President Obama speaking to the troops at MacDill Air Force Base about the strategy to confront the terror group ISIS.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa:
Hundreds of airmen, sailors, soldiers and Marines here being told by their Commander in Chief what is expected.
(President Obama) “The American forces that have been deployed to Iraq do not and will not have a combat mission.”
Rather, the President reiterating U.S. airstrikes will assist Iraqis and regional fighters.
(President Obama) “It is the world rejecting the brutality of ISIL in favor of a better future for our children and our children’s children.”
President Obama also meeting here with U.S. commanders and representatives from allies, some agreeing to join those airstrikes and the fight on the ground.
