President Obama Visits the Pentagon For A Briefing On The War Against The Islamic State



Reuters: Obama touts progress against Islamic State

President Barack Obama on Thursday touted progress the United States and its allies have made in the military campaign against Islamic State, though he said the militant group still has the ability to direct and inspire attacks.

While the U.S.-led air and ground campaign against the group's strongholds in Iraq and Syria have cost it territory, IS is adapting by reverting to high-profile attacks and by using the internet to recruit members, train them and encourage "lone wolf" attacks. Islamic State also maintains control of major cities, including Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria.

1) Is ISIS in Iraq and Syria in trouble because of Obama or Putin?

2) Is the SA, Hezbollah, Shia Militia, Iran and Russia the reason or is it Obama's desultory use of American military power?

3) Is it a victory if ISIS diminishes in the Levant only to metastasize elsewhere and grow even larger there?

If a surgeon cut out every bit of cancer in your liver that had started in liver, but it had metastasized to other parts of your body and was larger there than it had been in your liver, would your prognosis be good?

Democrats do not attempt to answer the above question. You will not get it right unless you drink copious amounts of alcohol and you inadvertently let the truth slip out.

4) Is Obama an idiot?
