TRIGGER WARING. I'm (remotely) live-tweeting the public inquiry into the mass murders of April 18/19, 2020. Details can at times be quite graphic. If you want to avoid this content, you can mute the hashtag #MCC or my account.
This morning, the commission is detailing the murder of Gina Goulet #MCC
After that, the medical examiner will testify about the deaths of Heather O'Brian and Kristen Beaton on Plains Road #MCC

Short #Thread on #RajivGandhi - #Kalaignar :
The best #government #hospital in Tamilnadu, the #GGH/#MMC was renamed after #RajivGandhi because Rajiv's body was brought there. This created heart burn among #DMK cadre because RG was despised in #DMK. (2)
One lower - level functionary wrote to @arivalayam, the party HQ, demanding renaming #Royapettah Hospital after #SilkSmita. (She was brought dead to this hospital). There was no response. Then, he got a friend to write to Chief Minister's Office. Kalaignar saw the letter. (3)
The #CMO (not Kalaignar) responded thus (paraphrasing) : If we name a place after a person who has committed suicide, it will set a wrong precedent!
(The person who wrote the first letter is still an organiser at the lower level. Kalaignar knew who wrote it too)

The #SDF's proclamation of victory today against #ISIS's territorial Caliphate is a momentous occasion worthy of genuine celebration.

What was once a territory the size of the UK is now zero. That's no small accomplishment.

The #SDF lost 11,000 killed & 21,000 wounded.
#pt: After #ISIS's capture of #Mosul, its march south in #Iraq, expansion in #Syria & genocidal threats against #Yazidis in #Sinjar & #Kurds in #Kobani, the US mobilized the largest military coalition in modern history; 79 members.

Due in large part of @brett_mcgurk's hard work.
@brett_mcgurk #pt: As the #SDF has made clear, however, the counter-#ISIS mission must now shift to a new mission - the struggle is far from over.

The now-completed "clear" phase was the easy bit; the "hold" & "build" represents the huge challenge ahead, but our commitment is now in question.

1. Remember Kobane in 2014? A sense of hopelessness with #YPG & #YPJ soon to be overrun? We begged and @JohnKerry & @BarackObama and they took a gamble & despite Turkey's ire, began to support a mostly Kurdish force in Kobane. Soon they moved from victory to victory.
2. Arabs Christians and other soon joined and ISIS began to recede to a pocket in Syria's eastern Euphrates River valley. Today, Americans including our service members around the world will stop to watch the #SuperBowl. That will include our forces in NES (Syria).
3. And while we're watching the game, a force of #SDF #MMC @USSOCOM are closing in on the last #Daesh refuge in the Euphrates valley. The war to rid NES from ISIS was IMO among the greatest successes in US military history. @realDonaldTrump Don't screw it up. #GoPats

1. Coordinate what? Last time in Afrin it was genocide.

Current situation on the ground near #Manbij based on credible reports are as follows:
#Manbij continues as normal under the protection of the #MMC. There is no evidence of military forces in city beyond regular US patrols.
2. US @USSOCOM forces continue to patrol in the areas north of Manbij near the Sajur River line of demarcation. Peaceful for now. US Apache gunships fly above the US forces that are positioned near a mixed force of regular Turkish army, Grey Wolf & Jihadist incl Al-Qaeda & ISIS.
3. West of Manbij near Arima is where it gets unclear. Yesterday's reports of a large column of regime irregular forces has today been supplemented with reports of regular SAA forces. It's important to note that at least the areas to the south of Arimah has had
