The Pentagon Is Not Targeting ISIS Training Camps

The Pentagon Is Not Targeting ISIS Training Camps

The war on terror does not seem to be a priority for the Obama administration these days.

We last heard that Obama did not have a strategy on how to eliminate ISIS. Today, we found out from the Washington Free Beacon that the Pentagon does not even care about targeting ISIS.

The Pentagon has not conducted airstrikes against an estimated 60 Islamic State (IS) training camps that are supplying thousands of fighters each month to the terror group, according to defense and intelligence officials.

The camps are spread throughout Islamic State-controlled areas of Iraq and Syria and are off limits in the U.S.-led international bombing campaign because of concerns about collateral damage, said officials familiar with planning and execution of the yearlong bombing campaign.

Additionally, the IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) camps have been so successful that Islamic State leaders are considering expanding the camps to Libya and Yemen. Both states have become largely ungoverned areas in recent years.

The failure to target the training camps with U.S. and allied airstrikes is raising questions among some defense and intelligence officials about the commitment of President Obama and his senior aides to the current anti-IS strategy of degrading and ultimately destroying the terror group.

“If we know the location of these camps, and the president wants to destroy ISIS, why are the camps still functioning?” one official critical of the policy asked.

No strategy, no targeting of their training camps.

Not only is this a disregard for the power and terror that ISIS has shown itself to be, it is irresponsible and hopefully 2016 presidential candidates like Hillary Clinton will be asked, ‘Do you think the Pentagon should target ISIS training camps?’

Though, we doubt the media would ever ask such a question to a democrat.
