Obama Explains Strategy for Countering Terrorists in Iraq

Foreign Policy

“In an August 27 speech in Charlotte, North Carolina, President Obama recapped his administration’s strategy for countering terrorism in Iraq.

“We’re strengthening our partners — more military assistance to government and Kurdish forces in Iraq and moderate opposition in Syria,” he said. “We’re urging Iraqis to forge the kind of inclusive government that can deliver on national unity, and strong security forces and good governance that are ultimately going to be the antidote against terrorists. And we’re urging countries in the region and building an international coalition, including our closest allies, to support Iraqis as they take the fight to these barbaric terrorists.”

The president was addressing U.S. veterans attending the American Legion’s 96th annual convention.”
