ISIS and the Turkish Problem: 3 Great Stories by Jamie Dettmer

  1. Turkey Stalls, ISIS Triumphs

    Kobani has become the Kurds’ Alamo as they fight ISIS in Syria. Nobody’s coming to help them, and if and when they fall, the repercussions will be felt for years to come.
  2. Why Does the Free Syrian Army Hate Us?

    On the Turkish-Syrian border it quickly becomes clear why the FSA—the “moderate” rebels the Obama administration wants to train—have learned to loathe him.
  3. Turkey’s Sympathy for the Devil

    President Erdogan may have promised President Obama support, and moved tanks to the Syrian border, but Turkey is pretending to support a war it doesn’t believe in.
