Washington Police chief Peter Newsham said 11 people and one police officer had been injured in the violence which took place on ‘Embassy Row’. The Turkish embassy released a statement blaming the Kurdish PKK. ‘The demonstrators began aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the president .
The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense and one of them was seriously injured.’ McCain laid blame directly at the feet of Turkish officials. He said: ‘This is Erdogan’s security detail .

FPOS I Designated Defensive Marksman. Surveillance Blah blah I could go on. So I have some Adhoc work. Few bits for Ronin, few of my own bits I have found and little surveillance work for a investigators firm. But nothing even remotely substantial. Keep getting the same response from all the big companies *minimum 1 – 2 years commercial experience Iraq or Afghan.* Networking like F34King crazy but nothing yet. Now I’m finally swallowing my pride and reaching out to the community to see if anyone could put onto a lead (quietly). Or even go for a beer and pass some contacts on. Lets see if this group can still help each other out.
I had an old username long time ago so not I’m not a total sprog. Constructive comments and PM’s welcome. The grumpy keyboard warriors amongst you…
Cheers all GS
