Iraqi Prime Minister AbdulMahdi accuses Trump of deceiving him in order to assassinate Suleimani. Trump, according to P.M. lied about wanting a diplomatic solution in order to get Suleimani on a plane to Baghdad in the open, where he was summarily executed.

This could well be due to institutional confusion & rapid cascade of events. DOD could well have asked Iraq for a de-escalation after the bombing of 5 militia outposts, causing rush to diplomacy. Then embassy was attacked & Trump was offered options for retaliation??? Guessing

Tricking AbdulMahdi to make him complicit in killing of Suleimani & al-Muhandis was a low trick. Practically guaranteed he'd ask Parliament to end alliance w/ US. If true, it's a shocking allegation, but ultimately self-defeating, it's undermined entire US position in Syria/Iraq.

Huh. Sounds like how we ended our war in the Phillipines in the very early 1900s. An American tradition I guess.
