DEBKAfile is reporting that the US has special forces in Syria marking targets of interest.
“Although President George W. Bush and administration spokesmen have carefully skirted any explicit threat of military action against Syria,
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that Sunday night, April 12, small teams of American undercover troops were already inside Syria marking out the

that have come to light…”
