WATCH: Jon Stewart salutes Obama's 300
The U.S. originally announced it would send 275 troops into Iraq. Upon revising that number to a full 300, Jon Stewart thinks President Obama has found exactly the right strategy.
As the Sunni militant group ISIS quickly gains control of much of Iraq, Jon Stewart applauds President Obama's decision to send exactly 300 troops to Iraq. "300 is the exact number of troops, not one less, not one more," says Stewart. Echoing the battle cry of King Leonidas from Zack Snyder's 2007 film '300,' Stewart declares, "we have arrived!" The U.S. sending troops back into Iraq has also meant the reemergence of Dick Cheney – giving him an "opportunity to place all sorts of blame for the crisis on everyone but himself."
