Under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey has become Islamist, anti-American, and undemocratic. More journalists are jailed in Turkey than any other country. Turkey slaughters Kurds under the pretense of fighting terrorism. Erdogan seized on the failed coup attempt of July 2016 to justify a witch hunt, arresting tens of thousands and ordering the wholesale dismissal of alleged coup sympathizers.An Uncertain Ally is a straightforward indictment of Erdogan. Drawing on inside sources in his Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the police, the book reveals corruption and money laundering schemes that benefited Erdogan, his cronies, and family members.
