The Pentagon keeps secret information about who specifically helps American special forces in Syria

63
The division of the American special forces helps the "local forces acting against Daesh", but to whom it is - official secrets, reports RIA News Pentagon spokesman Michel Baldans.




“As we announced in October, the president and the defense secretary instructed the US special forces to coordinate on-site in Syria with local forces against the IS. We will not provide details of the operation, location, time, or other specific information so that the special forces have the greatest opportunity to succeed in their mission. ”- said Baldansa.

On Monday, Barack Obama announced that the special forces had already embarked on a mission. “The special forces, which I ordered to move to Syria, began to support local forces, which are advancing to the south, cutting off supply lines and increasing pressure on Al-Raqqa,” said the president, speaking to the military at the Pentagon.

Earlier, the Pentagon sent 50 special forces to Syria. "Their number will grow," the military later clarified.

        Who do they help .... funny:

        We draw conclusions:

        This is really embarrassing for the US and Turkey. A plumber from Texas "burned down" those who supply the IS pickups. According to TASS: A plumber from Texas, Mark Oberholtzer, requires compensation of $ 1 million from a car dealership that sold his old pickup truck along with the advertising registration data of his family company.

        This car, as it turned out, was then resold to Turkey, and from there it got to the militants of the Islamic State terrorist group (IS, banned in Russia) operating in Syria.

        Those turned it into a fighting vehicle, installing an anti-aircraft gun in the back of a pickup truck.

        As a result, a car with the name and phone numbers of the Oberholtzer company on the cab doors appeared in December 2014 in video frames distributed via the Internet by IS fighters. Soon after, Oberholtzer received numerous insults and threats - up to 200 calls and messages per day, because of which he was forced to purchase firearms to protect himself and his family members.

        “They called me a terrorist, a traitor and threatened in every way,” the 52-year-old plumber told the New York Post. “They said they would come to my house and do this and that. We received a lot of phone calls with physical threats.” reprisals. "

        Oberholtzer said that in December 2013, his son used the services of the AutoNation Ford Golf Freeway in Houston, Texas to sell a pickup truck and purchase a similar minivan in return. When, according to the plumber, his son tried to remove the name and phone number of the company from the doors of the pickup truck, the car dealership agent stopped him, saying that they would do it themselves, without spoiling the car’s cover and, accordingly, its presentation.

        After the cadre appeared on the Internet, the plumber from Texas was approached by officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI who wanted to know how his car got to the terrorists. Upon completion of the investigation, one of the FBI agents recommended that Oberholtzer acquire weapons "for personal protection." Since then, according to the plumber, he has not left home without a gun.

      It looks like America decided to divide Syria with the hands of the Kurds. And it seems that the PKK has already been sold to the Americans under their "guarantee." In general, it seems to me that everything that on the eastern part of the Efrat River can go into the possession of the Kurds. And the Kurds, in turn, at the end of the war with Daesh, will announce independence and withdrawal from the autonomy of Syria, under the unspoken protectorate of the Americans.
      I would like to believe that the strategists at the General Staff of Moscow have already taken all measures to neutralize such consequences.

    50 US special forces have already freed 30% of Syria from ISIS. They obtained this data by interviewing local residents who have not yet decided who they are related to - moderate opposition, radical opposition, ISIS or Daesh. But the fact that they are against Assad is 100% accurate. And Assad’s enemies are bosom friends of America and all the Anglo-Saxons.
