Top Secret? Jordan Furious After Pentagon Reveals Anti-ISIL Training Site

The Pentagon has altered records to try and cover up its disclosure that one of its training camps to battle Islamic State militants is located in Jordan – information Jordan had requested be kept private.

The slip happened last week as a Pentagon officer briefed reporters on condition of anonymity. In an effort to hide the screw-up, the Pentagon has since redacted any mention of the training camp from its public records, the Washington Times reported.

The Pentagon typically only discusses aid partner nations provide to its operations against Islamic State militants only after those partner nations have publicly spoken about those contributions.

Jordan has not publicly provided details about its plan to support US operations. The ally nation fears retaliation if it is seen as being too close to the US or getting too involved in neighboring Syria.
