If you have someone fighting for you, leading a country for you, getting pelted with critical rocks for you, from opposing parties, his own party and an emerging socialist mindset of a mayhem optic driven media, it helps if there’s a little Machiavellian streak in your commander-in-chief.

President Donald Trump announced that he was pulling our troops from Syria a week ago and a loud barrage of complaints circled his decision. Media showed our troops undergoing a painful retreat from the country, and talking heads bashed the president on an offensive liberal loop for several days.

In what could be described as a brilliant move, Trump takes the abuse, all the while knowing Special Operations Commandos were tracking and plotting to stomp out ISIS leader Al Baghdadi, in hiding for five years, inside Syria, just miles from the Turkey border.
