The U.S. Army Special Operations soldier killed by a roadside bomb in Syria last week was on a "kill or capture" mission to take out a "known ISIS member", the Pentagon revealed Monday.

"I want to get out. I want to bring our troops home". We do them for, we do them for a lot of reasons. "This operation was part of the Coalition's mission to defeat ISIS, and we remain focused on our mission". Last week, the president had raised eyebrows when he declared: "We'll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon". We were very successful against ISIS. And we'll be making a decision as to what we do in the very near future.

The special USA envoy for the global coalition against Islamic State, Brett McGurk, offered a slightly different assessment at Washington forum earlier on Tuesday, saying: "We are in Syria to fight ISIS".

Trump has previously been deeply critical of his predecessor for forecasting what the US would do militarily in Iraq and Afghanistan, accusing President Obama of revealing the strategy to the enemy by announcing the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
