As we reported on over a year ago, US Strategy for the middle east is a permanent ongoing deployment for the purpose of area wide destabilization, and the development of an expanded israeli state (covering over 700% more area than it currently is in occupation of).
Tillerson was impeding that strategy, by doing what was in the best interest of the united states against the interests and state goals of the israeli apartheid nation. Simply by condensing good deals for the area and US, was more than enough to have him removed from office. Not only was Tillerson refusing to play along on going to war with iran, he was additionally pushing peace between south and north korea. A move geopolitical puppet masters have no intention on allowing to continue.
It was initially believed that Tillerson first learned that he was being canned from Trump’s tweet and that’s essentially true. According to the Post’s reporting, Tillerson was on a diplomatic trip to Africa when he was woken up by a call in the middle of the night by Chief of Staff John Kelly urging him to cut his travels short and come back to D.C. as soon as possible. Apparently, Trump was planning to announce Tillerson’s dismissal was the Secretary of State was abroad in an official capacity, but Kelly talked the president out of it, urging him to wait until the nation’s top diplomat is back on American soil before dropping the axe. Tillerson left Africa on Monday.
Steve Goldstein, undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs, said that Tillerson was “unaware of the reason” for his firing and had not spoken directly with Trump. He said Kelly told Tillerson in the call only that “he could expect a tweet” from the president, but it was not conveyed that the decision to fire him was final.
“He found out that he was terminated today,” Goldstein said.
Goldstein was fired shortly after making that statement, which contradicted the White House’s official story on Tillerson’s exit. According to the White House, the president asked Tillerson to resign on Friday before Kelly told him he would be replaced on an unspecified date. The New York Times reported that Tillerson didn’t definitively know he had been fired until an aide showed him Trump’s tweet this morning.
During his farewell address, Tillerson confirmed reports that he didn’t receive a call from Trump until around noon — more than three hours after news broke that he had been replaced. Before walking off without taking questions, Tillerson made sure to thank everyone he worked with for their service, except, notably, Trump himself.
“Rex and I have been talking about this a long time,” the president said this morning when reporters asked him how Tillerson learned of his ouster. “I actually got along well with Rex, but really it was a different mind-set, a different thinking.”
Trump chalked Tillerson’s exit up to differences in policy towards Iran and North Korea and dodged questions about the time the now former secretary of state reportedly called Trump “a moron.”
