LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Many people in Kentuckiana are closely monitoring the events unfolding in Iraq.
Some have loved ones in the military, and some even have loved ones in Iraq, a country now in turmoil.
On Tuesday morning, President Obama announced to Congress that he would send 275 US Military personnel to Iraq to strengthen security around the US Embassy.
With the redeployment of American forces, many questions have come up. Some people believe the US may have pulled out of Iraq too soon.
