Rep. Hastings: “The President’s latest impulsive decision is outright dangerous and appalling. In sanctioning Turkish military action against the American-trained Kurdish forces who fought and died on the front lines against the Islamic State, the President has abandoned our allies in Syria and made an egregious strategic error. This will undoubtedly pave the way for massacre and humanitarian disaster.

Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) released the following statement after the White House announced that American troops would withdraw from Syria’s border with Turkey:

The President’s latest impulsive decision is outright dangerous and appalling. In sanctioning Turkish military action against the American-trained Kurdish forces who fought and died on the front lines against the Islamic State, the President has abandoned our allies in Syria and made an egregious strategic error. This will undoubtedly pave the way for massacre and humanitarian disaster. At every turn, this President undermines America’s legitimacy as a global leader and forsakes the values that our nation stands for.”

Congressman Alcee L. Hastings serves as Vice-Chairman of the House Rules Committee, Chairman of the U.S. Helsinki Commission, and Co-Chairman of the Florida Delegation.
