What’s next in the campaign against ISIS? The Obama administration really wants to tell all.
The Obama administration is preparing to intensify its military operations against ISIS in both Iraq and Syria ahead of ground operations aimed at destroying the group’s self-proclaimed Caliphate.
Dozens more special operations advisers could be deployed to help Syrian rebels prepare for major ground assaults including against the terrorist’s de facto capital of Raqqa.
Meanwhile U.S. Army Apache attack helicopters, already deployed in Iraq to help defend American assets there, could be authorized to carry out offensive strikes against ISIS targets.
The information was revealed to the New York Times by five Defense Department and military officials who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The new special forces soldiers would join around 50 already advising Syrian rebels fighting the Islamic State, including Kurdish peshmerga forces.
They would be separate to the 200-strong ‘expeditionary targeting force’ which includes Delta Force operatives and is designed to carry out raids on high profile targets in Iraq.
Military operations in Syria, including a sustained bombing campaign, are believed to be building up to an attack on Raqqa, in the country’s north.
The city has become a base of operations for ISIS and is believed to be home to several of its most prominent figures, including the masked executioner Jihadi John until he was killed in a drone strike last November.
This brings us to verse 84 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by President Barack Hussein Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)
I tell ISIS what I’ll do
I micromanage, right on cue.
I gave them their weapons too.
My “loose lips sinks ships”, the way to go.
