Erdogan is demanding Obama return Turkish Mystic (and moderate) Fethullah Gülen

As for Fethullah Gülen, do you think Barack Obama would blame some innocent third party if it helped him in the short term?  Obama would never do anything so craven as that, would he? And Hillary would never do that either, would she?

Who Is Fethullah Gülen? Gülen supports charter schools in America. Gülen is a somewhat moderate Muslim (it is a bit more complicated than that, but he is definitely not a radical), who was first to condemn the 9/11 attacks. Gülen is definitely not chummy with Iran.  If he thought he could get away with it, Obama would probably flip on Gülen.
