Congressman Turner released the following statement after the Administration announced they will send additional military advisers to Iraq:

“Just this week, President Obama admitted to the world that he does not have a strategy to combat ISIL. I am concerned that his recent decision to send 450 additional troops into harms way is a knee-jerk reaction to a political misstep, rather than a long-term strategy. This move underscores the fact that President Obama fails to recognize ISIL as a real threat to our national security.”
