Last year, Bush set up the Iran-Syria Policy and Operations Group. Its aim: to support Syrian opposition groups, like Frank Ghadry, to block Syria’s access to money, and to send weapons to Syria’s enemies.
Bush has now closed the committee down, in another sign of the thaw between the US and Syria. Last year, the group was meeting every week.
It was modelled on a similar Iraq committee set up before the US invaded that country. It was, essentially, a regime change committee.
