    In 2018 Bob Woodward said - in this book Fear - that Trump wanted to assasinate Assad, but Trump denied it.

    US President Donald Trump has denied assertions by prominent journalist Bob Woodward in his new book that he ordered the assassination of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

    Mr Trump said the idea was "never even discussed" with defence officials.

    Defence Secretary James Mattis has also denied words attributed to him in Woodward's book.

    The book Fear: Trump in the White House depicts a chaotic administration in a "nervous breakdown of executive power".

    Mr Trump has already condemned the new work as a "con on the public".

    Well fast forward to now and Trump admits , on Fox and Friends , he wanted to assadinate Assad. He blames Ret Gen. Mattis for stopping the assasination.

    Trump changes story, says he wanted to assassinate Syria's Assad

    Trump's comments are similar to a report in journalist Bob Woodward's 2018 book "Fear."

    “I would have rather taken him out. I had him all set. Mattis didn't want to do it," Trump said in an interview with Fox & Friends, referring to then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. "Mattis was against most of that stuff."

    Trump Confirms He Wanted to Assassinate Assad After Denying Original Woodward Report

    ---------

    Woodward was right all along , in 2018. Trump lied when he rubbished Woodward's claim in the book Fear.

    Obama gets shit for supporting the anti Assad rebels , even though he didn't want to intervene and didn't want to assasinate Assad. One of Trump's big alure was not wanting to get involved in Syria . Trump was considered the anti interventionist candidate and someone who didn't want to help the rebels. Seems Trump was far more conducive to a Sunni Jihadi takeover of Syria than we were led to believe.

    Makes sense since Trump is a secret Muslim wahhabist.

    You do realize this is Trump being quoted directly where he confirms what Woodward said he said 2 years ago, right?

    If you're going to deflect, at least do it in a way that correlates to what is actually happening.

    Good.. killing Assad would create another Iraq situation and 20 more years of babysitting with our military.

    It’s not the US’s job to play nanny for these countries. We have our own problems.

    Well the source is Trump himself. So either he was lying then or he's lying now.

    ...it's Trump who is saying it.

    It turns out this "bombshell" was absolutely correct - like they usually end up being - but you still impulsively deny and yell "fake news" even when Trump himself confirms it?

    Is there a story here or does this thread get dumped/merged to the TDS megathread?

    So Mattis saved the day. Trump would have fcuked things over badly, especially for the Christians.

    Seems like publishing information about conversations of that nature between people in those offices should be some kind of security violation

    So a thread about assasinating Assad is TDS ?

    Every time something negative comes out about Trump, you guys want the thread disappeared , because you righties can not stand seeing Trump lies and bad news being exposed. This is thread deals with news that is not directly related to any other thread.

    I think the security violation lies with the people who speak with the journalist......and I don't think Presidents are subject to security violations as they have final say on what information is classified.

    Not really, the wolf has been crying since 2016 so the poor bastard is dehydrated and on its last legs. The only people that believe in any of this are well... you see who starts these threads and who comes in to act like it’s a “bombshell”
