A Turning Point in Syria
In northern Syria, there is killing and chaos. In Washington, there is criticism and concern over President Trump’s latest big move on the world stage.

On Sunday, Trump ordered the withdrawal of the 1,000 remaining U.S. troops from the region, as a Turkish air barrage hammered at the Kurdish forces the U.S. has long counted on to fight Islamic State militants. Now the Kurds say they’ve been forced to turn to the Russia-backed Syrian government to stave off Turkey’s attack.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Islamic State family members have escaped from a detention camp managed by the Kurds now battling Turkey. The U.S. has moved a small number of militants to facilities elsewhere, but thousands stand to walk free amid the chaos, and Turkey has shown little inclination in the past to inhibit them.

As former Trump administration Defense Secretary James N. Mattis put it: “ISIS will resurge. It’s absolutely a given that they will come back.”
