A war of Russian expansion in the Middle East & the Caucasus

 Thread by Katie Bo Williams on interview with the 'retiring' Jeffrey, starting with:

"In a particularly frank moment during an exit interview, departing Syria envoy Jim Jeffrey acknowledged to me that when it came to troop levels there, “We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there.""

Also (for those who think Turkey is out of favor with the Empire):
"He points out Turkey is having a pretty stellar run, with its preferred side prevailing in three separate conflicts—Idlib, Libya & now Nagorno-Karabakh. 
"That's a pretty good ally if you think you’ve got a war of Russian expansion in the Middle East & the Caucasus, which we do.""
"Outgoing Syria Envoy Admits Hiding US Troop Numbers; Praises Trump’s Mideast Record":
"“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 two hundred troops Trump agreed to leave there in 2019."
One of the defining characteristics of The Swamp is treason.
