Joel’s Turkish crisis update

  • 461 men, women, and children died yesterday and overnight in Turkey
    • 17 police officers killed in Turkey’s capital
    • Obama slammed for supporting dictator
    •  Coup failed despite this New York Times observation, “As the insurrection unfolded, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was not heard from for hours. He finally addressed the nation from an undisclosed location, speaking on his cellphone’s FaceTime app — a dramatic scene that seemed to suggest a man on the verge of losing power.”
    • President Obama to convene National Security Council Saturday afternoon
    • Haaretz: “One of Turkish Coup’s leaders is a former military atache to Israel.”

 U.S. Secretary of State gave a brief non-informational press briefing

Secretary of State gave a brief non-informational press briefing later this evening Washington, D.C. time. The President, I do not believe, has been heard from yet. However, Sky News has reported on a statement from the President. I will look into it.
