• NBC Reporter: Obama’s ISIS Strategy the ‘Definition of Stupidity’

    While Obama was out sending a message to so-called climate change skeptics that “denying” global warming “or refusing to deal with it undermines our national security,” ISIS fighters were literally killing hundreds of Muslims and taking control of more territory in Iraq and Syria.

    “Make no mistake,” Obama told cadets at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy on Wednesday, “it will impact how our military defends our country. We need to act and we need to act now.”

    Call me crazy but it seems like the need for a call to action shouldn’t be focused combating warm weather, politicized science, and scare tactics but on destroying the group of Islam-inspired serial killers taking over a country that thousands of America’s military member fought and died to liberate.

    The Islamic State “is a terrorist state that international efforts–U.S.-led efforts have not been able to dislodge. And it seems to be getting bigger,” said NBC correspondent Richard Engel. “Although the U.S. is leading an air war in Iraq and in Syria against ISIS, the group is continuing to expand. I think it raises enormous questions about the strategy.”

    “Can the U.S. continue on this course?” Engel asked. “Even when the definition of stupidity, frankly, is continuing on the same course and expecting a different result.”

    “ISIL seems to have the advantage,” Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman said according to the Wall Street Journal. “They will use this for their own propaganda purposes, but it doesn’t give them a significant tactical advantage.”

    Meanwhile the White House is content with downplaying this latest tragedy in Ramadi, calling it a “setback.
