James Jeffrey, a NeverTrumper who was appointed by Mike Pompeo as special envoy for Syria in 2018, is openly bragging about lying to President Trump to preserve the endless war in Syria.
Defense One reported Thursday that Jeffrey told them, "We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there [in northeast Syria]."
Jeffrey also laughed about thwarting Trump's orders to withdraw from Syria, saying: "What Syria withdrawal? There was never a Syria withdrawal."
From Defense One, "Outgoing Syria Envoy Admits Hiding US Troop Numbers; Praises Trump's Mideast Record":
Four years after signing the now-infamous "Never Trump" letter condemning then-presidential candidate Donald Trump as a danger to America, retiring diplomat Jim Jeffrey is recommending that the incoming Biden administration stick with Trump's foreign policy in the Middle East.The Washington Post's Liz Sly thought this potentially treasonous act was hilarious.
"US officials have been lying to Trump - and the American people - about the true number of US troops in Syria in order to deter him from withdrawing them, according to the outgoing Syria envoy," Sly wrote Friday on Twitter. "Trump thinks it's 200 [laughing while crying emojis]."
Jeffrey is already advising a potential Biden administration.
Jeffrey said before the election that troop levels in Syria would remain the same regardless of who wins.
Though Jeffrey signed a "Never Trump" letter bashing Trump in 2016, at the same time he praised Biden in a column in Foreign Policy for being "the only one in the Obama administration trying to save" the war in Iraq.
Trump this week fired a host of the Pentagon's top brass and appointed the legendary Col. Douglas Macgregor in an effort to get out troops out once and for all.
It will be interesting to see whether he's successful or whether the deep state undermines him once again.
There seems to be no question that if Biden succeeds in stealing the presidency our (proxy) wars in the Middle East will only expand.
Over the past four years, the media repeatedly claimed the deep state "doesn't exist" -- now they're literally laughing it up about how they've conned our county into endless wars.
