President Obama is sending nearly 300 U.S. soldiers to Iraq to protect personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad as a militant Sunni group continues its push on parts of the country. Massachusetts U.S. Congressman Richard Neal addressed the issue Tuesday.

Neal, a Democrat representing Massachusetts’ First District, said in Lee that Congress is waiting to see what President Obama’s position is.

A brief meeting yesterday between U.S. and Iranian officials in Vienna and news today that the U.S. is deploying almost 300 troops to Iraq to protect its embassy there amid deadly clashes between Shiite Iraqi forces and the Sunni extremist group ISIS has given the world plenty to talk about in the last 24 hours.
