Days after Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis resigns, Brett McGurk, the top diplomat leading the fight against ISIS, turns in his resignation letter, saying he cannot carry out Trump’s policy of withdrawing from Syria. https://t.co/1IDWJrQebB— Rukmini Callimachi (@rcallimachi) December 22, 2018 As an American Citizen directly impacted by @brett_mcgurk’s work as a diplomat, I thank him deeply for his years of dedicated service. Without his relentless efforts @YeganehSalehi and I would not be here. That’s a fact. https://t.co/Ba0d9M8WVJ— Jason Rezaian (@jrezaian) December 22, 2018 As predicted. Brett McGurk has been working for Bush 43, Obama and Trump on Iraq and then ISIS – an incredible feat of competence and political survival. That he is leaving over the Syria decision provides the perfect echo of Mattis’s decision. https://t.co/VF4tPfFATX— Daniel Benjamin (@Benjamin05055) December 22, 2018 Special Presidential Envoy for the Global @Coalition to Defeat ISIS @Brett_McGurk provides an update on the campaign to defeat ISIS. pic.twitter.com/pqe2nWO7zx— Department of State (@StateDept) December 11, 2018 Share this:EmailPrintTwitterFacebookTumblrLinkedInPinterestReddit
