George Will On Obama’s Handling Of ISIS: He’s Lost All Control

In the wake of the brutal beheading of American Journalist James Foley and their increasingly horrifying takeover of Syrian and Iraqi land, ISIS is not the “jayvee” terrorist “team” that Obama described them as.

“On Thursday the Secretary of Defense [called ISIS] a imminent threat,” Will said, “not a direct threat, today, however, says the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They both have offices on the E Wing of the Pentagon. They ought to be able to get together on this story.”

Obama himself has come under intense fire recently for down playing ISIS’s threat to America’s safety, back in January 2014.

The analogy we use around here sometimes,” Obama said, referring to ISIS, “and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.”

At a press briefing Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest tried his best to clean up the mess Obama made with that small-minded statement. “It’s important that we don’t sort of shorthand the analogy the president was trying to draw.” Earnest said. 

“The fact is that the, we have all along, the administration has had an exaggerated sense of its ability to finely calibrate the ISIS threat,” George Will added.

“Now the Obama administration is saying, ‘Well if we bomb in Syria, across the fictional border in Syria, which has been erased, we might help Assad.’ I want someone to explain to me quite why we want Assad to go at this point.”

As the Obama struggles to decide whether to bomb ISIS in Syria or not, The Syrian government is now warning Obama to not bomb ISIS without its permission.

It’s amateur hour over at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.
