WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday that the release of American pastor Andrew Brunson by a Turkish court at his next hearing on Friday would be an important step and the right thing to do.

 

"It is the right thing for them to do, it is the humanitarian thing for Turkey to do," Pompeo told the annual Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) dinner in Washington, D.C. "I am very hopeful that before too long he and his wife will be able to return to the United States."

Me thinks that's the perfect setting to talk about an evangelical presbyterian pastor "doing his thing" with a congregation numbering in the 25's, in a muslim country, and being suspected of some sidekick work for the mighty CIA. Ample grounds for sanctions, too.

 

Jeeeeez, that whole Murica soap opera is really losing any semblance to a decent plot.
