While DC implodes over the Russian investigation, some other important issues are still going on...

U.S. officials have said that the U.S.-led coalition in Syria struck pro-Assad forces that were advancing inside an established “de-confliction” zone and toward a military base that the coalition was using to train anti-ISIS fighters. As Jen Daskal noted, the strike was not intended to reflect a change in U.S. policy; U.S. officials claim that they acted to protect U.S. and partner forces in the field. The incident raises pressing questions about two issues: the scope of Congress’s 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) and the risk of escalation...


SOUTHWEST ASIA – The coalition struck pro-regime forces that were advancing well inside an established de-confliction zone northwest of At Tanf, Syria, May 18, and that posed a threat to U.S. and partner forces at At Tanf.  This action was taken after apparent Russian attempts to dissuade Syrian pro-regime movement south towards At Tanf were unsuccessful, a coalition aircraft show of force, and the firing of warning shots.  Coalition forces have been operating in the At Tanf area for many months training and advising vetted partner forces engaged in the fight against ISIS.  The agreed upon de-confliction zone agreement remains in effect.
