Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain often get a bad rap in conservative circles, but there are many occasions when it’s rather startling to realize that they’re the only ones raising red flags about major threats to America. On two separate Sunday news programs, The McGraham Machine sounded the alarm about the future plans of ISIS, once they fully conquer Iraq:
“These people that are coming to fight on the side of ISIS are returning to their countries in Europe, and there’s 100 of them that we are tracking in the United States,” said McCain. “One was in Syria, came back to the United States, and then went back to Syria and blew himself up. Mr. Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, when he left our Camp Bucca, the camp in Iraq, he said ‘see you in New York.’ Their goal, as they have stated openly time after time, is the destruction of the United States.”
Similarly, Lindsey Graham remarked, “They’re coming here. This is just not about Baghdad. This is just not just about Syria. It is about our homeland, and if we get attacked because [Obama] has no strategy to protect us, then he will have committed a blunder for the ages.”
Graham added that when Obama raised his right hand to be sworn in for a second time, he took an oath to defend America from all threats foreign and domestic, which “trumps any political promise.”
President Obama hasn’t listened to the likes of McCain or Graham on pretty much any foreign policy issue, and often falsely portrays their positions as calling for military intervention 100 percent of the time. From the looks of it, that’s also how he treats the advice of his generals on the ground: any time a recommendation may have even the slightest echo of a military engagement, Obama essentially sticks his fingers in his ears and characterizes the person who recommended it as a war-monger. Great executive management there, is it not?
As Rep. Peter King asked this weekend, “what kind of leadership” is it to rule out ground troops in a place like Iraq?
“They are more powerful now than al Qaeda was on 9/11 … we see this coming,” said Congressman King of ISIS.
But, you know, he’s just a war-monger or something.
