National Security Advisor John Bolton appeared to contradict the White House Sunday when he said the U.S. withdrawal from Syria would not be immediate, but the Pentagon announced Thursday that without receiving any new direction, it’s moving forward with the mission.

“Timetables or the timing of the withdrawal occurs as a result of the fulfillment of the conditions and the establishment of the circumstances that we want to see,” Bolton said Sunday, which struck a different tone than the Dec. 19 announcement White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders made, in which she said the U.S. had already begun pulling American troops.
