This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met yesterday with his Turkish counterpart, who would have us believe Turkey is still a U.S. ally. In fact, it is no more.

That’s a serious problem given Turkey’s strategic location, its membership in NATO, its control of an important U.S. base at Incirlik, and its access to sensitive American intelligence and technology. And, that problem is growing daily as Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan increasingly aligns his rabidly Sharia-supremacist government with our adversaries like Russia, Iran and China.

The United States can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to Erdogan’s hostility and even threats to us, our allies and interests. Unless and until that permanently ends, among other responses, we cannot deem Turkey a reliable recipient of our frontline F-35 fighters.
