Heartless right-wing knuckle-dragger here to take the bullet, in the service of giving you the truth.
As reported this morning by Vanessa Altin, John Hall, Jenny Stanton and Emine Sinmaz in The Daily Mail, Abdullah Kurdi and his family were living safely in Istanbul, Turkey, where there is no war. According to reports, they were originally from Syria. It is not reported when or how they migrated from Syria to Turkey. An aunt in British Columbia claims they were denied asylum to settle in Canada earlier this year.
