The information released on Sunday shows January has been one of the bloodiest months in Iraq for years, according released Sunday show.
Meanwhile outgoing Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel hinted on CNN that U.S. ground forces may again be deployed to Iraq.

“I think it may require a forward deployment of some of our troops,” he said.

Hagel said the troops wouldn't operate as frontline fighters, but instead support Iraqi government forces in spotting Islamic State group targets and gathering intelligence.
He also stated he is unsure whether such a deployment is yet needed.

Asked, "You are saying you think it could be necessary," he replied, "It could be. But I'm not willing to say that it will be necessary. I say it could be necessary."
General Martin Dempsey, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also told Congress earlier that American troops could be required to take a larger role in Iraq
