The onslaught against the Iraqi government by al Qaeda splinter group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is threatening to overtake the American embassy in Baghdad, and as the bad news spreads from city to city in the nation, President Obama finally weighed in, offering any available help to the Iraqi government.

“It’s going to need more help from us, and it’s going to need more help from the international community,” President Obama said about the crisis in Iraq on Thursday, confirming that the United States won’t “rule out anything because we do have a stake in making sure that these jihadists are not getting a permanent foothold in either Iraq or Syria.”

The President’s declaration today was a change of tone for Democrats and the White House in recent days. A New York Times report alleged that Iraqi President Nouri al-Maliki had requested air strike aid from the United States to combat ISIS, but that request had been denied. While the White House apparently denied the request, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that there actually is a U.S. drone presence over Iraq– the United States, they allege, has been flying surveillance drones over Iraq for the past year.

On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest urged the Iraqi government to “step up to the plate” and handle the situation themselves, though proposing the United States could offer “some security assistance” to the country. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, meanwhile, deemed the outbreak of fighting in Iraq simply “not our responsibility.”
