I agree he surely should have been briefed and known but in this administration who knows. 

Yahoo confirms he WAS briefed. Pence had to put out clarify remarks this evening given what a colossal fuster cluck his comments turned out to be:

Before Pence delivered that assessment, he had been briefed on the deadly bomb attack, for which ISIS quickly claimed responsibility, in the northern city of Manbij. Hours after his speech, the vice president issued a statement about the bombing that stopped short of an outright declaration of victory.

<...>

By claiming to have “crushed the ISIS caliphate” — the quasi-state covering parts of Iraq and Syria that the group controlled for several years — Pence emphasized the part of the allied effort that has been successful, without mentioning that the group still exists as an underground army of terrorists, capable of pulling off deadly attacks.

So much for giving Pence benefit of the doubt.

Here in the U.S. we do not have a Sec of Defense or Chief of Staff, the National Security Director has mixed messages about Syria, and there is a partial Government shutdown. We don't seem to have a clear direction for U.S. policy regarding Syria. 

Meanwhile Russia seems to be imposing it's authority in Syria.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Wednesday that Israel should stop carrying out what Moscow called arbitrary air strikes on Syria, days after the Israeli air force targeted what Israel said were Iranian forces there.
