After coup, Turkey holds 1,500 U.S. soldiers HOSTAGE while Obama…

The attempted military coup in Turkey may be over — with President Erdogan back and seemingly holding a firm grip on power once again. However, the trouble is not over for some of our troops in Turkey.

As The Right Scoop reports (H/T Mark Levin):

Erdogan, the despotic ruler of Turkey, appears to be holding 1,500 U.S. soldiers hostage at Incirlik air base in an attempt to pressure Obama to hand over his political opponent who was exiled to Pennsylvania. Erdogan claims that he ordered and organized the failed coup last night.

And where is President Obama? Three guesses and the first two don’t count.

I guess if you’re gonna let terrorists kill 4 Americans, another 1,500 is just a statistic.

No doubt if Turkey was holding a single deserter (Bowe Bergdahl) rather than 1,500 active troops, President Obama would get right on the matter and offer up a handful of choice terrorists from the few still remaining at Guantanamo Bay.

The good news bad news is Secretary of State John Kerry is on the case. And apparently, Secretary Kerry just got off the phone with Turkey. The following tweet kinda sums it right up.

No word yet on the latest status of the troops, but apparently Kerry told Turkey they better free them up right away.

Unfortunately, Secretary Kerry and President Obama haven’t given world leaders much reason to listen to their words, though we certainly pray they do in this case. And fast.

No doubt the Obama administration will thank Turkey for its hospitable treatment of our soldiers after all is said and done, just like it did Iran after it detained our 10 sailors.
