If we do I will consult Congress and leaders in Iraq and in the region,” he said.“We simply don’t have the ability to solve this problem by sending in tens of thousands of troops,” Obama added.Obama also said Iran could play a constructive role in the conflict if its message was the same as Washington’s; namely that all sides in Iraq need to be united and respected.
