Jamil Jaffer: ‘Pulling Out of Syria Now Is a Catastrophic Mistake of Historic Proportions’

‘It’s a vacuum that ISIS will almost certainly fill’

EXCERPT:

VOGEL: "So you worked on foreign policy both in the Obama and the George W. Bush administration. Are you concerned by what Brett McGurk said and his resignation?"
JAFFER: "Well, look, I mean, the challenge here is the president has been rightfully critical of President Obama’s decision to pull out of Iraq precipitously and yet he is about to make the same mistake. And Brett is right to be critical of the president for making that same mistake. Pulling out of Syria now is catastrophic mistake of historic proportions."
