James Jeffrey : “Absolutely. In a nutshell this was a very attractive package. And the issue isn’t with the Kurds, some 15 – 20 plus percent of the population is Kurdish and in some elections, a high percentage of them actually vote for President, formerly Prime Minister, Erdoğan’s party. It’s all about what the Turks see is a terrorist organization, the PKK and the offshoot of that in Syria – the Syrian wing of that, if you will, the YPG – which became, for very good reasons that I agreed with at the time and I agree with today, our ally against ISIS. They were the only people who could fight effectively against ISIS at the time. As part of the deal with us, they agreed not to take any actions against Turkey and they have lived up to that agreement. But they were still seen as a latent threat on Turkey’s border just like Israel sees Hezbollah as a latent threat on its border, even though there’s only been one incident – and it was very recent – since 2006 with Hezbollah on Israel’s border. So, that’s the point I made in my oral testimony that major states in a region neighboring an area where we have forces have their own vote in any conflict and they will look towards their existential concerns. We think they made the wrong assessment. We think they could have eventually had a better relationship with this wing of the PKK. In fact, they had been in negotiations or discussions with them up until 2015 in Ankara. We wanted to see if they could get back to that level, thus we did this joint patrolling with the Turks inside Syria in these YPG areas with the YPG pulling back, they were basically the silent third partner. We had a deal going. In October President Erdoğan of the Turkish government, in a sense, decided ‘We’re not going to go with this anymore. We don’t care anymore about the incentives. We’re want to go in and deal with this problem.’ We’re looking into, of course, why they decided to do that. We think it was a big mistake and as I said earlier, they are not more secure today, we are not more secure today, no one is more secure today because of that action” 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

James Jeffrey : “Absolutely. In a nutshell this was a very attractive package. And the issue isn’t with the Kurds, some 15 – 20 plus percent of the population is Kurdish and in some elections, a high percentage of them actually vote for President, formerly Prime Minister, Erdoğan’s party. It’s all about what the Turks see is a terrorist organization, the PKK and the offshoot of that in Syria – the Syrian wing of that, if you will, the YPG – which became, for very good reasons that I agreed with at the time and I agree with today, our ally against ISIS. They were the only people who could fight effectively against ISIS at the time. As part of the deal with us, they agreed not to take any actions against Turkey and they have lived up to that agreement. But they were still seen as a latent threat on Turkey’s border just like Israel sees Hezbollah as a latent threat on its border, even though there’s only been one incident – and it was very recent – since 2006 with Hezbollah on Israel’s border. So, that’s the point I made in my oral testimony that major states in a region neighboring an area where we have forces have their own vote in any conflict and they will look towards their existential concerns. We think they made the wrong assessment. We think they could have eventually had a better relationship with this wing of the PKK. In fact, they had been in negotiations or discussions with them up until 2015 in Ankara. We wanted to see if they could get back to that level, thus we did this joint patrolling with the Turks inside Syria in these YPG areas with the YPG pulling back, they were basically the silent third partner. We had a deal going. In October President Erdoğan of the Turkish government, in a sense, decided ‘We’re not going to go with this anymore. We don’t care anymore about the incentives. We’re want to go in and deal with this problem.’ We’re looking into, of course, why they decided to do that. We think it was a big mistake and as I said earlier, they are not more secure today, we are not more secure today, no one is more secure today because of that action” 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
