BREAKING: President Trump to Pull 7,000 Troops out of Afghanistan

Published

on

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the President Trump is withdrawing 7,000 troops from Afghanistan.

“More than 7,000 American troops will begin to return home from Afghanistan in the coming weeks, a U.S. official said,” Wall Street Journal said.”The move will come as the first stage of a phased drawdown and the start of a conclusion to the 17-year war that officials say could take at least many months. There now are more than 14,000 U.S. troops.”

The move comes on the heels of Trump’s announcement to pull all American troops out of Syria, and the Thursday evening resignation of his Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis over foreign policy disagreements.

The move represents a promise kept to the Trump base, which is war-weary after suffering through nearly two decades of endless war in the Middle East. The announcement to bring the troops home from Syria sent the war mongering GOP establishment into a conniption.

John Bolton Completes Turncoat Transformation, Slams Trump White House For Delaying Tell-All Book

Bolton’s book is subject to a national security review.

Published

on

Former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton bemoaned a national security review of his upcoming tell-all book when speaking at Duke University on Monday.

Bolton isn’t pleased that his book, “The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir,” is being delayed while White House national security personnel thoroughly review it to ensure any and all classified information remains private. According to Bolton, the book’s been in review since December 30th, hardly a lengthy period of time to ensure that classified U.S intelligence isn’t released to the broader public.

According to Bolton, the process is censorship.

I say things in the manuscript about what [Trump] said to me; I hope they become public someday. He tweets, but I can’t talk about it — how fair is that?”

Bolton was fired as National Security Adviser for consistently trying to undermine the President’s America First foreign policy vision, instead preferring a neoconservative approach of regime change, globalism, and wide-ranging foreign intervention.

He’s flirted strongly with anti-Trump resistance liberals since his ouster, falling out of the President’s good graces and drawing his ire in presidential tweets.

This isn’t the first time that Bolton has claimed the White House are censoring him. He incorrectly believed the White House was blocking his access to his official Twitter account, when by all indications it simply appears he was unaware how to bypass the two-factor authentication needed to access Twitter from a new IP address after his firing.

It’s totally reasonable for Bolton’s profiteering book to be delayed for any and all considerations over classified information. The longtime neoconservative pundit will simply have to wait to cash in.
