(If you read Pepe Escobar et al, you would think that Washington's top 
priority was pumping out lurid stories of Baathist atrocities to fan the 
flames of war in order to prepare for "regime change". It does not 
matter that this is pure bullshit.)

The U.S. State Department plans to cut its entire $500,000 in annual 
funding next year to an organization dedicated to sneaking into 
abandoned Syrian military bases, prisons, and government facilities to 
collect documents and other evidence linking Syrian President Bashar 
al-Assad's regime and its proxies to war crimes and other mass 
atrocities during the country's brutal civil war, according to the 
recipient of the assistance and a senior U.S. official.
