But is the U.S. now allowing its last remnants to survive in Syria to spite Tehran?
By Scott Ritter
October 18, 2018 "Information Clearing House" - Until recently the United States viewed the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, as a major threat to regional stability in the Middle East. Barack Obama made it a mission to roll back ISISís territorial and propagandistic gain, and Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to ďkick ISISís ass.Ē The United States expended considerable effort, both military and political, in a campaign to defeat the terror group in Iraq and, to a lesser extent, Syria.
But there is also no doubt that the bulk of the effort came from Iran, not the United States. Without Iranian involvement, ISIS would still have a formidable presence in both Iraq and Syria.
