Turkey Denies Agreement With Obama Administration

National Security Advisor Susan Rice announced Sunday that Turkey had “in the last several days made a commitment that they will in the first instance allow the United States and our partners to use Turkish bases and territory to train … moderate Syrian opposition forces.” Not only that, she said, “In addition, they have said that their facilities inside of Turkey can be used by the coalition forces, American and otherwise, to engage in activities inside of Iraq and Syria. That’s the new commitment, and one that we very much welcome.” Rice has never been known to tell a lie on a Sunday talk show before, so imagine our surprise when Turkey denied any such agreement. “There is no decision at the moment,” said foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. The truth is, the administration’s approach to ISIL is a pathetic JV effort, and they’re having trouble recruiting allies as a result.

Update: Not only is there no deal, but the Turks just dropped bombs on the Kurds fighting ISIL.
