Pentagon Says OBAMA Was Wrong: It’s NOT ISIL, IT’S ISIS! (Video)

Pentagon Officially Designates The Proper Name To The Enemy

During a Friday briefing, Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said that the Pentagon had officially switched the name of the Islamic terrorist group, ISIL, to ISIS according to Fox News.

Changing the name from ISIL to ISIS was important for the Pentagon to do for a few different reasons. Under the Obama administration the preferred acronym was ISIL, which stands for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

From The Independent:

The undefined region around Syria is historically referred to as the Levant; it includes Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Palestine, and Jordan. This name shows that the militants want their area of control to go beyond Iraq.

By calling the terrorist organization ISIL, Obama was giving the group added credibility in the eyes of the Islamic world because the group’s stated goal “is to restore an Islamic state, or caliphate, in this entire area.”

From The American Thinker:

His [Obama’s] use of ISIL could be a strong indication that he supports re-establishing Muslim rule and sharia law throughout the Levant, and good riddance to Israel.

However an even bigger reason why Obama wanted to use the term ISIL instead of ISIS is because of what ISIS stands for: Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

From The Independent:

Nonetheless, some in the US media claim that the President is using “Isil” to avoid using the word “Syria” which is what the “S” stands for in Isis. They say that talking about “attacking Syria” is tricky for the US government, after Mr Obama refused to send troops into the country to intervene in the civil war against President Bashar al-Assad.

Obama didn’t want people to think about Syria because of the outright disaster that his administration and the Hillary Clinton State Department helped create.
