Why Did A Turkish Paper Target Canada for a Smear?

Daily Sabah article alleges that Turkish security has detained an agent of the Canadian intelligence for having assisted three British girls for traveling to Syria to join the Islamic State.

But why?

    I was just asking this very question in the other post/thread.
    Why would Turkey go to these lengths?

      are we sure it is a false accusation? there have been many examples of foreign embassy employees making deals that are not in Canada’s best interests such as immigration fraud. How can we be sure that this employee didn’t help the Girls? A muslim employee is a muslim first and Canada’s best interests are probably not even considered

      • Good points, we’ll have to see what shakes out.

        A lot of our embassy staff are hired locally, I’ve seen that often enough. It could be he is the embassy dish washer or a driver or what ever and helped the girls

    • It seems a bit bizarre I agree,
