Ret. General: U.S. Military Needs Strategy from Obama for Iraq

Posted August 15, 2014 at 3:07pm

Fox News reports that “the U.S. military ‘desperately’ needs a strategy from President Obama to isolate the Islamic State in Iraq, retired four-star Gen. Jack Keane said on Fox News’ ‘America’s Newsroom’ Friday.  

“‘They’re very frustrated, to be quite frank about it,’ Keane said. ‘They can’t speak publicly about it. They want a strategy. They know they can deal with this force.'”  

“Obama reiterated Thursday that he would not commit “combat troops on the ground,” but did green-light additional airstrikes to protect American personnel and facilities.”
