Turkey Blames U.S.-Based Muslim Cleric For Russian Envoy's Killing

Quote:
December 20, 2016

Turkey has informed the United States that it believes followers of the U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen were responsible for the assassination of Russia's ambassador in Ankara. The Turkish Foreign Ministry quoted Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu as telling U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in a phone conversation on December 20 that "Turkey and Russia know that behind the attack... there is FETO" -- an acronym for Gulen's organization.
Gullen's organization (dubbed Fetullahçı Terör Örgüt/FETÖ by the Erdogan regime) is a mainly secular movement. The Turkish gunman, Mevlut Mert Altintas, prattled on like an Islamic extremist after the assassination. Turkey's Erdogan is availing himself of every opportunity to solidify his authoritarian regime, court Putin and Russia's oil pipelines, and clamp down further of the Kurdish minority. Ankara has demanded that the US extradite Gullen, but Ankara has presented no evidence of any Gullen criminal activity.
