The administration recently announced its plans to withdraw American troops from Syria. I have serious concerns about this decision. At the very least, Congress and the American people deserve to see a plan that ensures the destruction of ISIS, reiterates our commitment to our Syrian Kurdish allies, checks Iranian interests in Syria, and prevents further threats against our ally Israel.
This week, Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and I introduced a bipartisan measure that requires the administration to present that plan. It's vitally important a comprehensive strategy is made public because a hasty withdrawal of American troops from Syria could create a power vacuum in the region that ends up bolstering terrorist groups and rogue nations.
