Reports are coming in that up to four U.S. helicopters crossed the Iraq-Syria border and attacked a local Syrian village.  Media reports have been confirmed by the Syrian government, that American paratroopers got out of the helicopters and attacked the village.  Up to 8 people have been reportedly killed.

This unprecedented move is the first time American military forces have attacked Syria.

Is this Bush’s “October Surprise?”
