David Ignatius, Washington Post Columnist, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about his latest article "What the Americans who were killed in Syria were fighting for" and the ramifications of President Trump's decision to pull troops out of Sryia. Ignatius, who less than a year ago was on the same street in Manbij, Syria, where the four American soldiers were killed by an ISIS attack, says it is important to let Americans know all the good those soldiers and other Americans have done in the region not only in the war on terror but helping keep local civilians safe from ISIS terrorists. Ignatius hopes Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has an honest conversation with President Trump about the important role America has in continuing the fight against ISIS and being a force of good in the world. Ignatius believes the mission to destroy ISIS is not finished and removing troops too soon from Syria would repeat the mistake of removing troops prematurely in Iraq and create another vacuum that will be filled by ISIS, Iran and Russia.
