Reader comment on item: Crisis in Turkey

Submitted by Mehmet Sagduyu (Turkey), Mar 3, 2010 at 11:53

Mr. Pipes

I am happy to read an unbiased article by a U.S. author. I want to know your opinion about the role of USA and their foreign policy in this crisis? I don't believe AKP can devise such a conspiracy theory by itself. They try to execute the plans prepared by their allies. Am I wrong?

Best Regards,

Mr.Mehmet Sagduyu Izmir, TURKEY

Daniel Pipes replies:

From the time in early 2003 that George W. Bush welcomed Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to the Oval Office, the U.S. government has blundered vis-à-vis the AKP. I do not see Turkish Islamists needing to look to Washington to develop conspiracy theories; this is something they can produce quite well on their own.
