You no doubt recall that during the campaign, Trump vowed to unleash a devastating, then-"secret plan" of attack against ISIS. At the time, Trump claimed the plan was his own, that it would "totally obliterate ISIS."
After he scored the most impressive victory in the history of presidential elections, however, Trump inexplicably turned to the Pentagon for a bit of help in the form of an additional plan. Its plan of attack has now been submitted, and, according to "two senior officials who have reviewed the document," it
calls for continued bombing; beefing up support and assistance to local forces to retake its Iraqi stronghold Mosul and ultimately the ISIS capital of Raqqa in Syria; drying up ISIS's sources of income; and stabilizing the areas retaken from ISIS.
Adds NBC News: "Last week, the commander of U.S. Central Command, Gen. Joseph Votel, signaled to Congress that the current [i.e., familiar] approach is working." So what was Trump's secret plan, one later tweaked by military experts? President Obama's plan, which, you no doubt will also recall, "Trump repeatedly called … a failure."
I've lost count of the Donald's scams.
