U.S. coordinating secret war against Syria


The US National Security Council States brought together the secret services chiefs of the main State actors in the secret war against Syria, revealed the Washington Post [1]. The two-day seminar was held during the Geneva 2 peace conference, even though the invitation stipulates that all parties are committed to stopping violence.

Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar and Turkey were present, just to mention a few.

National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, received Saudi Interior Minister Prince Muhammad bin Nayef , who replaced Prince Bandar bin Sultan, presently hospitalized. She commended Ryad for currently funding both the political opposition in the West and the Contras in Syria.

The United States is overseeing the establishment of an army of Contras in Jordan, to which the Saudis delivered armored units in the Spring 2013 and is made up of 13,000 soldiers. However, it can not invade Syria without air support. The discussions focused on the type of anti-aircraft equipment which could be provided without threatening Israeli air domination of the Middle East .
