Mook Walks Back Clinton’s Claims About Troops On The Ground In Syria

During Wednesday night’s Comander-in-Chief Forum, Hillary Clinton vowed never to send U.S. ground troops into Iraq and Syria to combat ISIS:

“They are not going to get ground troops. We are not putting ground troops into Iraq ever again. And we’re not putting ground troops into Syria. We’re going to defeat ISIS without committing American ground troops.”

Clinton’s campaign manager had to walk back those claims during an interview Thursday morning saying, “First of all, there are, obviously, special operators in both of those areas now, and she certainly supports that. What she was saying is that she doesn’t think it’s appropriate to get into another ground war there right now.”
