Turkey’s Erdogan has been highlighted here numerous times. He is not to be trusted, he is a stealth Islamist and might even be a co-conspirator in the attack against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
Recently he called Israel a “terrorist state”, and yet supposedly Turkey is a primary U.S. ally in the region. Go Figure. But shockingly an AP reporter actually calls out the State Department on their silence.
(Full Story here) A spirited exchange between Associated Press reporter Matthew Lee and spokesperson Victoria Nuland marked the U.S. State Department’s daily briefing Monday on the continued violence between Israel and Hamas. Lee slammed Nuland for their silence on Israel in what the Administration has labeled “quiet diplomacy.” Lee concluded, “But you won’t stick up for your ally Israel when the Turks, another one of your allies, say that they’re engaged in terrorism in Gaza…” The exchange goes on for nearly three minutes, while Nuland is left defenseless against the charges of silence from the press pool.
