Erdogan taunts Obama over coup attempt in Turkey

Please meet our request (on Gulen’s extradition) if we (Turkey and US) are strategic partners. I asked you (Obama) previously either to deport him or surrender him to Turkey. I told you that he is considering the coup d’etat, but you didn’t listen.

AsianTimes: The Turkish President Recep Erdogan’s sensational demand on Saturday to US President Barack Obama to extradite the Islamist preacher Fetullah Gulen living in exile in Pennsylvania does not come as surprise. It had to happen sooner or later.

But then, Erdogan has chosen to speak publicly on such a highly sensitive issue instead of using the confidential channels of communication.

Any long-time observer of Erdogan and his political personality can make out that he is taunting Obama within the week of the NATO summit in Warsaw.  more

  1. Erdogan thinks Barry’s a punk – accurate assessment. Hopped up on a despot high, Erodogan wants Barry to take notes on how to quickly destroy a nation.
    And since when has Turkey been considered an ally in recent years. Only with the Obama administration is it possible.

  2. I can see Obama granting erdogan’s demand. He’s caved to every other muslim theocracy. Why wouldn’t he?

  3. It would sweet to see BO turn Gulen over to Erdogan.

    Erdogan did the fake coup just to force BO’s hand on “extradition”.
