    U.S. officials reluctantly acknowledged--after Turkish officials, including the prime minister, had already let the cat out of the bag--that Washington had tipped off Ankara that Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Öcalan was in the Greek embassy in Kenya.

American intelligence information and diplomatic pressure on countries to deny him sanctuary were the key to his capture.
