Republicans Pressure President on Iraq

Obama-frown-1024x681Wash, D.C. — This Tuesday morning Republicans are putting pressure on the President to come up with a strategy against the extremists who are gaining ground in Iraq. The group has conquered several cities in Iraq. The Obama administration is sending almost 300 American forces in and around Iraq to help secure U.S. Assets.

The President is reportedly considering airstrikes and other options. U.S. Republicans said the group is a serious threat. “We have an Al Qaeda-armed insurgency group that’s on the rise,” said Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers (R). “That is a problem in Iraq. It’s also a problem for the United States and Europe.”

The Sunni militants behind the takeover are accused of mass killings in the country.
