 have the prime minister of Turkey informing his son Bilal to get rid of all the stolen money as soon as possible. He refers to 2.2 billion Turkish lira and wants the boy to clean out all accounts so that no one can find the money.
Prime Minister Erdogan has now wrapped himself in the cloak of victimhood. He warns the nation that if police can wire tap his phones or hack into his computers they can do the same for all. This anti-corruption program now means “no privacy for families.” In other words, the issue of the day is wire tapping and focusing on stealing money simply diverts attention away from the real issues of the day. I guess this is an interesting approach when you are charged with stealing money.
