The Pentagon announced today that some 400 US Army Rangers and Marines have arrived in Syria, preparing for the upcoming battle to liberate Raqqa, the capital of the Islamic State's so-called caliphate. Dan Lamothe, national security reporter and military blogger for the Washington Post, says the plan to use the American flag to organize others who, although they don't get along, are all aligned against ISIS, has been in the works for some time.
