(Studio: Jim Sciutto) A CNN "Keeping Them Honest" look at how President Trump is doing things solo without advisers on national security issues introduced. [Yesterday in Ohio, TRUMP - says we will be coming out of Syria very soon.] And how no one knows what he meant about Syria noted. [Many times TRUMP - says i don't want to tell the enemy how i am thinking; the "element of surprise."]

(Studio: Jim Sciutto; West Palm Beach: Jim Acosta) How officials are trying to figure out what Trump meant about Syria policy, how he savaged former President Obama for pulling troops out of Iraq, what the Pentagon is saying discussed.

(Studio: Jim Sciutto) Live discussion held with CNN's retired Gen. Mark Hertling & retired Adm. John Kirby about Trump on policy issues. [KIRBY - offers views on how our allies are reacting to what the president says, on the positions of Russia, Iran & Syrian President Bashir al-Assad & what pulling out of Syria would mean, the possible role of incoming national security adviser John Bolton.] [HERTLING - offers views on what this does to military planning & the reaction of soldiers on the ground to this disconnect about the mission, how these diplomatic signals will cause things to happen elsewhere, how there is more to go in the fight against ISIS.] A tweet from Bolton quoted.
