There is a concentrated effort by the media to spread disinformation about US troop strength in Iraq. Today Business Insider tells us that, “Less than 20…” troops have been sent to help the Yazidi’s on Mount Sinjar in Iraq.
That means that President Obama is honoring his pledge to prohibit any ‘Boots on the ground in Iraq’ – or nearly so. Right?
Wrong. A month and a half ago Military.com told us that we were sending 300 more troops into Iraq, bringing the alleged total to, “… approximately 750, the Pentagon said.”. Since then more have been dribbling in ‘To protect Americans there. Here’s 130 more from yesterday’s news.
Here is another 300 from a month ago.
That took less than ten minutes to look up.
The cult of Obama in the media is as strong as ever.
Update: Defense One says the US has 1,000 troops in Iraq now.
Meanwhile, even with the hundreds of troops on the ground and fighter pilots in the air, the Obama administration insists there isn’t a combat mission in Iraq.”
