Overview

Written by the team of Special Operations veterans at SOFREP, THE SYRIA REPORT is a behind-the-scenes look at the roots of the drama and unrest that is unfolding in Syria. Based on information from sources within the intelligence community, using historical case studies and on-the-ground assets, author Kerry Patton reveals the secret history of U.S. involvement in the Middle East: from the United States' former alliance with Iran post-WWII, to clandestine operations involving Saudi princes, to the intricacies of the Iran-Contra Affair, to the overthrow of Qaddafi in Libya—this is a fascinating, never-before-told insider account.

This is the latest 45-page report from the team behind the SOFREP website.
