If you're surprised by this, you believe in Santa Claus.
...In a rare display, McConnell publicly challenged the Trump administration's intent to reportedly remove troops from Afghanistan and Iraq - dwindling numbers to just 2,500 in each country.
'The consequences of a premature American exit would likely be even worse than President Obama's withdrawal from Iraq back in 2011, which fueled the rise of ISIS and a new round of global terrorism,' McConnell argued from the Senate floor....
Oh, really? Obama was (and remains) an ally of radical Muslims. Are you saying that Trump has that problem?
Here's where McConnell lies like Hell:
'We’re playing a limited but important role in defending American national security and American interests against terrorists who would like nothing more than for the most powerful force for good in the world to simply pick up our ball and go home. They would love that.'Which "interests," Turtle?
The Empire wants continuous war, win or lose. The Empire feeds on the blood of Mideast and Afghani citizens--not to mention US troops.
McConnell has been given his instructions.
