Obama to Send 300 'Advisers' to Iraq

U.S. President Barack Obama announced on Thursday that he is sending up to 300 troops to Iraq to help Iraqi military forces deal with an onslaught by radical Islamist terrorists, reports The Washington Post.

However, Obama stressed the troops would not be combat troops but would instead operate as “advisers” to the Iraqi forces.
