Foreign Policy said it put together the so-called “Power Map” of the planet’s 500 most powerful people, from billionaires to bad guys, and from CEOs to central bankers, from other lists and called it “The 0.000007 Percent.”

Erdoğan, Gülen, Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz, Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent, Turkey’s main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, Turkish President Abdullah Gül, Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) Undersecretary Hakan Fidan, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, Finance Minister Mehmet Şimşek and Ecumenical Patriarch of Orthodox Christians Bartholomew I were the public figures from Turkey included on the list.

Gülen was selected as the top public intellectual by Foreign Policy magazine in 2008.

We don’t know a lot. But what we do know should cause us to ask our elected officials to look carefully at any request for extradition for Fethullah Gulen.
