Iraq Redux

From the archive, on September 13, 2014, U.S. troop strength in Iraq was increased to 1600, up from 875 on August 13, 2014, and up from an initial 300 in June 2014.  On November 7, 2014, President Obama ordered another 1500 troops to Iraq, pushing the total past 3000.

A tenfold increase in five months, worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize.
