Trump Saw A Disturbing Video, Then He Shut Down The CIA’s Covert Syria Program

While we’ve carefully documented the dynamics in play behind Trump’s decision to end the CIA’s covert Syria program, as well as the corresponding fury this immediately unleashed among the usual hawkish DC policy wonks, new information on what specifically impacted the president’s thinking has emerged.

    Considering that the CIA and Pentagon were funding rival Syrian groups that were trying to kill each other and not just e.g. ISIS and Assad’s forces, this was the right decision politically and not just morally.

      • El Martyachi

        I’m hoping Trump sees it and shuts down the CIA’s Covert Northern Pretend Country Program.

    Remember , Omar Khadr was 15 and it’s outrageous how canada and his family treated him. The CBC and CUPE were outraged while the NDP and Liberal endorsed rallies to condemn abuse to children.

    I’m sure the CBC and STAR as well as the NDP and CUPE are outraged at this child getting beheaded as well as the Children’s Advocacy groups plus all the Mosques in Canada showing outrage.
    Facebook and Twitter will be flooded with notices of the rallies in Toronto and the outrage by John Tory and Premier Wynne.

    Oh wait……that’s a muslim beheading the boy and Justin wants us to look at the root causes for why he did this and how the boy Provoked that peaceful muslim to snap praise god in arabic .

    This is by far the best decision that Trump has made since becoming President and it took a lot of courage because neocon heads exploded in Washington when the announcement was made. I read elsewhere that US / Arab State backed terrorists have been responsible in killing or injuring 500,000 soldiers aligned with Assad. What Trump needs to do next is order Session’s to conduct a war crime investigation and charge everyone in the CIA / State department / Obama administration (e.g. Clinton) who were responsible for arming these terrorists. Anyone with blood on their hands should face execution.

    It hard to believe that even ISLAM is this EVIL .

  • Shebel

    How can we ignore this Islamic shit.
    It must be their constant threat of VIOLENCE .

  • Shebel

    Imagine that poor little kid— in the back of that pick-up truck–
    With the full knowledge that these fucking Muslims are going to slowly cut his throat and bleed him out like a HALAL Sheep.

    Is it Blasphemy to CURSE your fucking Prophet ?

    It is hard to believe that there is actually a Religion like Islam—
    Int his Day and Age.

    Violence , intimidation ,threats and just plain being a bunch of assholes—

  • Shebel

    If there is such a thing as EVIL in this World
    I have just witnessed it.
    It is called ISLAM.

  • Shebel

    Blasphemy— Is ME saying that you PROPHET was one —
    Sick piece of shit.
    I guess you will have to KILL me because that is what Muslims do .
    Jesus will forgive you Animals.

    Anything to do with Aleppo involves erdogan one way or another. The Emperor Barry / Hitlery / CIA meme always seemed to involve reaching out to the most extreme anti American muslim fanatics in place to create the most blood and gore.
    Just like Benghazi

    Syria is like watching a rat’s nest on fire. There are no good guys or bad guys. There are just animals tearing each other to pieces.
