No strategy from Pentagon before WH went to war with ISIS


If this story is true, and no matter what our political stripes are, we can only pray that this story from Breitbart is not true. For if it is, then we have a match to rival most despots known to mankind. Forget the so-called “Kill List” that is reported that Obama maintains, but now we are going to war without any strategy? I usually like a Sunday post be on the lighter side, but this is worthy of our attention. Here we go:

As of the end of August, there was no communication between the White House and the Pentagon concerning a strategy to fight the Islamic State, the Department of Defense (DoD) said in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Not only did the president not have a strategy, as he candidly admitted on August 28, the White House did not talk about developing a strategy with his Defense Department prior to launching airstrikes against ISIS targets in Iraq on August 8.

This contradicts comments by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest trying to explain Obama telling reporters on August 28, “We don’t have a strategy yet.”
The White House attempted to blame the Pentagon for delaying the development of a strategy.

On August 29, Earnest insisted that what Obama meant is that he was then-waiting for the Pentagon to make recommendations on what to do.

“The Pentagon is developing plans or military options for the president to consider if he decides that it’s necessary to do so,” he said. “But at this point, the president hasn’t made any decisions and hasn’t ordered any military action in Syria.”

    So, what then would be the immensely brilliant conservative strategy? I mean, who else should we be asking? Conservatives have such a long and distinguished history of making the world a better place. Take for example… um…

    An unprepared country united behind a committed leader and military, along with our allies fought a war against three entrenched war mongeting world power countries on three continents and two oceans and defeated them in three and a half years. This president and possibly along with his military and the Washington elite has little or no intention of defeating Obola’s brother Islamists in Saddam Hussain’s former playground…why mince words?

      I can only imagine what future Historians may write concerning the downfall of America. That is if there are any honest ones left to write.

    Strategy? The greatest President ever and the greatest military the world has ever known doesn’t need a strategy to easily defeat a rag-tag junior varsity terrorist group. Maybe his plan was to talk them to death.

      We really have a wacko bird in the WH. Much to fear, but I guess we knew that already.
