Leaders debate comes to an end as a day of mourning turns to day of reckoning
Dykes for Trump: What we know about the campaign so far
Pence calls it a national security crisis
The day began with a briefing by Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at which he said that the U.S. was losing 10,000 troops a month to desertions and insurgency across the Middle East and North Africa. Dunford said it is too early to determine how widespread the problem is or whether the issue can be tackled by more troops.
The administration on Friday issued a joint statement with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, telling reporters that the military was now "focusing" on combatting a rising number of violent extremist groups. They added that "we are now beginning to tackle the underlying causes that have led to this failure to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria."
One day later, a military source told CNN that combatting the Islamic State could become a key objective "within months" as the U.S. attempts to replace the Iraqi government with an "elected government."
A third source, the former senior member of President Barack Obama's national security team in Iraq, confirmed the report. He said that the president and the vice president plan to push the adminis더킹카지노tration to accelerate the withdrawal of U.S. forces to about 4jarvees.com,000 troops by the end of this year.
A senior Obama administration official told CNN's Jake Tapper that this goal will not be met, since the effort to rebuild the Iraqi army was so poorly executed and the effort to win the war "remains a massive, multi-pronged effort." The official declined to confirm that President Barack Obama will announce a withdrawal plan soon.
He argued 우리카지노that the administration will likely not find a solution to that challenge for another six months, meaning "the U.S. will be playing defense for most of 2014."
