Perhaps more telling than what President Trump did say is what he left out of his speech. He did not comment on the several disputed reports of U.S. troops withdrawing from bases in Iraq, Kuwait or Syria prior to and after the Iranian strike.

Then came the threats against Damascus and the Syrian Army, to back off from entering the eastern shores of the Euphrates.
