Military Assessment Says IRAQI UNITS Infiltrated By ISIS And IRAN BACKED Militia – Unsafe For AMERICAN Advisors!
July 14th, 2014
A new military assessment says Iraqi military units have been infiltrated by ISIS and IRAN BACKED militia.
The report states that American advisors would face a safety risk if they are assigned to train certain units.
I, for one, do not want our young men and women over there trying to train anyone…it is too late for that.
Obama should never have pulled our troops from Iraq to begin with, but he was trying to build the way for ISIS.
The report was prepared by a team of Special Forces last month, as the Sunni militant group, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant(ISIS) swept across Iraq with a vast amount of success.
The report also conveyed that Iraqi forces may not be able to defend Baghdad if the militants attacked the capital in large number…which we know they will do.
Among other shocking findings, Iraqi forces are not capable on their own of reversing gains made by ISIS, a conclusion made by General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
This is very depressing, and I just don’t see a way to get ahead of ISIS. Again, we should have never pulled out of Iraq!
The report, and the recommendations developed from it by Central Command and the Joint Staff, are expected to influence the Obama administration’s decision about whether or not to send more advisers, weaponry, and surveillance systems to aid Iraq’s army against ISIS.
The United States spent an estimated $25 billion on training and equipping the Iraqi army prior to the withdrawal of American troops in 2011. In the intervening years, the level of training and equipment upkeep have reportedly declined, while al-Maliki has increased tension in the ranks by promoting officers based on political loyalty.
Earlier this month, the Pentagon decided to send 200 troops, as well as six Apache helicopter gunships and Shadow surveillance drones, to the Baghdad airport after receiving a classified intelligence assessment that the airport was vulnerable to an attack by ISIS
