Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) thinks folks were hearing things during General Martin Dempseys testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee this morning. When asked if he thought Dempseys comments, that a limited American troop presence could be required in certain circumstances in the fight against ISIS, meant the general was opening the door to ground troops, Levin looked at reporters as if they were a dog that had just been shown a card trick.
No, Levin said. He said theyre not needed.
Levin was pressed on Dempseys comments, in which the general said that a specific mission, such as the retaking of Mosul, could be complex enough to require U.S. troops.
Every military leaders gonna say if theres a change in circumstances hes going to be open to a different recommendation, Levin said. That doesnt mean hes suggested they may be needed.
I think if the media reads this whole discussion here this morning as somehow or other that General Dempsey is suggesting that ground forces may be needed, I think youre taking what he said in a way that he did not say and did not intend.

The liberal politician also enjoys a pie hole record reboot every 24 hours. They can say the complete opposite statement of the previous day and it’s like they get to be reborn over, and over, and over, and over..........(Pee-Wee Herman reference)
Dempsey told the truth, your ears aren’t lying to you, and Levin lies.
I’ve heard ISIS is the greatest muzzie fighting force on earth. Ok if that’s true, then it is only a matter of time before they chew thru everyone else and finally meet the Marine. Hope not, we’ve had enough of these dogs and have nothing to prove to anyone.
This whole thing is such a mess I can’t keep up with it.
The only thing I do know for sure is that Obama will maximize damage to America as much as he possibly can and minimize damage to ISIS as much as he possibly can..
Carrying the administration’s water.
Unfortunately, there’s a hole in the bucket, dear Carl, dear Carl.
oh yes he did and we all heard it.......so stop lying you weasel.
Well Sen. Levin, Gen Dempsey DID open the door to Ground Troops when he SAID:
If we get to that point where it becomes necessary, I WILL MAKE THAT RECOMMENDATION TO THE PRESIDENT!!!!!!
Levin and his ilk are bigger enemies of the U.S. than ISIS.
Yet another TYPICAL: LIB/DIM. Chronic dishonesty must be a qualifier for their office. Typical.
In order to become a high ranking dem you must be able to pass a lie detector test.....
.....with nothing but lies!
The democRats are SLAVES to their own anti-war Bull$&it.
Sit on it Penguin !
Levin is an old leftist asshole and has been all his political life. And he’s from Detroit, where the Truth has been banned by the Democrats as something subversive.
