Syria: watch the funny Major General James B. Jarrard

Syria: watch the funny U.S. Army spokesman and Major General James B. Jarrard Army Maj. Gen. James B. Jarrard, commander of Special Operations Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve, Kuwait, briefs Pentagon reporters via satellite on progress in the effort to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. It was about the progress made in the fight against the IS. A journalist asks Jarrard in the course of the briefing how many US troops are currently in Syria and Iraq. The army spokesman is visibly overwhelmed with the question and is powerfully stumbling. He replies: 'Er... so there are... we have... ÄHHHM 55,000 Syrian or 5,000... oh, I'm sorry. I think there are just under 4,000 U.S. soldiers in Syria who support the efforts in... err against the IS and the SDF'. The journalist then wonders: 'So you have 4,000 US soldiers in Syria? So I thought it was officially just 1,000?' Jarrard apologizes and says, 'Excuse me, I've misspelled it. There are about 500 soldiers in Syria'. As a result, laughter erupts among the press representatives. The US mission in Syria is highly controversial, as there is neither a UN mandate nor a permit from Syria's legitimate government. It would, however, violate international law. There is speculation that the US has stationed far more soldiers in Syria than the currently officially mentioned number of 503. Even Raymond Thomas, who is the head of the United States Special Operations Command, concedes that the US troops are against international law in Syria. watch the full Military Official Briefs Reporters here (ca 50 Minutes)
