Turkish official: Turkey had planned for a ground incursion in Syria as far back as June 2015. It was delayed because of the United States lack of confidence [in the idea] and the Turkish army [being infiltrated with Gulenists/Coupists]. The United States didn't find our plan feasible because they had believed the number of rebels wasn't enough while the Turkish military had stalled the operation as previous coupist commanders of the Turkish Army Special Ops had came up with plenty of excuses.
