    While this is a good thing, the freeze also halts demining, rebuilding and other humanitarian efforts.

    White Helmets...what a fantastic propaganda stunt that was. Didn't a movie about those savages get nominated for an Academy Award? The State Department must have been 'compelled' by some very serious evidence...lol!

    Phrump has approved the continuation of financial support for the al-Qaeda Helmets. Background is probably the desire to keep an organization that can stage "chemical attacks" and deliver propaganda material to justify further US aggressions against Syria. When all praise "peace dove" Trump, they should not stay uninformed about his involvement in abhorrent, inhuman terrorism and war.
