He got tripped up because his passport said he was born in New Amsterdam.  Why they didn't change it, I don't know.

Yes.

It was pretty cool.  Lots of places closed early, and most places were closed on the weekend, but there was still plenty to see.

So Al-Baghdadi died on the opposite side of Syria from the former Islamic State, coincidentally in territory controlled by the Turks. And now this guy shows up in the largest city in Turkey.

I'm certain it is just a coincidence and not a policy of Erdogan's to provide shelter to these guys as a means of control.

The Kurds were the most effective force fighting ISIS, until Pinocchio** threw them under the bus. Of course Erdogan was on the other side.

I was there three or four years ago, spent a week hunt in the city. That place is cool as hell, except for the trolleys where you're not sure you'll be able to squeeze your way to the door in time to make your stop.

The Kurds were effective fighters and loyal allies and, although Kurdistan is inconveniently located, the moral case for Kurdish sovereignty or real autonomy is pretty much unassailable.

Thanks for this. I'm a vintage music freak but I have always liked the rhythm of the TMBG one better. This is a little too Perry Como for me.
