File under: Govt of Syria
#1 The ME, a region of the world with ever-changing alliances and ever-changing terrorist groups. I recall several times when McCain went over to Syria. In 2017, he met with (some say illegally) the Muslim Brotherhood and AQ (most of whom later became ISIS). Nancy Pelosi went over to Syria in 2007 to meet with Assad although George W. asked her not to. There was no outcry by the MSM. So now, the MSM is reporting that Trump is screwing things up in Syria by abandoning the Kurds. No wonder the American people (the ones who send their sons and daughters to fight never-ending wars and pay the price) are not listening to the MSM and siding with Trump. McCain trips. Pelosi trip, the trip where she donned the hijab.

#2 Naifs abroad.
Missionary zeal + rank ignorance of others' history and complexity.
A long and very American tradition.
