US commander says he was ’not consulted’ on Syria; warns IS could regroup

Gen. Joseph Votel, the four-star Army commander who heads US Central Command, said Tuesday that he was not consulted by President Trump before the announcement to withdraw all US troops from Syria. Votel disclosed the same during an appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee. Votel warned that the Islamic State could stage a resurgence in Syria once the US withdraws its troops.
