Now, after the group has beheaded two Americans and has killed its way across Syria and Iraq, Obama is finally ready to tell America how he is going to deal with them.
However, CBS White House reporter Major Garrett is skeptical. He asked why Americans should even bother to watch Obama’s ISIS address tomorrow night.
“You said the president will tell the country there will be no ground troops involved, there’ll be no tactical operation details, no timeline for victory, no cost associated with the pursuit of victory,” Garrett said today to White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “Why should anyone watch?”
Earnest replied by saying Obama is going to explain to the American people the “risks” that the United States faces, and the plans Obama has “put together to destroy ISIL.”
Garrett’s grilling wasn’t over. He said “the audience wants to know how we’re going to win. ‘Mr. president, tell us how we’re going to win.’ And I don’t hear, based on what you said, that the president is going to tell people that tomorrow.”
“It’s because I don’t have the speech in front of me,” Earnest responded jokingly.
Obama is “in over his head” on ISIS.
But don’t worry, he met with a group of foreign policy “advisers” today. You should also know that those advisers are “regular” panelists on the liberal cesspool known as MSNBC.
