There is a big difference between assassinating Al Qaeda and Islamic State leaders and the commanders of government military forces of United Nations member states like Iran and Iraq.
OK, not the actual Russian government but a private troll farm company located in Russia — bought $100,000 worth of political ads on Facebook designed to change the outcome of the 2016 election. Except that only a small fraction of those ads were political. Also except that the small fraction was divvied up between pro-Hillary Clinton and pro-Donald Trump ads. And especially except that $100,000 in Facebook ads can’t affect the outcome of a $6.8 billion election.
Trump, who is under attack from all sides within his own country, is not in a position to hold the CIA accountable for its past and future crimes.
The trouble is that Trump’s unhinged hostile rhetoric towards Iran suggests that the off-ramp from war is only a temporary pause.
