Tulsi Gabbard calls out administration protection of Al Qaeda
While President Trump & VP Pence give 9/11 speeches about how much they care about the victims of al-Qaeda’s attack on our country, they are simultaneously acting as protectors of AQ in Syria/Idlib, threatening Russia and Syria that if they attack al-Qaeda, we will punish them.
Nikki Haley and the administration can't be concerned about civilian deaths. Mosul and Raqqa were destroyed in Trump's assault on ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The administration made the case that such an assault was the only way to rid the countries of ISIS and that the civilian casualties were unfortunate but necessary. Now suddenly an assault on Idlib, last remaining stronghold of Al Qaeda, is unacceptable. Is it because Idlib is the last remaining stronghold and supply route for war against Assad?
‘Don’t test us’: Haley threatens US strikes over any attack on Syria’s Idlib

Any attack on Syria’s Idlib province is going to be “dealt with,” US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warned, as Washington seeks to stop the Russian-backed Syrian army from retaking the last remaining jihadist stronghold.
Washington and its allies have also warned Syria that they will act not just in case of chemical weapons being used, but against any attack on the province, the US envoy to the UN said.
“Any offensive on the civilian people in Idlib was going to be dealt with,” Haley told Fox News’ Bret Baier.
Idlib is the last remaining stronghold of various jihadist groups that once sought to overthrow the government of President Bashar Assad, with support from the US, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and other regional powers. The most powerful of these groups is Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra; it is an affiliate of Al-Qaeda, the terrorist organization the US holds responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
