Russians weren’t bombarding a run-of-the-mill rebel outpost,
according to U.S. officials. Their target was a secret base of
operations for elite American and British forces. In fact, a
contingent of about 20 British special forces had pulled out of the
garrison 24 hours earlier. British officials declined to comment.
military and intelligence officials say the previously unreported
close call for Western forces on June 16, and a subsequent Russian
strike on a site linked to the Central Intelligence Agency, were
part of a campaign by Moscow to pressure the Obama administration
to agree to closer cooperation in the skies over Syria.
