US Papers Sun: Obama in Turkey May Mend Ties
Since the Invasion of 2003, US/Turkish Relations Strained
By DANIEL W. SMITH 04/05/2009 02:00 AM ET

From Ankara
The only story that really even mentions Iraq today is an article by Kevin Sullivan in the Washington Post about Turkish citizens, anxiously awaiting Sunday night’s visit by President Barack Obama. Good relations with Turkey are said to be of great importance, due to its border with Iraq, and because the invasion of Iraq has proved the greatest rift between the countries in decades. The PKK is also mentioned briefly.

That’s really all the Sunday papers have to offer. It’s worth noting whenever the New York Times has nothing about Iraq at all in its Sunday edition.

Christian Science Monitor, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, no Sunday Editions.

New York Times, no Iraq coverage.
