Was US Involved in the Coup Attempt in Turkey?

Legendary foreign affairs correspondent Eric Margolis suggests it might have been.

He tweeted yesterday:
And then tweetd today:


  1. The coup was poorly planned and amateurish. With the current leadership we should view Turkey as a hostile country that sympathizes with Islamic terrorists. Yet President Obama supports the current Turkish government.

  2. This is an astonishingly successful power play by Erdogan. The Muslim country with NATO's largest army holds the US Air Force hostage at Incirlik! Their ransom: surrender an innocent man to the Sultan's justice. Obama himself must kiss the ring.

    This feels like the Reichstag Fire meets the occupation of the Rhineland, but with nukes.

    What are the market and monetary implications???
