U.S. military commanders in Iraq didn't know Turkey was sending warplanes to bomb in northern Iraq until the planes had already crossed the border, said defense and diplomatic officials, who were angered about being left in the dark.
It was left to the Americans to inform Iraqi government officials of Sunday's incursion, one U.S. official said.
Nice. The Turks are saying, "Iraq is your puppet government, you tell 'em."
But the Turks know what everybody else knows, but only those who are making money or political capital off it won't admit: Iraq is a quagmire, and we're stuck in it.
And say, I wonder where the Turks got the idea that unilateral invasions are OK?
Maybe the same place they got the idea of threatening an invasion to win an election?
