DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 9, 2017, 6:31 PM (IDT)

Mike Pompeo, director of the CIA, arrived Thursday in Turkey for a visit that will include meetings with President Tayip Erdogan and Hakan Fidan, head of the country’s MIT intelligence service. Pompeo and senior Turkish officials will discuss military and intelligence cooperation in northern Syria against ISIS, US support for the Kurdish rebels, and Turkey’s request for the extradition of exiled opposition leader Fethullah Gulen who Ankara claims was behind the country’s attempted military coup in July 2016. Pompeo is making his first trip abroad since becoming CIA director. 

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
