Do we know exactly how much involvement in Syria is related to Turkish activity?

Nest step, is something like this for both Iraq and Syria:

A bit OT but from your thread:

it looks like it was the French spooks who helped him to escape:

BBC Arabic and French TV

Ooops

Just got it from BBC

Key Syrian defector Gen Manaf Tlas has hinted that French secret agents helped him flee Syria in early July.

Colonel,

I just read on an Iranian site--hamsayeh.net--that Prince Bandar was indeed killed in a bomb blast in July. I know nothing of this site, merely Googled Bandar and got it.
Will you comment on this?

I don't know the truth of this. pl

Colonel, MR,

The article cited by the Persian site hamsayeh.net is the Chinese TV article (New Tang Dynasty (NTD) Television headquartered in NYC)

Colonel, MR,

And you also have the Aspen Times article that says (according to 'insiders'[U.S. State Dept. spokesman & WAPO's David Ignatiaus]so the Aspen Times asserts) that Prince Bandar is still alive.
http://www.aspentimes.com/article/20120824/NEWS/120829914/1077&ParentProfile=1058

So I guess that only Bandar's personal hair-dresser only knows for sure if the Prince's frizzy top is still growing or not.

He was seen at this meeting in August:

I can't seem to locate the picture of the Saudi delegates ( it was in one of the Arabic newspapers)

Bandar was photographed at a conference after he was supposedly assassinated.
