Apparently, villagers in a rural Turkish village found a kestrel that had a leg band labelled “24311 Tel Avivunia Israel.” The bird was brought to authorities who nicknamed the bird “Israeli Spy” and released the bird after x-raying to determine that the bird wasn’t carrying any spy devices. Clearly, the Turks were way too lax in investigating this spying bird.
Here’s a photo of a kestrel just so you know what kind of bird we’re talking about:
Think about it, would a bird necessarily have to have spy devices in order to spy for Israel? Hasn’t the bird got eyes? Can’t it hear? I didn’t see any mention that the Turks had bothered to interrogate the bird at all. Didn’t they even ask it what it had seen or heard, much less what it was prepared to report back to Israel?
The fact that they didn’t apparently even try to interrogate the kestrel suggests to me that the Turks aren’t really serious about their security. For heaven’s sake, man…at least as the bird a question or two.
