U.S. Offering Russia Military Pact in Syria

ABC News reports that “the United States is offering Russia a new military pact against the Islamic State and al-Qaida in Syria, according to a leaked U.S. proposal that, if finalized, could dramatically alter America’s role in the Arab country’s five-year civil war.”  

“The document, published by The Washington Post, calls for joint bombing operations, a command-and-control headquarters and other synchronized efforts. U.S. and Russian officials with expertise in intelligence, targeting and air operations will ‘work together to defeat’ the extremist groups, the eight-page paper states.”  

“U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who was to discuss the proposal in Moscow Thursday, declined to comment.”
