Kurds Say American Forces Are On the Ground in Iraq, Despite Obama Saying Not Combat Troops Would Fight
My money’s on the Kurds being more truthful then President Tee Time:
American Special Forces commandos are on the ground fighting in northern Iraq, according to a published report, just a week after Barack Obama said that wouldn’t happen. And with a second brutal beheading in Syria ,the president may soon have to decide how much more military might to deploy.
Even as he has authorized more than 100 target airstrikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in Iraq, Obama told the American Legion on August 26 that ‘American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq.’
‘I will not allow the United States to be dragged back into another ground war in Iraq,’ he said, adding later that ‘the answer’ to ISIS ‘is not to send in large-scale military deployments that overstretch our military.’
His parsing of words – ‘combat troops’ and ‘large-scale’ – now seem calculated to produce platoon-sized loopholes.
When isn’t Obama parsing his words?
The truth is a foreign language to this guy. It’s like Austrian to him.
But, it isn’t just the Kurds saying there are Americans there. The Daily Beast has a freelance reporter there saying the same thing.
Maybe Obama doesn’t know about it. I mean, it hasn’t been on the news yet.
