On December 19, President Trump announced his intention to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria.  In this edition of Wilson Center NOW, we discuss the implications for the United States, its allies, and its enemies in the region with Aaron David Miller, Vice President for New Initiatives and Middle East Program Director.



Aaron David Miller, a Vice President and Middle East Program Director at the Wilson Center, is among America’s foremost experts on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and U.S. policy in the Middle East. A former adviser to six secretaries of state (George Schultz to Colin Powell), he helped shape America’s policy in the region for more than two decades. A prolific commentator, Miller is currently a global affairs analyst for CNN. He is the author of five books, including the national bestseller “The Much Too Promised Land: America's Elusive Search for Arab-Israeli Peace,” and most recently, “The End of Greatness: Why America Can't Have (and Doesn't Want) Another Great President.”
