Per the Times the Turkish government seems to have regained the upper hand.
An odd US wrinkle:
Mr. Erdogan placed blame for the intrigue on the followers of Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim cleric living in exile in Pennsylvania, who was the president’s ally until a bitter falling out three years ago. Mr. Gulen’s followers were known to have a strong presence in Turkey’s police and judiciary, but less so in the military.
Speaking Saturday morning, Mr. Erdogan said, referring to Mr. Gulen: “I have a message for Pennsylvania: You have engaged in enough treason against this nation. If you dare, come back to your country.”
Pennsylvania - a swing state on two continents! I had no idea.
And, subject to the caveat that I know virtually nothing of Turkish politics, let me add this Game of Thrones notion - generals who were sympathetic to the goals of the coup but skeptics as to timing may have helped quash it, thereby positioning themselves as defenders of democracy and heroes of the nation. That may be helpful if they later decide to undertake a coup of their own, although Erdogan, not born yesterday, may see right through that gambit and slap them in prison on trumped-up charges a few months from now. Byzantine intrigue in Turkey? More surprises!
