US Caught Faking It in Syria
The great danger of faking your ability to do something in the public square is that someone with an actual desire to the job you are pretending to do might come along and show you up.

Raqqa's dirty secret - BBC News
Lorry driver Abu Fawzi thought it was going to be just another job.

He drives an 18-wheeler across some of the most dangerous territory in northern Syria. Bombed-out bridges, deep desert sand, even government forces and so-called Islamic State fighters don’t stand in the way of a delivery.

But this time, his load was to be human cargo. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters opposed to IS, wanted him to lead a convoy that would take hundreds of families displaced by fighting from the town of Tabqa on the Euphrates river to a camp further north.

What Do We Really Know About the Anbar Awakening? - WoTR, Oct 31, 2017

Al-Qaeda replaced tribal loyalty with ideological fervor, disrupting tribal control of smuggling routes and their financial benefits. Abu Sittar and his compatriots, upset by al-Qaeda’s disruption, also sensed an opportunity to increase their own power by allying with American forces.
