President Obama, please don't telegraph any more of the battle plan to Islamic State

President Barack "CYA" Obama has topped himself this time, as a senior Administration official announced ahead of an Administration announcement this afternoon that under 50 Special Forces are being deployed to Syria. From Reuters timestamped 1:20 PM EDT:
The U.S. special operations forces in Syria would be stationed in rebel-held territory, coordinate air drops to rebels and resupplying those forces as they move toward Raqqa, the declared capital of Islamic State, U.S. officials told Reuters.
They could also help coordinate air strikes from the ground, the officials said.
The number of special operations troops in Syria would be fewer than 50, said a senior administration official, speaking ahead of an announcement on Friday by the administration. One U.S. official said the number was likely to be in the range of 20 to 30 but could not provide details.
No word yet on whether the Administration has also taken out an ad in the Terrorist Times to provide GPS locations of the U.S. Special Forces.

My Dear Pundita,

The Battle Plan is a TV show.

Obama functions as intended and designed.

For actual War contact RT or the RU consul.
