The White House was caught off guard when Germany decided to transfer a convicted terrorist in its custody to Turkey who had long been pursued by the US, for which German officials say they had “no choice” but to reject a competing extradition request by the US. The surprise transfer resulted in a blow-up of sorts when American diplomats reportedly berated their German counterparts in a private meeting on Wednesday. Convicted terrorist Adem Yilmaz, an Islamist of Turkish nationality, was extradited under German law this month to Turkey after he was convicted in 2010 for plotting bomb attacks on American targets in Germany.
