Zafar Bangash links the US and Saudi Arabia to terrorist groups connected with ISIS and Al Queda. They are pushing to have two of these groups, Jasish al-Islam (Army of Islam) — proven to be the real terrorists behind the East Ghouta chemical attacks in 2013, and Ahrar al-Shams (Nation of Syria), included in the current Geneva Talks. The irony of this is beyond words. It blatantly links the US to supporting terrorists.
Bangash explains the YPG, whom both Russia and Syria accept as part of the talks. The YPG is basically a Kurdish militia that is tied to the Kurdish Supreme Committee; it is armed militia operating in NE part of Syria and has liberated territory from the ISIS terrorists. Turkish President Erdogan fears the YPG might link up with the Kurdish groups in Turkey. He does not want them included in the Geneva talks for fear that it would increase their status and thereby enhance the stature of the Kurds in Turkey, particularly the PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party).
