A document released by the WikiLeaks website has revealed that undercover US-led NATO forces are operating inside Syria against the Syrian government.
WikiLeaks released a confidential email from an analyst working for the US-based intelligence firm Stratfor, in which he claims to have attended a meeting in the Pentagon with several NATO officials from France and Britain in December 2011.
The analyst said he learned that US-led NATO troops are already on the ground in Syria, training armed terrorist groups.
The analyst claimed in the letter: "SOF [special operation forces] teams (presumably from the US, UK, France, Jordan and Turkey) are already on the ground, focused on recce [reconnaissance] missions and training opposition forces.”
The Stratfor analyst went on to say that "the idea ‘hypothetically’ is to commit guerrilla attacks, assassination campaigns" to overthrow the Syrian government.
This fact is revealed despite claims by the Western military alliance denying the deployment of forces to Syria.
