Islamist purge in Turkey hits thousands

NY Times:

Turkey Fires Nearly 9,000 Officers After Failed Coup Attempt

The mass firing of police officers came after 6,000 military personnel were arrested and nearly 3,000 judges were suspended in the attempt to topple President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Ed\rdogan is seizing the opportunity to be the Islamist despot he always wanted to be.  The coup is becoming the equivalent of Hitler's Reichstag fire as an excuse for expanding the power of an incompetent ally of the US.
