Turkey: Top Military Leaders Resign

Turkey’s top commander, Gen. Isik Kosaner, together with the leaders of the navy, army and air force, simultaneously resigned in protest over the sweeping arrests of dozens of generals as suspects in conspiracy. It's a very important moment in the history of modern Turkey, so far characterized by the preeminence of the military as a controlling force over the state.
