Are US Troops Deploying on the Jordan-Syrian Border?

Are US Troops Amassing on the Jordan-Syrian Border?

Update: Partially confirmed here.

The U.S. planned “regime change” in Syria and Lebanon long before 9/11.

So the allegation by Boiling Frogs Post (former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds’ site) that the U.S. is amassing troops on the Jordan-Syria border is disturbing.

BFP noted yesterday:

Report: Foreign Troops Begin to Spread Near the Villages of Al-Mafraq

Update 1: Today at 12:00 P.M. we contacted DOD Press Office via two voicemail messages and one e-mail asking for comment(s) on this story. As of 6:00 P.M. EST we have not heard back.

Update 2: Another journalist with a major mainstream media publication was told by his editors that there would be no coverage or follow up on these developments.

SyriaJordanAccording to first-hand accounts and reports provided to Boiling Frogs Post by several sources in Jordan, during the last few hours foreign military groups, estimated at hundreds of individuals, began to spread near the villages of the north-Jordan city of “Al-Mafraq”, which is adjacent to the Jordanian and Syrian border.

According to one Jordanian military officer who asked to remain anonymous, hundreds of soldiers who speak languages ​other than Arabic were seen during the past two days in those areas moving back and forth in military vehicles between the King Hussein Air Base of al-Mafraq (10 km from the Syrian border), and the vicinity of Jordanian villages adjacent to the Syrian border, such as village Albaej (5 km from the border), the area around the dam of Sarhan, the villages of Zubaydiah and al-Nahdah adjacent to the Syrian border.

Another report received from our source in Amman identified an additional US-NATO Command Center in “al-Houshah,’ a village near Mafraq.

Our Iraqi journalist source in London provided us with the following related information:

“Some of the US forces that left the Ain al-Assad Air base in Iraq last Thursday, did not come back to the USA or its base in Germany, but were transferred to Jordan during the evening hours.”

The above information was further corroborated by our correspondent and advisor Nizar Nayouf who interviewed an employee in the London-based office of Royal Jordanian Airlines:

“At least one US aircraft carrying military personnel landed in the Prince Hassan Air base located about 100 km to the east of the city of Al-Mafraq.”

Earlier last week, Jordanian news websites disclosed that “Western officials have requested the King to allow establishing an electronic spy station in the north of Jordan (near the Syrian border) in order to access the Syrian army and contact Syrian high-rank officers for convincing them to make a military coup or (at least) rebel against the regime”.

Nizar Nayouf, BFP advisor and correspondent on Syria in London, had the following statement on Al-Mafraq:

The al-Mafraq air base, which now includes Air Force Academy, was a starting point for “conspiratorial activities” by Jordan, The UK and Israel against Syria in the past, particularly in the 1960s. In September 1968, a Syrian commando Major, Salim Hatoom, who fled to Jordan with a number of officers after a failed coup attempt, established a camp from which he started a rebel military against the then left-wing government of Syria under president Nureddin al-Atassi and Salah Jadid. By the end of 1970s and early 1980s, the Syrian Islamic Brotherhood and their military wing “At-Taleeah al-Islamiyyah al-Muqatilah” (the Islamic Militant Vanguard) used the same base for its military struggle against president Hafez a-Assad regime, in which they were being trained by the Jordanian and Israeli intelligence agents, and cars were being bombed before they were sent to the streets of Syrian cities for the killing of innocents and undermining state facilities.”

Mr. Nayouf went on to emphasize the irony of the situation:

I guess history repeats itself but as farce…Last spring, that tens of Syrian soldiers, who fled to Jordan, were transferred to a camp west of the Jordanian city of “Salt”, in which officers from Israeli military intelligence (AMAN) began the investigation with them under the supervision of the Jordanian military intelligence. This was to extract information from them on issues related to the development of the Syrian army, weapons and training, especially after 2006.

We contacted our expert sources on US media and intelligence-military and were told that the US media has been told not to report on this latest development until Tuesday, December 13. Boiling Frogs Post is the first news website to report on these latest developments.

And here is a BFP interview with a Syrian correspondent from yesterday:

    This story is ridiculous. We are to believe Israeli personnel are training Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic organization vowing to destroy Israel? I suggest readers read DEBKA FILE, which can be accessed via internet. It is certainly a more credible source.



    • auriat

      Please get educated and desist from MSM overdosing. It has been openly admitted that it was ISARELI Mossad who first set up Hamas with funding, facilities etc to counter Arafat. Even as the West was funding Arafat and the PA.

    • Robert Berke does not report on Israeli training, but it does confirm the reports of US/NATO troops massing near the Jordanian-Syrian border.

    • David


      It appears you can’t understand English very well. The report is about US/NATO troops not Israeli ones.

  • John Illinois

    Now why in the world would Jordan play ball with the US? Our recent history has shown that playing ball with us is very similar to being in the Navy Nuclear Power program in the 60s; you play ball with Hymie, and sooner or later, he’ll shove the bat up your ass.

    • auriat

      Who has been paying billions to Jordan Monarch for decades, and training to keep the Jordan potentate in power? USA for the benfit of zionists. Every regime in ME has been installed only after Western approval- and yes that includes Assad.

    • dave in houston

      Rickover never screwed me. I spent 6 years in the Navy, 3 1/2 years on the 594. I got a great education thanks to Rickover and his hand-picked instructors.

  • Arie Dotan

    Better later than never. Eliminating Assad, [Hezbolah] supporter is on the one hand
    pay-back for the killing of the Marines in Beirut, and , not less important it impedes Iran (evetually
    with Turkey cooperation) to control the whole Middle East {conquering Jordan, the Emirates and
    eventually Saudi Arabia}. Grat Move by the present US administration. {if actually happen}

  • Tomm

    The muslim brotherhood is muderously anti-semitic. It is hard to believe the Israeli’s wish to see them in power.
    Bechara Rai, Patriarch of the Maronite Christians explained in person to Sarkozy that a brotherhood takeover would lead to a slaughter of Maronites. Sarkozy was ‘suprised and disappointed’ to hear this. He informed the White House which cancelled their meeting with Bechara Rai.
    The Alawites also understand that their lives are forfeit if the brotherhood gains power in Syria. This aspect of Assad’s intransigence is overlooked in media reports.
    Democracy without Individual Rights is merely mob rule.

  • Dale Barclay

    Jordan provided a place to spy on Iraq under Saddam Hussein. Maybe now someone is making it look like NATO or US troops are moving into the area, hoping Syria will launch a pre-emptive attack. I do not want to see another war. The people of Syria will have to decide when to turn against the government in overwhelming numbers. A lot of quiet discontent is rising to the surface. The Israelis are not our friends in everything. They look out for themselves first and foremost. Stating that we did not know about underground nuclear facilities in Middle Eastern countries is a flat out lie. Remember the shuttle flight carrying the Synthetic Aperature Radar system for its first test? NASA released the scan showing the landscape of Northern Africa under the Sahara Desert with the dried up riverbeds and other features. You can bet the military had it scan every hostile nation while in orbit. Just like we spy on British communications and they spy on us. That way their leaders can proudly say they do not spy on their own citizens.

    Let’s get it over with b4 Tehran has nukes smuggled into our cities. Duh!
    Let’s hope the hype is true. I think it’s safe to say that, ” exactly what we’ll get in a few
    years, if we no nothing. Right or wrong, it’s about survival. WAr is not about who’s
    ‘Right. it’s about who’s ‘Left’! Threat of mushroom clouds in US/European cities is
    where we’re headed. It’s totally different than the US/Soviet Cold War. “MAD”
    does not apply with Islamic martyrdom in the air. This is where Ron Paul is out to
    lunch, though he’s great on fiscal FED stuff.

    • sjdude

      @David Peterson: Loonie bin paranoia. If our military protected our borders, nothing would get in. But when they’re deployed everywhere BUT here, all over the planet in remote places, who is protecting you? The TSA? You are a fool to believe you can protect America by aggression against anyone, and more foolish to believe killing other people doesn’t somehow make more enemies. You believe exactly what the PTB wants you to believe. Sheep…

    vote the same jackass in and you will have to kiss your ass goodby. this country will not stand

    This is not as preposterous as it sounds. We need no more “Pearl Harbors” to bring us into a war and need to know what is planned to happen before it happens to us. The Middle East is a hot bed of militants and those who seek the decline of the West to decline faster. The best deterrant to an all out war is to nip it in the early stages. One is coming, and it could easily escalate to a major event even if fought without the hundreds of thousands of troops involved like WW I and WW II.

    RE: Gornish remark concerning Debka File – they are now confirming this story:

  • Phil Hoff

    How can this be doubted? It is perfectly consistent with what Obama has done elsewhere. He invades and/or supports uprisings wherever there is a chance that the Muslim brotherhood will take over (think Egypt and Libya for two high-profile examples). Syria fits this profile. And his snubbing of the Maronites after they warned of the Muslim brotherhood takeover is vintage Obama.


    Something,whatever,must happen in Syria,the Situation in Syria is is like transitting from middle game to end game in a chess game.Whatever plays out the US will have a role,good or bad,to play.
    Does it not make sense to redeploy soldiers leaving Iraq near Syria which happens to be Jordan considering cost of fresh intercontinental mobilizaton?
    We also should note that my enemies’ enemies are my friends.Its all over the news that Russia is taking more interests in Syrian crisis to shift attention from their Third world like power play in Muscow and oppression in Chechnia.It makes sense for the US TO LURK AROUND.
    Applause for Obama.

  • The purpose of this blog is to incite or to embolden the Syrian opposition to overthrow the current regime. The creators of this story would like the opposition supporters to think that they will be supported or backed by western forces to overthrow the current regime. However this is actually a scheme or strategy produced by the Muslim brotherhood to allow them to get their foot in the door.

  • Anon E Mous

    Well, it is a about week after the date where the press was asked to not report the story. This tells me that there is no story there.

  • J Ewing

    First of all, we have great relations with the Kingdom of Jordan. We train their military, provide financial assistance, and have mutual protection pacts with them. It’s not uncommon for a “friendly nation”, especially when troops are already accessible in the general region, to do ad hoc training as a deterrent against possible aggression. I would say that these troops are more than likely in transistion, but have made an extended stop over as a precautionary against any Syrian aggression. The Syrians are, for the most part, without teeth and pose little to no threat in the region. They lack sophistication in tactics, discipline, and modern equipment. History has shown their lack of desire to stand up against even Israeli incursion into sovereign Syrian territory.

    A more likely scenario is that, in an effort to have all troops out of Iraq, the President has ordered troops into friendly countries until they can be extracted. This shows that we’re keeping our word regarding a total withdrawl from Iraq, while postponing the withdrawl (both financially and logistically) from the region. It’s a mere coincendence that they’re “near the Syrian” border. Jordan is small and thin with only a couple of air bases large enough to house the number of troops being discussed. I would venture to say this is the most plausible reason for our troops to be in Jordan. We just couldn’t get them out in a timely organized manner, or there was a fiscal need to delay the withdrawl of these particular troops until after Dec 31, 2011. Just my .02 cents.

      Greatest naive bs i’ve ever heard!

    Everybody is forgeting one detail, we got Obama for president. He is worst than Jimmy Carter. He is full of hot air! You better build a fallout shelter.
