U.S. believes Russia purposefully bombed secret U.S. base in Syria to force Washington’s hand

Deputy Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter briefs the press at the Pentagon in Arlington, Va., on Sept. 25, 2013.

(Worthy News) - U.S. military officials believe Russia aircraft, operating out of Syria in June, purposefully bombed a secret U.S. facility in Syrian territory near the Jordanian border.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Russia took the action against the base, that sometimes housed secret American and British forces, in order to pressure the White House to coordinate actions with Russia in the Syrian theater.

The Obama administration complied with Russia’s wishes after the strike, which killed four American-supported rebels. A contingent of British special forces had recently left the facility the day before. The base is used to prevent Islamic State fighters from infiltrating via Jordan to enter the fight against the U.S. coalition.

The Russians gave conflicting excuses for the attack which was in an area they had not operated in before. Several iterations of explanations were found to be inaccurate. [ Source ]

  1. Well let's see. Now we have evidence that the Malaysian airliner was shot down by a U.S. supplied ground to air missile shot by a Ukrainian soldier. AT LEAST WE'RE TOLD THAT HE WAS UKRANIAN!
    So now, Putin reminds Yomama to stay on his side of Syria as earlier agreed upon. If Yomama doesn't, there's going to be accidents like this one.
    "I" think Putin should NEVER have let Yomama put ANY U.S. troops in Syria. Yomama would just LOVE to have an INCIDENT!
