What just happened in a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee…
There have been numerous news reports over the last week — including several posts here at Western Journalism — strongly indicating that the Obama administration does not have a consistent, coherent policy for combating the Islamic State. What just happened in a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee will only serve to reinforce that perception of confusion within the ranks of Obama’s top officials.
Fox News reports that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs — America’s top military leader — has raised the distinct possibility of U.S. “boots on the ground” in the expanding fight against ISIS in the Middle East.
In testimony before Congress, Gen. Martin Dempsey seemed to contradict — or at the very least to undermine — what the Command-in-Chief, his boss, Barack Obama — has consistently promised.
The top U.S. military leader opened the door Tuesday to U.S. troops on the ground in the fight against the Islamic State, testifying before Congress that he could recommend “U.S. military ground forces” if the international coalition being formed proves ineffective against the terror group.
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey made the statement during testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee. Though President Obama vowed last week that the U.S. would “not get dragged into another ground war in Iraq” and military leaders say ground troops are not needed at the moment, Dempsey said he could change his recommendation if he found circumstances “evolving” in the region.
USA Today reports on Dempsey’s specific statement before the Senate panel:
“To be clear, if we reach the point where I believe our advisers should accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against specific ISIL targets, I will recommend that to the president,” said Dempsey.
As Fox News reports, many military leaders as well as lawmakers have expressed concern about the president’s recent speech in which he essentially ruled out the deployment of U.S. war fighters in combat roles against ISIS. Gen. Dempsey’s testimony underscored that divide:
The statement comes as the administration faces a deep divide in Congress that muddies traditional partisan lines over the possibility of ground forces being introduced. Many Democrats and Republicans oppose U.S. combat troops entering the fight. But some Republican lawmakers have criticized the president for appearing to rule out that option.
“ISIS is an army,” Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., top Republican on the committee, said Tuesday. “It will take an army to beat an army.”

[Editor’s Note: This does not necessarily entail the beliefs, thoughts, or theories of the local Act chapters or the National Act office…they are my beliefs, thoughts and/or theories. The big problem/evidence that Barack Hussein Islama Obama that he is an anti-American Muslim, is that he helped the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) create the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria army…by funding the other MB terrorist groups, Hamas and Al Qaeda, giving Iraqi army tanks, Humvees, weapons, ammunition and other anti-personnel/anti-vehicle devices, as well as pulling our troops out when it was still very unstable…it was something that the MB wanted and they, and Obama, knew that the Iraqi army would not succeed…Iraq is the place where, according to Islamic prophecies, place their 12 th Imam, or the mahdi.
This is why Obama doesn’t want American troops in Iraq, because the ISIS army will be destroyed, and that will mess up the MB’s plans for world domination, as well as put Obama in a bad place with allah, his god, because he would be having Muslims killed, and allah satan allah don’t like that, in which he commanded that no Muslim can kill another Muslim. Why do Muslims kill Muslims now? you might ask…well, it because the Muslims do not agree on a few denomination/sect things (I.E. the Sunni, Shi’ite, Sufi and Wahhabi)…thus, in their interpretations each faction does not follow what Mohammed mandated to them, that would make, in their interpretations, the other factions as apostates and thus, enemies, so that makes it ok for them to kill fellow Muslims…it is like the Catholics and the Protestants in Ireland…they both strive to serve God, but because there is a difference in interpretations of Scripture, they kill each other…so Obama doesn’t want to upset allah because Obama is trying to ascertain the title of the mahdi.
This is why he did not have any plans set up if ISIS attacked the US…that is part of the reason for the amnesty bill…so millions of Muslim, largely of the jihadist persuasion, to come to America and fulfill what the MB promised they would do in 1991…take over America with the help of a Trojan horse president.
