US Air Strikes Killed Hundreds Of Russian Mercenaries In Syria

Quote:
Asked about the killing of Russian mercenaries in Syria, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in Washington Tuesday that he would leave specifics to the Pentagon but “we have seen in multiple instances foreign forces using mercenaries in battles that will begin to approach the United States.”

It’s not clear who was paying the Russian contingent, whether it was Russia directly, Syria, Iran or a third party. Reports in Russian media have said Wagner -- a shadowy organization known as Russia’s answer to Blackwater, now called Academi -- was hired by Assad or his allies to guard Syrian energy assets in exchange for oil concessions.

Academi? Hmm...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academi


And then I saw this story on Politico;

Keep this on your radar.

I thought Trump was a putin Puppet..

Wait it was OBAMA that let the Russians and Syrians gas civilians.

I guess mister Flexible was the real holster for Putin (as Steve would say on late night TV)
Thanks from webguy4 and Sensible

From the Axios report on this:

Quote:
American forces in Syria killed at least 100 Russian mercenaries fighting for Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad after they launched a failed — and perhaps rogue — attack on a base and oil refinery held by U.S.-led troops, Bloomberg reports, citing a U.S. official and three Russian sources. The U.S. military accepted Russia's claim that it had nothing to do with the attack.
