Why is that? These two vile and evil people who have caused massive bloodshed and Obama continues to do so get a pass. Why are they not war criminals? Where are the groups in Europe pushing their governments to issue arrest warrants should either of them travel to Europe. Oh, that’s right. They hate Bush and love Obama. I forgot.
The Republican Party supports Hillary and Barack with their mealy mouth protestations of their “foreign policy”. Not one Candidate except Hillary Clinton has any idea what they would do as president except do more of what Hillary and Barack did and continue to do. Trump wanted Russia to take over and get bogged down in the mud but they were too smart and withdrew and are pushing for peace talks and a constitution for Syria looking like the good guys.
All this death, destruction and maiming because of the belief that Al Assad needs to be overthrown after having overthrown Qaddafi and Mubarak. America is diseased.

Some lines in the article:
In mid-February, a CIA-armed militia called Fursan al Haq, or Knights of Righteousness, was run out of the town of Marea, about 20 miles north of Aleppo, by Pentagon-backed Syrian Democratic Forces moving in from Kurdish-controlled areas to the east.
The attacks come amid continued heavy fighting in Syria and illustrate the difficulty facing U.S. efforts to coordinate among dozens of armed groups that are trying to overthrow the government of President Bashar Assad, fight the Islamic State militant group and battle one another all at the same time.
President Barack Obama recently authorized a new Pentagon plan to train and arm Syrian rebel fighters, relaunching a program that was suspended in the fall after a string of embarrassing setbacks, which included recruits being ambushed and handing over much of their U.S.-issued ammunition and trucks to an al-Qaida affiliate.
The CIA, meanwhile, has its own operations center inside Turkey from which it has been directing aid to rebel groups in Syria, providing them with TOW antitank missiles from Saudi Arabian weapons stockpiles.
While the Pentagon's actions are part of an overt effort by the U.S. and its allies against the Islamic State, the CIA's backing of militias is part of a separate covert U.S. effort aimed at keeping pressure on the Assad government in hopes of prodding the Syrian leader to the negotiating table.
"Fighting over territory in Aleppo demonstrates how difficult it is for the U.S. to manage these really localized and, in some cases, entrenched conflicts,"
The clashes brought the U.S. and Turkish officials to "loggerheads,"
But continued fighting among different U.S.-backed groups may be inevitable, experts on the region said.
"You certainly have the potential for it becoming a larger problem as people fight for territory and control of the northern border area in Aleppo."
