There will be no more CIA-delivered weapons to Islamic terrorists in Syria so long as Donald Trump is POTUS.
The long-standing Obama-era operation to arm terrorists dubbed “rebels” in Syria is over.
The Establishment Media (and political cohorts from both parties) are already spinning this as a move to benefit Russia. Actually it benefits a more peaceful and stable Middle East but these days when does common sense and the truth get in the way of the far left’s globalist agenda?
President Trump has decided to end the CIA’s covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of Bashar al-Assad, a move long sought by Russia, according to U.S. officials.
The program was a central plank of a policy begun by the Obama administration in 2013 to put pressure on Assad to step aside, but even its backers have questioned its efficacy since Russia deployed forces in Syria two years later.
Officials said the phasing out of the secret program reflects Trump’s interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests. The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington’s limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power.
Note how it isn’t until the 3rd paragraph that the WAPO article admits the Obama policy of arming terrorists wasn’t working. That’s how fake news works. Blare a headline and bury the truth below.
If the media were more honest it would also be giving significant coverage to how the Obama CIA program aided and armed Islamic terrorists throughout the Middle East – including ISIS. (Similar to how the Obama administration aided and armed drug cartels along the U.S. – Mexico border that contributed to significant and deadly bloodshed.) Some have even suggested ISIS was directly created by Mr. Obama’s failed (or intentional) policies.
Instead the media is fixating this week on a sit down POTUS Trump had with Vladimir Putin during a dinner with twenty other world leaders milling about the room and calling that sit down “secret.”
Fake News strikes again.
At least the Middle East will be a little less deadly now that our CIA isn’t giving tens of millions of dollars in high-tech weaponry to the very people screaming “Death to America!”
Some common-sense, America-first foreign policy? Imagine that.
