US Complains to Turkey Over Embassy Cruelty; McCain: Throw Turkish Ambassador Out of US

The U.S. today (May 18, 2017) made a complaint to Turkey after violence erupted yesterday between peaceful protesters outside the Turkish embassy in Washington, D.C. and Turkish security personnel armed with guns, according to the BBC website.

Two people were arrested and 11 were injured during Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to the U.S.

U.S. Senator John McCain -- furious by the savage brutality shown by the Turkish security personnel -- today called for the Turkish ambassador to be expelled. "We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America," McCain said.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce sent letters to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson urging them to take action over the unnecessary brutal attacks by the Turkish security personnel (on supporters of Kurdish troops fighting the Islamic State terror group in Syria).
