David Ignatious and Harakat Hazm

" In 2014, I visited the leaders of one of the vetted groups, known as Harakat al-Hazm, at a safe house along the Syrian-Turkish border. The fighters were despondent. The United States had just bombed a Jabhat al-Nusra camp nearby, seeking to kill militants from its so-called Khorasan Group. The CIA-backed fighters said this action had destroyed their credibility. They were right. Jabhat al-Nusra soon chased them from their headquarters." Oh, yes, Mr. Ignatius. We remember your trip and meeting with Harakat Hazm.  You in fact hailed them as the group which was going to liberate Syria at the time.  How prophetic you are about foreign policy really.
