Remember back in 2003 when Turkey refused to allow US troops passage over Turkey into Northern Iraq? That meant no Northern front in Iraq, as well as creating a logistical scramble.
Well, as the MEMRI Turkish Media Blog reports, Turkey's done it again: "Turkey once again rejected America’s request to allow passage through the Bosphorus straits into the Black Sea for U.S. vessels carrying humanitarian aid to Georgia. Similarly Turkey denied permission to NATO naval forces to use the straits for deployment in the Black Sea...."
So much for Turkey's NATO membership.
