Graham 'Encouraged' By Pentagon's Plan To Deal With Syrian Chaos

US military leaders are preparing a plan in the fallout of President Donald Trump's about-face in Syria.

Trump recently and abruptly ordered the withdrawal of US troops from Kurdish-held northeastern Syria.

According to Reuters, the goal is to keep Islamic State fighters from regaining a foothold in Syria.

At the same time, it's to keep Syrian oil from falling into the hands of Iran or the militant group.

Sen.

Lindsey Graham (R-SC) received a briefing from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Thursday.

Sen.

Graham told reporters he was 'encouraged' and that the plan 'may work.'

There’s a plan coming together...that may give us what we need to prevent ISIS from coming back, Iran taking the oil, ISIS from taking the oil.

Senator Lindsey Graham
