I had wondered if there was the potential for the Donald Trump JR story to possibly cover for something else. Either by coincidence or… well maybe he was setup? And it seems that Allen West, himself, has a revelation to that end.
As written by Allen B. West:
I know everyone is focused on Donald J. Trump Jr. I am not. There’s nothing there, and certainly all this hoopla about treason is nonsense. If that were the case, then Barack Obama is guilty of treason, high crimes and misdemeanors, by saying to Russia and Vladimir Putin, that he would have more flexibility after his reelection. Now, that represents premeditated treason, but I digress. Donald Trump Jr. is a fella who did a really dumb thing, evidencing a lack of adult decision-making skills. End of story. An over zealous kid trying to do something to impress Dad who was running for president. Move along, nothing further to see here, as you cannot criminalize doing a stupid thing…if that were the case, lots of progressive socialists would be in jail.
But the real purpose of this missive is to focus us on to what IS important, and quite underreported by the liberal progressive media, et al.
As reported by Fox News, “The Pentagon was trying to confirm fresh reports Tuesday that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed, as the terror group teeters on the brink of defeat in Iraq and prepares to make its final stand in the Syrian city of Raqqa.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights – which has had a good record in reporting ISIS news – and Iraq’s Al Sumaria News were the two outlets primarily reporting the most-wanted terrorist’s death, with both citing sources inside ISIS.
Baghdadi had been rumored to be killed numerous times since his rise to infamy as the so-called “Caliph” of ISIS-controlled territory – only for those reports to eventually be proven wrong. In June, Baghdadi was reportedly killed by Russian forces; however, no conclusive proof ever emerged of the Islamist’s death. Adding to the speculation, President Trump tweeted ambiguously around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday: “Big wins against ISIS!” It was unclear if Trump was referring to the possible death of Baghdadi or another event, such as the fall of ISIS-held Mosul to U.S.-backed troops.”
Let me try and be the adult in the room and provide you an analysis. First of all, President Trump had best be careful, and once again, tamper down his tweeting enthusiasm. If there’s anything he should have learned, it’s the faux pas of President George Bush with his “Mission Accomplished” moment.
Now is not the time to issue gloating social media messages; it’s the time to confer with your national security team and ascertain, what next? As for the news, true or false, about the death and demise of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in the long strategy perspective, it doesn’t matter. No, I’m not trying to be some “kill joy” but think about it this way, did the death of Osama bin Laden bring an end to the global Islamic jihad?
Strategic visionary leadership doesn’t focus in the moment, but asks the harder question of what must we consider and prepare for next? It’s a matter of being proactive and seeking to deny the enemy their next courses of action…not just reacting, or tweeting.
