Obama to Erdogan: US Will Help Find Coup Plotters
In First Post-Coup Meeting, Obama Says Coup ‘Terrible’

Presidents Barack Obama and Recep Tayyip Erdogan met face-to-face today for the first time since the failed July coup in Turkey, providing for a somewhat awkward side-story to the G20 summit in China. Obama sought to reassure Erdogan of his support, and committed to help bring those involved in the coup to justice.
This has been an enormously touchy subject between the US and Turkey, with Erdogan seeking the extradition of a high-profile cleric from the United States, who he has accused of masterminding the coup. Expressing outrage at US reticence, Erdogan and other Turkish officials have suggested that the US was involved in the coup.

You’d think, at the end of his term, he just keep the “ship of state” steady for the next “captain”?
In any event, it’s not the USA’s President to “help” a foreign nation.
And, there certainly enough chatter that it was Erdogan’s “false flag” operation to discredit his opponents and ensure his position.
Also, he’s been taking Turkey away from its secular past and to the Islamic fundamentalists.
So, BHO should be like the Swiss and MYOB!
