US Diplomat Admits to Telling Commander in Chief Lies About Troop Levels

US Diplomat Admits to Telling Commander in Chief Lies About Troop Levels.

 

President Donald Trump’s envoy to Syria has revealed that the White House never really knew how many American troops were in Syria even after  Trump ordered an almost complete withdrawal in 2019.

James Jeffrey, State Department special representative for Syria engagement and special envoy to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, admitted the subterfuge in an interview with Defense One published Thursday.

“We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there,” Jeffrey said.

In fact, he said, the number of U.S. troops in Syria is “a lot more than” the approximately 200 the president agreed should remain when he announced a withdrawal of U.S. forces in 2019.

“What Syria withdrawal? There was never a Syria withdrawal,” Jeffrey said.

“When the situation in northeast Syria had been fairly stable after we defeated ISIS, [Trump] was inclined to pull out. In each case, we then decided to come up with five better arguments for why we needed to stay. And we succeeded both times. That’s the story.”

Republican Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana was livid at Jeffrey’s revelation, according to Yahoo News.

“Intentionally misrepresenting a matter of national security to the commander-in-chief is a dereliction of duty and should be punished,” said Banks, a member of the House Armed Services Committee. “I can’t think of anything more dishonorable.”

Jeffrey called Trump’s withdrawal order “the most controversial thing in my fifty years in government” but acknowledged that the Trump doctrine in the Middle East has been successful.

 

The envoy said Trump achieved a stalemate, which he considered no mean feat.

“Stalemate and blocking advances and containing is not a bad thing,” Jeffrey said. “That’s what powerful countries — France, Britain, the United States — failed to do in the 1930s, and then they discovered they had to fight for their lives in really important places like Paris and the South China Sea and North Africa.”

They attack conservatives in DC on Saturday and all piece of shit Biden wants to do is talk white supremacy.  What a dishonest, pandering, puppet of an old senile coot.

They're already planning on some new wars. As far as I'm concerned these people admitting this should be tried for treason.
