President Barack Obama said Thursday that American forces would not be returning to combat in Iraq. He announced that military advisers will be heading to Iraq to combat the terrorist group ISIS that is gaining ground in that country.
"We are prepared to send a small number of additional American military advisers - up to 300 - to assess how we can best train, advise and support Iraqi security forces going forward," the President said.
