Well Trump was right, the President broadcasted his move on Mosul and the Media obliged to help Isis prepare to flee and fight. Many of them fled to Syria already while the ones who stayed as fighters are holding off the Iraqi elites.
How incompetent do you have to be to broadcast your every move?

If the preparations could have been kept secret, perhaps they would have. The military never gives up plans to the public unless the enemy already knows them. Trump has a lot to learn from his generals.

IT'S also possible they want them to flee in order to retake the city without a lot of casualties, thus make themselves look sucessful. After all it's all about image.

Agreed. Ever since 'Arab Spring' blew up in Obama's face his number one priority with the Middle East is appearances. When politics drive your military decisions, you are destined to fail.

No not whatever, there's a huge factor you don't know about.
The Clintons knew about the Baath party Sunni's ambitions to permeate Europe for decades, they knew their threat all along which is why she agreed to the war. Not only did they know their intent, but when that Party threat resurrected as Isis they played dumb and put Europe and us in harms way for sole political purposes.
