I’ll bet Bolton screwed up the Taliban meeting, somehow.
YEP!! I’ll bet Bolton was NOT very loyal to Trump’s agenda.
Rush Limbaugh just guessed that was the reason.
“Ill bet Bolton screwed up the Taliban meeting, somehow.”
Bolton was not part of the negotiations with the Taliban, That was under Pompeo and led by a long time state department middle east diplomat; who actually has an Afghan background.
Trump announced the talks with the Taliban dead, after he said the talks were near to a meeting with them in Washington D.C. and that was followed by a Taliban attack in Kabul that killed Americans. To Trump that attack showed (finally) that the Taliban word could not be trusted and HE, Trump, ended the State Department’s negotiations with the Taliban. Bolton did not screw up the talks with the Taliban, the Taliban did.
But with respect to what Pompeo et all did not achieve with the Taliban, Bolton is in a “I told you so position”. THAT likely made things uncomfortable on Trump’s team.
What? He told them to suicide bomb US servicemen and civilians? If he screwed up the meeting like he should have, it would never have been scheduled.
Well, anyway, Trump said “they’re dead”. Is he talking about the talks, or the Talibanis?
