James Jeffrey said : “Russia and the murderous Assad regime are calling the shots," said Menendez, referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "We don’t even have clarity about whether and where U.S. troops might remain". Jeffrey acknowledged he was "not personally consulted" before Trump announced his decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria. Lawmakers said that demonstrated the "chaotic and ad hoc" nature of Trump's policy in the region. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, pressed Jeffrey on Trump's Oct. 6 phone call with Erdogan, in which the Turkish president told Trump he planned to invade Syria. Trump said then that he would remove American troops stationed on the Turkish-Syria border, which many said gave Erdogan the green light to attack the Kurds. "Erdogan basically said, 'I'm coming in, get out of the way' and America blinked," Romney said. Jeffrey pushed back, saying Trump warned Erdogan not to invade Syria and did not give him a green light to attack the Kurds. He said American forces in Syria were never given a mission to defend the Kurds against an attack from Turkey, which is a NATO ally. He said Erdogan's decision came despite "warning after warning" and "incentive after incentive" from the Trump administration to stave off such a move. Kurdish forces controlled much of northeastern Syria until two weeks ago, when Turkey invaded and began pushing them south. Under the U.S.-brokered cease-fire, the Kurdish fighters agreed to pull back deeper into Syria, and Turkey agreed to stop its assault. If the terms of the cease-fire are ratified by all sides, Trump will lift sanctions he imposed on Turkey earlier this month and Turkey will not advance further into Syria. Jeffrey defended the cease-fire, saying it has limited Turkey's territorial gains in Syria – and the chaos that unleashed. But he conceded that hundreds of Kurdish fighters have died in the two-week-long incursion and that ISIS fighters have taken advantage of the mayhem. He estimated that "dozens" of ISIS fighters – who had been captured by the Kurds – have escaped amid the upheaval created by Turkey's incursion. Turkey's invasion has "scrambled" the situation in Syria, undercut U.S. efforts against ISIS and "brought in the Russians and the Syrian regime forces in a way that is really tragic for everybody involved,” External link

James Jeffrey said : “Russia and the murderous Assad regime are calling the shots," said Menendez, referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "We don’t even have clarity about whether and where U.S. troops might remain". Jeffrey acknowledged he was "not personally consulted" before Trump announced his decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria. Lawmakers said that demonstrated the "chaotic and ad hoc" nature of Trump's policy in the region. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, pressed Jeffrey on Trump's Oct. 6 phone call with Erdogan, in which the Turkish president told Trump he planned to invade Syria. Trump said then that he would remove American troops stationed on the Turkish-Syria border, which many said gave Erdogan the green light to attack the Kurds. "Erdogan basically said, 'I'm coming in, get out of the way' and America blinked," Romney said. Jeffrey pushed back, saying Trump warned Erdogan not to invade Syria and did not give him a green light to attack the Kurds. He said American forces in Syria were never given a mission to defend the Kurds against an attack from Turkey, which is a NATO ally. He said Erdogan's decision came despite "warning after warning" and "incentive after incentive" from the Trump administration to stave off such a move. Kurdish forces controlled much of northeastern Syria until two weeks ago, when Turkey invaded and began pushing them south. Under the U.S.-brokered cease-fire, the Kurdish fighters agreed to pull back deeper into Syria, and Turkey agreed to stop its assault. If the terms of the cease-fire are ratified by all sides, Trump will lift sanctions he imposed on Turkey earlier this month and Turkey will not advance further into Syria. Jeffrey defended the cease-fire, saying it has limited Turkey's territorial gains in Syria – and the chaos that unleashed. But he conceded that hundreds of Kurdish fighters have died in the two-week-long incursion and that ISIS fighters have taken advantage of the mayhem. He estimated that "dozens" of ISIS fighters – who had been captured by the Kurds – have escaped amid the upheaval created by Turkey's incursion. Turkey's invasion has "scrambled" the situation in Syria, undercut U.S. efforts against ISIS and "brought in the Russians and the Syrian regime forces in a way that is really tragic for everybody involved,” External link
