The response to President Obama’s “no strategy” remarks was almost immediate around the nation.
Most news organizations and political observers were astonished by President Obama’s seemingly imprudent remarks. Even the President’s political allies have not only been scrambling to distance themselves from his statement – but they’ve been actively attacking Obama’s slip of the tongue.
However, no one may be more put out then our nation’s military leaders.
NBC’s Richard Engel: “Well, I spoke to military commanders, I speak to former officials, and they are apoplectic. They think that this is a clear and present danger. They think something needs to be done.
One official said that this was a Freudian slip. That it shows how the United States does not have a policy to deal with Syria, even when you have ISIS — which has effectively become a terrorist army, roughly 20,000 strong, about half of them foreign fighters — and incredibly well-armed after two major weapons hauls.”
This can’t be good.
