FIND OUT WHO LEAKED THIS, AND HAVE HIM OR HER ARRESTED. I am not joking.
Last weekend, the White House announced that the U.S. had dropped 50 tons of ammunition to Syrian Arabs fighting the Islamic State. Some officials now say that the new Arab coalition was a front and that Kurdish groups received most of the weapons — as the U.S. intended.
One senior administration official who works on the issue told us that the White House knew that the coalition was likely to pass on most if not all of the weapons to the Kurds.
You do NOT talk about this! You do not BRAG about this! You do not tell a reporter, you do not tell your mother, you do not tell your priest, you do not tell your spouse, you do not tell YOURSELF! You do not mutter this in your sleep! You just do it, and never ever ever say, breathe, mutter, sub-vocalize, or visualize a word on the matter. Because if you do all of that, then you can do it again.
God save the Republic from tough-guy politicians. And other fools of that ilk.
