Assuming the U.S. did aid the PKK, how much U.S. aid and subsidy was sent to Turkey at the same time?
There is at least as much evidence that Kurds were victims of other U.S. priorities as there is to support any theories the U.S. supported Kurds.

NATO distributions to Turkey ceased in the 90s.
US and European support for the PKK (in contrast to the Kurds) is well documented. Whether it was foolish or not is another question. The result is Turks doubting the US..
