It’s absolutely shocking when we hear President Obama say that ISIS is losing ground. After every terrible attack in America or overseas in Europe, he gets before a crowd of cameras and claims this is only because ISIS has lost its footing and is growing desperate.
Even a child can see that is not true. These many attacks are proof that ISIS is expanding their reach. The attacks in San Bernardino and Orlando are proof that they are becoming more successful in recruiting lone wolf agents, thanks to their online efforts (come on Twitter, what the hell?).
Yet Obama keeps insisting we are winning the war.
New documents have leaked, however, that show he is utterly wrong. And he knows it.
From NBC News:
As the U.S. launched more airstrikes Tuesday against ISIS targets in Libya — representing an expansion of the U.S. military operations beyond Iraq and Syria — NBC News has exclusively obtained a map showing the global expansion of the terror group.
The map is part of a classified briefing document received by the White House dated “August 2016” and prepared by the National Counterterrorism Center. It shows a stunning three-fold increase in the number of places around the globe where ISIS is operating.
U.S. State Department documents indicated that in 2014, when the U.S. military began its campaign to destroy the extremists, there were only seven nations in which the fledgling state was operating.
By 2015, according to the State Department’s own numbers, there were nearly double that — 13 countries.
The map shows ISIS is now operating out of 18 countries, including six new places where they’re taking root. Their influence spans Africa, starting at Nigeria and Libya, continuing across the Middle East and getting as far as Indonesia in Asia. The new nations in which they are growing are: Egypt, Indonesia, Mali, the Philippines, Somalia and Bangladesh.
They even have a foothold in Europe in the Caucasus.
This flies in the face of everything Obama has said. A president who touts government transparency is clearly lying to the American public about this problem. ISIS is spreading like unchecked, rampant cancer, and all that our government can do is drop a few bombs.
This, as ISIS continues to set targets across Europe and the rest of the world.
It won’t come as a surprise if we learn Obama is intentionally trying to suppress this information. It clearly exposes him as a failure in regards to terrorism. In an election year, where he’s compelled to endorse his one-time rival Hillary Clinton, any and all failures in the Obama administration will reflect poorly on her.
God forbid he admit ISIS is a growing problem! Then maybe Americans will vote for someone that will actually do something about it!
It’s clear Obama and Clinton cannot truly defeat ISIS and radical Islamic terror. They had their chance and failed. It’s time we get a new leader in the White House and let him get a crack at it.
By that I mean Trump.
