US commandos heading into Syria

U.S. officials say President Barack Obama ordered the deployment of fewer than 50 commandos to help coalition forces coordinate with the local troops.

One official also says the U.S. will be sending additional aircraft, including F-15 fighters and A-10s to the Incirlik air base in Turkey.

The officials were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity.
