POTUS under fire for saying no ‘complete strategy’ yet for training Iraqis

POTUS under fire for saying no ‘complete strategy’ yet for training Iraqis

If you pay attention, you may find it hard to figure out what exactly the President’s strategy is in the Middle East as a whole, and even specifically in Iraq.  Apparently, as it would turn out, he doesn’t know what it is either…


“When a finalized plan is presented to me by the Pentagon, then I will share it with the American people,” Obama said, adding, “We don’t yet have a complete strategy.”

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said in a statement: “It is no surprise this administration does not have a ‘complete strategy’ for training Iraqis to fight ISIS. What is surprising is that the president admitted it.”

An official afterward claimed that he was, “…talking only about optimizing that train-and-equip mission.” But the comments did nothing to help the belief among many that he doesn’t have a clue.
