The attacks-for which the Pentagon eventually accepted responsibility-were followed by a callous and thoroughly-unprofessional tirade by the administration’ chief diplomat at the United Nations, Samantha Power.

The attack on Deir Ezzor was a flagrant act of betrayal. For the first time in the five year-long war, US warplanes targeted an SAA military outpost killing 62 Syrian regulars. The surprise attacks – which lasted for the better part of an hour and were followed by a coordinated ground assault by members of ISIS- were intended to torpedo the fragile ceasefire agreement and send a message to Moscow that the US was prepared to achieve its strategic objectives in Syria whether it had to launch direct attacks on defenders of the regime or not.
