Foreign Secretary Raab is about to take one for the team.

U.S.A. has pulled out of Afghanistan, but some of their people / contractors are still in Syria.

The U.S.A. troop occupation of sovereign Syrian soil in the northeast has been well-known since the Obama administration,
yet the new U.S.A. President Joe Biden claimed in a Wednesday night ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos that there is no U.S.A. military presence in Syria.

Unless Uncle Joe misspoke, he probably means the regular troops have been mostly removed but they still have CIA / contractors in four areas of Syria.
Jihadis of North West Syria / mostly Idleb province. Kurdish North West Syria / Rojava.
Down in the Golan / Daraa area
and at the triangle that covers Syria/Jordan/Iraq / al-Tanf

Plus others on special missions.
