Jobs for Jihadistan?

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. That’s the policy of Barack Obama’s administration, especially when it comes to denying the reality of Islamic fascism. State Department spokesperson Marie Harf is the latest to explain their alternate reality. “We’re killing a lot of them [ISIL fighters] and we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us,” she said. “But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war.” On the contrary, wars are won by killing the enemy until they surrender. But Harf wasn’t done with her illusion. She blamed the rise of ISIL on – wait for it – the lack of economic opportunity. “We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, [including the] lack of opportunity for jobs,” she pontificated. “We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.” In a better world, the U.S. would be fighting evil instead of excusing it, and people like Marie Harf would be looking for “job opportunities” in the private sector.
