Israel’s botched raid on an aid flotilla bound for Gaza hits closer to home than it at first seemed: An American is among the nine dead. Furkan Dogan, 19, was an American citizen who lived in and attended high school in Turkey. When Israeli commandos stormed the ship, he was shot at close range five times, including four times in the head. Dogan was born in the U.S. and returned to Turkey when he was 2. Meanwhile, the Obama administration said on Wednesday that it had warned the Israeli government to use “caution and restraint” with the flotilla prior to the raid. "We communicated with Israel through multiple channels many times regarding the flotilla,” a State Department spokesman tells The Washington Post. "We emphasized caution and restraint given the anticipated presence of civilians, including American citizens."
