In many ways, what White has posted today from his Iraqi friend is what I've been waiting for. Especially the following:
"Natalie and I sat down and very carefully listened to [Caner's] so call Arabic speaking. We tried to see if maybe he was using any of the other languages that might be native to the Turkish Iraq border & was confusing it with Arabic. I can tell you this, he is not speaking Arabic, Turkish, Kurdish, Assryian/Chaldean, or Syryani/Syryoyo which are all languages that are spoken in that area."
