The Pentagon warned Russians about the attack on Syria, but forgot about their own mercenaries, – German media 

Uncoordinated work between their intelligence and US troops, “erroneously” caused an air strike on the mercenaries who fought on their side in Syria, reports Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.

Thus, the Americans proved to be more prudent with the Russians – having warned them in advance about the air strike – than with their own mercenaries, the publication stresses.

The US “mistakenly” inflicted an air strike on mercenaries fighting on their side, reports Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten. As the publication reminds, mercenaries from all over the world are fighting in Syria, most of them are led by the CIA, MI6, and the National Intelligence Organization of Turkey. Financing was assumed by Saudi Arabia and Persian Gulf countries.

As the intelligence services “got out of control,” Donald Trump intends to delegate the leadership of military operations to his generals, and during this transitional period, “critical situations” are possible. Obviously, the agreement between the special services and the military does not function perfectly, otherwise such “mistakes” would not have occurred.

As writes Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, earlier Trump stated that, in contrast to Obama, he would transfer operational powers to the Pentagon and American commanders. This step was supported by the army, which was often “dissatisfied with the slow decision-making process under Obama.”

According to the US authorities, their military intelligence functions “perfectly.” Trump praised the army for their precise air strike of 59 rockets, which occurred a few days ago, while the Americans warned the Russians in advance of the attack.

“Apparently, Trump’s generals are better connected with the Russians than with mercenaries who fought on the side of the US in Syria,” sums up Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.
