Now this was weird.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf Wednesday acknowledged that the Obama administration has been “looking at” the ISIL terrorists for about a year, without apparently doing anything serious about them.
We’ve been looking at that for months and month, even before the latest offensives that started against Mosul – for a year or so now – we’ve been looking very closely at how you confront them in the long term.
Really? What hubris. Does she not realize that “looking at” a group of terrorists take over half of Iraq and establish a caliphate might constitute a foreign policy failure, or rather, utter incompetence?
Yes, I’ve been looking at the wolves devour the lambs for several days now, said the sheep dog.
I gather John Kerry was busy with other things, like combating global warming and trying to win a Nobel Peace prize by solving the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.
Hopefully, he’s taking another look.
