Jon Stewart: Why Are We Sending More and More Troops to Iraq?

At this rate, we'll all be in Iraq fighting ISIS soon.

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart observed that President Obama's strategy in the fight against ISIS appears to have shifted somewhat. In September, the President  promised that no combat troops would be sent to Iraq. Now, 3,100 troops have been authorized to go, a big jump from the 275 who went to Iraq in June.  ”Within 5 months, we've increased US troops in Iraq by 10 times. At that rate, by 2016 … everyone on earth will be in Iraq, fighting ISIS! We're going to have to recruit people from ISIS to fight ISIS!” 

Watch Stewart slam America's Iraq strategy.
