Chris Wallace Suddenly Discovers Assad Kills His Own People While Interviewing H. R. McMaster

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

H.R. McMasster was on FoxNews Sunday and clearly overmatched and outgunned a Chris Wallace who came of looking unprepared and flailing about.

Wallace’s mission was to stir up discord with a nothingburger of a controversy concerning statements by Nikki Haley and Rex Tillerson. If these comments had been made by players in the Obama administration, nothing would have been said. But, because Trump sucks and his administration is in disarray, suddenly there is a huge problem.


If you are applying a good faith analysis, there really isn’t a difference of policy here. Haley is expressing the opinion, that Tillerson does not disagree with, that a political solution is not possible with Assad in power. Tillerson is saying that, just like earlier last week, regime change in Syria is not a priority or policy of the United States.


This is not an interview, this is hectoring. This is tendentious bullsh**.

McMaster actually lays out a very clear politico-military strategy for Syria.

1. Our focus is on ISIS.
2. We are not going to get involved in a war against Assad.
3. We are not going to allow the use of chemical weapons.

There are a couple of subtle messages here, too.

Obama allowed the Russians and Iranians to do what they wished in Syria because Obama’s strategic vision saw Iran as a partner. Because of that obeisance to Tehran, we basically sold out the Syrian resistance in order to preserve Assad’s regime because the Iranians need it. The fact that preserving Assad is not something that is too popular in the White House has to be noticed. McMaster also hints that we will see more of Haley and Tillerson calling out Russia and Iran on their support of Assad.

On the whole, I think McMaster did a great job in the interview. He stomped on the non-troversy between Haley and Tillerson, made it clear we were not going to get involved in a series of escalating strikes in Syria, and put Russia on notice that their behavior in Syria is not going to be ignored.
