Dempsey Won't Rule Out U.S. Military Action in Iraq

The chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, left the door open Thursday to stepped-up U.S. military involvement in Iraq if the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) poses a threat to the United States.

"Assessing and advising and enabling are very different words than attacking, defeating and disrupting," CNN quoted Dempsey as having said during a briefing at the Pentagon in Washington.
