Obama’s ISIS war czar visits Kurdish enclave in N. Syria

The US special envoy to the coalition against ISIS visited northern Syria over the weekend to confer with Kurdish political and military leaders on ways of ramping up the campaign against the terrorist organization. Brett McGurk spent two days in the Kurdish enclave of Rojava, including the town of Kobane on the Turkey-Syria border, a State Department official said Sunday.   
It marked the first known trip by a senior Obama administration official to the war-torn country since the American ambassador left Damascus following the start of the uprising against Syrian President Assad.
