Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan said on Friday he was not optimistic about the future of Syria.
“I don’t know whether or not Syria can be put back together again. Whether it’s going to be some type pf confederate structure where the various confessional groups will have the lead in governing their portions of the country,” Brennan told the annual Aspen Security Forum. He added that the U.S. don’t want implosion of the Syrian government institutions but a clear political path for Bashar al-Assad’s departure from power. “Until that happens, Syrians will continue to die”, Brennan said.
