CAIR, Awad Continue Aggressively Shilling for Turkey
A delegation from Turkey's parliament came to Washington this week to make the case for extraditing Fethullah Gülen, an opposition figure living in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania.
The Turkish government alleges Gülen was behind July's failed coup attempt and President Tayyip Recep Erdoğan describes his extradition as a "priority." Gülen denies any role in the coup and U.S. officials have said the Turkish evidence presented so far is not persuasive.
According to a Turkish press account, the delegation's second meeting was with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its executive director, Nihad Awad.
