AUSTIN (KXAN) – Texas Gov. Rick Perry is speaking out about the situation in Iraq as U.S. warplanes have been striking the terror group Isis for more than a week.

In a Politico editorial, Perry says the U.S. needs to take a deeper look at whether we should be more involved in Iraq. He also calls on lawmakers to put aside partisan bickering and discuss consequences of action and inaction.

“Rather than rehashing the causes of today’s crisis, we need to focus on outcomes still within our power to influence,” Perry wrote.
