The Khashoggi Affair is Complicating Trump's Syria Policy
U.S. and Turkish forces trained throughout October to begin joint patrols near the town of Manbij, in northern Syria. Army Gen. Joseph Votel, commander of U.S. Central Command, said on October 21 that the patrols would begin soon. The next day General Votel arrived in Tanf, the U.S. base in the desolate area of southern Syria near Jordan and Iraq, where he stressed the importance of the base’s role in combating the Islamic State. The visit and the comments about Manbij are symbolic of the U.S. posture in Syria in general, as Washington remains committed to fighting the Islamic State (ISIS) but mission creep and its goals have led it to confront Iran and also try to deal with Turkish concerns.
