On the eve of the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and the 2nd anniversary of the 9/11/12 attack (aka "phony scandal") in Benghazi, Obama is going to make a speech.
He apparently is set to alter his "We don't have a strategy yet" declaration from August 28, 2014.
Obama will make his big speech this Wednesday.
I guess he needs half a week to hype it.
He supposedly is going to outline his strategy, the one he didn't have ten days ago.
From the Washington Post:
President Obama said it is time for the United States to "start going on some offense" to stop the advances of the Islamic State in the Middle East as he prepared to announce the next phase of the U.S. effort that he said would require additional resources in the region.Obama says it's time for the U.S. to "start going on some offense."
"There's going to be a military element to it," Obama said in an interview to air Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." "And what I want people to understand, though, is that over the course of months, we are going to be able to not just blunt the momentum of ISIL. We are going to systematically degrade their capabilities. We're going to shrink the territory that they control. And ultimately we're going to defeat them."
Time for the varsity squad to get a little tough with the JV team?
..."They're not a JV team," Obama acknowledged of the Islamic State, after Todd reminded the president that he had referred to offshoots of al-Qaeda as akin to junior varsity terrorist groups in an interview with the New Yorker last January.Did it take the beheadings of two American jounralists to get Obama's attention?
Whatever Obama's alleged game plan is, I'm sure it will be ineffective.
Obama is weak. We know it and the world knows it.
