And counting….RCD: Obama Rejected “Best Military Advice” CENTCOM Chief Urged Modest Combat Contingent
As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East.
Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.”
Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey. The White House rejected CENTCOM’s “advise and assist” contingent due to concerns about placing U.S. ground forces in a frontline role.
In a press briefing Thursday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said that the president had rejected Austin’s recommendation because he believes “it is not in the best interest of American national security to send American combat troops in a combat operation to act on the ground in Iraq.”

Back in the Bad Old Days, tyrants bent others to their will with machine guns and death camps. But what fig leaf can modern, touchy-feely, petty tyrants use to make sure other people remain “in compliance?” How about Saving the Planet?

Megyn Kelly Interview of Ward Churchill and Dinesh D’Souza:
A lot of people wonder why Megyn Kelly would bother having a crackpot and has-been like Ward Churchill on her show. It’s simple – and they touch upon this in the video – Churchill represents a toxic strain of anti-American thinking that permeates the left (including our current president.). And unlike the crackpots on the far right who are banished from any positions of influence by conservatives, the crackpots on the left live in universities, Hollywood and the media and do have immense influence over shaping the culture. That’s what makes the Ward Churchill interviews so unsettling.
Steven Crowder, Moderate Islam: A MYTH! (Featuring Dana Loesch):
On Friday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said that President Obama has lied about his reasoning for waiting until after November to take executive action.
“When [President Obama] spoke to Chuck Todd, he prefaced the lie — the idea that it had nothing to do with politics — by saying, ‘Now I’m being honest here,’” Krauthammer said, “which is always a sign — when you hear it from a politician — to reach for your wallet.”
