The New York Times >Turkish Prison anyone...

"A German court ruled Wednesday that the leader of a radical Islamist group can be extradited to Turkey, saying he did not face human rights abuses in his home country, court officials said.

Metin Kaplan, head of a Cologne-based group known as the Kalifstaat (Caliphate state), is wanted in Turkey for plotting in 1998 to crash an aircraft loaded with explosives into the mausoleum of Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the modern, secular Turkish state."

Heh. When people, and by people I mean Chris Matthews, pontificate on what model the Iraq democracy could follow, please people, metion Turkey. I have travelled there and while it is no western style democracy, it is an eastern style democracy that seems to work.

Hey when radical islamicist do not want to go there, it can't be all that bad.
