This is a damning indictment, not only of Trump's foreign policy, but Trump himself from #Mattis.
Trump "quickly capitulated" in Syria negotiations with Erdoğan

"It wasn’t just Syria, but a series of decisions..If there was some strategic benefit to abandoning the Kurds & doing this, then maybe there would have been a different answer. But this was seemingly very arbitrary”

Behind the scenes of #MattisResignation

"Brett McGurk informed @SecPompeo that he will accelerate his departure due to a strong disagreement with Trump's snap decision to withdraw 2,000 US troops from Syria, effectively abandoning US allies in the region." (h/t @lesleyabravanel)
Trump, angry over Defense Secretary Mattis’ rebuke, has told administration officials that he will force Mattis out by January 1 nyti.ms/2GFpq4z
"When Trump first announced that Mattis was leaving, he praised the DefSec on Twitter ..

Although Trump had already seen the resignation letter when he praised Mattis, he did not understand just how forceful a rejection of his strategy Mattis had issued"
