Despite President Obama’s assurances that airstrikes in Iraq would be limited and the possibility of boots on the ground would not be considered, not all are convinced that things will run so smoothly. Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, for example, says he “still has concerns.”!/stevebruskCNN/status/497853732684836864!/stevebruskCNN/status/497854023203323904!/SabrinaSiddiqui/status/497851193214111744!/BenYount/status/497841188175499264
