(CNN) -- The White House has made a decision over whether to withdraw from Syria, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said Wednesday in a breakfast with reporters. He would not say what the decision was nor what the timeline is for an announcement. He said the decision was made Tuesday and that a statement will be coming. President Donald Trump surprised military leaders last week when he said the US would "be coming out of Syria like very soon," just hours after the Pentagon highlighted the need for US troops to remain in the country for the immediate future.
