Worthy Christian News » American Trained Iraqi Divisions Dissolved, says Gen. Dempsey

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– Roughly 60,000 American trained Iraqi troops threw down their "arms, and in some cases" colluded with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told a Senate committee.

"Two divisions, and part of two, and one national police organization did, in fact, throw down their arms, and in some cases collude with, in some cases simply desert, in northern Iraq," Gen. Martin E. Dempsey said.

"You can look back at some of our intelligence reports," the general told lawmakers. "They did that because they had simply lost faith that the central government in Iraq was dealing with the entire population in a fair, equitable way that provided hope for all of them."

“There are some things we need to know about the fabric about what’s left of Iraqi security forces,” said Gen. Dempsey said, noting that the Pentagon, at this point, does not know for certain how many of Iraq’s military assets and weapons have fallen into the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) — the Sunni extremist group that has seized cities and towns across northern Iraq. — Source
