Obama White House Unsure if Proposed “Syria Safe Zone” Will Work

As the Free Beacon [1] reported:

Pentagon officials are uncertain as to whether they have the authority to direct U.S. troops to protect the Syrian insurgents who will help create and eventually protect the so-called Islamic State “safe zone” on the Syrian-Turkish border.

Last week, the United States and Turkey agreed [2] to rid the roughly 60-mile-long border zone of Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIL or ISIS) terrorists, a plan that would result in heavy reliance on Syrian opposition fighters who are generally more concerned with crippling Bashar al-Assad’s regime than with toppling IS.
