Are you familiar with Sibel Edmonds?
She was a Turkish translator for the FBI around the early 2000's and has done an amazing job bringing forth the corruption of our foreign policy. Throughout the last couple of years she has discussed how the Gulen Movement is being funded by the CIA and others to spread throughout Eurasia and elsewhere and has long ago speculated that they would be funding a coup in Turkey.
I am no fan of Erdogan, as I think his ambitions and blatant terrorism has caused much chaos in the middle east, however I believe he has been used as a pawn of NATO/American interests and now that they are done with him, we will see him Gaddafied.
People really need to research Operation Gladio B. Talk about a freaking deep state, here is a long Q&A from Sibel and James Corbett!
And here is a great discussion on the current events in Turkey.

Personally, i think Erdogan engineered the "coup" himself to consolidate power, purge the Gulan supporters. Especially considering how "amateurishly" is was carried out.
