Jared Kushner Flies To Iraq With Joint Chiefs For ISIS Strategy Briefing

Tyler Durden's picture

President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner reportedly arrived in Baghdad this morning, in a surprise visit with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford, to meet U.S. and Iraqi officials and to receive military briefings on the fight against the Islamic State.  Kushner is the first member of Trump’s inner circle to visit the country, currently engaged in a fight to drive the militant group from Mosul and other areas.

The visit comes at a critical time, as the Department of Defense crafts the new administration's strategy to combat the Islamic State in Iraq, Syria and beyond.

As the Wall Street Journal points out, Kushner is a relative newcomer to foreign policy but has been given broad authority over a number of sensitive issues including the brokering of a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians.  “If you can’t produce peace in the Middle East, nobody can,” Trump told Kushner at a gala a few days before his inauguration.

Mr. Kushner, 36, a newcomer to foreign policy issues, has taken an active role as an adviser to Mr. Trump on national security and foreign policy. Last month, Mr. Kushner made, for a White House official, a rare appearance at the Pentagon, where he met Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince and Minister of Defense Mohammed bin Salman during his meeting with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.


He has also been influential with his father-in-law on issues pertaining to Mexico and other countries, and he has been given broad authority by his father-in-law to broker a peace deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians.


Mr. Kushner, a multimilliionaire businessman and developer interested in how technology can reform organizations, launched an innovation office for the White House last week that intends to help reform government.



Kushner’s Iraq trip marks an early foray for the Trump administration into the situation in Iraq and comes just two weeks after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said he was assured by the president the U.S. will accelerate its support for his country’s struggle against the Islamic State group.

Al-Abadi met with Trump and Kushner in Washington last month and said he had the impression that the Trump administration would take a more aggressive approach in combatting ISIS than the Obama administration did.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis recently presented the president with the outlines of a comprehensive approach to defeating IS and other extremist groups on a global scale, but specifics have yet to be released.  That said, the new strategy, or a refinement of it, may include additional U.S. troops for both Iraq and Syria, possible changes that could put American soldiers closer to the front lines, and an accelerated airstrike campaign.

“I think anyone who’s involved in the discussion on where we go strategically—having good situational awareness about what’s happening tactically and hear it first hand and unfiltered, how our advisers assess the Iraqi security forces, both the opportunities and the challenges—will feed into somebody’s strategic view,” Gen. Dunford told the small group of reporters traveling with him on a military jet.

As we noted last week, Kushner was also the latest Trump associate to be swept up in the ongoing media crusade to link the Trump administration to Russian spies. The White House confirmed last week that he had volunteered to be interviewed by the Senate intelligence committee. North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, the committee’s chairman, said that Kushner would likely be under oath and would submit to a “private interview” about arranging meetings with the Russian ambassador and other officials.

We expect confirmation from CNN at any moment on whether there are any senior Russian officials currently in Iraq, anywhere in Kushner's general vicinity.

It would be nice if Kushner would enlist and represent America on the front. Pick up a weapon and really do something worthwhile in the fight against terrorism. He's still young enough, right? I mean the guy is barely potty trained. Of course for people like Trump et al it's easier to send somebody elses child to do the fighting.

Edit: Better yet, convince your father in law and others to not get involved in foreign entanglements and stop funding the war machine that profits from death and destruction.

TRUMP IS THE NWO CANDIDATE, what will it take for the morons to accept this fact? 


People like you will pay for the ammo they use in your firing squad. 


Obama was a tool of the Zionist NWO, while his idiot flock thought he was a gift for liberals, not because he was liberal, but because the Zionist media told them so. 

Today we have the same lying Zionist media says they hate Trump because he is "too pro-America". That is a lie, a cover story to make idiots on the right believe Trump is one of them. Trump is owned, period.

It is a fact that Trump owed some 70 New York City Jewish banks, $4 Billion Dollars, yet they made him whole, what did he give them in return.


The Zionist Jewish NWO can make anyone President, they certainly fooled us all with Obama. 


Trump is a tool, and he shows it everyday, we just have to be brave/honest enough to admit it.

(((Jamie Gorelick))) is Jared Kushner's attorney.

This is just a bit of the details from this American Thinker article:

In 1993, as deputy attorney general under President Clinton, Gorelick served as “field commander” for the horrific government assault on a religious community in Waco, Texas, that left more than eighty dead, twenty of them children.

In 1995, she went on to pen the infamous "wall" memo that prevented the FBI and CIA from sharing information in the run-up to September 11. At the time, a dismayed FBI investigator wrote a memo to headquarters which included the sentence, “Someday someone will die -- and wall or not -- the public will not understand why we were not more effective."

In 1996, Gorelick stepped up her game, taking a lead role in the investigation of the TWA Flight 800 disaster. This was the 747 that inexplicably blew up off the coast of Long Island in July 1996 killing 230 people.

As deputy attorney general serving under a feckless Janet Reno, Gorelick's assignment was to rein in the FBI. Five weeks into the investigation, she summoned FBI honcho Jim Kallstrom to Washington and served up a dose of political reality. To be sure, no account of the Aug. 22 meeting provides any more than routine detail, but behaviors began to change immediately afterwards.

The FBI had already leaked to the New York Times information that would result in a headline on Aug. 23, top right: "Prime Evidence Found That Device Exploded in Cabin of Flight 800." This article stole the thunder from Clinton's election-driven approval of welfare reform in that same day's paper and threatened to undermine the peace and prosperity message of the next week's Democratic National Convention.

What followed in the next several weeks was the most ambitious and successful cover-up in American peacetime history. At its center was Gorelick. With the help of a complicit media and the active involvement of the CIA, she and her cronies transformed a transparent missile strike into a mechanical failure of unknown origin.

If you feel like digging more, further yet down another rabbit hole, ask your fave search engine for "gorelick wall memo"...you'll see just how deeply-connected she was with the administration and the directions it travelled.

I tend to think that if someone has had access to that much power, they will seek it out again.

The Zionist lie machine loves to play Americans for fools. Hollywood, MSM owners/managers, wall street, J-street, AIPAC, ADL...are all members of the tribe, and they played the contrived narrative that they hated Trump, knowing it would endear Trump to the right. 


But time and time again Trump has shown his loyalty to the Tribe, NOT the American people. 


THE MEDIA & ESTABLISHMENT LIE, so why do you fall for this lie, when you know they do nothing but lie and manipulate US?


This is just cover for fat ass, so he can distract US with the idiotic overt war with the media, while he does Israel's bidding.

I don't like the jew Kushner. He is pure, uber zionist. He is unaccountable to the people and out of reach of CONgress, yet there he goes, flying around with the refreshed all for the jews MIC warmongers to pave the way for the next war for israhell.

There are many ppl here who bellyache about uncomplimentary references in re jews. As I have noted, whenever they crawl out from under whatever rock they were hiding under, I can't find one that has not been a totally un-American, disloyal, conspiratorial waste of space, promoting and advocating and executing all manner of destructive policies and acts that are jew first, foremost and only. 100%. As I have said before, I can't speak to the jew I have not seen, only what I do see.

I can only go off my research, and what I believe to be reliable, credible sources. The following is only the tip of the iceberg from a mountain of growing evidence to conclusively support the initiative to shut jews completely out from banking, government, media, courts and education.

The constitutional basis is this:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion".

If you want to stop having a screwed up world, shut the jew out, and force the islams back into their cage in the ME. Additionally, for those that are left behind, we have a duty not to be immoral dogs, but to be credible, honest people of integrity. If we want to enjoy freedom, we need to be self governed, so there will be little need for the police state to govern us.

Well documented.


Israeli/Zionist/Jewish control over America, its governemnt, its society, it absolute. The fact that the proof is everywhere, yet we constantly see people totally denying this fact.


Zionist Jews hate Christians just as much as they hate Muslims, and they ARE destroying America. They are the ones pushing for open borders, They use the media, Hollywood, politics to push the leis about immigration. They do the same in Europe. 


Trump owed some 70 New York City Jewish banks, 44 billion dollars, they made him whole, and what do you think the price for their "generosity" was?


The election was rigged as Trump said, but it was rigged for him, Clinton was just a stand in, she got a "get out of jail free card" out of the deal. Clinton was in the election for one purpose, DIVIDE the American people. That IS was US elections are about establishing the right V left narrative for the next Zionist puppet. 

Friedrich not Salma's picture

Not disagreeing with your points but the election was too close to call for it to be rigged in favor of one or the other. It was a win-win for most of our controllers no matter who won.
I also like Catherine Austin Fitts POV that there are competing groups of controllers fighting it out at the top.

They have used their media to demonize David Duke, but if you can look past the Zionist Jewish propaganda, and just listen to the man, he is incredibly knowledgeable, and you can tell he cares about America, which is far more than I can say about most Zionists.

Here is a video from the recent AIPAC convention.


The Zionists attacked American protesters at the AIPAC conference. You will note a similar covered faced hooligans who attacked the American protesters. The real evil behind most of the west's unrest can always be traced to the Zionist Jews, their money and their anti civility tactics. Now we have one in the White House. 

Northern Flicker's picture

A night in Abu Ghraib Prison, testing out the "Israeli chair," could give Kushner some really valuable insights.  In fact, all the tough guys - Rubio, Cruz, and Trump - could gain some knowlege of why ISIS might exist. They may even want to incorporate "the chair" into American Law.  Forget the Red Cross stated that 70% to 90% of prisoners were totally innocent, it is important to teach the population respect for higher authority, even if they can't walk afterwords.  As for the "Torture Report," it was never released, so perhaps the JWO Plan is to bring it to the US anyway - sort of an import, rather than export - of American values.  (I back Trump, but I think his position on "torture" [now euphemistically called ""enhanced interrogation"] is one of the stupider things he has said. I'd like to see a sincere retraction.)

Northern Flicker's picture

Eric Fair, former contracted US interrogator at Abu Ghraib, on the consequences of the torture there:

"I don’t think that story is written yet.. I think it should be frightening...  the names that you can start ticking off in terms of people that spent time in oppressive prison environments and then came on to be just monsters in history is a long list. We are 10—12 years removed from Abu Ghraib. We are zero years removed from Guantánamo Bay. There remain detention facilities in places like Afghanistan and probably Iraq. I don’t know what those consequences are. Some of them at this point are unavoidable. But I do feel that if we address this issue, and that we do have a significant change and we do go back to essentially those core values that we absolutely will treat prisoners of war humanely, and that we broadcast that, that we can shift the narrative."

The Big Picture

Trump said that he knows more about ISIS than the generals. Indeed he does, and that's why he is targeting Iran and the countries which Iran controls: Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, and Somalia. The Syrian and the Sudanese governments are currently meeting with the CIA to coordinate the combat against Iranian militias and terror cells in Sudan and Syria. Iraq is trickier, the Iraqi government is filled with Iranian agents.

Obama, Hillary and other corrupt Western leaders embraced and imported Iranian terror cells. The Muslim Brotherhood is an Iranian project (Iran / Muslim Brotherhood ties (with pics)) and Obama and Hillary have allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to completely infiltrate the US. Huma Abedin played a role in that.

Iran is Shiite and ISIS are Sunni, but it doesn't matter. Christian Zionists are Christian churches that have been created by Jews. Same principle. Christian Zionists are the Shiites of Christianity, and Shiites are the Zionists of Islam.

Trump promised that he will quickly defeat ISIS. This includes defeating Iranian terrorism and expansionism and containing Iran. This will happen, God willing.

However, the battle with Iran will be attended by Jesus Christ, sometime in the near future. The Antichrist, the king of the false Jews, resides in Iran.

Kazem Alonezan, leader of the clans council of Southern Iraq said this: "I went to a hospital in Tehran (Iran) to visit a wounded relative of mine from Badr (pro-Iranian Iraqi shiite militia fighting against ISIS in Iraq). I entered the wrong hospital floor, and I was shocked to see an ISIS man in every bed! How dare they treat ISIS and our soldiers who are fighting them in the same hospital?"

ISIS is Iranian militia

These patients are not prisoners. The article lists many proofs that Iran runs ISIS. Iranian militias in Mosul share the same Iraqi territories with ISIS. ISIS are Iranian militias. Iran is Rothschild's last war toy.

For a long time, the FBI has warned that Iranian terror cells are all over Europe and the US, waiting for orders. Recently on ZH, an Iranian terrorist outed herself, praising Hezbollah and cursing Americans.

To explain the conflicts in Persian culture, a British diplomat wrote a famous novel:


"HAJJI BABA OF ISPAHAN, hero of The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan by James Justinian Morier (3 vols., London, 1824), the most popular Oriental novel in the English language and a highly influential stereotype of the so-called “Persian national character” in modern times. Morier (1782-1849), a former diplomat who had resided in Persia for nearly six years (1808-1809 and 1810-1814) at a critical juncture during diplomatic entanglements with European powers, fashioned his novel on his personal observations and direct knowledge about Persia, but with a decidedly hostile and satirical overtone. An Orientalist project parexcellence, Hajji Baba lampoons Persians as rascals, cowards, puerile villains, and downright fools, depicting their culture as scandalously dishonest and decadent, and their society as violent."
