The State Department’s top lawyers are systematically removing the word “genocide” to describe the Islamic State’s mass slaughter of Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria from speeches before they are delivered and other official documents, according to human rights activists and attorneys familiar with the policies, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
The lawyers are Obama ideologues.
In addition, Democrats are delaying confirmation of Mark Green to head the U.S. Agency for International Development though he is supported by both parties.
As a result, Obama’s policy of pretending minority religions aren’t being obliterated will continue.
Richard Visek, President Obama’s head the State Department’s Office of Legal Adviser in October 2016, is behind the decision to remove the word “genocide” from official documents.
These ideologues don’t want the word genocide used.
It affects millions of dollars originally earmarked to go to these persecuted religions, including Christians and Yazidis.
They have appealed to President Trump.
Tillerson might be leaving
Tillerson probably has little control over this or doesn’t know, but he might be leaving State anyway.
Rex Tillerson’s leadership over the State Department is being questioned by some on Iran and Israel policy. Some media outlets blame Tillerson for the re-certification of the JPOA [Iran nuclear deal] even though Iran has not met the requirements of the deal.
The Zionist Organization of America has called for Rex Tillerson to resign over what they call a bigoted, anti-Semitic report blaming Israel for Palestinian terror attacks. The ZOA wrote the Israelis were blamed for Palestinian Arab terrorist attacks on innocent Jews and Americans, ignoring and whitewashing the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) “pay to slay” payments to Arabs to murder Jews, among other travesties. They say it contradicts both President Trump’s insightful Riyadh speech, and Ambassador Haley’s outstanding work at the United Nations.
The report was put out this month by the State Department’s counterterrorism official. Trump has asked at least 50 of Obama’s top officials to stay on, one of them is Nicholas Rasmussen who remains at State, in charge of counterterrorism.
Tillerson is considering resigning over a revelation that he violated sanctions when he was the Exxon head and over his distaste for how Trump is handling the Sessions situation. The MSM claims he can’t handle the conflicting viewpoints. There are MSM reports that Tillerson will leave before the end of the year.
There are other reports claiming there is an ongoing battle in the White House between internationalists/globalists and America First proponents.
