Al-Rai al-Aam: US source says looking at the military takeover scenario for Syria

From our Daily Briefing today:

“The reasons why Ford is still in Syria are summarized by sources at the White House as follows: “We are currently looking into the post-Al-Assad phase. And like we did in Egypt when we carried out communication calls with the prominent army commanders who secured a safe transfer [of power], we are currently looking into ways of securing a similar transfer in Syria.” The sources added that, in dealing with countries in general, the USA adopts four methods. “The first and most solid method is the army to army relationship where the American defense institution communicates and coordinates with the army of the other country such as our relations with Israel, Egypt, Iraq and other countries.”
