Syria Fog Part Two

The Ochelli Effect 10-24-2019 Carmine Savastano

This Thor’s Day Carmine Savastano returned to the show to continue the discussion on the conflicts in Syria.

Untangling the history of this slice of the Middle East is not easy. The strategy and achievable objectives for many entities are simply not clear. What is the US policy in Syria? Does anyone know?

Are there interesting leads waiting to be mined from the stolen Clinton e-mail dumps? Is this typical of behavior from one administration to another?

Is it easy to separate terrorists from rebels? How much of the confusion in Syria sounds like the confusion in other places when intervention is the operational method?

Men and Women in harm’s way may one day be outraged by the lack of focus and purpose employed by their chains of command.
