It’s unthinkable that any other great power would get away without any backlash from either Islamic powers, Islamic civil society, or jihadist groups. And that is one of the biggest puzzles in foreign policy worth probing.
Rep. Adam Schiff has spent the vast majority of Trump’s presidency peddling unfounded (and debunked) conspiracy theories and ‘leaking’ false information to countless media outlets
Meet the military working dog, and very good boy, who played a key role in the killing of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
