    General Mike Flynn’s inexplicable decision to plead guilty to lying to the FBI was disappointing to his many supporters in conservative national security circles.

    However, in one respect it was understandable; Flynn was being crushed by the legal bills required to defend himself against the relentless pursuit of Robert Mueller and his unlimited manpower and budget.

    Compared to the modest resources Flynn could muster from his military pension and his brief career as a consultant it was a steamroller vs a mongoose – and no matter how feisty the mongoose he would eventually be crushed.

    Pleading guilty to a questionable charge was the only way for General Flynn to get his life back.

    General Flynn was arguably the chief architect of the Trump administration’s national security strategy and, having been with Donald Trump since early in the primaries, was one of the chief influencers of President Trump’s view of how to deal with the many threats facing our country.

    That and the fact that he was not afraid to tell the truth about Obama’s national security failures put a target on his back early on.

    “We are tired of Obama’s empty speeches and his misguided rhetoric. This has caused the world to have no respect for America’s word, nor does it fear our might,” Flynn said in his fiery speech to the Republican National Convention in July.

    Conservatives might fairly ask how someone so close to the President was brought down and were Flynn’s conversations with the Russians illegal or a national security threat?

    To answer the last questions first, as explained in our article “Democrats And Establishment Republicans Try To Torpedo Gen. Mike Flynn” the answers are no and no.

    Most laymen will not know that one of the constants in U.S. military affairs since the fall of the Soviet Union has been a military-to-military relationship with Russia.

    After 1991 the US spent billions of dollars through programs, such as the Department of Defense Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) Program, also known as the Nunn-Lugar Program, to help Russia secure its nuclear weapons complex, including a highly secret joint operation to remove weapons-grade uranium from unsecured storage depots in Kazakhstan.

    During the post-9/11 war in Afghanistan, Russia provided overflight rights for US cargo carriers and tankers, as well as access for the flow of weapons, ammunition, food and water to the US military. Russia’s military also provided intelligence on the Islamist sympathies of the Boston Marathon bombers, helped the US negotiate rights to use an airbase in Kyrgyzstan and allegedly provided intelligence on Osama bin Laden’s whereabouts.

    Cooperation and communications with the Russians only became a problem when it came into conflict with Obama’s feckless decision to oust President Bashar al Assad of Syria.

    So how was General Flynn undermined so thoroughly that he lost the President’s confidence, resigned and eventually was forced to plead guilty to lying to the FBI?

    First, it is important to understand that the deep state is especially concentrated in the intelligence and security apparatus of the federal government.

    General Flynn was at the center of the Obama deep state; he was Deputy to James Clapper, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence and he headed the Defense Intelligence Agency, the military's competitor to the CIA and NSA.

    However, General Flynn didn’t buy the Obama approach to the threat of militant Islam and especially the disaster in Syria. As journalist Seymour M. Hersh wrote for the January 7, 2016 issue of The London Review of Books:

    Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, director of the DIA between 2012 and 2014, confirmed that his agency had sent a constant stream of classified warnings to the civilian leadership about the dire consequences of toppling Assad. The jihadists, he said, were in control of the opposition. Turkey wasn’t doing enough to stop the smuggling of foreign fighters and weapons across the border. “If the American public saw the intelligence we were producing daily, at the most sensitive level, they would go ballistic…”

    Hersh claims the alarm about the danger of Obama’s policies in Syria became so great that in the autumn of 2013 that high levels of the American military decided to take steps against the extremists without going through political channels, by providing US intelligence to the militaries of other nations, on the understanding that it would be passed on to the Syrian army and used against the common enemy, Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State.

    I was watching FNC last night and it was mentioned that the Trump hating FBI Sack of Manure, Strzop, did not inform the General he was being investigated before he questioned him. is it legal to even charge him on the Trash Charge of lying to an Agent when he is not aware he is the target of the investigation?

    I really wish he hadn't done that. All this is going to do is inspire those actors behind this witch hunt to go harder now.
    May God be with General Flynn and his family during this difficult time.

    Even on the outside, it is a hard thing to refute when a platoon of Russian Infantry pass you in the entryway of my local Wally World, obviously training because they were dressed in full battle gear qnd dusty... woooo-boy they needed a bath.
