Well this is a little awkward. Following John Kerry’s “seeking cooperation” apology tour to Moscow, President Obama appears to be following the path that Donald Trump has suggested as Military.com reports, Obama said Thursday at the Pentagon that The United States must try to broker a deal with Russia to coordinate military operations in Syria and drive the Islamic State group out of that country.
Obama was at The Pentagon to meet with his national security advisers to discuss ongoing strategies in the campaign against the Islamic State group. At a news conference that followed, he said no tactic used by the terrorists will stop the United States from fighting them on every front across the globe.
“We’ll keep working with allies and partners to go after [the Islamic State group] wherever it tries to spread,” the president said.
