Finally, the truth! Obama admits he didn’t pay much attention to ISIS. I think we figured that out when you were working on your golf game instead of speak on behalf of the people that have been affected by the horrific attacks happening on American soil throughout your entire presidency. Way to step up and admit your faults. Wow.
VIA| President Barack Obama made a stunning admission about the Islamic State group that gave us more proof of why he should’ve never been elected president.
In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria about his legacy, Obama admitted the rise of the terrorist group wasn’t something he considered.
In a portion of the video uploaded to CNN’s website, Zakaria asked the president if he were to be completely honest, could he say the rise of the Islamic State group took him and the administration by surprise.
“The ability of ISIL to not just mass inside of Syria, but then to initiate major land offensives that took Mosul, for example, that was not on my intelligence radar screen,” Obama said.
While Obama might have admitted the rise of the terror army took him by surprise, he stopped short of actually accepting any responsibility for how the organization grew.
