President Trump claimed Wednesday that the purported ‘escape‘ of hundreds of ISIS terrorists from a prison in northern Syria was purposefully manufactured in order to draw US troops back into the conflict there.
While speaking in front of the press at the White House, Trump described the withdrawal of troops from Syria as “strategically brilliant,” adding that as far as ISIS is concerned “you have a lot of countries over there that hate ISIS as much as we do…So they can take care of ISIS.”
“We have them captured. The United States captured them,” Trump urged before making the claim about the purposeful release of jihadi fighters.
“Some were released just for effect to make us look a little bit like ‘oh gee, we have to get right back in there.’” The President said, again adding that “you have a lot of countries over there that have power and that hate ISIS very much, as much as we do.”
“If Turkey goes into Syria, that’s between Turkey and Syria,” the President said to reporters in the Oval Office. “It’s not between Turkey and the United States, like a lot of stupid people would like us to — would like you to believe.”
“If Russia wants to get involved with Syria, that’s really up to them,” Trump said. “They have a problem with Turkey. They have a problem at a border. It’s not our border. We shouldn’t be losing lives over it.”
“We’re in a very strategically good position,” Trump declared, deflecting claims of criticism about his decision to withdraw US troops as “fake news”.
“I know the fake news doesn’t make it look that way but we’ve removed all of our soldiers… and they’re now in a very safe location” Trump noted.

And how many of these “Isis fighters” were conscripted Syrian kids told “join us in Jihad or we will rape your sisters and cut off your father’s head with a dull saber”?
Of course the escapes were manufactured.
EVERYTHING over there right now is manufactured.
Why are they still alive?
Seriously, they took arms up against their governments, people and the United States, why are they not 6 feet under?
Don’t capture these cockroaches, shoot them in the head and send them back to Allah
I read somewhere that the Kurds did that a couple of years ago to suck us in. I don’t have any problem believing they would do it again.
They did that anyways
I don’t feel any sorry for ISIS fighters, most of them were from Europe anyways
A bullet to the head would fix this problem
He’s right, the communist, terrorist PKK Kurds let them go.
Why are they still alive?
So the war hawks can keep them in reserve, in hopes of resurrecting their Assad must go campaign.
But the Russians and Syrians will kill them.
Its not between Turkey and the United States, like a lot of stupid people would like us to would like you to believe.
I wonder if one of the stupid people that Trump is talking about has the initials GWB.
Because they were manufactured.
Can’t bomb them while they’re in prison. Now Russia can send them to hell with white phosphorous.
The Willy Peter would solve the problem of having to dig holes.
