LATE TURKEY: Reuters reports that Turkey has finally granted permission to use its airspace. Given how well things have gone, I’m rather tempted to tell them to stick it. This is about as helpful, at this late stage, as Russia declaring war on Japan after the first atomic bomb was droped. Thanks, guys.
