Iraq 'Pull-Out' Letter: Mistake...Or More Deception?
Hello everybody and thank you for tuning into the Liberty Report with me today as Daniel make atoms are co host Daniel. Good to see you. How are you this morning? Dr Paul Good Talk Talk about Iraq who is in the news and that's what People WanNa hear about and we're looking around and so we find all the information so we can figure out what they're doing. It's not all that easy but a significant event occurred yesterday after you know a couple of days after the killing and that is that there was a letter circulating that said that the American government is planning to leave. Baghdad leave Iraq then all of a sudden they said it was released by the commander her US commander in Iraq and it said that we were laying plans for this but it was quickly You know denied by the officials because I would have sounded like surrender capitulation and you know the parliaments as you guys off leave and we're going to leave and and that wasn't to be true but figuring out why why they did it. I mean the letter was significant. We heard two or three interpretations. We've been told that it was. It was a Just a draft of a letter in preparation for US leaving and quite frankly. I believe there's a lot of deception going on and we haven't figured good out of what their plans on. And you know Daniel one thing as possible as maybe. We can't figure out exactly what they're planning because they might not know even what they're planning because it goes back and forth and maybe it changes from minute to minute and there are a lot of questions coming up now when you think about Russia and Putin getting involved in peace negotiations negotiations and all these other things more threats there on again only end but more specifically talk a little bit about how something like this. This letter came up. I have a little trouble bleeding believing that it's just an accident and and this is this is a big deal if if you know mistakenly released by accident or something that means they have no control whatsoever. So that's the reason that You know it's not exactly a false flag but it's false information and deliberate deception and maybe to settle things down and say well we're not ready to send in the truths we're ready to negotiate and talk about you know getting out and maybe if we up the bribes to different people We can convert or not people interact to put up with us for a long time after thirteen years. I think we're very close to admitting defeat. Just like we had to admit defeat in Iraq and move out of there so There's a lot of things that can happen in a few days and it can change immediately. I listened to Pompeii or this morning and his press conference Auburn. But I couldn't stand it because it was all just pompous talking and I was looking for a hand from him but it was. There was no reassurance reassurance. There was no understanding. No real information. It was all pure deceptive propaganda about how wonderful we are and why we're seeking impeach. We kill people because we want peace and not war. Yeah it is. It's a strange mystery and on the surfaces almost a mess up or something but if you really we stopped think about it. It's very very suspicious. The whole thing and so I wanted to go back and kind of put together what we know about it because you know how these things are often scrubbed from the media first of all. Here's something I was told from. Someone who's an insider that there really is a fight inside the White House administration the trump's for leaving but a mil- ESPN POMPEII or stonewalling him. So for what what it's worth but here's what we do know the. US is suspended. ITS ANTI ISIS training mission to Iraq I would say indefinitely suspending this mission. That's the only reason they were. They were in Iraq. Remember there's no status-of-forces agreement with Iraq. It was simply an arrangement made by the Iraqi government with the US government please come in in were overrun with Isis. We need some help fighting them. And this is the only basis so if you suspend that mission there is no basis to keep US troops in there and I I think a lot of Americans don't understand that they were there because we've always been there but then you have the Pentagon saying we're committed to the mission which descending completely mixed signals because the Pentagon cancelled that mission in Isis defeated. So what is the purpose of us being there were there because we're there so that brings things uh of why released a letter. What is the letter? And I'M GONNA go into some details later but just throw it out there. One day the Iraqi parliament votes votes to end the mission and to ask the United States and all foreign forces to leave a soil the next day or a day and a half here and there. This letter leaks from the US general in charge of of Iraq the Iraq mission in. It's a bizarre letter. It's unsigned I'll read a little bit of it sir. In due you death threats to the sovereignty of the Republic of Iraq and as requested by the Iraqi parliament. Prime Minister we will be repositioning forces over the course of the coming in days and weeks to prepare for Onward Movement etc etc some details we will take measures to minimize disturbance ribbons to the public as we begin implementing the next phase of operations I want to reiterate the value of our friendship and partnership we respect your sovereign decision to order our or departure very suspicious sounding. Don't think absolutely. I think the deception is very strong. That is a word we probably have described accurately but the report also has been removed hundreds or they plan to immediately remove hundreds of our people out of Baghdad and at the same time. We're not leaving and if you think we're going to have to pay US building this building or building the embassy but Now it's back and forth the sanctions on Iraq. Something Super Super Sanction. We spent all this time always does money. A thousand American lives are maybe more and many thousands of Iraqis and others that were killed on this and all of a sudden we deliver literally only deliver politically the Iraq system over to Iran. Yeah and Now we're fighting them and fighting to get us there. They sometimes when I make statements that this is just. They're really really ridiculous. I don't know what they're doing in others will correct me at Tom. I'M GONNA say they know exactly what they're doing. Chaos is good for them. Sometimes but I think that they don't always know what they're doing other within the fact that they know what they don't want they don't want a free society and they don't want us to be a nonintervention society and I know they want to support the military industrial complex complex so we can rule out a lot of things that they claim. They're sincere about the most ridiculous of course. Is this idea. We had to kill them it because we wanted to prevent a war. Sure somebody somebody is going to believe that. Today when they were interviewing palm peyot he. He asked the reporters. How many people in here believe the solemn I saw me was on a peace mission? You know he could have been. We don't know for sure. But this whole idea that they know absolutely that they're Hitler and the and then Zarifa courses a hitherto. They won't even let him go to the United Nations. I mean they were moving back to an uncivilized society as long as we're in there but we're struggling to maintain in our empire and I think we're on the defensive on on defending the empire. Yeah and on the defensive. I think because this is such a bizarre story this the letter. And here's a couple of things here's what we do and also some things we do know about it and some of this is according to a good article in the dispatch that that sort of broke it down. At least. This is the time line that that that I've seen first of all the story of this withdrawal letter broke on the TV channel of an Iraqi militia group. we say in Iran backed Iraqi rocky M- militia group the A H that group is on the. US terror list. Apparently it was leaked to them by the Iraqi Prime Minister's his office. And they publicized it from there. It quickly like wildfire ran through the US news media and became a huge story here origins being in the Iraqi Prime Minister's office then the US military was sent scrambling what is going on. What is they had no answer? At first it was a weird letter. It was unsigned. It had some unusual grammatical errors so the question is what happened. What really happened happened with this letter? And we'll never know but I have a couple of scenarios I will bring up. If you'll indulge me for a second. Dr Paul. First of all members can talk. Maybe it was leaked by some. US A group. Maybe some neo cons. Maybe some people in the military affiliated with neo cons to make trump look bad here. He is talking tough fe. You'RE GONNA pay us. We're going to sanction. Can you and then behind the scenes. He is sending a letter saying we're going to withdraw. We respect your sovereignty that's one could be fabricated by Iraq Iran. Dan To make the US look bad here. Look they're running their tail between their legs that's possible could be fabricated by Israel or even the Saudis forced to denial. Denial denial on record. No we're not pulling out. We're not pulling out. That's a possibility as you suggested in your opening points could be a monumental foul of makes you wonder under about about operational security of something like this what would have to be classified drops out in and a s percent at first we just don't know. Oh you know. And then millie the chairman of the joint chiefs later said in. This is the weirdest part. The letter is a draft. It was a mistake. It was unsigned. It should not what have been released or if that's the case who released it. And why would you release a draft of a letter so inaccurate as you claim. Why would you give that to the Iraqi you prime minister? Hey here's a letter that says the opposite of what we're GONNA do. What do you think about it? You know so nothing. Nothing adds up in this and I hate to but my head is about to explode well while we do know that the Russians don't sit idly by they pay a lot of attention. They've invested a lot there in the neighborhood and they are just just coming off a relatively successful event in Syria in in in many ways you know we lost. Syria seems seems. Except we're clinging to a few oil wells that we're going to pay for our pay for our troubles but I think Putin is no dumbbell and now he's talking about bringing these people together he he really is talking peace and people. Would you know the neo concerts. There you go shop and you know how how the Liberals Hate Putin to looking looking. How hate they directed him because they had to mix them up with With trump so this is the whole thing but if you if you can sit back and sit and just to analyze is Putin has come out pretty well. And he doesn't what does he have. Whoa one aircraft carrier so he doesn't come out and he's not bombastic because he really doesn't have it but he's been able to do that now he's talking about bringing these factions together together and we've delivered it to him on a platter here? We used to have a lot of problems there that we created all along nattiest with Saddam. Hussein you know. He was a minority soon and he was militant and a rubles iron fist. But there wasn't the chaos in the Middle East either so we finally said well. It's in our interests we have to get rid of him and So with majority they become close allies with her amazing whatever predicted. They're they're the harsh. Oh Putin's involed. He's identified of course with with the opposition in. Maybe maybe he's is old enough to remember what happened in nineteen eighty nine when They had a seventy nine. I guess it was when they had to win win. They Soviets declared the A I lost victory with with Iran in. What's interesting is the actually that you mentioned Putin? Because he made a surprise visit to Damascus. Gut's today in meetings with the sod and you have to wonder and of course we'll be accused of being on the payroll and where's my check right but but just looking at it analytically. You don't have to you know. Take any side but he comes in just like he did in two thousand fifteen ironically sola money johnny is the one who gave him the strategy to feed Isis. He comes in in a mess like this where he sees war on the horizon. There's no benefit to Russia. If this thing blows up in the Middle East no question about it so here he does come in. Is he a peacemaker. I don't think it's because he's a peace. Nick but I think he looks at the situation more analytically you mentioned in Pompeii Pompei. Oh and pence. They lie every single sentences ally. The problem is when you base the policy off of the lies you tell it's basically garbage in garbage out you can't come up with a good policy. One all of the basis for making the policy is falls. And that's the problem that we're facing when when I hear here the two Pants in pompeo speak. I think They think that every American citizen is an idiot. And they're going join to gobble this up a lot do and it's constant it's incessant in you know it is done by the experts on TV and odd people fall in line but most of these people who fall in line that quickly you know. They can't be dependable. Finally turn against them and they they did this with look look look how negative they look on the war on Iraq and yet everybody was four with so it'd be amazing if they can accomplish this and get the people really really generating enough enthusiasm to really go back to war on Iraq. And that's what we're doing. I mean it's Iraq. Now I see see them as very close to your Iran and sanctions so all that effort and the answer is we just don't have enough sanctions on on Iraq. They were we saved. We created our country but if if people would say yes sanctions are sort of like the kind of thing you do when you're at war and if you haven't having didn't have a hot war usually creates a hot war so the way they have to have a tremendous desire to be rulers and running an empire to looked common sense of how stupid these policies are and how many lives are lost. How many American families and people suffer the consequences and how many people we have to kill Hill? One of the worst things that came were statement at era came out of this transition was when they ask Madeline Albright. Will you know that bombing in and The reporter the bombing of Syria for almost a decade that five hundred thousand children and people died from this and she dismissed it. Yeah well that's the price you have to pay them. That to me is so tragic. Yeah in Iraq. I mean we. We destroyed for for thirty years now. We've been destroying threatening it again but the thing that really is just the pricing in a way as how strong the propaganda is and as I predicted. Yesterday there was a lot of pushback to our to art art show on the assassination Sola Mani interestingly. Enough Muna van has an article up this morning where they point out that we actually were allied with Sula money there there is a wikipedia page shows that joint commanders of an operation in Afghanistan where a US general and so on so it wasn't always that way but the propaganda propaganda on the pushback is so you think it's great. You think it's terrible that we killed a guy who's responsible for the deaths of six hundred. Americans and Scott hords not libertarian. Instituted good friend of ours. He had really good blog post. He said this is an absolute lie. First of all that is blaming the Iranian Shia militia for every single American killed by these roadside bombs which is not technically. It's not capable of doing and the second thing and actually this was backed up by Matthew. Who who as we know met and he was there he said I was there? And I will tell you these were Iraqi made Iraqi manufactured in place by Iraqis Araki's. This was not an Iranian operation. So this is a propaganda lie. Just like all of the ones that they make Saddam's WMD's etc etc.. This is a propaganda lying it sticks in the minds of Americans and they WANNA use it to make us look bad to make us look like we love this guy when we just have to look at the facts so I guess I would close was by saying something to talk to. Paul said. This is all interesting but guess what withdrawals happening anyway the. US admitted that a repositioning was taking place. They gotta take. I troops out of Baghdad. Because it's no longer safe to have our military in Baghdad. That's what happened. That's the results of bad foreign policy. When you believe your own lies supposed to make us safer supposed to stop a war trump? What looks like it's starting one? We can't even have our military there and frank and they're not even wanted so as Dr Paul said in his calm yesterday is probably a good idea for them to just to listen to the Iraqi democracy bring these troops home the mission is over. There's no reason for us to be there. Why have these guys out there waiting to get killed for nothing very good Daniel? I want to finish up with another rumor. Let's going around. It's been in the news and it's frightening because I think there's still a lot of people series and that is the restoration of the draft and this is serious because once it does couple of things one it it endorses the principle. Maybe we're going to be in a hot groundwater which I keep arguing that they're not that stupid And the other thing is it's the statement that the state owns. The income tax is a statement that they they own our income and our live and they take it and lost to keep some at at their bidding. But when they say they can draft you when they need you and a certain age and discriminate discriminate and all these things that they do. I think it's a bad sign. You might say well who who would want to do that with trump when I do that and I think that trump isn't the one that's going to want to send troops and tanks and all their. He wants to talk tough in the draft. Might be a way to talk tough because he really Praises praises the military. He really gets emotional by building up the military. and He's capable of doing it but the neo cons would love. This and heat is influenced by NEO. Cons are the ones who are advising them. B B before the assassination was occurred so he he is susceptible to this so I hope that goes away but there were several articles over the weekend about maybe the draft will have to come back which would be a horrible horrible sign and I. We have have to be alert to that of course It's always possible because if we continue to do we're doing now and even as our empire weakens There's is going to be somebody in office is going to be more desperate to survive. And that is with us. Ground troops in order to maintain their empire. But we have a lot of places to go. We have we have control and and troops in hundred fifty hundred sixty countries so to cover our bases we would need a lot more personnel so so The answer of course is very easy very simple it's very constitutional and ends very moral. That is that We should have a non on interventionist's foreign policy. We should mind our own business. Take care of our country have a protection but not get involved in internal affairs of other nations and We've we have to Pay A price by People you taking away our liberties as it's been happening ever since nine eleven It's it's not gonNa work if people are going to be disgusted and they are voices. Aren't heard right now. I just don't believe this country is as bad is what I hear on the evening news. That is just horrible. So that is why we have to generate some excitement and interest to hear another message other than what we've been hearing so far from the mainstream media. WanNa thank everybody for tuning in today. to the Liberty Report. Please come back soon.
