Senior Administration Officials Lied To Trump About Troop Levels So He Wouldn’t Pull Out Of Syria

The Interventionist Crowd Will do Everything Possible to Keep American Troops Abroad

On November 12, 2020, Jim Jeffrey, the United States’ outgoing Special Representative to Syria, announced that he and other leading officials in the Trump administration constantly misled President Donald Trump on the number of troops present in the Middle East.

Jeffrey told Defense One that he was able to convince Trump to keep between 200 to 400 troops in the region in 2019 to “secure” oil fields that U.S. allies held in addition to other key positions. This runs counter to President Trump’s goal of completely withdrawing from the Middle East.

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

Jim Sciutto, CNN’s national security correspondent, revealed on Twitter that senior Defense Department officials shared similar stories with him when he interviewed them for his book, “The Madman Theory.”

“If you look at his tweets, they were definitive about leaving,” Sciutto said on November 13, referencing a passage from the book. “And then we didn’t leave. And now we haven’t left, we’re still there, and that’s a good thing.”

The Daily Caller reported that Jeffrey was originally an opponent of Trump’s foreign policy before he joined the administration in 2018. However, he did give Trump praise during his interview with Defense One. He cited Trump’s “modest” way of handling Middle Eastern policy as far more effective than his predecessors such as George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

“Nobody really wants to see President Trump go, among all our allies [in the Middle East],” he commented. “The truth is President Trump and his policies are quite popular among all of our popular states in the region. Name me one that’s not happy.”

Recently, Trump has been on a tear by firing Defense Secretary Mark Esper and bringing in interventionist critic and retired Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor as an advisor. The Trump administration has been somewhat of a disappointment on foreign policy. Questionable staffing decisions along with institutional inertia due to the influence of the defense industry has made the Trump administration unable to follow through with some of his most bold foreign policy goals.

If the worst happens and Trump is removed from office, America First nationalists must take up the mantle of non-interventionism and avoid the mistakes the Trump administration has made.

Washington DC Democrat Government Poisons Michigan National Guard Troops With Uncooked Meals, Metal Shavings

Classic Washington.

A whistleblower deployed with a detachment of the Michigan National Guard in Washington, DC has revealed that that his soldiers are being served with unsafe food by the government. The troops are present following the January 20th inauguration.

The staff sergeant revealed the travesty, speaking anonymously to Detroit’s WXYZ. The National Guard had contracted with the Washington DC city government to feed the troops, who were present to protect the city.

Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them,” the sergeant said. “Just yesterday, the lunches were, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food.

The staff sergeant whistleblower revealed the raw meat had made more than a dozen service members sick with food poisoning, with one soldier even having to go to the hospital after eating the uncooked chicken.

The Michigan National Guard later confirmed that the troops were being effectively food-poisoned by the local government.

The MING personnel have since switched to eating MRE’s, or meals-ready-to-eat.

The uncooked food scandal represents the second act of disrespect to Guard members stationed around the Capitol. Pelosi’s House of Representatives had kicked out Guard members who were sleeping in a lobby room following a Democrat Congressman’s complaint that one wasn’t wearing a mask, forcing the troops to sleep in a parking lot on a night where temperatures were near freezing.

The Washington political establishment wishes to use military service members as political props to fearmonger a bogus imminent threat of “insurrection,” but the bastion of globalism can’t even provide edible food to the troops.
