(Iraq News)- President Donald Trump has given the military the authority to reset a confusing system of troop limits in Iraq and Syria that critics said allowed the White House to micro-manage battlefield decisions and ultimately obscured the real number of U.S.

forces.

The Pentagon, which confirmed the move on Wednesday, said no change has yet been made to U.S.

troop limits.
