The United States military has secretly sent a task force of more than 150 planners and other specialists to Jordan to help the armed forces there handle a flood of Syrian refugees, prepare for the possibility that Syria will lose control of its chemical weapons and be positioned should the turmoil in Syria expand into a wider conflict.
The task force, which has been led by a senior American officer, is based at a Jordanian military training center built into an old rock quarry north of Amman. It is now largely focused on helping Jordanians handle the estimated 180,000 Syrian refugees who have crossed the border and are severely straining the countrys resources.
American officials familiar with the operation said the mission also includes drawing up plans to try to insulate Jordan, an important American ally in the region, from the upheaval in Syria and to avoid the kind of clashes now occurring along the border of Syria and Turkey.

You right wing nuts can rest assured that the Royal Idiot and I know exactly what we are doing ... we have things completely under control ... our troops are completely safe ... we would never become involved in another quagmire ... and the Muzzies we protect will appreciate our efforts this time!
“The United States military has secretly...”
Not a ‘secret’ any longer?
Look for a black flag event in Jordan that will give Obama cover to support the “Jordanian Democracy Movement”, AKA the Muslim Brotherhood.
Meanwhile libs are calling Romney a warmonger.
Why do we PAY to our enemies?
More American targets for our muslim “brothers-in-arms” to shoot in the back.
A ROCK QUARRY????, They are based in a hole in the ground?????
Talk about fish in a barrel... Who the h3!! thought this basing scheme up ???
Poor little Administration. So eager to brag to the whole world about what foreign policy geniuses they are that they forget it’s supposed to be a surprise. :)
Hussein and the 'Beast positioning the troops (BTW which they hate) for their little "October Surprise" - the start of Armageddon.
NY Times, our enemies best friend.
To read the headline, the military acted on it's own without orders and Zero and Clintoon have nothing to do with this.
My Lord, the media are so in the tank for Zero and the Rats to already be constructing the disconnect for the White Hut regime when this blows up in America's face.
According to reports we are sending troops to the Jordon border to protect the border with Syria.
We don’t even protect our own borders and we are sending military there?
OWS to erupt in orgy of protests in 3...2...1...0.....-100...-1000
because even though they OUR enemies, they're NOT obama's enemies!
Well I’ve always said that if Obama thought he was going to lose the election, something really bad would happen just in time, to well, cancel elections.
The NYT is given more info than Jay Carney is from this admin.
Sure looks like the chunky chick is buying her clothers off the same rack as Yasser used. Tribes have patterns and I’m guessing her pattern is a dead giveaway for the Wheretheflockarewe’s?
