Obama reiterates no combat troops in Syria or Iraq


With the Senate approving the arming of “moderate” rebels in Syria with a vote of 78 – 22, President Obama just finished a brief address to the nation on what comes next. The main takeaway from the speech was the president’s assurance that there will be no U.S. combat ground troops. We. Shall. See.

President Obama: no ground troops will be committed against #ISIS. Today Congress approved funding Syrian rebels. http://t.co/h7nz44iVJH

#Obama – U.S. troops will not fight on the ground in Syria or Iraq. American soldiers role is to advise and assist only.

This is the right time to remind everyone Obama is relying on Bush's AUMF's for his operations instead of getting his own.
