There's another option.
The CIA could discontinue their LARPING session in that part of the world ( and the rest of it really) and mind it's own business, instead of starting proxy wars and terrorist organizations.
I don't really understand why the US is all surprised that Syria is falling apart, since they started the proxy war against Assad's government.
But there you go, propaganda and obfuscation of the facts will do that.

There is a very easy way to take down the Assad regime without him using chemical weapons on his own people.
If America and its allies gave the Free Syrian Army anti-tank weapons, radios and simple arms, things that could not be used against America in the future, Assad's forces would be overwhelmed. For example, if America gave the opposition the RG-7, a simple anti-tank weapon, Syria's old tanks would be destroyed. Such a weapon can't damage American tanks, so there is very little for us to loose..
Or we can just keep watching every day hundreds of innocent people die.
