US Shifting Anti-ISIS Strategy to 'Gather Battlefield Momentum,' DoD Secretary Ash Carter Says

US Shifting Anti-ISIS Strategy to 'Gather Battlefield Momentum,' DoD Secretary Ash Carter SaysU.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter has laid out changes to the Obama administration’s anti-ISIS strategy that will lead to more airstrikes and special operations raids against ISIS, saying they will help “gather battlefield momentum.” They also open the door for U.S special operations forces to conduct raids inside Iraq on their own. The changes are intended to build on the Obama administration’s strategy to fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria where the tactical fight against the terror group has stalemated. “The changes we’re pursuing can be described by what I call the ‘three R’s’: Raqqa, Ramadi, and Raids,” Carter said in testimony today before the Senate Armed Services Committee.
