H.R. McMaster, President Trump's national security advisor, is working behind the scenes to send tens of thousands of ground troops into Syria to take out the government of Bashar al-Assad. On the edition of The Geopolitical Report, we look at how Barack Obama set the stage for an escalation of U.S. intervention in a “civil war” engineered by the CIA and the Gulf Emirates. We also take a look at McMaster's record in Iraq where he mistreated detainees and his association with the convicted criminal and former CIA director David Petraeus. H.R. McMaster is Donald Trump's Master of War.
