FOX News Anchor Blasts State Department Spokeswoman: These Special Operators in Iraq will be “Advisers just like they were in Vietnam”


When State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said, "Special operators are on the ground today, they know how to fight terrorists…" in an interview with FoxNews, the host Shep Smith was outraged. 

"Did you just say special operators are on the ground to attack ISIL? Because that's the biggest fear, that's exactly what the fear is — that these special operators, these 'advisers' are going to turn out to be advisers just like they were in Vietnam," Smith said. 

When Harf gave Smith a snarky smile he scolded her saying, "Well, you can smile about it all you want, but that's the fear. You're the one that said they are ready to fight ISIL, I hope that's not the case."

Watch the exchange below:

Editor's Note: In fairness, Harf did state that "they know how to fight terrorists." She would later clarify that stating, "I said they know how to fight terrorists like ISIL better than anyone, and that's what they'll be advising and assisting the Iraqis to do themselves."

However, knowing that our men are "on the ground" means that more than likely they will have to fight to defend themselves. Is anyone really thinking otherwise?
