Turkey holds 1,500 U.S. military HOSTAGE after coup, Obama busy PLAYING GOLF!!
Erdogan, the despotic ruler of Turkey, appears to be holding 1,500 U.S. soldiers hostage at Incirlik air base in an attempt to pressure Obama to hand over his political opponent who was exiled to Pennsylvania. Erdogan claims that he ordered and organized the failed coup last night.

Where’s Obama? Out getting a few rounds of golf of course!!!
Obama has wrapped up 11am NSC Turkey call, en route, presumably to golf, per pool at 1145.

OK now look, I think we overdo it on the “OMG Obama is playing golf again” outrage. But in this case, I really am outraged. Shouldn’t that self-centered arrogant moron interrupt his golf game to make absolutely sure that 1,500 out of our troops are released quickly and safely?!?
I guess if you’re gonna let terrorists kill 4 Americans, another 1,500 is just a statistic.
