We can't trust Obama with an Authorized Use of Military Force. To start with, he refers to the objective as ISIL, meaning "in the Levant" which restricts operations to Syria. Thus, ISIS units operating in parts of Iraq, Yemen and Libya would be off limits.
This is no accident, since the policies and language eminating from the White House are supervised and formulated by the Muslim Brotherhood. But there would undoubtedly be further shenanigans.
It's not hard to imagine Obama, his Muslim Brotherhood advisors and the likes of Cofy Annan deciding that American troops should not have an "unfair advantage". Thus, operations would forbid armored vehicles, body armor, air support, and specify that all troops in the field must have one hand taped behind their backs. They might even forbid the carrying of live ammunition, as the French did to their army in Indochina in the 1950's. It's not hard to imagine the Progressives deciding American troops need to be "non-threatening" amabassadors of good will, and put in harm's way defenseless!
This would do much to make the eschatological predictions of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi come true: setting our army up for defeat in Syria where "Allah will grant them a miraculous victory". But it sounds more like Obama setting us up rather than Allah.
