    The Wall Street Journal heavily criticized Turkey in its editorial and prompted adverse reactions of Turks living in the U.S and diplomatic sources. The Wall Street Journal, the primary finance daily with a circulation of 2 million vper day, stated in an article drafted by the editor Robert L. Pullock, "Much of Ataturk's legacy risks being lost, and there won't be any of the old Ottoman grandeur left, either.

    Turkey could easily become just another second-rate country: small-minded, paranoid, marginal and -- how could it be otherwise? -- friendless in America and unwelcome in Europe."

    In his article, Pollock qualified the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) as "subtle" and "insidious", and wrote, "at the 2002 election, the increasingly corrupt mainstream parties that had championed Turkish-American ties self-destructed, leaving a vacuum that was filled by the subtle yet insidious Islamism of the Justice and Development (AK) Party.
