Obama: We Don't Have a Strategy for Iraq-Syria War Yet

• http://news.antiwar.com, Jason Ditz

In a speech this afternoon, President Obama talked up the Iraq War in the broadest terms possible, praising the bravery of the pilots launching airstrikes in the country, and again taking credit for saving those "folks on the mountain," presumably referring to the largely mythical Yazidi calamity that was the initial pretext for the conflict.

At the same time, he denied any existing plans to expand the war into Syria, and indeed claimed there "we don't have a strategy" at all in place for any part of the war yet, saying asking Congress for permission for the war right now would be putting the cart before the horse until he figures out how big of a war it will be. The White House later clarified that as "no military strategy."
