While in Kuwait the major issue we had to deal with was figuring out who was under the Chief of Mission and who was considered technical staff. It seems the same topics and issues will be debated as Turkey goes to war against the Sunni Muslim Kurds.
The Fox report states: “U.S. officials ordered families of U.S. service members and government workers to return home from southern Turkey on Tuesday due to what they called “continued security concerns in the region.”
“On Monday, Sky News reported Islamic State terrorists were planning an “imminent” attack on Jewish schools in Turkey, citing intelligence sources.”
“The Pentagon and State Department said dependents of American staffers at the U.S. consulate in Adana, the nearby Incirlik air base and two other locations must leave. The so-called “ordered departure” notice means the government will cover relocation costs. Officials said relatives of essential Chief of Mission personnel could stay.”
