Hundreds of military and diplomatic family members near Incirlik air base in southern Turkey are being told they can leave the country, U.S. officials said Thursday, citing increased worries about security threats in the region.The decision comes as Turkey takes a bigger role in the fight against ISIS militants, joining the airstrike campaign and allowing expanded use of the Incirlik base by the U.S. for fighter jet and drone missions.The U.S. officials weren't authorized to discuss the matter publicly, so they spoke anonymously.
