Obama’s War on ISIS: 3 out of 4 US Warplanes Return to Base With Bombs

In September 2014 Obama announced his War on ISIS.

“Our objective is clear. We will degrade and destroy ISIS.”

But eight months later we now learn that 3 out of 4 US warplanes return back to base with their bombs.
Richard Miniter at Forbes reported:

Three out of every four times that Obama dispatches American warplanes over Iraq, they return to base without dropping any bombs or firing any missiles.

“Seventy-five percent of the sorties that we’re currently running with our attack aircraft come back without dropping bombs, mostly because they cannot acquire the target or properly identify the target,” said U.S. Army General (ret) Jack Keane in testimony before the U.S. Senate last week.

That’s why White House and Pentagon briefers usually talk about the number of sorties, not the number of air strikes. The number of missions flown is four times larger than the number of bombing runs.
