According to ex-FBI translator and whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds, Col Riad al-Assad, head of the Free Syria Army, has been working since May 2011 with the US & NATO from inside the USAF base at Incirlik, smuggling US weapons into Syria, participating in US psychological and information warfare inside Syria as the middle-man whom Syrian protesters tend to trust, and helping to funnel intelligence and military operators across the border and organise night-time drop-offs by air. The joint US/NATO secret training camp in the USAF base at Incirlik began operations in Apr-May 2011 to organize and expand the dissident base in Syria. Since then, in addition to Col Riad al-Assad, several other high-ranking Syrian military and intelligence officials have been added to operations HQ in the USAF base. Weekly weapons-smuggling operations have been carried out with full US/NATO participation since last May. The HQ also includes an information warfare division where US-NATO crafted communications are directed to dissidents in Syria via the core group of Syrian military and Intelligence defectors. Sibel first reported this two months ago on her blog, Boiling Frogs Post (“Secret US-NATO Training & Support Camp to Oust Current Syrian President”, Nov 21 2011). Ex-CIA officer Phil Giraldi has also reported more recently on American Conservative Magazine that unmarked NATO planes are bringing weapons and volunteers from the Libyan theatre to Turkey for forward transmission into Syria (“NATO vs Syria”, Dec 19 2011).
