Bob Gates on Donald Trump: “He is unqualified and unfit to be commander-in-chief.” Plainly said by a man who served EIGHT presidents.
I’ve been through two presidential transitions. They’re complicated in the best case. To deny basic access in the midst of a raging pandemic that’s now killing 1k Americans per day is not just petty—it endangers national security and public health.👇
Here’s how this scene was viewed live in Australia. One of America’s closest and most dependable allies. Rendered speechless. Just watch.
This is an obscene and ignorant statement. 200k innocent people displaced. Hundreds dead. Credible reports of war crimes. ISIS prisoners escaping. US evacuating and bombing its own positions or handing them to Russia. Two kids in a lot?
Turkish state-backed media hails a “successful operation” to “neutralize” an unarmed 35-year old woman working to unite Arabs, Christians, and Kurds in NE Syria. Ms. Hevrin Khalef was reportedly dragged from a vehicle and shot to death. That’s a war crime.
