Here’s the REAL Reason Obama Sent Troops to Syria (But The Media Will Never Say)
We predicted earlier this week President Obama’s hand would be forced by SecDef Ash Carter’s statement before the Senate Armed Services Committee. And so it’s happened. Yesterday, Barack Obama announced we’re sending in a force to fight ISIS — 50 U.S. Special Operations warriors.
As reported by Fox News:
President Obama has authorized sending dozens of Special Operations Forces to Syria to help advise local ground troops and coalition efforts in the fight against the Islamic State, officials said Friday.

That, along with Al Nusra Front (al-Qaeda affiliated) and ISIS fighters.
The Syrian rebels who were trained and armed are being decimated by the Russian-backed force. Does anyone know the Russian troop strength on the ground in Syria?
Oh and why did we just tell the enemy we’re sending 50 troops into that zone? There’s a reason why the Obama administration
