I am the Cassandra of "extremely horrible geopolitical blowback and assorted garbage."

Trump is pardoning war criminals -- against Pentagon opposition.

This will absolutely NOT end well.

Yesterday, NPR covered the hideous (but obvious for anyone with a fraction of regional knowledge and also the tiniest sliver of sense) news that what we know about CIA's torture program?

Only about 30% of the "far more brutal" reality.
The war criminals for whom Trump decided to issue pardons (despite the Pentagon's opposition to an asinine move)...

Veterans of the ("Endless" by any and every other name) Global War On Terror. #GWOT

Given Trump’s “speech” on #Baghdadi, I really need to do an extended thread about this issue.
The oft-mentioned "orange jumpsuits" in Trump's #Baghdadi's speech refer to the costumes #ISIS forced their victims to wear.

Guess why.

Those are the same uniforms worn by detainees at Guantanamo and other venues of indefinite detention in the War on Terror.

Intentional.
One reason why British and American hostages (use their NAMES: Jim, Steven, David, Alan, Abdurrahman [Peter]) were grouped according to nationalities was a specific "fuck you" to key partners in the Global War on Terror, and particularly - black sites, torture, rendition, etc.

When the #GWOT was launched post 9/11,it was much more different then previous wars because of following reasons:-
1. Post GWOT , Russian have failed to set roots.
2. War was more of people centric, people friendly and of course there was a lot of involvement of civilians.

Information Warfare was found to be most useful tool which the think tanks had identified that in addition to eliminating enemy it was more important to prove that they were bad.
So in addition to all Kinetics , Media ,internet , Human Right organisation were roped in.

Pompeo, in his Fox interview, made a few interesting statements on Afghanistan. 1) after the wedding attack, simply said US will continue to "decimate" "radical Islamic terrorism" "in a way that is smart and doesn’t require excess sacrifice on behalf of the American people." /1
That's a sensible balance, more than "end forever wars," signaling under Trump the US is not completely withdrawing from anywhere. and 2) Pompeo stated Trump's goal clear: reduce cost (money and lives) but ensure a posture that can reduce homeland attacks from Afgh. 2/
"Those twin goals are what the President set out for my team and for the Department of Defense. We’re working towards them. I am confident that we can achieve them." /3
