So, according to Obama, ISIS is contained.
Tell that to the loved ones of those slaughtered in Paris by Islamic terrorists.
Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” President Barack Obama seemingly downplayed the threat of ISIS in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that aired on Friday’s broadcast of “Good Morning America.”Obama is clueless.
Stephanopoulos asked Obama if ISIS was gaining in strength, to which Obama denied they were.
“I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” Obama responded. “What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave, but you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
It's bad for the world when the American president is weak.
It's bad having a president that is afraid to identify the enemy.
From Andrew McCarthy:
Fox just reported, relying on French news sources, that the terrorists carrying out the attack screamed, “This is for Syria” and the signature jihadist cry of “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is greater).We know the enemy well.

If only someone other than the terrorists had been armed in that concert hall, perhaps some lives would have been spared, perhaps dozens.
