"Mission Accomplished!" President Trump said of the Syria attack, using words another president came to regret. But what exactly are his goals?

On the morning after, President Trump declared that the surgical strike in Syria had been executed perfectly. “Mission Accomplished!” he wrote on Twitter.

But aside from the curious choice of words, it raised the essential question regarding Syria going beyond the one-time strike: What exactly is the mission?

Trump pardons Scooter Libby—the guy who leaked name of covert CIA agent, then lied to FBI about it

Donald Trump has reached back to George W. Bush-era contempt for the rule of law and pardoned Scooter Libby, who leaked Valerie Plame’s name and CIA affiliation in an attempt to discredit Ambassador Joe Wilson’s evidence undercutting the made-up reasons for waging war on Iraq. In short, Trump has found a way to go on the record supporting personal attacks on public servants in retaliation for truth-telling. According to a statement from the White House:

Today, President Donald J. Trump issued an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) to I. “Scooter” Lewis Libby, former Chief of Staff to Vice President Richard Cheney, for convictions stemming from a 2007 trial. President George W. Bush commuted Mr. Libby’s sentence shortly after his conviction.  Mr. Libby, nevertheless, paid a $250,000 fine, performed 400 hours of community service, and served two years of probation. […]

“I don’t know Mr. Libby,” said President Trump, “but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly.  Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life.”

Bull crap. Donald Trump is making a statement about presidential pardon power and his willingness to use it in defense of executive branch misdeeds—or in defense of the misdeeds of his former campaign advisers and staffers. He’s telling his associates who are currently under special counsel Robert Mueller’s microscope that he’s got their backs if they’ve got his.

Pentagon briefs the nation on details of Syria attack


Meteor Blades Daily Kos Staff2018/04/13 · 19:00


In a brief statement Friday night, Pr*sident Trump announced that the United States, along with Britain and France, were striking Syrian targets in response to a poison gas attack a week ago that took the lives of more than 40 people in Douma, an eastern suburb of Damascus. That attack has been attributed to the government of Bashar al-Assad by the three allies and other sources. The New York Times reports that Trump indicated an openendedness to the latest strikes unlike the one-off strike with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles on an air base a year ago:

“We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents,” Mr. Trump said.

Russia, which has militarily supported al-Assad in the multi-sided 7-year-old civil war that has killed perhaps half a million Syrians, not only denied that Syria launched a chemical attack, but said without evidence Friday that Britain had staged it. It was unclear whether the Kremlin was saying Britain had engineered a chemical attack or that there was no chemical attack, just Britain’s claim of one.

Shortly afterward Trump began speaking, the Associated Press and other media reported that loud explosions had been heard in Damascus where the local time was 4 AM.

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis is saying the U.S. has struck Syria’s chemical weapons infrastructure.
