Turkey’s news agency films Gülen’s mansion in Pennsylvania
ISTANBULTurkey’s semi-official Anadolu Agency has filmed the mansion complex of U.S.-based Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, the ally-turned-bête noire of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).
“The mansion in Pennsylvania, which is said to have once been flooded by visitors, is now silent,” the report stated on Jan. 29.
Anadolu Agency also said its correspondents had to “face the aggressive behaviour of a driver entering the mansion complex,” which lies on an area of 110,000 square meters in the Poconos.
The correspondent complained that Gülen’s residence “cannot be filmed from a distance satisfactorily due to the presence of large, dense trees.”
“Locals spoke of the secretive structure of the complex, which is isolated outside the town [of Saylorsburg], say it gives the impression of a cult,” the report also noted.
