American forces will not have a combat mission — we will not get dragged into another ground war in Iraq. But they are needed to support Iraqi and Kurdish forces with training, intelligence and equipment. We will also support Iraq's efforts to stand up National Guard Units to help Sunni communities secure their own freedom from ISIL control.Which would seem to contradict his one paragraph earlier statement;
I have made it clear that we will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are. That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency: if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.Unless you're in Iraq and the Iraqis who oppose you aren't up to the job--as they haven't been up to this point--of killing you. Wonder if ISIL has noticed that.
