Defense Secretary Ash Carter in a surprise visit to Baghdad on Monday announced the U.S. would send an additional 560 troops to Iraq to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The new deployment brings the official number of U.S. troops authorized in Iraq to 4,647, but there are hundreds more U.S. troops in Iraq who are not part of that official count. "At every step in this campaign, we have generated and seized additional opportunities to hasten ISIL's lasting defeat," Carter said, using another acronym for ISIS. "These additional U.S. forces will bring unique capabilities to the campaign and provide critical enabler support to Iraqi forces at a key moment in the fight."The additional forces are in preparation to retake Mosul, ISIS's stronghold in Iraq. The troops will provide support for Iraqi forces at a "strategic airfield" near the town of Qayyarah, according to the Pentagon. "The additional troops will provide a range of support for Iraqi Security Forces, including infrastructure and logistical capabilities at the airfield near Qayyarah," a Pentagon statement said. The Iraq regeime change of taking Saddam out of power continues to show America and the world that it was the worst decision possibly made in US military history. Bush and Obama are both equally to blame for this mess, because Bush got us into this dirty war in the first place and Obama continues the Bush war in the middle eastern nation. Also America where was congress notified on sending more troops into Iraq today? More proof that Obama is no different than Bush for when it comes to sending our troops on foreign soil Obama breaks Constitutional war law. So get ready for more American brothers and sisters getting killed in the never ending war of Iraq that Obama promised all Americans he would end. Once again another lie from Americas worst president ever.
