News United States: Ben Rhodes: Trump Has "Reignited The ISIS Threat To The United States"

Ben Rhodes: Trump Has "Reignited The ISIS Threat To The United States"
News source: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/10/23/ben_rhodes_trump_has_reignited_the_isis_threat_to_the_united_states.html

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell brought former Obama deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes to "fact-check" President Trump's statement about the permanent cease-fire in Syria. ANDREA MITCHELL, MSNBC: Ben Rhodes, let's try to fact check that. Jim Jeffrey certainly seems to have more control of the facts than the president. BEN RHODES: Yeah, no, look, look, it's obvious, Andrea, that a significant number of ISIS prisoners were in this area, and a significant number have escaped. But I think it's important to step back and look at the broader context here. Why did ISIS get the foothold there in the first place and what did the Kurds do with us and for us? Assad is a motivating factor for ISIS, he allows them to raise recruits and to build its strength as a terrorist group and an insurgency. Turkey does not have an interest in fighting ISIS. The situation we faced in 2014 is that Turkey was permitting the free flow of people across the border into Syria to fight for ISIS. It was the Kurds who put their lives on the line, 11,000 Kurds lost in the fight against ISIS, with U.S. air support and the U.S. special forces Now the U.S. special forces have been pulled back. Now the Turks have come back in. And let's be very clear about what this, quote-unquote, "safe zone" is. It's a buffer zone in which the Turks are dislodging the Kurds from that area. What's left? Turkey is there. Turkey has not prioritized the fight against ISIS. They've prioritized the fight against the Kurds. Assad has been a magnet for ISIS to attract additional fights and the U.S. is gone. The counter-ISIS operations are no longer taking place with the U.S. and the Kurds. So, what does this all add up to? This adds up to the fact that ISIS has been relieved of all the pressure it was under, a significant number of ISIS fighters have escaped, and right now we no longer have the people there who are keeping a lid on this problem, which is the U.S. special forces working with the Kurds. So in addition to eviscerating U.S. credibility, he's also reignited the ISIS threat to the United States. This is a catastrophic outcome that he's trying to spin. Let's be very clear, his spin is filled with lies. ISIS fighters did escape. He's not getting the U.S. out of this region, he's actually added thousands of U.S. troops to the region in recent weeks and months with a recent deployment to Saudi Arabia. It's trying to spin his way out of fact that he made a decision to allow Turkey to green light this operation that has put American national security at extreme danger.
