US does not want to see Syrian regime 'collapse': CIA

A photo taken on March 4, 2015 shows a banner bearing a portrait of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a street in the city of DamascusCIA Director John Brennan said the United States does not want to see a chaotic collapse of the Syrian regime as it could open the way to Islamist extremists taking power. The spy agency chief said Washington had reason to worry about who might replace President Bashar al-Assad if his government fell, given the rise of the Islamic State group and other jihadists in Syria. Speaking at an event at the Council on Foreign Relations, he said that “extremist elements” including the IS group and Al-Qaeda veterans are “ascendant right now” in some parts of Syria.
