On February 20th, 2020 Morgan Ortegus, the Trump Administration appointed spokesperson for the US State Department posted the message (Tweet) shown above. The statement shows clear support for the province of Idlib Syria which is the last section of Syria still besieged by terrorist groups of the FSA (Free Syrian Army) and al-Qaeda. The SAA (Syrian Arab Army) has driven the terrorist groups into the Idlib pocket over the past few years and has been eradicating them within Idlib with the direct military support of the Russian Armed Forces while attempting to limit civilian casualties. The terrorist groups are using civilians as human shields to delay the advance of the SAA into Idlib.

Link to US State Dept. Spox Morgan Ortegus Tweet:


In July 2018, Brett McGurk, the US Special Envoy For The Global Coalition To Counter ISIS spoke at a conference organized by the Middle East Institute. McGurk stated – "Idlib province is the largest Al Qaeda safe haven since 9/11 tied directly to Ayman al-Zawahiri [current leader of Al Qaeda].” He then immediately added that "the Al Qaeda presence in Idlib is a huge problem and has been so for some time.”

Link to McGurk video (Full McGurk statement is much more revealing as to the nature of al-Qaeda in Idlib):

These two statements by these two US representatives acting in their official capacity are in direct contradiction to each other. Someone is clearly not telling the truth.

This post will provide evidence that US Special Envoy Brett McGurk is the person telling the truth to the American people while US State Department Spox Morgan Ortegus is clearly not providing the American people the real story about Idlib and the FSA who are aligned with al-Qaeda in Syria.

A number of posters on Twitter pointed out that American and UK politicians and media pundits appear to be covering up the truth about Al-Qaeda in Idlib Syria. Screenshots of those posts and responses to Morgan Ortegus tweet are posted below for posterity in this new era of disinformation, mass propaganda saturation and online/social media censorship.

2nd Tweet is from February 25, 2020 and shows that Brett McGurk believes Donald Trump to be misleading the American people about Syria.


Seven years ago in summer 2013, the Guardian UK reported that the western, Israeli and Gulf State backed FSA (Free Syrian Army) was comprised of al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria). Since that time western governments and Zionist controlled media outlets have continued to support the FSA with no mention of its al-Qaeda links. In almost all western and Gulf State media the fact that the FSA is filled with Islamic extremists is completely left out of their 'official' narratives in relation to Syria.

Now, lets take a look at the scripted professional wrestling style performance and outright farce taking place in realtime today as Lindsey Graham puts on his act of thanking Donald Trump for killing the terrorists while Donald Trump leans back and smiles knowing full well that its just a show they are selling to the crowd who unwittingly cheer, not realizing they are being played as fools in this elaborate charade.

Of course the dems are just another side of the same coin as the American people are constantly divided and conquered by this sadistic cabal. Frankly, its quite sad to watch.

In the full length video of Trump speech tonight in Charleston one can hear Trump state multiple untruths about the US mission in Syria at the 2: 25:45 mark as Trump states " we've destroyed the ISIS territorial caliphate" (this was actually performed by Russia and the Syrian Arab Army. The US was using them as a proxy for intervention into Syria). Trump then states " We killed the founder and leader of ISIS, al-Baghdadi is dead, he's dead". ( For those not in the know, he had been reported dead on five different occasions). Trump then states " and we recently took out the world top terrorist Kasam Solemeni, ending his evil reign of terror forever" ( The Iranian General actually played a lead role in aiding Syria and Russia with destroying ISIS and al-Qaeda in Syria). Trump plays his role to the hilt and once again its quite sad to watch all the people who are duped into believing what he is stating is reality. This video clearly shows the power of propaganda in the modern day.

Its well past time for people to wake up to the reality of what is really happening in Syria and how politicians and the mainstream media are lying straight-faced and playing roles while steering the public with this deception, for the same fate that has befallen the Syrian people could easily befall those that are being taken advantage of with this propaganda and outright deception. The warmongers obviously do not care who they hurt in the attempted achievement of their nefarious geopolitical goals. They will do what they can to save their own skin and keep the people blinded as to what is really going on. What is seen in those crowds by the sociopaths who foment war is willfully blinded sheep, cattle to be herded, for to deceive with such a straight face is truly evil in its very nature. This is the real state of the nation we are really dealing with. This is America in 2020. Its important to understand that the global elite and their puppets play all sides. They do not really care about the American people. They care about themselves and keeping the system that has enriched them propped up and legitimized, and they will use deception, propaganda and, if necessary, force to control it all.

The US goals in Idlib are not about saving people. They are about using people to achieve a result. Brett McGurk told the truth about Idlib and al-Qaeda. The Trump administration, US politicians and the democrat party frontrunners have been intentionally covering up these unpleasant truths. Its time for the American people to realize this. You too are a victim of these soulless warmongering creatures. You are being played.
