Letter stating the U.S. was pulling out of Iraq turns out to be Iranian propaganda

Another example of Trump Derangement Syndrome taking over American newsrooms

(TNS) On Monday afternoon the Internet news world blew up over the ‘discovery’ of a supposed genuine letter written by a Marine general in Iraq claiming that American forces would be withdrawing from the country.

The letter supposedly was generated following a vote by the Iraqi parliament to expel U.S. troops.

Turns out the letter was real — sort of — but the story about a complete U.S. withdrawal isn’t.

Not surprisingly, the story went viral and also not surprisingly, it was first reported by a Washington Post reporter — one of many who have lost all sense of journalistic ethics in the Trump era and instead routinely engage in journalistic malpractice.

When we saw the letter, we noticed a couple of things: One, it was unsigned; and two, the language and tone of the letter seemed awfully…accommodating. Too much so, in fact.

Well, it turns out that the Post’s Liz Sly obtained this letter from the office of the Iraqi prime minister — the one who has already resigned and is a puppet of the Iranians.

Defense Secretary Mike Esper would later confirm that the letter is not accurate, was a draft, and was released by mistake.

Esper added that yes, U.S. military personnel are indeed repositioning, but only to maximize force protection and are remaining inside Iraq.

So - how does this nonsense make it into the news cycle where it was bound to go viral? Sounds like the Iranians were playing the propaganda game to hurt President Donald Trump because that’s about the only tool they have that would seriously injure him in the eyes of the American people — make it look like he’s tucking tail and running.

Don’t get us wrong, we should be finding the exit door in Iraq. But at a time of our choosing, and not in a way that empowers a murderous regime at our expense.



Agreed. If only the correspondents and editors of America’s major “mainstream” media outlets weren’t so afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, they’d remember how to do their jobs.

This looked like a sham from the get-go and turns out, it was. A little double-checking with sources that aren’t compromised by the enemy was certainly in order.

Mainstream propaganda networks employ pop tarts to read you the news the deep state sees fit to peddle to you.

Cut the cord. Ignore the media. Bankrupt them.

The biggest counterfeiters of US Currency are iranians. Why should we be surprised with counterfeit memo/letters?

Any news that feeds off Reuters and Associated PussyPress News should be ignored.

Sounds to me like the scenario was a set-up to ferret out leakers.

“”Well, it turns out that the Post’s Liz Sly obtained this letter from the office of the Iraqi prime minister . .””

How did a draft letter-like THAT ONE-get into the office of the Iraqi prime minister? Then it’s released to Liz Sly?
