Here they are: Ansar Bait al-Maqdis. The last line below actually reverses cause and effect, because the MSM is not keen to admit that Morsi was enthusiastically amassing large MB forces in the Sinai, which is why Israel told Sisi to get rid of him, without even asking the Pindos first – RB
Pentagon wants drones to replace troops in Sinai
AFP, Apr 12 2016
FASCHINGSTEIN – The Pentagon wants to cut the number of Pindo troops in the Sinai because of the growing threat from ISIS, said a boxtop on Tuesday. About 700 Pindo troops participate in the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) mission. In recent months, attacks from ISIS have put forces on a state of constant high alert. In Sep 2015, a roadside bomb injured six troops including four Pindos. Pentagon spox J Davis said the Pentagon remains “fully committed” to the MFO mission, but wants to use drones and other high-tech tools to assume some of the riskier work. The spox said:
I don’t think anyone is talking about a wholesale withdrawal, I think we are just going to look at the number of people we have there, and see if there are functions that can be automated.
Ashtray Carter and other Pindo boxtops have begun formal conversations with Israel and Egypt. They are also considering moving troops into a camp in the southern Sinai, far from their current base of El Gorah near the Gaza border. Jihadis have long used Sinai as a base, and launched an insurgency after the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi in 2013.
