Plus: Obama warned for over a year about threat of ISIS!
ISIS has released a video showing the beheading of Steven Sotloff. This is the second American murdered in this barbaric, horrific fashion in the past two weeks. The only reaction to date from the White House is from Press Secretary Josh Earnest who sends the family "thoughts and prayers."
Still no strategy from Obama on how to deal with the problem despite his own statement more than a year ago stating that we needed a strategy (see below). And now, we learn that not only was Obama repeatedly warned for over a year about the threat from ISIS in the Presidential Daily Briefing (PDF) from the intelligence community but that he also passed up opportunities the Pentagon had prepared to take military action against the group when it might have mattered most.
Meanwhile, the British Prime Minster David Cameron continues to speak out and act forcefully to highlight the danger and act against the threat. One wonders if he were an American politician he would be required to undergo sensitivity training to avoid offending Muslims!
How many more Americans will die before Obama gets a clue, let alone a strategy? START BOMBING ISIS IN SYRIA NOW!
UPDATE: I was listening to Maajid Nawaz, a former Islamic radical who said that Obama's dithering on this issue plays right into the hands of ISIS who see it as proof that god is on their side. Thanks Obama!
