Are U.S. Special Forces Operating In Syria?

DoD Buzz: Petraeus Suggests U.S. Commandos Operating in Syria

Retired four-star Army Gen. David Petraeus on Tuesday returned to Capitol Hill for the first time since he resigned three years ago as CIA director amid revelations of an extramarital affair.

Much of his testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee focused on sweeping recommendations for changing the U.S. strategy in the Middle East, in part by having the U.S. military take on a bigger role in war-torn Syria.

But the former commander of U.S. troops in Iraq and later Afghanistan also included an interesting statement that seemed to corroborate what Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, head of Central Command, recently said regarding American commandos being on the ground in Syria.

WNU Editor: A commentator in this DoD post (adrestia) made the following obvious observation ....

.... Let me see if I have this correct. Petraeus plead guilty to mishandling classified information and documents, which should have revoked his security clearance, yet he has information on special mission troops in Syria, which should by all accounts be classified TOP SECRET.
