CNN Contributor: “ISIS Will Laugh” at Obama’s Oval Office Terror Speech (Video)
Even CNN analysts panned Obama’s terror-gun control speech last night.
Michael Weiss, co-author of “ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror” and Daily Beast writer, eviscerated Barack Obama after his terror speech on Sunday night.
Michael Weiss told Wolf Blitzer how ISIS will respond to Obama’s speech – they’ll laugh.
“I think they’ll laugh, frankly… We’re actually not winning this war… His head is in the clouds if he thinks this current strategy is going to succeed.”
Weiss went off on Obama.
What followed was nearly three-minutes of uninterrupted excoriation of the President that began with Weiss answering Blitzer’s question by stating flatly that “I think they’ll laugh, frankly” as what “heard in the President’s remarks self-congratulation and cheerleading.” Tearing into the President’s so-called strategy, Weiss exposed the disconnect between Obama and his own military advisers:
Look Wolf, when the President came out and said ISIS has been contained and he was speaking to the geographical expanse of their so-called caliphate, last week, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff repudiated those remarks and said no, actually, they’re not contained, we’ve had tactical victories on the battlefield but, strategically, ISIS is very much on the front foot.
Weiss explained how U.S. warplanes are returning from ISIS strikes with “75 percent of their payloads” remaining and alluding to reports that the President’s military leaders have been cooking the books on intelligence then tore into Obama’s failure to address the issue of Islamic radicalization.
ISIS’s threat with respect top these new attacks, the president said this is a new evolving thing, self-radicalization. The first year into his presidency, Wolf, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the so-called underpants bomber, tried to blow up an airliner in the skies above Detroit. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was radicalizing while he was sitting at University College in Great Britain. We’ve been dealing with this menace for a decade now. There’s nothing evolved here.
