US Special Forces operatives have been photographed fighting alongside the Kurdish militia in northern Syria in a drive against the Islamic State-held city of Raqqa. The Pentagon insists the Americans are there in “advise and assist” capacity only, however. A photographer for Agence France-Presse (AFP) took pictures of the American special operatives in what The Washington Post identified as the village of Fatisah, roughly 30 miles (48 km) north of Raqqa. Kurdish fighters from the People’s Protection Units (YPG) – part of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fighting against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in northern Syria – identified the men as Americans. The SDF launched a push against the IS capital this week, following the secret visit to the northern Syrian region by General Joseph Votel, head of the US Central Command (CENTCOM). The Post’s Checkpoint blog confirmed the identification, noting that one of the images shows three men operating a 40mm Mk 47 automatic grenade launcher, a specialized weapon used by US Special Operations units. There were more than a dozen US troops in the village, according to the photographer. The White House has admitted to the presence of up to 300 US operatives in Syria. Well folks were in Syria without letting congress, the senate, or the American people know about it ever. Guessing with the new AUMF passed a couple months ago, Obama thinks he can just use our military to his liking without anyone in America knowing about the moves until now. Once again we have proof Obama is just like Bush in thinking he can just order the military to go where ever at his demand, instead of letting the American people especially congress know about it. Once again our president commits another crime against the US military, by sending them into battlefield operations without a plan. It's like Obama kicked them in their butt and told them do your best.
