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 during his presidency.
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.'

Yeah, so much that they won’t even mention it.
LOL! You think an Obama super-bundler is going to care a bit about this hypocrisy?

This is the audacity of power. Never tell the truth. Lie whenever its possible and do whatever it is necessary to insure that YOUR power is not weakened.
Political pressure is forcing him to appear to be doing something. I'm sure he's dragging his feet and doing as little as possible. Once we're past the midterm elections, he can resume his normal stance of "who cares".
If they ARE... why should that be public information?
Because this WH loves leaks.
They are prepared to talk about it ONLY if it is successful... and spin like crazy if it fails!
Oh good god no more dead troops please!
A lot of us are not surprised at nobama’s not doing anything to combat ISIS.
