You do not know this

And if you did, you didn’t hear about it here:

The CIA and U.S. special operations forces have launched a secret campaign to hunt terrorism suspects in Syria as part of a targeted killing program that is run separately from the broader U.S. military offensive against the Islamic State, U.S. officials said.

The CIA and the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command are both flying armed drones over Syria in a collaboration responsible for several recent strikes against senior Islamic State operatives, the officials said.

Remember: this is a secret campaign, so you know nothing about it.

It is, however, enough to make you wonder if Hillary Clinton rewrote the classification rules.
