After the Coup in Turkey: A State of Emergency Since the failed coup just a week ago, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has rounded up some 10,000 soldiers, academics and government workers. A more extended purge is expected, even as Turkish officials reassure NATO allies it will continue to meet international obligations. But the nation is sharply divided between cities and countryside, between secularism and religion. There are fears for democracy. Meantime, Turkey demands that the US extradite Fethullah Gülen, accused by Erdoğan of orchestrating the coup. At this morning's news conference, when asked about the demand for Gulen's extradition to Turkey, Obama told reporters, "I told President Erdoğan that they should present us with evidence that they think indicates the involvement of Mr. Gülen or anyone else who's here in the United States and it would be processed in the way that it is always processed."
