There goes Obama’s failed foreign policy, buried in the rubble in Syria:
Russia continues to launch airstrikes against U.S.-backed rebels in Syria despite claims by Moscow that it is primarily targeting the Islamic State terrorist group, according to reports.
U.S. officials say Russian airstrikes in Syria, which began at the end of last month, appear to be aimed at propping up Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and pushing back against rebel advances in the northwestern part of the country. The Obama administration has previously called on Assad to step down, and the CIA has trained more moderate rebel groups to apply pressure on the regime. The CIA program has also provided the rebels with TOW anti-tank missiles.
