The US maintain a military presence in Syria and continue to provide military support for the Kurds, despite statements about its termination, stated a former CIA officer Philip Giraldi.
“The US presence in Syria continues. The Turks say that there is 13 US bases the country now, some of which, apparently, permanent”, — he said.
According to Giraldi, the US presence in the region will allow Americans “to attend any talks that will take place in order to put an end to the civil war.”
