Obama’s latest pathetic speech on terror

Posted by on Dec 07, 2015 at 7:24 am

He gave the same old defense of his anti-ISIS strategy, with the added bit that now there’s a “timetable” for getting a cease-fire in the Syrian war. A timetable — that’ll show ’em!

And he’s sticking to his laughable claim that the only alternative to his approach is a decade-long US occupation à la Iraq. How about relaxing his Rules of Engagement, which have three-quarters of US planes returning to base without dropping their bombs?

He closed with another long warning against mindless Islamophobia — despite the fact that the country shows no sign of going there. America still has far more “hate crimes” against Jews.

This wasn’t a national-security speech, it was a political effort — and a weak one. The real message is that this president isn’t going to let facts shift his chosen course.

That’ll be up to the voters next November.

Full story.
