That article is comic gold.
It starts with the allegations of a random 22 year old "sandwich shop worker."
The "evidence" is the failure to extradite Fethullah Gulen, who has lived in the US since 1999 and against whom there is seemingly no evidence.
Then my favorite quote:
“America is behind the coup,” Soylu said, according to an English translation in the Hurriyet Daily News, a respected Turkish newspaper. The minister cited “magazines” as describing the U.S. connection to the coup but declined to specify which ones.
Sounds like Sarah Palin's interview with Katie Couric.
The article then ends with a quote from another geopolitical expert, Mehmet Demir, 43, a waiter at another restaurant near the Bosphorus.
“America is messing with the entire world,” Demir said. “The coup is all because of (Gulen's followers) and America.”
I'm still looking for the Onion in the url, but bizarrely, it does appear to have been published by USA Today.
