Treasonous Act of Betrayal Must be Punished

The President was betrayed while trying to deliver on a key campaign promise.

Jim Jeffrey, the United States’ retiring Special Representative to Syria and the special envoy in the fight against the Islamic State, confirmed Thursday that he and other senior administration officials routinely misled President Donald Trump on troop levels in the Middle East.

Jeffrey, speaking to Defense One, explained how despite Trump’s stated promise to withdraw America from endless Middle Eastern engagements, he was able to convince the president to commit to keeping between 200 to 400 troops in the region in 2019 to “secure” oil fields held by U.S. allies and other strategic positions.

WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 11: U.S. President Donald Trump presents the Medal of Honor to Sergeant Major Thomas P. Payne, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry in the East Room of the White House on September 11, 2020 in Washington, DC. On October 22, 2015, during a daring nighttime hostage rescue in Kirkuk Province, Iraq, then-Sergeant First Class Payne led a combined assault team charged with clearing one of two buildings known to house hostages. His actions were key to liberating 75 hostages during a rescue mission that resulted in 20 enemy fighters killed in action. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

“We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there,” he stated. “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 chief national security correspondent, tweeted that senior Defense Department officials told him similar stories when interviewed for his book, “The Madman Theory.”

“If you look at his tweets, they were definitive about leaving,” Sciutto wrote Friday, quoting 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.”

Jeffrey, who publicly opposed Trump’s foreign policy before joining the administration in 2018, did praise Trump during his interview with Defense One. He claimed that Trump’s “modest” approach to Middle Eastern policy was far more effective than that of either former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

“Nobody really wants to see President Trump go, among all our allies [in the Middle East],” he explained. “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.”

In recent days, Trump has installed a totally new leadership group at the Pentagon, one which reports indicate will help him complete a full troop withdrawal from Afghanistan before the end of the year.

  1. This guy was a snake of the hidden deep state. Now he is out in the open and this will not be the last of them. What a lousy DOD deep state ploy! These people are beyond the border of our security and love their power and ability to deceive a president. Guess the whole bunch needs to be culled out as well.

  2. I couldn’t agree more with your comments! Obama, was not only the worse US President in this nation’s history, but also a complete FRAUD! No, other US President was afforded a past, as it directly relates to showing the people of this nation their academic records, and also explain to the people of this nation that his “SSN” was a dead mans! He was an immigrant/American, who legally immigrated to this country! Let’s dare not forget that his “birth certificate’ is also a”Fraudulent”! This is the very first time that I’ve ever witnessed an American President who simply put hated this country! In, truth Obama should be “Exposed’ for truly who he is, ehich is a complete fraud, and both tried, and convicted for his crimes against America!
