- Sen. Casey posted the following to Facebook: "One day when the diplomatic history is written, people will wonder what happened here and why officials didnt do more to stop it or at least speak out more forcefully to blame Turkey for its behavior: an unprovoked military operation that has killed some 200 civilians, left well over 100,000 people (and counting) newly displaced and homeless because of its military operation
we with our local partners have lost significant leverage and inherited a shrunken, less stable platform to support both our CT efforts and the mission of finding a comprehensive political solution for Syria.
The top American diplomat on the ground in northern Syira, William V. Roebuck, has raised an important question that will haunt our diplomatic history: Would tougher American diplomacy, blunter threats of economic sanctions and increased military patrols have deterred Turkey from attacking?
Roebuck: We wont know because we didnt try.
We didnt try to find a responsible way to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria without severely destabilizing the region. Instead, President Trump abandoned our Kurdish allies for slaughter and opened the door for a possible ISIS resurgence.
We. Didnt. Try." View the Facebook post here. 10/07/19
- Sen. Casey posted the following to Facebook: "Kurdish forces have been a steadfast U.S. ally and President Trump has shamefully betrayed them. Thousands of Kurds died in the fight against ISIS only to be abandoned by President Trump, whose fascination with authoritarian dictators, like Erdogan, seems to control U.S. foreign policy. Turning our back on the Kurdish people in their time of need will make our nation less safe. Potential allies will no longer trust our government. President Trumps decision to pull U.S. troops from Syria also underscores the problematic nature of his continuing involvement in his business, the Trump Organization. Since President Trump has not fully divested from his private business, our nation is left to wonder whether the fact that the Trump Organization has dealings in Turkey impacted his decision."
