'I think we need to say that clearly' - U.S. Sec'y of Defense Ash Carter
From the Wall Street Journal, May 3, 2016:
"It is a combat death, of course,” (U.S. Sec'y of Defense Ash Carter) said. “And a very sad loss.”
In testimony to the U.S. Senate last week, the defense secretary affirmed that American troops were in combat, despite the White House’s emphasis on their advise-and-assist capacity. “I think we need to say that clearly,” he said.
A U.S. service member helping Kurdish fighters near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul was killed during an attack by Islamic State forces on Tuesday, underscoring the risks U.S. forces face even as they seek to limit their military involvement in the country.
(The Obama Administration) describes the deployment in Iraq as an 'advise-and-assist' mission. But Tuesday’s incident highlighted how even that strategy entails a significant level of danger for American troops.
In March of this year, a U.S. Marine was killed, and 8 others wounded, by a rocket attack in Iraq.
