Mike Hookem said: “I am extremely concerned about the potential of mission creep; where we go from a supporting role to a fighting role without properly considering the consequences. Any role our armed forces training teams are committed to must be both properly defined and time limited to make sure we don’t inadvertently get dragged into a third land war in Iraq.”
