Gates: I Would Not Put Ground Troops in Syria
BAIER: "And for the people who say OK, so what. Russia takes the hit. They do the military action. They strike the ISIS terrorists, why do we need to be there? What do you say to them?"
GATES: "Well, first of all, I think our role should be limited. I'd would not put ground troops in Syria. I do think that a safe haven is an achievable thing. I think the idea of training somebody from the outside and sending them in is nuts, it's just not going to work. The only way you can stanch the humanitarian flow, the humanitarian disaster is through some kind of a safe haven and I think that's achievable."
