While the murderous monsters of ISIS are celebrating the release of a new video showing the beheading of another Westerner, the White is still displaying a great deal of timidity toward the dangerous terror group.
During a White House press briefing today, Obama’s press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters that his boss isn’t sure if he’s going to kill ISIS leadership.
When asked by CNN reporter Jim Acosta if “the president authorized the Pentagon to target individual leaders of ISIS in Syria or Iraq,” Earnest said, “I will say that the president is still reviewing the plans and proposals that the Department of Defense has been hard at work developing.”
Acosta pressed Earnest further, saying “You say degrade and destroy ISIS—that should mean taking out their leadership, isn’t that right?”
“Well, depriving these organizations of leaders, either on the battle field or in the command and control centers certainly would have the effect of degrading and possibly ultimately destroying them,” Earnest responded. “But I don’t want to get ahead of any decision making at the presidential level that still needs to be done.”
If you’re keeping score, ISIS has amassed wealth north of $2 billion, their fighting force is growing by the day, ISIS now controls more than 35,000 sq. miles in Iraq and Syria, and they continue to conduct mass killings, rape women and sell them into sex slavery.
And this administration doesn’t know if it’s going to target and destroy ISIS’s leadership?
