An Erdogan coup?

Daily Mail:

Did Erdogan STAGE the coup? US-based Turkish cleric facing extradition over botched rebellion claims president orchestrated plot to justify a clampdown on civil rights
  • Exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen accused Recep Erdogan of staging the coup
  • The Pennsylvania-based preacher has condemned the attempted rebellion
  • Erdogan told supporters he is considering reintroducing the death penalty
  • He claimed Gulen was behind a 'parallel structure' to overthrow the state 
It sounds a little convoluted  but somehow believable.  I suspect the chances are remote that Gulen could have pulled off even a failed coup.
