Spotlight on the Coalition: Turkey
Whatever Eritrea is giving us has got to be better than Turkey putting the airspace deal on hold
Turkey closed its airspace Friday, saying it would remain closed until the United States agreed to allow Turkish troops to move into northern Iraq.
At least we can borrow Pestilence from Eritrea and Famine from Ethiopia to go along with the War and Death we bring to the table. What's Turkey giving us? Not bases, not fly-over rights, not troops. Do they even support this war? Do they even "secretly" support it? Oh yeah, and Ari says today that the $28 billion is off the table
Q: One more on Turkey, sir. Given Turkey's inconsistent behavior, does the President still think it's entitled to the same billions of dollars worth of aid?
MR. FLEISCHER: Well, there's nothing new to report on that front. I've shared with you before about the total aid package that had previously been offered to the Turks, and that total package is not on the table.
