No wonder President Obama sees nothing wrong with what former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did with her private email server and his opinion that it did not damage national the security. When it comes to operation security, President Obama is a clear and present danger to the health and welfare of American forces. He and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats cannot keep their collective mouths shut.
Syria: Obama authorizes boots on ground to fight ISIS
Washington (CNN)The United States is set to deploy troops on the ground in Syria for the first time to advise and assist rebel forces combating ISIS, the White House said Friday.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that the U.S. would be deploying "less than 50" Special Operations forces, who will be sent to Kurdish-controlled territory in northern Syria. The American troops will help local Kurdish and Arab forces fighting ISIS with logistics and are planning to bolster their efforts.
Earnest said that this key element of U.S. strategy in confronting ISIS hasn't changed with Friday's announcement.
He was also careful to insist: "These forces do not have a combat mission."
The first group of Special Operations forces headed into northern Syria will come from the United States and could be on the ground within the month, according to a senior defense official.
Once the troops get there, they will be mainly based at an unofficial headquarters facility where representatives of Syrian Arabs, Kurds and other groups are located. The official would not disclose the location due to security concerns.
The troops will remain there for anywhere from weeks to months at a time, the official said.
The President has approved a current cap of less than 50 troops, with the first contingent expected to be about two dozen. But more could be sent, the official said.

The actual mission is train and advise, but if necessary (wink-wink) lead the mission to ensure success. Or as President Obama is loath to say, engage in combat.
It is becoming increasingly clear that America is going to support the Kurds, probably with a promise to recognize a free Kurdistan when it is formed. The Kurds are pro-American and our only standout in a complex five-way civil war along religious lines with dozens of factions, including self-serving kleptocratic warlords. Including Assad, backed by Hezbollah, Iran, and the Russian Air Force, fighting against the CIA-equipped Free Syrian Army, ISIS; and then the Kurds are fighting ISIS (not Assad). And, in some instances, it appears that the Americans are supporting Assad.
Bottom line …
There was absolutely no need for the President of the United States or his lickspittles to reveal the fact that troops will be deployed, their strength, their approximate location, and their mission. Does this douchebag that fraudulently holds the title of Commander-in-Chief realize that the enemy gets a vote and they are most likely to have spies to track the troops upon their arrival.
And, even worse, since the President has stated that these soldiers will not be involved in “combat,” it is likely that their rules of engagement favor the enemy and disadvantage our soldiers. Somewhat like the administration position that it is much better optics to have American deaths than civilian collateral damage that can be released to the world’s anti-America media.
Who is to say that Obama is not informing his contacts in the Iraqi Ministry of Defense who is in bed with Iran and Russia – both mounting forces against American-backed anti-Assad soldiers?
The Obamacons do not seem to have a grasp of history, military tactics, or even the will to win.
And, did anyone notice Obama is shifting fighter jets to Turkey ( Southern flank of NATO against Russia) that will most likely remain as a permanent deployment after the current ISIS conflict is tamped down. Also shipping a brigade of armor to the Baltics, the Northern flank of Russia, where there are a number of ethnic Russians that can be claimed by Russia.
We are so screwed.
