James Jeffrey, a NeverTrumper who was appointed by Mike Pompeo as special envoy for Syria in 2018, is bragging about lying to President Trump to preserve the endless war in Syria. In an interview, Jeffrey said, “We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there [in northeast Syria].” Jeffrey laughed about thwarting Trump’s orders to withdraw from Syria, saying: “What Syria withdrawal? There was never a Syria withdrawal.”

Jeffrey now praises Trump for his Middle East policy – and says that troop levels in Syria will remain the same regardless of who wins the election. In 2016, Jeffrey praised Biden by saying he was “the only one in the Obama administration trying to save” the war in Iraq. -GEG

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.

But even as he praises the president’s support of what he describes as a successful “realpolitik” approach to the region, he acknowledges that his team routinely misled senior leaders about troop levels in Syria.

“We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there,” Jeffrey said in an interview. The actual number of troops in northeast Syria is “a lot more than” the roughly two hundred troops Trump initially agreed to leave there in 2019.

Mixed Emotions Over Continued School Shutdowns

November 27, 2020 Tammy Bruce 0

Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed. Public schools have a radicalizing influence. Homeschooling is on the rise, and that may be the ultimate solution.

The “second wave” of the “pandemic” is the excuse for Draconian lockdown measures, economic destitution, and sweeping police powers. Police turned water cannons as tens of thousands of people protested in Berlin against lockdowns. Meanwhile, the media either demonizes anti-lockdown protesters or ignores them altogether.

James Jeffrey is corrupt and deeply disrespectful. He sounds like Biden bragging about his billion dollar extortion in Ukraine. I’m ready for arrests and executions. I am getting madder and madder.

Can you say “short rope”, “tall tree”, and “Jim Jeffrey” in the same sentence?

Why did Pompeo hire him in the first place? He’s just as guilty as Jeffery then.
