Washington Post editorial: "Obama’s authorization of Iraq airstrikes isn’t connected to a coherent strategy." "While U.S. airstrikes and drops of supplies may prevent the terrorist forces from massacring the Yazidi sect or toppling the pro-Western regime in Kurdistan, Mr. Obama lacks a plausible plan for addressing the larger threat posed by the Islamic State."
I understand the dilemma the President is in: he ran for office on the pledge to get out of Iraq. But now that ISIS is on the march to Baghdad, the U.S. is dragged (reluctantly) back into the fray. As the WashPost notes, it would be nice if Obama didn't just "check the box" again.
