#1 Oh Noes! They won't be able to use the Turkish financial system?

#2 So they close our air base and we close the Gulenlash place right?

#3 "Today I will give our friends instructions to freeze the assets in Turkey of the American justice and interior ministers, if they have any (such assets)," Erdogan said in a televised speech.

Wonder if Herr Gestapo Kommandant Mueller has learned of this 'breaking news' and is sending a crack team of investigators to Turkey in order to ferret out Session's foreign ties.

#4 I think this move is relevant because it shows Erdogan's defiant attitude.

IMO the house arrest is much more dangerous for Brunson than the jail since Erdogan can now take action under the cover of somewhat plausible deniability.

I hope Brunson won't be 'abducted' by parties unknown who will then issue demands to the US that Erdogan can't yet afford to officially make.
