Inexplicably, the US Ambassador in Ankara seems to have endorsed the ruling AKP party in Turkey’s upcoming elections. This is inexplicable because the AKP is Islamist, anti-American and antisemitic (but other than that, it’s a great party). My multiple choice question for you:
(1) Was this pure stupidity?
(2) Is Obama doing a favor for his new best friend, Erdogan, the Islamist, anti-American and antisemitic leader of the AKP?
(3) Is this an elaborate head fake that tries to trick an anti-America population into doing the opposite of what the Americans recommend (so that they’ll vote for the opposition party, not the American-recommended AKP)?
I’m inclined to favor choice number 2.
