Obama Rules Out Sending Troops to Iraq

U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday ruled out sending U.S. troops "back into combat" in Iraq despite the threat from a surging army of Islamic terrorists, ABC News reports.

Speaking as several cities in Iraq continued to fall under the flags of the Al-Qaeda-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), Obama told reporters his National Security Council was still considering options.
