“On November 7, President Biden spoke of the ‘truly sacred obligation’ Americans have to take care of our troops. He’s right about that obligation, but his policy in Iraq and Syria is violating his most sacred duty as their commander in chief: to give his troops a clear, attainable mission and not to leave them as sitting ducks. There’s no other way to describe the role the 900 U.S. troops in Syria are playing, for example.” (11/10/23)
