Wikileaks is planning to release files that show Turkey has helped
al-Qaida in Iraq, according to London-based daily Al-Hayat. The
newspaper also reported that the US helped the PKK, a Kurdish rebel
organization.

One of the documents, a US military report, reportedly charges
Turkey with failing to control its borders, because Iraqi citizens
residing in Turkey provided al-Qaida with supplies to build bombs,
guns and ammunition.

Other documents show that the US has supported the PKK, which has
been waging a separatist war against Turkey since 1984 and has been
classified by the State Department as a terrorist organization since
1979. The US military documents call the PKK "warriors for freedom and
Turkish citizens", and say that the US set free arrested PKK members
in Iraq. The documents also point out that US forces in Iraq have
given weapons to the PKK and ignored the organization's operations
inside Turkey, Jerusalem Post reported.
