Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In 1952, Greece and Turkey became members of the Alliance, joined later by West Germany (in 1955) and Spain (in 1982).

I must have completely misunderstood your post. I thought you meant that criticism of electoral shenanigans in NATO member countries didn't count as "free speech" (your quotes). I offered Turkey as a counter-example, because the recent egregious violations of the liberal-democratic framework have been widely (and justly) criticized.

But we don't seem to share much in terms of referential : I have a great deal of difficulty parsing you, there seems to be a lot of missing subtext. So it's probably pointless to pursue this particular discussion.
