American Legion Commander Backs Airstrikes in Iraq

Indianapolis-based American Legion National Commander Daniel Dellinger says current airstrikes in Iraq are necessary. 

Dellinger says the airstrikes ordered by the President should remain focused on supporting U.S. military personnel and protecting Iraqi civilians threatened by Islamic terrorists.  Dellinger says hopefully the strikes will be "quick and surgical" to prevent deeper involvement that could lead to war. 

Dellinger says the brief campaign is also needed to provide humanitarian relief that includes food and water to trapped civilians.  Dellinger says Islamic radicals have no regard for human life and that at this point, the U.S cannot isolate itself from the situation.
