More insanity from the White House.
It seems President Obama will use any excuse to protect his cronies in the Islamic world. It doesn’t matter what intel he’s received on the region, or whether or not there are actual terrorists to be thwarted. He will protect them, regardless of what lie he has to tell.
We know that ISIS and the rest of Islamic terror have been funded by the sale of oil. The oil industry has been propping up Middle Eastern terror for decades.
They take our money and use it to kill us.
And although we have the means to cripple this vital source of revenue, Obama won’t do it for the stupidest reason imaginable…
The Obama administration has the capability to take out the vast oil infrastructure that fuels and funds the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), the richest terrorist group in modern history, but chooses not to, suggests the chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare.
“I’m told the President did not want to take out the [ISIS oil] trucks because there are some concerns with the environment,” said Pittenger, who also serves as the vice-chair of the Bipartisan Task Force to Investigate Terrorism Financing.
Although the U.S. military has struck ISIS oil assets, including refineries and tanker trucks used to transport oil, more can be done, proclaimed the North Carolina Republican.
Obama has been soft on terrorism since he was elected to the White House. This weakly veiled excuse is simply to prevent ISIS from being crippled financially. Why? Because toppling this terrible regime might upset other powers in the Middle East, powers Obama has been kowtowing to for years.
ISIS reportedly generates up to $1.3 million daily from its lucrative oil smuggling business, which yielded 45,000 barrels per day at its peak.
Over a MILLION dollars a day is going to the most hateful, dangerous group in the world. How could Obama or anyone in the government justify not blasting that cash cow to smithereens? Deprive ISIS of their money, you deprive them of the ability to acquire weapons, send agents overseas, or support their online network that is converting American citizens into terrorists.
Have we ever had a greater reason to brand Obama as a failure? He has consistently let the American people down, refusing to defend us from enemies overseas. This is surely the final straw.
