When You've Lost Piers Morgan...

Publius · May 22, 2015

Former CNN talkinghead Piers Morgan, best known for his leftist anti-gun screeds every time there’s a shooting, instead took aim at Barack Obama’s failed policy to confront the Islamic State. In a scathing op-ed, Morgan wrote, “Obama’s had plenty of time to devise a successful strategy for dealing with the emerging threat of ISIS, and so far he has spectacularly failed. As they beheaded Americans, he made somber speeches, then played golf minutes literally seven minutes later. … The clear message? ‘Don’t worry, I’ve got this all under control.’ Only he hasn’t. Many parts of Iraq and Syria are demonstrably raging OUT of control. Obama’s ‘lead from behind’ military strategy … now looks hopelessly misguided. His decision to pull U.S. troops out of Iraq seems even more disastrous. … It’s time President Obama stopped talking a good game, and actually played one. Because I don’t think it’s too big a leap to suggest ISIS currently represents one of the biggest threats to global peace since the Nazis. … President Obama has to stop telling us how well everything’s going, admit this is now a very serious and unstable situation, and do something meaningful about it. … In short, the President has to show that the golf clubs are back in the bag now, and he’s serious. ISIS is winning. They must be stopped. Or we’ll all lose.”
