Retired Major Ben Connable talked about President Obama’s decision to send additional troops to Iraq to advise Iraqi and Kurdish forces in their fight against ISIS* militants.

Before the interview with Major Connable began, Ben Hubbard was interviewed via Skype from Iraq about U.S. strategy toward fighting *ISIS, and his New York Times story, “Iraq and U.S. Find Some Potential Sunni Allies Have Already Been Lost.” He also discussed the video released by ISIS militants earlier in the day. The terrorist group claims that the footage shows the beading of an America aid worker in Iraq.

* The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is a militant group that has called itself the Islamic State. close
