The foreign policy deck has been cleared of Islam realists. And it shows.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday that Sebastian Gorka was “completely wrong” in his resignation letter’s assessment of the battle over Trump administration policy.

“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace asked Tillerson about Gorka’s accusations, especially regarding the president’s recent speech on Afghanistan.

“Sebastian Gorka in his resignation letter wrote this about the Afghanistan speech: ‘the fact that those who drafted and approved the speech remove any mention of radical Islam or radical Islamic terrorism proves that a crucial element of the presidential campaign has been lost.’ Is he right?” Wallace asked.

“I think he’s completely wrong, Chris,” Tillerson said. “And I think it shows a lack of understanding of the president’s broader policy when it comes to protecting Americans at home and abroad from all acts of terrorism. The president has charged us to develop policies and tactics, both diplomatically and militarily, to attack terrorism in as many forms wherever it exists in the world and wherever it might present a threat to the homeland or to Americans anywhere.”

“This means that we have to develop techniques that are global in nature. All we want is to ensure that terrorists do not have the capability to organize and carry out attacks,” he added.

Are there any non-Islamic global terrorist threats? What are we fighting in Afghanistan except Islamic terrorism?

Are we at war with Mormons or the Amish in Afghanistan? Who are the Taliban again? Or the Haqqani Network? Or the Islamic State?

Best not to ask. See nothing. Hear nothing. Say nothing. It’s worked brilliantly since 9/11. I can imagine how different things might have been under Secretary of State Bolton. But as Whittier said, “For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, ‘It might have been’.”

Or as Obama put it, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”.

Meanwhile it’s interesting how selective Tillerson is when claiming to speak for Trump.

    W.A.S.S. (We Are So Screwed)!

    I try to be optimistic, I try to find a reason to truly believe that those whose hands pull the levers of power know how to, and intend to, lead us to victory over those who openly state their intention to conquer us.

    I don’t see any reason to believe that a win-win compromise, with the Arab/Islamic world is possible. this is a, “zero sum game”.

    I try to be optimistic, but I see no legitimate reason to conclude, definitively, that there is very much sound reason for which to sustain optimism.

      I assume that the BHO gang threatened to Murder President Trump if he refuses to listen
      to them.
      Thats why President Trump and his Team are about to be destroyed / Whiped out…
      I think that pretty soon BHO takes the WH illegally for the 2nd time…
      I have no more hope for the US – Jews should
      better leave for Israel before its too late..
