One conspiracy theory.

The killing of al Baghdadi was a Russian/Turkish/Trump operation.

This was part of the deal Trump made with Erdogan when he withdrew the troops and betrayed the Kurds.

Both Erdogan and Putin wanted al Baghdadi dead. He was a threat to their future plans of dividing up the spoils of Syria between them.

They were willing to let Trump be the "hero" that killed Baghdadi if they could get their way in Syria.

That is why American troops were permitted to fly over both Russian and Turkish positions to get to the Baghdadi compound.

Trump needed a diversion and an issue to help him with his next election. So he made the deal.

That is why he was so complimentary of Russia and Turkey in his detailed account of the killing.

That is why he did not tell Pelosi or Schiff.

It was all a part of a deal Trump made with Turkey and Russia to help him domestically and divert the attention away from a very damaging impeachment process.

1. You may be onto something. Considering this "win" is already falling apart, I would say

It won't be as successful as they thought.

5. Also, I don't think it happened last night.

In the coverage they have shown over the news of the demolished compound, there are areas where it looks as if bulldozers had moved the debris into different piles, in order to clear it up a little. But there are no bulldozers in sight? If it happened last night, that seemed a little strange to me?

6. You are so right. I was just about to post it was a set-up so Lindsey could stand up and say,

"You can't impeach the man who just saved America."

7. Believable.

With the truth threatening him daily he needed a big headline changer. That's what Republicans do.

I remember when I thought Cheney was just trying to change the headlines when he came up with the scary WMD fabrications at the time of the damaging Coleen Rowley testimony. Unfortunately, once they put it out there they couldn't dismiss it.
