The U.S. Military Bases in Syria: the Reaction Was Not Slow in Coming

As it was to be expected, the reaction of the U.S. Department of Defense (the US DoD) to the publication on the location of the U.S. military bases in Syria was not slow in coming.

Pentagon spokesman Major Adrian Rankin-Galloway said the US Department of Defense is concerned about the disclosure of secret military bases in Syria, which was due to the publication of a map of American positions by the Turkish state news agency.

“The publication of the secret military information exposes coalition forces to unnecessary risk and may disrupt current operations to defeat ISIS. And although we cannot independently verify the sources that contributed to this publication, we would be very concerned if NATO ally officials deliberately put our forces at risk,” told the spokesman.

An expert of the Atlantic Council (Editor’s note: it is an American think tank in the field of international affairs founded in 1961 that provides a forum for international political, business, and intellectual leaders), Aaron Stein, claims the information on the location of the notorious military bases the Anadolu news agency received from the Turkish authorities. Mr. Stein, however, did not comment on why the Turkish government decided to leak damaging info about the U.S. bases in Syria.

It should be noticed that the news source stated the data on the location of the bases was obtained not as a result of a leak but in the wake of its own investigation, as well as from publications of Kurdish fighters in social networks. The person written the article for Anadolu, correspondent Levent Tok even stated that “the U.S. leadership should have thought about the possible development of events ages ago, when Washington was only about to plan to cooperate with a terrorist organization” (Editor’s note: Kurds).

To be recalled is that the map with the pointed ten U.S. bases in the Syrian provinces of Al-Hasakah, Manbij and Raqqa, as well as in the areas of Harab-Isk and Rmeilan, was published on Tuesday by Turkey-controlled leading media, Anadolu Agency. The source also reported on the number of the U.S. servicemen deployed at these bases.
Thus, the true source of data on American bases in Syria remains unclear. It is also unknown what purpose the source of leak pursued when sharing the materials.

Who and why declassified the data on the location of the U.S. military bases in Syria we propose you reading in a special investigation report at Inside Syria Media Center that to appear soon.

    This current wave of American military expansion — 1000 foreign bases?! — is completely unprecedented in all of human history.

    Why are the American people silent about it? It’s insane!

    • JohnZ  July 23, 2017 at 12:09 pm

      Why? Just turn on your TV and watch a couple minutes of the propaganda spewed by the CMMM.
      Millions of ignorant and dumb as a box of rocks Americans continue to swallow whatever b.s. the media whores and presstitutes puke out. That’s why most Americans don’t know sheit.

    The US military refuses to act within the Constitution and ignores any need to act within Congressional approval and voting. It is a military with its dirty nose in every conflict and secret bases are everywhere. Why does the US have over 200 permanent bases worldwide and cannot justify even a dozen of them. Why did the US spend a $trillion on SDI which can quickly annihilate any land threat anywhere. The American worker and tax payer is never going to wake up to the fact that he is being driven to lower and lower standards of living and just lives from paycheck to paycheck. It’s total war crazed madness by an out of control criminal military hiding behind a once great flag.

      Constitution???? How about electing Santa as the next President of US?

      “The American worker and tax payer is never going to wake up to the fact that he is being driven to lower and lower standards of living…”

      Plenty of them already have. Why do you think the Occupy movement gained any traction or why the 2013 Syria escalation had to be called off? The problem is that waking up is not the same thing as getting out of bed and doing something about it. This transition will take more pressure for many people, yet as the banksters get more desperate to protect their crime syndicate, that pressure will come sooner or later.

      “Right now, there is an awakening taking place that’s unprecedented in human history. People are starting to see things and question the system like never before. And if we’re able to keep this situation from spinning out into violence too soon, then we are going to win this.”

      Eduardo, to replace the intellectual gnome currently there.

    The United States didn’t have any legitimate reason to involve Syria, Special Operations Command Chief Gen. Raymond Thomas says on July 21, Friday. from: Inside Syria Media Center

    America once again shows its true colors: that of a nation that has declared war on the rest of the world on behalf of israel and zionism. Its military is nothing more than a mercenary army fighting for the zionists.
    There is no reason any longer to”support our troops” they are mercenary killers for an illegitimate cause and an immoral philosophy. The illusion that America is attempting to bring stability and democracy to the middle east is just that, an illusion and anyone who continues to believe this blatant lie is either brain dead or a paid shill for israel. Unfortunately there are still millions of brain dead Americans, who minds have been turned to mush from TV and sports, totally clueless and ignorant of the truth.They get their “news” from Fox or CNN or whatever propaganda outlet they watch, and have become so brainwashed they believe every word said to them. These Americans are dumber than a rabbit. They don’t know sheit, yet they spew the gibberish fed to them from the likes of Sean Hannity or Wolf Blitzer.
    America, the land of the eternally stupid.

      I am waiting that Rupert Murdock receives a noble peace price and all the Hyaenas working for Fox Pulitzer prices for always reporting what is not going on in the real world.

    It’s all probably part of the game. We hear stories of opposing parties, but we have to ask ourselves how much is true of that. You need ‘enemies’ to get things done.

  6. Aftab shah  July 21, 2017 at 10:59 pm

    What a joke !
    Does the DOD think that a place from which so many troops and Air crafts keep operating will remain a secret ?

  7. Cold Wind  July 21, 2017 at 5:24 pm

    In an age of satellites and high flying drones, we can bet the Russians knew precisely where these bases were, there size and purpose–all the time. Yet, the Russians kept the Americans secret. Why? In what way has Russia benefited by keeping this secret? Clearly, the Russians have become resigned to a powerful American presence in Syria, which suggest the Russians are not opposed to the division of Syria and may be working some deal with the Israelis, (America’s Siamese twin) to this effect.

  8. Eduardo  July 21, 2017 at 3:50 pm

    How can ANY American not feel sick in the guts while entering the base or is the above picture photo shopped? “HONOR BOUND TO DEFEND FREEDOM”

    Honor to whom and for what?
    Defend freedom or spread terror on behalf of terror?

    Everything in this illusion of a world is completely reversed. Lies are truth and to be honoured equals being sentenced as a criminal.

    • JohnZ  July 22, 2017 at 6:20 am

      Eduardo, Indeed. What a joke. Everything you stated is true. Those poor ignorant saps who enlisted in the U.S. military are nothing more than mercenaries for zionism.
      Whenever I see these empty hollow slogans, it’s enough to make me gag.

    • DJ C  July 22, 2017 at 3:59 pm

      Eduardo, those signs and slogans are meant for the idiot troops. Something to make them think they are doing God’s work. The rest of us know it’s complete malarkey.

    • Eduardo  July 22, 2017 at 4:47 pm

      DJ C like “Arbeit macht frei” over the gates of a concentration camp

    • JohnZ  July 23, 2017 at 6:11 am

      How about: Israel Uber Alles.

  9. Harry Haller  July 21, 2017 at 2:47 pm

    The base was a secret to whom; Assad, ISIS or the American public. I’m going to take a quess at the later.
