Obama Officially Sending 450 More Troops To Iraq

President Obama has approved the deployment of 450 additional troops to Iraq to help with training Iraqi forces to fight ISIS. Additional U.S. troops will be sent to Anbar Province. 

The move comes just days after Obama said during the G7 Summit in Germany that the administration doesn't have a "complete" strategy surrounding how to defeat the terror army. Obama said the Pentagon hasn't presented him with a plan, which has been refuted by military officials. 

Last week ISIS took over 2200 U.S. humvees, $1 billion worth, and has been using them for suicide missions.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest is expected to comment on the troop deployment during the daily briefing.
