BOSTON (CBS) – The United States conducted a “targeted airstrike” in Iraq, in an attempt to take out artillery controlled by ISIS. This is a reversal of policy for the U.S., and marks the deepest engagement with the Middle Eastern nation since we pulled our troops out in 2011. President Obama said the attack was necessary to protect American personnel still on the ground, as well as the Iraqi civilians facing potential genocide at the hands of the terrorist organization. Dan will be joined by Dexer Van Zile, Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, and Juliana Taimoorazy, founder of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council. The two will talk about the religious component of the current situation in Iraq and answer your questions. Are you concerned to see our country re-engage in Iraq? Or did we have no choice? Do you think this situation has the potential to spiral into something bigger?
