Transcript for US military begins withdrawing troops from Syria
We move to the breaking news overseas. A new report the U.S. Military has begun withdrawing troops from Syria. Martha Raddatz tracking this developing story. Good morning, Martha. Reporter: Good morning, George. This morning reports of a convoy of ten armored vehicles leaving northeastern Syria and heading into Iraq. A U.S. Official confirming equipment is now being pulled out of Syria but he would provide no information on when this pullout would be complete. It was three weeks ago that president trump in a surprise announcement said the 2,000 American troops in Syria would be leaving and declaring ISIS was all but defeated. U.S. Officials saying the withdrawal would occur within 30 days. That prompted the resignation of defense secretary Jim Mattis. U.S. Officials later walked back that 30-day time line saying it could take several months. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo saying from Cairo a withdrawal does not change the mission of completely dismantling ISIS, how that will work going forward is unclear, but there are fears that Russia and Iran will fill the vacuum the U.S. Leaves behind, George. There are a lot of mixed signals there. Thanks very much.
