While asking RedHack, why the US Embassy staff was targeted? They reply was:
- To honor and in memory of Sinan Cemgil and to tell the US Gov one more time and their military “Go home Yankee.” ”Go home Yankee” was used by socialist back years ago to protest the military and politicians of US in Turkey. However, we this leak is not against the people of United States.
