Critics:  Top brass in Pentagon:

  • Leon Panetta – former Obama CIA Director
  • Bob Gates – former Obama Secretary of Defense,
  • Gen Jack Keene – four-star general and Vice Chief of Staff of the United US Army
  • Dennis Ross, Former Mideast negotiator

  • Many More

ISIS/ISIL – Islamic State in Iraq, Syria and many other nations!

ISIS Crisis:

  • ISIS attacks Ala Sahd ….US marines
  • ISIS waging a holy war against Christians?
  • Is it good policy to tell your enemy what you plan to do?
  • Kayla Mueller – four Americans now murdered
  • Sickening video surfaced showing black-clad jihadists marching 21 Coptic (Egyptian) Christians to a beach to be beheaded. TWO WAVES OF EGYPTIAN AIRSTRIKES attacked ISIS militants in neighboring Libya, killed 64 militants ….destroyed  training camps and weapons caches a day after Obama speaks of media hype
  • In -The -Know Consensus: the threat from Muslim fanatics is growing and Obama admin does not have an effective srategy to deal with it

AUMF – Authorization to Use Military Force was requested:

Vague and non-specific language:

  • THREE-YEAR limit?
  • All necessary and appropriate steps to defeat the enemy?
  • Would impose ban on enduring ground combat operations?
  • Would not impose geographic restrictions?
  • Democrats worry that it gives the president too much discretion to use ground troops to fight an open-ended war.
  • Republicans have the opposite concern, believing that proposal’s ban on “enduring offensive ground operations” is too restrictive.
  • Some believe that a new AUMF is not necessary …operations against terror are authorized by the 2002 AUMF

 

Obama “Mispeaks,” or Gaffes?

  • ISIS is a media phenomenon because they over-hype
  • Compare his responsibility to a big city mayor trying to stop crime?!
  • ISIS is not Islamic??
  • Comparing ISIS to Christians
  • Yemen embassy closed (National Prayer Breakfast)
  • Global warming greater threat than terrorism
