Sen. Tom Cotton, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday he supports sending ground troops into Syria in the fight against the Islamic State.
"I support American ground troops. The number is up to the generals," Cotton said during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "Whether it's another 5,000 or 10,000...is really a question for our generals and admirals."
The Arkansas Republican said he was "disappointed" with President Obama's speech Sunday, which he said simply reiterated "the same failed strategy."
