Now that I’m tweeting, Facebooking, and in general traveling about like a dervish, I want to make sure I don’t neglect my blog! There are a number of interesting things happening, which I’ll pontificate about shortly, but for now, let me just announce, for anyone interested, that on Wednesday I testified before the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on Turkey and Gezi. A list of participants, the video of the full live proceedings and a download of my (longer) written testimony can be had here.
Hurriyet did a news piece on it, picking out one small statement (“The US should do something”) as its header. The web commenters predictably saw this as US interference. Well, we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t, so I think we should take the high road.
