• White House Spox: The Rise of ISIS is Not Obama’s Fault

    This one’s no shocker.

    Despite the fact that the Islamic State grew in terms of influence, capital, and in numbers all while Obama was running around calling them a “JV” terrorist group, Obama’s still sending his press dummy out to tell the world that the rise of ISIS isn’t his fault.

    “Out of the remnants of the defeated AQI sprang ISIL,” Earnest said Wednesday during the White House press briefing. “The primary responsibility for that actually lies at the feet of Prime Minister Maliki, who failed to govern Iraq in an inclusive way, but rather, because of his failed leadership, allowed sectarian divisions to emerge and weaken that country and create an environment where ISIL was able to make surprising and significant gains across the countryside.”

    Earnest’s comments came after Obama himself basically admitted that the rise of ISIS occurred entirely under his presidency.

    “So as the group that the president disparaged as a junior varsity team rose up from a defeated AQI and gathered enough strength to be able to take over huge swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq, this was chiefly the fault of al-Maliki and Barack Obama bears no responsibility whatsoever?” Fox News reporter James Rosen asked Earnest.

    “Well, James, I think the point is the Iraqi people, the Iraqi government and the Iraqi Security Forces have to be responsible for the security situation in their own country,” Earnest said.

    What a douche.
