The Debate: Latest developments in Syria – with Jim W. Dean

The Syrian war continues … but in a different direction now

by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor    … with Press TV,  Tehran

In this edition of The Debate, Press TV has conducted an interview with Jim W. Dean, a managing editor at VT from Atlanta, and Bob Ayers, a former US intelligence officer from Somerset, to talk about latest developments in Syria.


[ Editor’s Note: Bob Ayers was never a US intelligence officer that we could find any substantiation on. He worked in cyber security at DIA with a large number of others. Such people have never been classified as Intel officers, simply because they are not.

The DIA is one of the smaller budget orgs within US Intel, and has no human intelligence in the Mid East. Intelligence officers deal with human intelligence, have been in the field and have personal networks of sources. There are not large numbers of them, as compared to “analysts”, of which there is an army, which is needed for the huge amount of intercept data that is constantly flowing in.

Ayers is also a supporter of Israel, and that puts people on the suspect list immediately. There were no fireworks in this show, as the topic did not provide any. Our trips to Syria and working with the government are getting us on Syrian-topic shows, as we have human intelligence on the ground there.

Our input is based on both open source Intel analysis, which others certainly have access to, but also our people on the ground which gives us our edge on the competition… JD ]
