Well, that's not how it's turned out, is it? I remember just a few weeks ago he sent 300 more soldiers to Iraq, promising "no boots on the ground" and no combat role. Now this:
President Barack Obama is sending up to 1,500 more soldiers to Iraq to train Iraqi and Kurdish forces to fight ISIS, in a deployment that would almost double the total number of American troops there to 2,900.
The White House said in a statement that it will also ask Congress for another $5.6 billion to fund the fight against ISIS. The troops will not have a combat role, and will operate from bases outside Baghdad and Erbil.
The president didn't want our troops to stay in Iraq. He didn't negotiate with Maliki at all on the SOFA and used that as an excuse to withdraw, and now we have to risk more Americans just to recover ground that was gained when President Bush first sent our military there.
This man is an idiot. He's a dangerous, arrogant idiot.
