Ashton Carter: U.S. to Begin 'Direct Action on the Ground' in Iraq, Syria
 
 Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday that the U.S. will begin "direct action on the ground" against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria, aiming to intensify pressure on the militants as progress against them remains elusive.
 
"We won't hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against ISIL, or conducting such missions directly whether by strikes from the air or direct action on the ground," Carter said in testimony before the Senate Armed Services committee, using an alternative name for the militant group.

During testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that the U.S. will begin “direct action on the ground” against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria with the hopes of  intensifying pressure on the jihadists. Due to the Obama administration’s half-hearted air campaign and abysmal failure to arm and train fighters, progress against the terrorists has been “elusive.”
