He means Obama, …well it’s pretty clear what Lt.Col. West means. Obama made a huge mistake in Iraq. It could be argued Obama made the situation within ISIS so bad that they because strong enough and bold enough to attack Paris which they did last Friday.
Obama admitted at a G-7 summit in Germany that the U.S. still lacks a “complete strategy” for training Iraqi forces to defeat ISIS. Yesterday he prevaricated yet again and said the strategy was correct and needs more time.
Which is it Mr. President? Did you have a strategy but not tell us or did you not have a strategy and tell us you did?
“We can’t put the genie back in the bottle, but the Obama administration should have listened to [Army] Gen. [Lloyd] Austin when he was the operational commander on the ground. He requested between 10,000 to 12,000 troops as a residual force. The result is that President Obama based his national security strategy on campaign promises and not on the reality on the ground. Right now, President Obama needs to listen to his generals and we need to understand how we can truly get in and defeat ISIS.”
CNSNews.com asked West what he thought were the chances that Obama would admit he made a strategic mistake in Iraq.
“Zero, because we’re dealing with an intransigent ideologue,” he replied. That means: “Obama is a liar.”
