Will the CIA Obey A Trump Order To-Stop Funding Terrorists???

by BAR contributor Ann Garrison

President Trump seems so afraid of the War Party, he almost whispered his recent cancellation of CIA sponsorship of jihadist fighters in Syria. Whatever Trump’s intentions, progressives should support Tulsi Gabbard’s ‘Stop Arming Terrorists’ bill. The corporate media’s true goals are “to continue US ‘regime change’ foreign policy and specifically to attack Syria no matter the cost in blood and treasure,” says investigative reporter Rick Sterling.

“Those who favor escalation in Syria dominate discussion in the Washington Post and on CNN and MSNBC.”

Late last week, the Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump will end covert support of militias attempting to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. I spoke to Rick Sterling, investigative journalist for Consortium News and member of the Syria Solidarity Movement, about the report.

Ann Garrison: Rick Sterling, what’s your first reaction to the Washington Post’s claims?

Rick Sterling: If Trump orders the CIA to stop training and equipping extremists in Syria, that will be a good thing. We will have to see if this is implemented because sometimes they say one thing publicly but do other things secretly. For example, starting in late 2011, the CIA was coordinating the shipment of weapons from Libya to the armed opposition in Syria—in secret.

AG: The White House has refused to confirm the Washington Post report. If it is true, why do you think Trump won’t confirm?

RS: This is partly reflective of the power elites’ internal battle over foreign policy and whether Trump will actually move away from the aggressive “regime change” foreign policy. Those who favor escalation in Syria dominate discussion in theWashington Post and on CNN and MSNBC………
