Ambassador Ryan Crocker, former U.S. Ambassador to six Middle East nations including Afghanistan and Syria, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about President Trump preparing to remove troops from Afghanistan and Syria. Ambassador Crocker says it requires more strategic patience in Afghanistan and pulling troops out of the region will breed another 9/11. When asked about President Trump saying the Taliban are tired of fighting and want peace, Corker said, " Taliban are not tired....they have been fighting for eighteen years and will keep on fighting." Ambassador Crocker also addressed President Trump saying we can send troops back to Afghanistan and Syria if there is a resurgence of Al-Qaeda and ISIS, he responded, "It costs more lives having to go back in than just staying put."
