On CNN Saturday, journalist Barbara Starr reported that the head of the Syrian Democratic Forces is accusing the United States of abandoning them — and is threatening to leave the alliance with the U.S. for Russia.
“On Thursday, there was a meeting between the military leader of the Syrian Democratic forces and a top state Department official,” said Starr. “I just want to read you direct quotes. They are stunning, from an internal administration document that summarized the meeting.”
“So first the general says to the State Department official, you have given up on us. You are leaving us to be slaughtered,” said Starr. “You have nothing for us. You are not willing to protect the people, but you do not want another force to come and protect us. You have sold us. This is immoral. The general goes on, he is furious. He says, and I quote further, I need to know if you are capable of protecting my people, of stopping these bombs falling on us or not. I need to know because if you are not, I need to make a deal with Russia and the regime now and invite their planes to protect this region.”

As the battle over replacing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — who died Friday from complications of pancreatic cancer — takes shape in Washington, D.C., Republican senators who previously refused to hold a vote on former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court pick are now having their words thrown in their faces.
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on Saturday played a devastating supercut that features Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) explaining why they would not vote on Obama’s nominee to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.
‘How is that not a failure?’: Trump health official called out by CNN’s Tapper over COVID-19 debacle
Admiral Brett Giroir was put on the spot on Sunday morning by CNN host Jake Tapper over the failure of the White House to still take the coronavirus pandemic seriously, and then ended up receiving a dressing down from the "State of the Union" host.
Noting the lack of masks at recent Trump rallies and the growing death toll of COVID-19 victims, Tapper exclaimed, “How is this not a failure, and how is President Trump leading us out of it in the right way, according to your own words?”
Girior attempted to explain that “people are empowered to know that they can slow the spread and change the course, they can save lives by doing the things we talk about, wearing a mask.”
