The United States is trying desperately to “erase” any evidence of support for Daesh terrorists, says Scott Bennett, a former US Army psychological warfare officer.
He made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday when asked about a report that the US military admitted its airstrikes in Syria “may have resulted in civilian casualties” over the past several days.
The US military’s Central Command (CENTCOM) said in a statement on Tuesday that it launched multiple attacks against Daesh terrorists in Syria during last week.
It said US warplanes may have targeted civilians in their strikes near the cities of Raqqah, Dayr al-Zawr, and Shaddadah.
Bennett said this is not surprising, but “it is an indicator of the desperation that’s beginning to emerge from the Obama administration there, rushing as fast as they can to erase the evidence of their own complicity and financing and training of the ISIS (Daesh) mercenaries.”
