Obama to Send Troops to Syria

Obama to Send Troops to SyriaPresident Obama is directing the Pentagon to send special forces into Syria to advise the Syrian opposition in its fight against ISIS, the White House said today. The change will station U.S. special operations forces on the ground for the first time in Syria in its fight against the Islamic State after thousands of airstrikes in the past year produced mixed results, although their mission is expected to be primarily advisory. The change “is consistent with strategy to intensify the battle against ISIS,” a White House senior official told ABC News.
