Michele Bachmann: White House Has Received Daily Security Briefs on ISIS FOR TWO YEARS (Video)
Rep. Michele Bachmann went On the Record on Monday to discuss the the ISIS crisis with Greta Van Susteren. Bachmann told Greta that the White House has been receiving security briefs for two years on the growing threat of ISIS in Iraq-Syria.
Greta Van Susteren: How long has that been know? Because Obama was quite flip and we keep hitting him over the head with this jayvee thing but there are huge consequences. We saw Fallujah fall and he still thought this was jayvee.
Rep. Michele Bachmann: The (House) committee has known about ISIS for well over two years. We saw the uptempo especially in the fall of last year. Well over a year…
Greta: If the committee knows it, I take it the people who are briefing the committee are the same people who work for President Obama. So what’s been the reason, has President Obama been trying to protect us by keeping it all quiet himself. Or has he been sort of cavalier and thinking this is the jayvee team?
Rep. Bachmann: I do know that all of this information was available to the White House.
