Trump Admin Gets on the Al-Qaeda Bandwagon to Deepen Wedge Between Russia and Turkey

The Trump administration is seizing the chance to egg Turkey on Syria. The farther Erdogan goes in his Idlib adventure the more pressure there is on Russian-Turkish relations, and the more the US can advertise its unquestioned support for Turkey contrasted with Russian opposition and resistance.

It would be clever politics but for the fact it means siding with al-Qaeda.

Now we have Turkey protecting Hayat Tahrir al-Sham from the Syrians, and the US offering to “coordinate” with Turkey (presumably to insulate it from Russian pressure and/or reaction) as it does that.
