Bolton: U.S.' Withdrawal From Syria Will Happen Under One Condition

Bolton: U.S.' Withdrawal From Syria Will Happen Under One Condition
On Sunday, White House national security advisor John Bolton made it clear the United States' withdrawal from Syria is conditional. America needs to know Turkey will not target the U.S.’s Kurdish allies once our troops are removed, the Wall Street Journal reported.

President Trump’s order to withdraw U.S. troops is a “cause-and-effect mission” that requires certain assurances from various players in the region before it can be executed, said Mr. Bolton, the first administration official to outline the conditions for withdrawal.
His comments marked the first public acknowledgment from the White House that the safety of Kurdish allies is being considered as part of its pending withdrawal plan, but it also indicates that a quick withdrawal was unlikely given challenging regional dynamics.
It's hard to know exactly what the time table looks like though.

The testimony came under highly unusual circumstances where the agent appeared on the stand under a light disguise and using a pseudonym, and the courtroom was cleared except for attorneys, jury members, and essential court members. In that testimony, the agent said he did not have advance knowledge of the attack, and was surprised when the shooting began.”

This undercover agent’s story defies belief. He claims that when he told jihadi Ibrahim Simpson to “tear up Texas,” that he was only saying what a mujahid, a warrior of jihad, would say, and that he wasn’t encouraging Simpson to “tear up Texas” himself.
