BP: According to the Washington Post, U.S. President Donald Trump has decided to end the CIA’s covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of Bashar al-Assad. What’s your assessment of this move?
Marcus Papadopoulos: Since when was the Washington Post a reliable or serious source of information concerning international affairs? Indeed, since when was Western mainstream media in general a reliable or serious source of information concerning international affairs? The truth is that the Trump administration has given no such order to the CIA to end its support to Islamist/Wahhabist terrorists in Syria. If President Trump had given that order, we would have heard by now about it from the Syrian Government, verifying it. In reality, what we have seen is a continuation of American support to Islamist/Wahhabist groups fighting against Damascus – Syrian officials have confirmed this on more than one occasion. Further to that, the terrorists in Syria now have an air force and a navy at their disposal – the United States Air Force and the United States Navy – courtesy of Mr Trump having used these to directly attack the Syrian military on two occasions now.
