President Obama said Friday that the United States won't be sending any troops back into combat in Iraq where Al-Qaeda-linked insurgents seized large parts of the north and continued their rapid advance towards Baghdad. Obama said, however, that America will "do our part" to help the troubled nation. "Any action that we may take…has to be joined by a serious and sincere effort by Iraq’s leaders," Obama said. The president's remarks came a day after he told reporters "I don't rule out anything" when it comes to a U.S. response to the violence in Iraq.
