In the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack, President Obama spoke to a grieving nation on Monday painting a rosy picture of our fight against ISIL – before going on a rant against using the term “radical Islamic terrorism.” But, on Thursday, CIA Director John Brennan testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee and painted a much more frightening picture of America’s war on radical Islamic terrorists (sorry Obama, I meant to say) ISIL, stating that, while we have damaged them financially and in some theaters, “Unfortunately, despite all our progress against ISIL on the battlefield and in the financial realm, our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorism capability and global reach.”
