Guard at Fethullah Gulen's compound in Poconos fires warning shot to scare away intruder, prompting police response
From Morning Call, by Reporters Christina Tatu and John Misinco, 3 October 2018.
Here is the lede:
A security guard fired a “warning shot” in response to an apparent intruder at Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen’s compound in the Poconos on Wednesday morning, prompting a response by Pennsylvania State Police.Why do we care? Because this is an example of a foreign nation (Turkey) attempting to conduct Executive Action on US Territory. You may be OK with that, but I am not. Open Source information points to Iran dealing with emigre dissidents the same way. And Russia also.
This issue is complicated by the fact that we are cooperating with Turkey in Syria and we station forces (e.g.; Incirlik Air Base) in Turkey.
