Matthew RJ Brodsky joins Senior Washington Correspondent Dan Raviv and Director of the Middle East Political Information Network Eric Mandel on i24News "ClearCut+" with Michelle Makori to discuss why Trump's decision to withdraw American troops from Syria is not in U.S. strategic interests. On the contrary, it will benefit America's adversaries and likely lead to a resurgence in ISIS. Moreover, it needlessly sacrifices U.S. leverage with Turkey in exchange for nothing, while putting Israel in a difficult spot and selling out America's Kurdish allies. It will work out to the benefit of Erdogan of Turkey, Iran, and Russia.
