Quite possible they are using Gulen as a cover for the purge. The NATO aspect however is something else. A Turkish state propaganda organ, and not some blog, specifically pointed a finger at a specific general. Given that this entire planet is ruled by lying sociopaths all around, I agree regarding "don't know". But unlikely marriages involving religious leaders in Levant and Western powers is as old as the British Empire. The silver lining in this (and the recent Russian hate-hour) is that they have made the fact that our media is centrally controlled perfectly clear. It takes a special kind of head in the sand, imo, to not acknowledge this at this point.
