    US meets with Syrian Kurds linked to terror group.....

    Well now, this is a first and it will cause more tensions between us and the Turks. Looks like Team BO just might be considering the using of the Kurds inside Syria. What say ye?


    The State Department said Thursday that it has met directly with a Kurdish political party in Syria that is linked to a guerrilla group considered by the U.S. and Turkey as a terrorist organization. The weekend meeting in Paris with the Kurdish Democratic Union Party, known as the PYD, is likely to further complicate relations between Washington and Ankara. The two countries are negotiating over how much Turkey is willing to contribute to a global coalition that aims to defeat the Islamic State militant group in Syria and Iraq.

    State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the U.S. is "certainly aware of the connection" between the PKK and what she described as some members of the PYD. She said the U.S. still considers the PKK as a terrorist group, and "we have the same concerns we've had for a long time." It was the first time U.S. officials have met with the PYD, although the two sides have communicated in the past through intermediaries. Psaki also predicted the U.S. would continue to engage with the PYD, although she said it was too soon to consider whether the Kurdish fighters would be given foreign help to battle the Islamic State.....snip~
