Yet even the US government special envoy for Syria admitted on video that Idlib is home to the largest concentration of al-Qaeda fighters. Are Trump’s advisors feeding him false information? Why continue the disastrous policy of backing al-Qaeda and other extremists in hope of overthrowing Assad? Why doesn’t US policy change even after it is shown to be a huge failure?
