The Trump Administration is pondering the appointment of Elliot Abrams to the powerful position of Deputy Secretary of State.
If you do not know who Elliot Abrams is, consider this. Dr. Ron Paul & his son Senator Rand Paul, along with the editors of Antiwar have blitzed social media warning against letting this guy quietly be confirmed.
From the Antiwar.com artitle on Abrams:
Abrams stands for everything the President said he opposes: regime change, globalism, hostility to Russia, endless wars on behalf of ungrateful “allies.”…..In addition, Abrams was indicted and convicted in the infamous “Contra-gate” scandal of the 1980s, when he collaborated in a plot to cover up paying ransom to Iran for the hostages they had taken.
Although he was pardoned by George HW Bush, this hardly alters his criminal status – and that’s the least of his crimes. During that same period he was instrumental in supporting not only the Nicaraguan contras, but also the terrorist “death squads” that wreaked devastation on El Salvador – a horrific phenomenon that led directly to the chaos that has turned that country into a killing field ruled by criminals.
