Following on my map quest, here’s a CNN story from today and guess what, it’s using an Institute for the Study of War map too. Although you can see that tight strike group to the north of Hama sure looks like it was a brown background, which is Jabhat al-Nusra on their map legend. That’s Al Qaeda in Syria, which kind of spoiled the Obama administration narrative. Are those our CIA-backed “Syrian moderates”?
MSNBC.com doesn’t even have Syria as a headline when I scrolled down the page a minute ago. Their lead story is “Rupert Murdoch: Ben Carson would be a ‘real black president’.”
Keep your eyes posted for Institute for the Study of War maps….
