Obama sends 47 troops to South Sudan to protect embassy

“In response to the deteriorating security situation in South Sudan, I have ordered the deployment of additional U.S. Armed Forces personnel to South Sudan to support the security of U.S. personnel, and our Embassy in Juba,” Obama wrote in a letter to Congress released Wednesday by the White House.
