Transcript for President Obama Reportedly Weighs Sending Troops to Syria
The latest on the battle against Isis. President Obama set to decide whether to put more troops closer to the battle even on the ground in Syria and ABC's chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz in Washington with the details. Good morning, Martha. Reporter: Good morning, George. The administration is weighing a number of options that could expose our troops to more danger. One option is using forward air controllers on the ground to call in air strikes that makes it easier to find and confirm targets and "The Washington post" is reporting that the president will also consider putting a small team of special operations troops on the ground in Syria with those moderate Syrian rebels to advise and assist, George. Martha, this comes after the death of one of those troops in that raid on the Isis prison. In Afghanistan and could be very similar. The options in Iraq and Syria would not on paper put the U.S. Forces in direct combat but as we have seen that's always a possibility, George. Okay. Martha Raddatz, thanks very much.
