CIA Chief John Brennan not optimistic Syria will remain one country

john_brennan001_16x9

The Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, has said that he doesn’t know whether Syria can be “put back together again” because there are so many different groups and interests in the country.

He suggested that a future Syria may be a “confederate structure” with the different factions governing their regions.

He also said that there will not be “tranquility in Syria until you’re also able to address the Iraq issue”, and that there needs to be a clear transition period where it is clear that Assad is “not part of Syria’s future”.
