New US covert operations helping Sunni Muslim radicals

This is a news report from Yahoo on an article by Sy Hersh in New Yorker magazine. We are apparently doing exactly what the article suggests (I read the New Yorker piece), which is funding certain elements of Sunni radicalism to counter the rise of the Shia, specifically in Syria. Meanwhile, more American troops are dying from Sunni radicalism than from groups backed by Iran (though both are killing us in Iraq), yet we are after Iran and disregard the Sunni radicals. What a mess!! It is an interesting world that President Bush’s decisions have wrought.
