Retired General: Trump's Syria Oil Plan Turns US Troops Into "Pirates"

After President Trump suggested on Sunday that he would like to make a deal with Exxon Mobil or “one of our great companies” to go into occupied Syria and take the oil, one of the few former top defense officials to explicitly condemn the plan which clearly smacks of naked US imperialism was retired General Barry McCaffrey.

Referencing Trump's comments, an outraged McCaffrey posed the question on Twitter, "WHAT ARE WE BECOMING... PIRATES?"

He further stressed that the oil "belongs to Syria" and that ultimately "we lack Congressional authority to stay" in the country at all.
