CIA INTERVENTIONS IN SYRIA: A BRIEF HISTORY

This partial timeline provides evidence that the U.S. government and Obama in particular bear a significant responsibility for theSyrian war and the results of that war.

Obama approved elements of CIA plans that go back over 65 years.

In my opinion, the most serious U.S. meddling is what the Wikileaks cables reveal, which is the State Department’s organization of domestic opposition to its elected government. This provoked the revolution that started in Daraa, and that provided an opening for radical and armed Muslim elements to enter the battle. Next in importance is Obama’s position that Assad must go, because this guides the entry of the CIA and Pentagon into the war while committing the U.S. to a politically untenable and impossible course of attempting to reconstitute a new government among radical and rival forces if and when Assad falls or rebel forces gain control. Undetermined but significant amounts of arms and training have ended up flowing to ISIS and other radical groups that the U.S. cannot control, and these forces can’t be dislodged without bigger military commitments by the U.S. Neither the CIA’s activities nor the Pentagon’s failed training program have resulted in control over the battlefield or those groups, which have expanded control over Syrian territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Obama Administration's policy in Syria can be neatly summed up in only two words: epic fail.
