Beckel was trying to defend the president after ISIS began its siege of Kobani in Syria. Lowry would have none of it.
Rich Lowry: Bob, in 2009, when President Obama took over, how much of Iraq did al-Qaeda in Iraq control? What territory?… Zero. Basically none. That was the situation. All President Obama had to do was hold that. It took a minimum effort… Do you know how many bombs we dropped Sunday and Monday in Syria when ISIS was sweeping into this town, was about to take another town on the Turkish border? Three. Three strikes. Three.
Bob Beckel: We waged a war in the Balkans all from airpower and we won(?) …We know there’s US personnel on the ground…
Rich Lowry: So is ISIS being rolled back? Where are they being rolled back? …One dam. What else? What town have they lost? They’re advancing in Syria. This is just reality. This is the problem with liberals supportive of President Obama. They haven’t been able to deal with reality for years. The reality is we are not winning against ISIS now.
