"I imagine the fact that we're now in a situation where we're sort of implicitly on the same side as the Assad regime might factor in here," said Benjamin Friedman, a research fellow in defense and homeland security studies at the libertarian Cato Institute. "The administration remains, to me, on a couple sides of the Syrian civil war. We're not bombing Assad, but we are helping the rebels. We're going after him even as we're going after ISIS. So, arguably, we're on one-and-a-half sides of the Syrian civil war."
