UPDATED 7:31 PM EDT (SEE BOTTOM) -- President Trump was scheduled to go to Camp David this weekend, but that has suddenly been canceled.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser Bolton had a meeting scheduled at the State Department, and that too has suddenly been canceled,
with both men having been summoned to the White House.
This is all unplanned and unexpected.
Something's up. . .
Earlier today, around Noon eastern US time, the US military directly engaged elements of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the US "base" at Al-Tanf.
Conflicting reports say a drone was being operated in the area by the SAA and US aircraft attacked. Not clear if only the Drone was attacked, or both the Drone and nearby troops.
Not certain if this is a big enough deal to alter a Presidential schedule . . . but it would involve both the Secretary of State and the National Security Adviser.
Still efforting more info . . .
ISIS BIG SHOT CAPTURED
U.S. and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reportedly captured the official spokesman of the Islamic State (ISIS) Abul-Hasan Al-Muhajir in a special operation in Deir ez-Zor governorate. The prisoner has allegedly been taken to Erbil. This too might involve both SoS and the NSA.
