Nearly a year after first admitting that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to fight Islamic State terrorists, President Obama made a similar statement which reveals the Commander-in-Chief is still stuck on square one.
“We don’t yet have a complete strategy,” the President admitted.
Despite the numerous beheadings, the slaughter of Christians, the burning alive of captives for months now, the man who heads the armed forces of the most powerful nation in the world still has no clue what he’s going to do.
Here is Obama in 2014:
And here he is again today:
Via the Weekly Standard:
At a press conference in Germany, President Obama admitted that he does not have a “complete strategy” to defeat ISIS.
“When a finalized plan is presented to me by the Pentagon, then I will share it with the American people,” said Obama. “We don’t yet have a complete strategy because it requires commitments on the part of the Iraqis as well about how recruitment takes place, how that training takes place. So the details of that are not yet worked out.”
Obama’s hesitation shows that a President undergoing on-the-job training when it comes to foreign policy is a bad idea. His hesitation after months of having an identifiable enemy shows he is simply incompetent.
It’s not the first time Obama has been unable to come up with a solution on foreign policy.
A book released in 2012 reveals that Obama actually cancelled the mission to take out Osama Bin Laden on three separate occasions.
In 2012, as the death toll in the Syrian civil war mounted, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta admitted that the President’s lack of decision making cost us.
In February of this year, the White House stalled on a rescue mission for ISIS hostages, during which time American and British journalists were beheaded.
The indecisiveness of a man who is to protect America from a growing threat in the Middle East doesn’t exactly instill confidence in the people.
Comment: Do you agree that this lack of strategy many months into the ongoing ISIL crisis shows that President Obama is incompetent?
