The Honorable Barack H. Obama
President of the United States
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
USA

Dear Mr. President:

There is little need to review in depth the grim details about conditions in Turkey; I wrote to you about this subject twice last year. You can easily reread the letters at the addresses cited, if you wish (1). If not you, then someone in your administration surely should. For the existence of the secular, democratic Republic of Turkey hangs in the balance, brought to its knees by a civilian coup in the name of democracy. Yeats said it best back in 1933 when he wrote:

What they undertook to do
They brought to pass;
All things hang like a drop of dew
Upon a blade of grass.
(2)

Turkey is now in precisely this precarious position, a drop of dew hanging upon a blade of grass. And THEY have done their subversive job extraordinarily well. Just who are the "THEY," Mr. President? I will come to that. But first, a most brief summary.
