Barack Obama has not yet begun to fight. That's for some other guys to do
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.
