Sunday on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” network senior foreign affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz said President Barack Obama’s military advisers are “really worried” his insistence on no U.S. boots on the ground to combat ISIS will not work.
Raddatz said, “Gen. Dempsey is the president’s principal military adviser. He also makes a pledge to the Senate when he goes up there to tell the truth as he sees it.” she continued, “But what they might have to do is call in those forward air controllers. You need those to carry out strikes, to get accurate strikes. If you don’t have them, it really limits the targets and that’s what the military is really worried about here and they are also worried if this plan doesn’t work and, frankly, the president hasn’t explained if this strategy doesn’t work what he’ll do next after saying ISIS is such a threat.”
