With Michael Rubin
In light of the visit of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, MICHAEL RUBIN of the American Enterprise Institute joins Frank for the entire hour to outline the Geo-political role of Erdogan and Turkey, both historically and in the context of current events.
What is the nature of the Turkish government and how has it changed under Erdogan’s leadership? Has it drifted, undetected, from a secular nationalist nation toward one with an Islamist identity?
This important NATO ally has maintained appearances through Erdogan’s relationship with Obama even while a sea change in Turkish foreign policy shifts to strengthen ties with Middle Eastern entities aligned against the U.S. What are the implications for Israel, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt?
