As our experiences in other theaters taught us, “defeating” terrorists isn’t just about removing them from the battlefield once or twice. I thought this President cared about defeating Iran, and occasionally cared about chemical weapons killing children. I was wrong.
.@StateDept does not agree with DT's assessment on ISIS's defeat. From YESTERDAY: "U.S. forces are present in the campaign to ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS. We’ve made significant progress recently in the campaign, and – but the job is not yet done." state.gov/r/pa/prs/dpb/2…
Troop reviews often involve several national security council meetings to agree on baseline intelligence assessments, develop options and lay out costs/ benefits, make policy recs to @POTUS + after he makes a decision press guidance is developed to ensure messaging consistency.
looks like literally none of that happened. @AmbJohnBolton ?
I wonder if the President informed our allies and the 70+ countries who are part of the coalition fighting w us to defeat ISIS that he's doing this, if in fact he follows through. I also wonder if a withdrawal came with any strings attached vis a vis Turkey, Russia, Iran, Syria
