In what may be one of the most significant foreign policy decisions of his first year in office, Trump is shutting down the CIA's covert program to arm rebels fighting the Syrian government. The Washington Post reports:
The move is consistent with signals coming out of the White House over the past months, as well as in keeping with Trump's early campaign promises that he would seek to wind down the war in Syria by making ISIS the only objective, and not the removal of Assad.
There have been additional hints at willingness to work closer with Russia in a strategic anti-terror partnership in Syria. Secretary of State Tillerson's said in an April interview with ABC News, as well several weeks ago, that Assad's fate would be up for the Syrian people to decide, adding that:
Today's news of shutting down the CIA program comes on the heels of a new Syria-Russia-US ceasefire deal in southwest Syria in what's seen as a broader policy of deescalation in Syria. All attempts at de-escalation in Syria have been widely panned by the neo-con lobby in Congress, headed by John McCain and various other warhawk politicians, whose Military-Industrial Complex donors realize that the surest way to a sliding stock price for an weapons-maker is through peace.
Did you know that in, his people, mainly Attorney General Jeff Sessions, prosecuted 1,500 sex traffickers? To date, Trump/Sessions have prosecuted 3,500 child-sex-traffickers.
President Donald Trump issued an executive order giving the FBI extra power to crack down on human trafficking offenses.
My guest from this previous Sunday night was fired by Townhall, shortly after running this piece on Trump and his intent on going after pedophiles. Liz told me in a private conversation that she was told by Townhall officials that they would never cover the subject again even if the President made it a news item. This opens up a whole can of worms about this publication. What is Townhall hiding? Liz Crokin felt compelled to flee the country for her safety.
I covered this on the same date as Liz Crokin. The day before, President Trump announced that he was initiating a bold new initiative to go after child-sex-traffickers. I ran a video of the announcement on my Feb. 25th article. However, the video, a major announcement by the President of the United States has been scrubbed from the Internet. Any questions?
