Obama Sends 450 More Troops to Iraq

President Obama announced Wednesday he has authorized the deployment of 450 more U.S. military advisors to Iraq to help the beleaguered country retake Ramadi from ISIS. According to the New York Times, the plan will include stationing troops at the Al Taqqadum base in Anbar province to train Iraqi soldiers. They will join roughly 3,000 American trainers and advisors already in Iraq. The change may mean that the U.S.’s previous goal of liberating Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, might not happen until 2016.
