Ignatius: 10,000 Captured ISIS Fighters Could ‘Suddenly Be Free’ Because of Trump’s Syria Decision

‘That means that some of the most dangerous people on the planet, people who want to target Britain, France, the United States, could suddenly be free’

EXCERPT:

IGNATIUS: “Two other important developments I want to mention. First, as the Turks prepare for their invasion across the border in northeastern Syria, Russian and Syrian regime forces further south are said to be moving up toward the Kurdish areas to catch the Kurds in a kind of pincer and reduce the area under their control. And finally, and this is what should frighten all of us the most, there are many thousands, the estimates go as high as 10,000, former ISIS prisoners who have been held in often ramshackle facilities by the Kurds who may be able to escape if the Turkish invasion happens and the Kurds who were guarding them have to flee to go to the front lines to fight the Turks. That means that some of the most dangerous people on the planet, people who want to target Britain, France, the United States, could suddenly be free. I am sorry to say that the United States government after looking at this question for months still has no plan to deal with the possibility that these ISIS fighters could suddenly be at large.”
