Our friends over at IJReview.com hit the nail on the head with this video about how serious the Admin is about ISIL Defeat But I would go one step further. Press Secretary Earnest says at about 1:20 into the clip ( Clip is here )
“We can deploy a tried and true counter terrorism strategy that this administration has used successfully in other contexts”
My follow up question would have been “Could you please name a few situations where your Tried and True Counter Terrorism Strategy worked” Seriously if this strategy existed and actually worked would this ISIL situation actually exist? I try not to write from a partisan point of view but this is a legitimate question and would love to hear from any of you.
