(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's retired Gen. Mark Hertling & retired Adm. John Kirby about what President Trump is saying about wanting to pull US troops out of Syria. [HERTLING - offers views on how his advisers are trying to explain what a rapid pullout would mean: a lack of understanding, what happened in Iraq in the past.] [KIRBY - offers views on how this is an example of policy after the fact so inter-agency concerns need to be factored in, the lack of consistency on decision-making, how the US leads the anti-ISIS coalition the US put together.]
Cooper, Anderson
