Flynn Was Fired by Obama for Opposing Syrian Intervention
So what's the real reason General Michael Flynn is the subject of the feeding frenzy this month, barring that he may have broken rules which amount to stealing candy in the grand larceny world of Washington? When the media reports that he was fired by Obama it might note his strong disagreement with the idea of intervening in Syria, which as we know is a Neocon priority. That's why Obama fired him. Sy Hersh quotes Former DIA official W. Patrick Lang in the New Yorker:
"Flynn incurred the wrath of the White House by insisting on telling the truth about Syria ... they shoved him out. He wouldn't shut up."
Lang is a former Special Operations colonel who also testified during the Valerie Plame hearings.
We have known overthrowing Assad has been a Neocon priority since Israeli foreign policy strategist Oded Yinon wrote what could be the Neocon Bible, a paper entitled "A Strategy for Israel in the 1980s."
Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel's targets. Its dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria. Iraq is stronger than Syria. In the short run it is Iraqi power which constitutes the greatest threat to Israel.
In 2015 Flynn really talked out of school in an interview on RT (below), when he said that Obama made a "willful" decision to fund and train the same people who would become ISIS. Flynn said he argued against arming the groups.
Then, of course, there is the biggie, the straw that might have broken the camel's back to the Deep State now behind the orchestrated tarring and feathering of Flynn. His Pizzagate tweets.
Now there is a loose cannon. Better make sure no one ever, ever thinks of doing that again.
