Obama: U.S. Will Not Lead Fight Against Islamic State

Monday, September 8, 2014 | Tag Cloud Tags: , ,

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- President Obama said that while the Islamic State can't be defeated without boots on the ground, those boots will not be members of the American military, the Washington Times reported.

Mr. Obama said in an interview that aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he planned to address the nation Wednesday night to inform the American people on the nature of the threat from the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, and his strategy for dealing with it.

"This is not going to be an announcement about U.S. ground troops," he said. "What this is is similar to the kind of counterterrorism campaigns that we've been engaging in consistently."

"We've got to have a more sustainable strategy, which mean the boots on the ground have to be Iraqi, and in Syria the boots on the ground have to be Syrian," he said. -- Source
