Kerry to Senate: ‘No Way Possible’ for ISIS Ground War

Defense News reports that “there is ‘no way possible’ for the White House’s proposed Islamic War authorization measure to lead to a third massive US military ground conflict in the Middle East, Secretary of State John Kerry told senators Tuesday.”  

“Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee a White House-crafted authorization of the use of military force (AUMF) would authorize ‘no long-term combat.’ He added the Obama administration is not asking ‘to build up to a new Iraq or Afghanistan.'”  

“‘That’s not what we’re doing,’ he said.”
