Katehon think tank and geopolitical forecasting has run a short article (below) with pictures which appear to show Turkish NATO Colonel Ali Yazici and what is undoubtedly US Ambassdor to Turkey, John Basse.
The new evidence of the US participation in the coup attempt in Turkey emerged. Greek press published a photo made a day before the coup. It shows the US ambassador in Turkey John Basse together with the Turkish senior officer, who looks like one of the leaders of the coup Col. Ali Yazici (former military adviser to President Erdogan). They had a private meeting in Cengelkoy café the day before the coup."

The image demonstrates the US involvement in the coup and its close ties with a part of Turkish army, before the upheaval. Recall, that physical elimination of Erdogan was one of the goals of the coup attempt.

The next move by the Turkish government will be to ask the expulsion of the American ambassador from the country which will cause further disruption to the US and trigger process of Turkey leaving the NATO.
Feigning indignation, Basse lashed out against the distribution of the photographic evidence: "I just want to say
again, as I've said before and as we've said from Washington, the United States government did not plan, direct, support or have any advance knowledge of any of the illegal activities that occurred the night of July 15 and into July 16. Full stop [...], Frankly, if we would have had knowledge we would have told the Turkish government about it immediately," US ambassador John Bass said in the Turkish English-language Hurriyet Daily News

He went on to say that he was "deeply disturbed and offended by the accusations". Not long after the coup attempt, Labour Minister Suleyman Soylu went on the record saying that "the United States is behind the coup." Turkey's former army chief, Ilker Basbug, stated earlier this week that the CIA was also behind it.

Comment: The US embassy hilariously tried to defend itself by posting the photo with giant "Fake" text sprawled all over it:

Ali Yazıcı (former military adviser to President Erdogan). They had a private meeting in Cengelkoy café the day before the coup. 

F. William Engdahl - historian, economic researcher, writer comments this:
The US right now is on a defensive. Erdogan has openly challenged leading NATO generals. There is investigation of evidences of the US involvement in the coup. I personally have suggested investigating the person of the US Ambassador in Ankara John Bass, who was Ambassador in Republic of Georgia in 2008 and who was involved in dirty business in Iraq

Secret Turkish intelligence source: Erdogan rebelled against NATO but won after taking control of Incirlik air force base

The nucleus of the coup was the American Incirlik air force base in Turkey (located on the Mediterranean coast, a few hundred kilometers from the border with Syria, allows to control the Middle East. - Ed.). Chief of the base, Turkish General Bekir Ercan Van is now arrested (the base was also used for Turkish aircraft - after all the country is a member of NATO. - Ed.).
All the main characters are from there. According to my insider information, the US Ambassador to Turkey John Bass (he had previously served in Georgia and there also conducted the anti-Russian policy) met several times with the former commander of the air force and the leader of the coup Akin Ozturk and the head of the base under the pretext of discussing relations with the Kurds in Syria and Iraq. The Turkish military - in general are mostly graduates of NATO military institutions, are pro-American. As interrogations show, the current conspirators, among whom were the top and the second echelon, received serious guarantees from the military and diplomatic leadership of the United States. They were promised asylum in the base in case of failure
