And nothing is being done to spring these Green Berets and Rangers that Assad might be holding after three years??
shrug the MSM will never help get this story out... its too positive for the president and republicans in an election year.
Can't even confirm the incident. All we know is that Russian intel reported it, as well as a few nonMSM sources. For all we know it might not have happened, or they might have been sprung in exchange for not pursuing into Syria. That said, the report is similar to other incidents near the same location, in the same conditions just weeks later, and reported by MSM.
Nothing new here. Just move along, alright?
Good article Blacktrain.
I fully expect that Saddam's "goodies" were dispersed to several other nations. OTOH, I simply can't believe that our extensive "overhead assets" failed to record and track any of that activity.
That's just it...the movements from wmd sites to Syria were recorded and widely reported as such.
Putin has clearly returned to cold-war aggression, but this time around is different. Vietnam hurt us, but Afghanistan killed the Russian economy.
We have a foot on their necks and can hold them down as long as we want, simply by refusing aid. The emphasis on lighter forces for Iraq now comes clear, we can sustain the effort there indefinately. Russia's not exactly bluffing with a ten high hand, but we definitely hold the winning cards.
This will be even more true in post-Mullah Iran.
My guess is that we have precision UTM coordinates (GPS markers) on a significant number of those hiding places. IMO, a few well-placed explosions that leave widespread contaminated areas in the Bekaa Valley would definitely be worthwhile..
........."as well as the Iraqi Perspectives Project report released two weeks ago"
is anyone familiar with this?

Please add the keyword prewardocs to any articles pertaining to this subject.
Makes me wonder where the source of info came that allowed the Russians to tip them off re the above attempt to capture movement of the weapons. How many moles and how far up they go?
Probably moles thruout the pentagon, CIA and state dept. The political elites prefer to be politically correct and let our spec ops guys get "whacked" rather than ethnically cleanse the agencies.
I just wish the "New Media Journal" story had a few footnotes and links to confirmatory information. Without those it's kinda like reading a NewsMax story.
