Sources: Obama Stalled on ISIS Hostage Rescue Even Though We KNEW Where They Were

Obama apparently prevented US military forces from making any attempts to rescue the American hostages held by ISIS even though intelligence sources had pinpointed their locations.

Sources are now saying that Obama had the intel on where the hostages were several different times and refused to authorize any rescue attempts except once and that one failed.

The British intelligence service wasn’t the only one sharing information with Washington. Diane Foley, mother of James Foley, told The Daily Beast:

“Very specific information was available as early as mid-March. And that’s what’s been so tough for us as families, because apparently they were held in the same place all those months.”

While the White House has stressed all along they have done everything possible to rescue hostages while holding to established procedures, the official who spoke to The Daily Beast disagrees.

“They got the information. They just didn’t trust it. And they did sit on it, there’s no doubt about that.”

Failure. That is the single best word to describe Obama’s foreign policy morass.
