Of course it is, the US is behind every thing that ever happens anywhere in the world.

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

Yep. There has been 50,000 people arrest so far. He had to of had a list of people he would need to take out to grab complete power.

US involved? Or still running catch-up?

I think Erdogan's lust for a new Ottoman empire and a Turkish caliphate was behind the so-called coup and Russian intelligence thought US/NATO had a right to know about the planned capture of Incirlik Air Base. Kerry's visit to Moscow was because Russian intelligence had something to impart that US intelligence had little awareness of.

Well let's begin with this...what would be the end game for the US to be behind a coup of it's ally that is allowing the US to use their bases in the fight against ISIS?

Secondly if you think the US was behind this do you actually think it would have failed...the US would have made sure the president wasn't able to regain power...and the coup would have proceeded.

Third if you think the Turks would reopen airspace for the people behind the coup to use those bases to conduct military operations from you would be foolish to think that they would.

So now knowing this why is Turkey allowing the supposed country behind this to remain at the base and conduct military operations from it?

Simple answer they know the US wasn't behind it and because of that they are allowing the operations at the base to resume.

Always fun to speculate...but it's even more fun seeing actual facts.

You do understand that the reason Kerry was talking with Russia was because of Syria and had nothing to do with Turkey?

You do know the base was never in danger of being closed or held hostage from the US, it was closed because the base is where at least one military aircraft was taken from and used during the attempted coup?

The Turkish government locked it down until they could be sure everything was accounted for and they knew the base was they know the base is back up and running the US fight against ISIS from it. The only thing they don't have is commercial power to the base...but it is has it's own internal power it is using for now.

So the base is not being held ransom and was never in any danger of being closed to the US.
