Obama Tells Iraq’s Leaders To ‘Solve Their Own Problems’
Obama doesn’t like to clean up the messes he makes.
Check it out:
President Obama on Friday urged Iraq’s leaders to “solve their problems” as they face Al Qaeda-inspired fighters overrunning cities and marching toward Baghdad, but said he was reviewing possible U.S. military responses.
The president reiterated that the U.S. would “not be sending U.S. troops back into combat.” But he said he’s asked his security team for options and is reviewing them.
Republican lawmakers and military analysts are urging the administration to get more involved — President Obama appeared to open the door Thursday to the possibility of air strikes, but no decision has been made. The president plans to make brief remarks on the situation in Iraq shortly before noon on the South Lawn.
