Recently published Wikileaks may point towards spec ops troops on the ground in Syria…

Apparently, a STRATFOR analyst sat down with the Chief of Staff of the Air Force’s Strategic Studies Group — a team of four Air Force lieutenant colonels along with one French and one British officer — at the Pentagon and then wrote up a quick report claiming the SSG boys implied that Western operators are on the ground in Syria.

After a couple hours of talking, they said without saying that SOF teams (presumably from US, UK, France, Jordan, Turkey) are already on the ground focused on recce missions and training opposition forces… They have been told to prepare contingencies and be ready to act within 2–3 months, but they still stress that this is all being done as contingency planning, not as a move toward escalation.”

This sounds an awful lot like the earliest reports we had of Western troops secretly operating inside Libya before NATO air forces began pummeling Gadhafi’s Army one year ago this month.

    By the time the public reads an article like this, the teams have been rotated for at least a few months. Syria get ready for a new government. Assad, say your prayers and say hi to Moamar when you see him.
