Petraeus Working Behind the Scenes With McMaster to Put Troops on the Ground in Syria

According to a report by independent journalist, Mike Cernovich, current National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster is manipulating intelligence reports given to President Trump regarding Syria

by Cristina Laila, The Gateway Pundit:

Via Mike Cernovich: “McMaster is plotting how to sell a massive ground war in Syria to President Trump with the help of disgraced former CIA director and convicted criminal David Petraeus, who mishandled classified information by sharing documents with his mistress.

“As NSA, McMaster’s job is to synthesize intellience reports from all other agencies. President Trump is being given an inncurate picture of the situation in Syria, as McMaster is seeking to involve the U.S. in a full scale war in Syria.

The McMaster-Petraeus plan calls for 150,000 American ground troops in Syria.

Many special operations veterans including General Joseph Votel have raised serious concerns about McMaster’s plans for Syria.

Sources also suggest that McMaster is sharing classified information with Petraeus, whose security clearance was revoked.

Cernovich points out that Petraeus’ influence in the NSC remains strong:

McMaster was called Petraeus’ golden child by some commenters, noting the strong influence Petraeus had over McMaster. Petraeus was considered for the position of NSA, but withdrew his name from consideration once McMaster’s name was included on the short-list. McMaster’s appointment allowed Petraeus to maintain control over the NSC without bringing his considerable baggage to the position.

Derek Harvey, the top Middle East adviser in the NSC, has close ties with Petraeus and is close with McMaster. (Harvey reportedly faces a massive EEO complaint from subordinates, although that investigation remains open.)

Harvey and McMaster have been trying to subvert Joint Chiefs Chairman General Joseph Dunford and Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Mattis and Dunford support working with our allies in the fight against ISIS. Harvey and McMaster are advocating for a massive American-only ground force.

About Flynn and Bannon:

Two men were standing in between another U.S.-led war in the Middle East and McMaster — General Mike Flynn and Steve Bannon.

Flynn was removed after Susan Rice unmasked classified information concerning him. Bannon’s role within the White House was weakened by McMaster, who demanded Bannon be removed from his advisory position at NSC.

McMaster’s friends in the media, as part of a broader strategy to increase McMaster’s power, have claimed Jared Kushner and Bannon had a major falling out. In fact Kushner and Bannon are united in their opposition to McMaster’s plan.

If McMaster and Petraeus have their way, America will find itself in another massive war in the Middle East.

    I can already see the favoritism emerging in the wake of the missile attack. Some are putting the burden of responsibility on a particular person or group in an attempt at taking it off the shoulders of others. And while I have no doubt that McMaster and others in the PentaCon (past and present) are up to their ears in fomenting a conflict in Syria and elsewhere, let’s not make Trump out to be some poor innocent victim who is merely taking the wrong advice. HE’S at the helm here, HE made these picks, HE is going back on his word, and HE has to answer to the electorate.

      It is all Kabuki theater. We fall for it every time.

        One other thing, why doesn’t Trump pick up the phone and call the president of Syria or open up a channel for discussions?

          Yes, and why is it that this partnership with Russia to rid Syria of ISIS never happened? Undoubtedly, this would have been fine with Assad, but he knew it was too good to be true.

          Seeing that Obama used ISIS an an excuse to invade Syria for the purpose of undermining Assad, logic leads to the same conclusion in so far as Trump is considered. Assad is the target, ISIS is only the launching pad. So the only phone call he’ll get is his final death threat.
