And yet this kind of stuff works in keeping stuff out of the general narrative. Even if reported, the onus is always on us as individuals to remember it and bring it up, because the papers that reported it will put it down the memory hole.

Like the endless loop of "stuff happening in Syria" -> "US considers sending arms" while they were sending arms the whole time (and according to recent reports paying the rebels salaries). And still people think that Obama kept out of Syria.

Though that loop appears to be coming to an end what with Assad and the Kurds winning the war against IS (and hopefully continuing peace with each other). Remains to be seen what becomes of the Turkish occupied territories and the last non-IS rebel pockets in the west.
