‘Obama, Stop Playing Golf and Deal With Iraq’

By Courtney Coren.

House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers pleaded with President Barack Obama on Monday to quit playing golf and lead the country with a better solution than working with Iran on the crisis in Iraq.


“‘Mr. President, please come back from the golf course,'” Rogers said on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV. “‘We need you. We need a decision now. We need to sit down. We ought to be spending very long days in situation rooms to try to get to a place that really does work for American national security interests.”

Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States is close to beginning talks with Iran over helping Iraq in the fight against the insurgency.

Rogers says the United States should be exhausting other options before turning to Iran for help.

“That would put us at odds with Iran’s position in Syria, and it certainly would put us at odds with a country that we believe has U.S. blood on its hands by supporting and financing operations in Iraq against U.S. soldiers in the past,” the Michigan Republican explained.

President Obama announced on Monday evening that US ground troops ‘equipped for combat’ are being sent to Iraq – just days after claiming that no American soldiers would be deployed to the war-torn country.

In a letter to Congress, the president said American troops will be returning to Iraq only three years after they left and their deployment began on Sunday.

Obama said that their only purpose will be to protect U.S. personnel and the embassy in Baghdad – and not to join in the fierce fighting raging outside the Iraqi capital.

The president did tell Congress, however, that American military personnel in Baghdad will be ‘equipped for combat.’

The president did not give a deadline for the troops exit, only that the 275 soldiers will remain in Iraq for as long as they are needed to protect US interests.

    ‘Speaking on condition of anonymity, a U.S official told the Associated Press that up to 100 special operators would fall under the authority of the State Department, and would not be authorized to engage in combat.’
    So what are the Rules of Engagement? Watch videos?
    Nero fiddle while Rome burned. This man is such a Jackass! But we all know that.

    Playing golf is the only thing Obama is consistent on but how good he is at the game remains to be seen as his scores are always confidential.
