How do you get an ideological “Ally” to make a political move they are uncomfortable with?
You use leverage, heavy leverage….. It’s a Machiavellian Quid Pro Quo
But what leverage does President Obama have over current Turkish President, Erdogan?
What information would force Erdogan to make a move on Osama Bin Laden Jr? A move that Erdogan does not want to make hot make because his Islamist colleagues will not be happy. The answer is HERE.
It’s Machiavellian because both President Obama and President Erdogan are aligned both philosophically and ideologically.
TURKEY - Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law was arrested in Ankara by Turkish security forces after Washington allegedly informed Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) about his location, daily Milliyet reported today.
Suleyman M., son-in-law of former al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, was allegedly staying at a camp in Iran after the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center in 2001.
He entered Turkey using a fake Saudi Arabian passport. Daily Milliyet claimed that the United States learned Suleyman M. was in Ankara and informed MİT. Turkish security forces captured him at a hotel in Çankaya district of Ankara.
U.S. Navy SEALS killed al-Qaeda leader Bin Laden at his compound in Pakistan on May 4, 2011. Kuwait revoked Suleyman M.’s citizenship after the U.S. issued an arrest warrant for him on charges of involvement in terrorist activities.
A Turkish court decided to release Suleyman M. on the grounds that he had not committed any crimes other than entering the country with a fake passport. However, he was not released and was returned to the police department for extradition from the country. The daily also said Suleyman M. would be extradited back to Iran. The U.S. reportedly asked Turkey to give Suleyman M. to the U.S. for interrogation on alleged al-Qaeda activities. (link)
At least the Turkish Media understand the freedom continuum. As evidenced in this screen shot from the main Turkish media outlet, Hurriet Daily News. The Embassy blast was part of “far-left” militant ideology.
Communism, Marxism, Socialism, Fascism are on the far “LEFT” side of the freedom continuum, in that order, where government controls and restricts the individual. Nice to see a media outlet get it correct.
