John Allen and Charles Lister: their advice about Al-Qai`dah

This is actually their recommendation: that the US should help Al-Qa`idah in East Aleppo in order to avoid the spread of Al-Qa`idah later: "The city’s symbolism and strategic value are unmatched, and allowing it to fall would dramatically empower extremist narratives. Groups linked to al-Qaeda would reap the rewards of our shortcomings."
