Commenting article: Turkey Urges U.S. to Extradite Cleric Blamed for Organising Coup Attempt

The relations between Turkey and the United States will be “inevitably affected” if Washington fails to grant Ankara’s request to extradite a cleric suspected of orchestrating the failed coup attempt in Turkey, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier this week that Washington would have to choose between Ankara and the movement of Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric living in exile in the U.S.

Turkey claims that Gulen is the mastermind of the abortive coup attempt on July 15 organized by his followers and his FETO group, to which Ankara refers as a terrorist organisation.

Actually Erogan needs to blame not the Turkish military but someone that will be appropriate sacrifice for the crowd. He needs the military that is why Gulen is the main enemy named.. Erdogan will rebuild his Islamic army with people from the Madrases but before that he needs to save the military structure in working condition.
