[I24 International News] July 19th: Jack Talks U.S. Ending CIA Covert Ops in Syria
I appear on I24 International News at 9:15 p.m. e.s.t. The Trump Administration stated that they intend to end CIA operations in Syrian to help train and arm Rebels against the Damascus regime. This cuts against the Obama Administration and is consistent with what the Russians have been trying to do the entire time. The Russians have continued to support and arm President Assad against those same rebels. President Trump claims that the focus needs to be on ISIS and not Assad.
I appear appear on I24 International to discuss the ramifications of such a move. The U.S. has long standing problems in the region and to decision cuts against the chemical weapons attacks conducted by the Assad regime against civilians. Where will this go next? A lot of questions.
This should be interesting.
