Turkey's Erdogan issues message to US: Hand over exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen

Source: CNN

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appeared to give the United States an ultimatum, demanding the extradition of the cleric he believes is behind the failed July 15 coup attempt.

The state-run Anadolu news agency reported that Erdogan had said the US had to choose between its relationship with Turkey and Fethullah Gulen, a former Erdogan ally who has been in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania for decades.

Turkey has requested his extradition, while Gulen denied involvement in the coup.

"Sooner or later the US will make a choice. Either Turkey or FETO," Erdogan said, in reference to the movement headed by Gulen.

6. The US should respond by demanding he hand over the turkish supporters of ISIS.

You know...

All the people who allowed ISIS to operate and recruit in Turkey for years and did nothing about it.

All the people who looked the other way and somehow didn't notice that ISIS is trucking tanks with crude oil across the turkish border.

All the people in Turkey who bought this crude oil from ISIS.

7. This old guy in the woods of PA managed a coup attempt?

In Turkey? Really? This old, sick man somehow coordinated an assassination attempt and a military assault. From his house in PA?

11. We will be taking the go fuck yourself Erdogan choice

Why is Turkey still in NATO? With Erdogan's new bromance with Putin? This isn't good guys. I know Turkey serves as a nice land buffer for Europe, but will it matter if Turkey ignores any future Russian aggression?

13. Board is so ignorant of the facts. US will hand over Gulen and Turkey is one

of the most important NATO allies.

14. I doubt it. Kerry has demanded proof. It has not been forthcoming.
