State Department Official Admits To 'Shell Games' That Kept Trump in Dark About Real Troop Levels

President Donald Trump’s envoy to Syria has revealed that the White House never really knew how many American troops were in Syria even after Trump ordered an almost complete withdrawal in 2019.

James Jeffrey, State Department special representative for Syria engagement and special envoy to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, admitted the subterfuge in an interview with Defense One published Thursday.

“We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there,” Jeffrey said.

In fact, he said, the number of U.S. troops in Syria is “a lot more than” the approximately 200 the president agreed should remain when he announced a withdrawal of U.S. forces in 2019.

“What Syria withdrawal? There was never a Syria withdrawal,” Jeffrey said.

Someone ought to be handed their walking papers, with no opportunity to resign. Concealing information from the Commander in Chief about troop levels is pretty good reason to fire them with no benefits or pension.
