Police have closed all entrances and exits, claiming fear of 2nd coup.
Erdogan has blamed Turkish Air Force members who had worked closest with NATO and U.S. as being involved in coup. They have also previously accused U.S. of involvement in the coup, even blaming the former commander of the base, who retired in March and couldn’t have been involved. But an Erdogan Islamist paper explicitly blamed him, stoking flames against NATO and the U.S.
‘Protesters’, read Erdogan Islamists, were there Thursday, with pro-Erdogan Islamists yelling “death to the US” and called for the immediate closure of the Incirlik base.

Meanwhile Obama is on his birthday golf outing with the boys.
Reports of protesters in front of the U.S. Consulate in Adana. That is about 13 minutes away from Incirlik. Chanting “America, go away!”

More Erdogan Islamists showing up at base.
Turkish Minister is calling it a ‘security check’. Uh, yeah, security checks with thousands of police and protesters?
Chanting “Allahu Akbar” at base, this is completely being pushed by Erdogan.
