Cruz okays ground troops option

Posted by wlpo on February 8, 2015

Sen. Ted Cruz isn’t ruling out sending American ground troops to fight Islamic State militants. The Texas Republican tells ABC’s “This Week” that “if need be, we should go that step.” But he says Iraqi Kurds already have a good fighting force on the ground.

He says they just need to receive arms more effectively from the United States, rather than through the central government in Baghdad.
