Boehner: Obama Poking ISIL on the Nose
The Obama administration lacks commitment to a strategy to defeat ISIL. In not jumping in wholeheartedly, come hell or high water, Barack Obama only goads ISIL while it grows. House Speaker John Boehner said as much in a recent interview. “These are barbarians,” Boehner told CBS. And we’re over there kind of poking them in the nose. We’re not really there to defeat and destroy. I go out of my way to try to be supportive of the president’s foreign policy when I think he’s right. When it comes to the issue of ISIS, the president said that he wants to destroy and eliminate ISIS. That’s what he said. That’s what the goal is. But then he outlines a strategy that nobody believes will accomplish the mission.“ Remember that one mission the Obama administration announced? The one to retake Mosul? Yeah, well that’s been called off because the Iraqi troops won’t be prepared. While Obama gained temporary political credibility, the real winner of canceled invasion plans is ISIL, who will use America’s perceived weakness to further groom jihadists in the West.
