Last month, President Trump stated that since ISIS had been destroyed, the U.S. would begin the process of pulling its troops out of Syria.
The decision prompted the resignation of former Defense Secretary James Mattis, who objected to the decision, noting that ISIS has NOT been destroyed.
Wednesday, a suicide bomber detonated a massive blast at a restaurant in the northern Syrian town of Manbij, killing 16 people, including four Americans – two U.S. service members, one civilian worker of the Defense Department and one contractor for the department. Three other U.S. service members were injured in the attack, and ISIS has claimed responsibility for the blast.
Hours after the attack, Vice President Mike Pence spoke at a conference at the State Department and said, “The caliphate has crumbled and [the Islamic State] has been defeated.”
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham urged President Trump to re-think the decision to withdraw from Syria after learning about the suicide bombing on Wednesday, saying he was afraid the decision had just inspired and emboldened the enemy.
