Media Cartel Feigns Outrage After Trump Tweets on Cancelling CIA’s Syria Program

PJ Media, by Patrick Poole, July 25, 2017:

In an attempt to lower the bar on fake news, the media cartel merchants last night and earlier today attacked Trump for tweeting about a “classified” CIA Syria rebel support program that has been the worst-kept secret in the Middle East for the past five years:
