More U.S. troops will be going to Iraq in the months ahead to help local forces defeat ISIS, the top American military commander in charge of operations in the Middle East told Fox News in Baghdad Thursday. This is in addition to the 560 U.S. forces President Obama ordered to Iraq this week.

“There will probably be some additional capabilities we will need to bring in to complete our objectives,” said Gen. Joseph Votel, who heads the U.S. Central Command.
