While official Washington is preoccupied with a special counsel’s selective pursuit of allegations of collusion with Russia, the far-reaching consequences of what amounts to ongoing U.S. collusion with Iran are going unaddressed.
In his single-minded pursuit of the destruction of the Islamic State, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster has effectively aligned us with the mullahs in Tehran. American troops on the ground have wound up enabling the advance of Shiite Iraqi units dominated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps; our warplanes have amounted to their air force.
McMaster has belatedly expressed unhappiness that Iran and its proxies have turned on America’s allies in Kurdish areas of Iraq. By failing to anticipate that outcome, to say nothing of equipping the Kurds to prevent it, he has helped Iran consolidate its position throughout the region — with extremely ominous implications for people there and here.
