Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren told reporters Friday that she stood by President Barack Obama’s decision to begin targeted airstrikes over northern Iraq, although she insisted that the United States not be pulled into another war in Iraq, calling instead for negotiations to end the conflict. The Boston Herald reports:

“It’s a complicated situation right now in Iraq and the president has taken very targeted actions to provide humanitarian relief that the Iraqi government requested, and to protect American citizens,” Warren told reporters. “But like the president I believe that any solution in Iraq is going to be a negotiated solution, not a military solution. We do not want to be pulled into another war in Iraq.”

The question: if the United States does not negotiate with terrorists, who will be doing the negotiating? Warren said it was possible that the U.S. could assist the Iraqi government in negotiating with ISIS.
