January 14, 2016 The Boston Globe

Stephen Kinzer, senior fellow at the Watson Institute, discusses the ramifications of Turkey's " wildly adventurist policy toward the Syrian conflict" and the recent bombing in Istanbul. The attack "will naturally affect tourism, but more important is the symbolism of such violence striking at the nation's historic heart," Kinzer wrote. The bombing may finally force Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to reconsider his view of ISIS, he says.
