Another Frenemy!

The president of Turkey visited president Trump, and left a lasting impression, one he doesn’t want. President Erdogan’s Security Detail, roughed up the 25 protesters legally gathered to protest outside his embassy. This blatant physical assault, in violation of US law, was done with President Erdogan looking on.
Because of “Diplomatic Immunity” the hands of the US are tied, and, while the Turkish Ambassador was called on the carpet, nothing more substantially can be done about the incident. 

Turkey is now in the same category as Pakistan, a “Frenemy” — someone vital to the prosecution of our Middle Eastern policy, but who otherwise would be on the top of our Sierra List.

It must gall Washington to have Pakistan and Turkey play in our sandbox. I know it galls me!
