Interesting. Conflicting reports. Evidently Turkish govt is trying to
paint a "we handled it already" picutre, but that may not be the case.
Let's see...

Pretty sure not, although they have been the conduit for mountains of
weapons from Libya and Ukraine into Syria - and Ukraine had a lot of
USSR military gear.

But I think any nukes got handled shortly after the collapse of USSR -
one of the rare examples of co-operation between North America and
Russia, to handle the ex-soviet nuclear arsenal. Thankfully.

And besides, the rat line from Libya and Ukraine has been run by the
CIA, not Turkey. Still absolutely shameful of course...
