Obama Offers Odd Advice On Military Strategy To ISIS

Apparently, Obama fancies himself a leading authority on military tactics, even though he has failed miserably at leading the world’s greatest military power.

The President responded to the Islamic State’s brutal beheadings of American journalists by offering the terrorist organization a bit of advice on their strategy.

The New York Times reported:

But the president said he had already been headed toward a military response before the men’s deaths. He added that ISIS had made a major strategic error by killing them because the anger it generated resulted in the American public’s quickly backing military action.

If he had been “an adviser to ISIS,” Mr. Obama added, he would not have killed the hostages but released them and pinned notes on their chests saying, “Stay out of here; this is none of your business.” Such a move, he speculated, might have undercut support for military intervention.

As Breitbart points out, Obama’s statement is bogus on a number of levels. Dan Riehl writes:

How as it a mistake if Obama had “already been headed toward a military response before the men’s deaths’? Or, is he saying, even if he decided military action was necessary, he wouldn’t undertake it without broad public support the videos allegedly provide?

Furthermore, what proof is there that that’s the least bit correct? Days ago Obama admitted to having no strategy for the problem, now we learn he was all but set to go to war. Really? This sounds more like the words of a professorial president able to talk in and around every side of virtually every issue, while effectively leading on none – with the help of an entirely uncritical press determined to put the best face on anything and everything he does.

Obama’s advice for ISIS is laughable. Let us know what you think of the President’s statement in the comments section.
