Kurdish Fighters Discuss Releasing Almost 3,200 ISIS Prisoners

Dec. 20, 2018

BEIRUT, Lebanon — America’s Kurdish allies in Syria are discussing the release of 3,200 Islamic State prisoners, a prominent monitoring group and a Western official of the anti-Islamic State coalition said on Thursday, a day after President Trump ordered the withdrawal of all American troops from the country.

Top officials of the Syrian Democratic Forces, the Kurdish-led and American-supported militia fighting the Islamic State in eastern Syria, met on Wednesday to discuss the option of releasing about 1,100 Islamic State fighters and 2,080 relatives of the group’s members, according to Rami Abdul Rahman, the head of the Syrian Observatory on Human Rights.

1. If we withdraw, they probably will

Who could blame them?

2. That's how I felt when I heard this earlier on MSNBC

Nobody on the panel seemed surprised or pushed back against them. And that included a general who was on the panel.
