Via <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="">TPMMuckraker</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> , I find it curious to see Rummy making a very public apology to Turkey... <br><br>For me it's perceived convergence of seemingly divergent points, because Turkey was <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="">recently in the news</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->, and seems to be coming up in interesting ways...<br><br>The <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="">article referenced</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> begins:<br><br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr> Turkish National Defense Minister Vecdi Gonul met with U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld at the Pentagon yesterday and discussed the “unfortunate” map incident that occurred earlier this year.<br><br>Gonul was greeted by Rumsfeld and military honors upon his arrival at the Pentagon.<br><br>Later, when the talks between the delegations started, the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy and a former ambassador to Ankara, Eric Edelman joined them.<br><br>Rumsfeld emphasized that the Pentagon was not involved in the issue.<br><br>...<br><br>Following his meeting with Rumsfeld, Gonul also met Deputy Defense Secretary <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Gordon England</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> at the Pentagon.<br><hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br><br>CIA vs. DoD? Political theatre? Thoughts? Gordon England was linked to the Larry Franklin, AIPAC spy probe, as well as the OSP and the Iraq "war planning"/propaganda... a quick search turns up <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="">an article</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> quoting Dov Zakheim, "Gordon England is the best manager in DoD, bar none..."<br><br>On edit, <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="">lukery</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> is on the case...<br><br>On second edit, add Gordon England reference... <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=>dqueue</A> at: 10/31/06 7:54 pm<br></i>
