C-Low and another reader (forgive me for dumping the mail before I got your name) are noting that several Middle Eastern websites state that US Marines have conducted an air assault into Syria.
More to come, but I really need to verify this. MARSOC? Marines from the Battalion Landing Team hovering offshore? The SPMAGTF-CR that is in the area? A misidentification (US Marines are rock stars in the Middle East...we're credited with actions done by SOCOM)?
We'll find out soon enough I guess.
