In an interview with NBC News last night, President Obama said that the 50 or so new special forces troops he’s sending to Syria don’t actually break his promise of” no boots on the ground” in Syria because we’ve always had special forces on the ground doing this kind of thing. Or something 😛 TAGEND An excerpt 😛 TAGEND

” Keep in intellect that we have operated special ops already and really this is just an extension of what we are continuing to do ,” Obama said in an interview on “NBC Nightly News” in his first public commentaries on the deployment since it was announced on Friday.

” We are not putting U.S. troops on the front line fighting firefights with ISIL ,” Obama said, use another acronym for the Islamic State militant group.” I have been consistent throughout that we are not going to be fighting like we did in Iraq with battalions and occupations. That doesn’t solve the problem .”

Positively Clintonian.

Except, of course, that U.S. soldiers are on the front line fighting ISIS 😛 TAGEND But here’s the best part — President Obama can’t even fool” The Daily Show” with this nonsense 😛 TAGEND
