US withdrawal from Syria mired in confusion, senators say after closed briefing | Stars and Stripes

WASHINGTON — Weeks after shocking Pentagon leaders with plans to leave Syria, the Trump administration still has not forged a clear path for how it intends to withdraw U.S. troops from the country, several senators said Thursday.

The senators made the comments following a closed-door briefing on Capitol Hill between members of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Pentagon officials.

“It’s clear that the administration has no real plan,” said Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., a veteran combat Army pilot. “And the military is being left in a very difficult situation to try to carry out, execute the president’s orders when there’s no real either timeline-based or milestone-based” path forward.
