Turkey is still reeling from the effects of the failed coup attempt on July 16.
What unfolded on that Friday evening made clear to the world that some military personal were acting out of the chain of command, as opposed to the military as a whole.
Suspicion as to who was responsible for the attempted coup has touched President Obama, who recently publicly denied prior knowledge of the coup. The Turkish president himself has also been accused of staging the coup to revamp his government. However, president Erdogan is keen to pursue U.S.-based cleric Fetullah Gulen,who lives in exile in Pennsylvania, as the mastermind behind the attempted coup. Since then, hundreds of arrests have been made to rid the government of accused Gulen infiltrators from within the judiciary, military and media.
However what remains apparent to most people is how the western media and politicians responded and reacted to what galvanized Turkey into such chaos that evening.
