Yesterday morning an interview with Obama was aired on Good Morning America. The segment aired just airs before France came under attack from ISIS Muslims.
Heres what Obama said.
I dont think theyre gaining strength, Obama responded. What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria theyll come in, theyll leave, but you dont see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.
What we have not yet been able to do is to completely decapitate their command and control structures, he admitted. Weve made some progress in trying to reduce the flow of foreign fighters and part our goal has to be to recruit more effective Sunni partners in Iraq to really go on offense rather than simply engage in defense.
This is not only outrageous, its damn near treasonous. A sitting U.S. President is telling us ISIS is not gaining ground while at the exact same moment ISIS is gaining ground around the globe. And they are using these gains to kill people in the name of Islam.
Heres the full segment.
