NATO false flags in Ukraine [and elsewhere]: The debate

From the rush transcript:

Last month, US intel admitted actually NATO member Turkey had false flagged the attack, which killed some 1,400 civilians, to justify invasion. Not a single mainstream outlet reported it.

That sent me researching just to find out if it was more than I already knew. The following are links I read to double check things plus a little more (they open in new tabs):

You decide for yourself. I'm leaning way over on Sy Hersh's side of this whole thing mostly because of his track record of citing intelligence insiders and then the whole truth finally coming out substantiating Sy's reporting, over and over. Why would his sources suddenly become total garbage? It's not credible. They all would have to have been gotten to by the neocons within and without the Obama administration and completely turned just to false feed Sy Hersh. To what end?

Perhaps you'll imagine Sy Hersh has started making it all up as he goes along because his sources have all dried up. You'll have to prove that to me. I've seen such things happen before, but I wasn't buying the author's stories to begin with. They smelled. Sy's writing hasn't smelled. I've questioned his reasoning at times but always left him with the benefit of the doubt, reserved judgment, left myself open to being convinced.
