Key Kerry moments at 02:00, and again at approximately 18:30 forward.
The discussion from 18:30 through to 29:00 are exceptionally revealing and should be listened to by anyone who has wondered what was going on in Syria. Kerry even makes mention of the “Responsibility to Protect, or R2P” principle:
The problem in the Obama/Kerry’s secret strategy became clear when ISIS grew in sufficient strength to give the White House optimism for the scheme – however, instead of capitulation Assad then turned to Russia for help.
So the US was watching DAESH, knowing they were growing and, despite having their ‘coalition’ in place not doing anything? This is born out by statements from Bouthiana Shabaan last year, who said that the US was ‘Not serious’ about tackling ISIS in Syria.
