In the wake of the publication of government documents that reveal a legacy of lies and failure surrounding the United States’ 18-year ongoing war in Afghanistan, President Donald Trump is preparing to announce that the nation will withdraw 4,000 American troops from the country.
The pullout would cut the presence of American troops in the troubled Central Asian nation by a third, from approximately 12,000 to 8,000.
NBC News reported on the development on Saturday night. It’s unclear if the development is directly linked to the revelation of the damning documents on the Afghanistan War earlier this week, but the timing seems to imply it’s probably not a coincidence.

The documents, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, expose a consistent track record of senior military and civilian authorities overstating U.S progress in deterring and combating the Afghan Taliban. American gains are almost immediately washed away as soon as troops depart from Taliban-infested regions of the country, even after an 18-year presence.
A drawdown of the military presence in Afghanistan would represent a turnaround for the Trump administration and a return to the America First principles the President proposed as a candidate in 2016. Trump had earlier been convinced to buff up the American military presence in Afghanistan.
It’s well past time for the war in Afghanistan- which is now by far the longest conflict to have occurred in American history- to be brought to a conclusion. A troop drawdown is a step in the right direction, but the ultimate goal for America First patriots should be to bring home every American service member from the eternally troubled and unstable distant nation.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
