" Halting ISIS Would Require Strikes in Syria, General Says""

So, strike in Syria. There is no real border there and ISIS operates without regard to country boundaries.

Obama and Golf

NY Times  "... But only twice in more than 180 rounds has the president invited members of Congress to play with him..."

Maybe one outing with John Boehner was enough to convince Obama  not to ask any other members of Congress to join him for a round.

"The administration’s letter to Congress said, 'The mission is consistent with the president’s directive that the U.S. military protect U.S. personnel and facilities in Iraq, since the failure of the Mosul Dam could threaten the lives of large numbers of civilians and threaten U.S. personnel and facilities — including the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.'  "

This is a stretch, claiming that action against ISIS is just to protect US personnel in harm's way. Let's just admit that ISIS is an evil, dangerous group that we must help stop, thus protecting citizens of the Middle East, Berlin, NYC, London, , etc.
