[Gordon Duff] “We have some confirmation on this from our own Syrian sources. The numbers are much higher than just the 14 names released by the Syrian MP via Facebook. That report of 14 officers might be a different group, as it had specific names… The list of 14 names leaked by a Syrian MP are not the real names of those officers, they are cover names; it is standard practice to use a fake ID when serving in a secret op. This is a leak that MSM is ignoring…
[Jim Dean] “Well the doo doo has hit the fan if this is true. By that I mean we will be asking for confirmation from the Syrian Justice minister’s office. No one is carrying the story.
[article] “Earlier in December, SF already noted that the US desperate attempts to push a “diplomatic solution” in Aleppo could indicate that the Obama administration stalling for time to extricate US mercenaries and special service members from the Aleppo pocket: Considering that US-led coalition military advisers have been widely operating across Syria, training and assisting to the so-called “moderate opposition” openly linked with al-Qaeda, the recently appeared reports are likely true.”
[Jim Dean] “My, my…this certainly came as a surprise. One would think the UN people would be smart enough not to want to show their faces in Aleppo after the PR terror war they inflicted on the people there, prolonging their suffering under the Sharia jihadis.
[article] “The UN Security Council came up on Sunday with a “good text” of the draft resolution on the deployment of UN observers to Syrian Aleppo and the vote will take place on Monday, Russian envoy to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said…
“US Permanent Representative to the UN Samantha Power said Washington hoped that on Monday the UN Security Council would vote unanimously in favor of the draft resolution on monitoring in Aleppo. On Sunday, the UN Security Council held consultation to discuss the modalities of evacuations in Syrian Aleppo, including the deployment of observers on the ground.”
[Jim Dean] “As VT predicted, the freeing of Aleppo was quickly followed by a call to renew negotiations, as this move would kill the expected smear claims that Damascus was seeking a military solution. The meetings being reported on today had to be in the planning for some time. The big change is that it is just a three-way discussion going on. The Western and Gulf terror sponsors and Israelis are in the bleachers on this one — a tidal shift away from their obstructionist policies.
[article] “Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Iran, Russia and Turkey have started the process of finding a political solution to the Syria crisis. There is no military solution to the Syria conflict and the country’s crisis can only be solved through political approaches, Zarif said in Moscow on Tuesday.”
[Jim Dean] “When I did my Debate Show yesterday at the studio, they caught me flatfooted about the Syrian Ambassador confirming the story of the 14 US coalition Intel officers in Aleppo, but not about the original story that they had been captured. We may never know if the capture story was true or a psyop to sweat those trying to get them back. Our report from our own sources of a much larger number that appears to have gotten out…
[article] “On December 19, Syrian ambassador to the UN, Bashar Jaafari, made a statement that 14 foreign intelligence officers were remaining inside the eastern part of Aleppo city and disclosed their alleged names and nationalities… Jaafari said that the goal of the UN resolution on Aleppo is to allow these foreign officers to get a safe passage from this area. Last weekend, the same names appeared in reports, claiming that the Syrian Special Forces captured 14 foreign intelligence officers in Aleppo.”
