ISIS in Ramadi: Like the Tet 1968?

If Syria is — in the words of Al Arabiya’s Washington correspondent Nadia Bilbassy — likely to be remembered as Obama’s Rwanda, will the ISIS offensive now underway in Iraq go down as the president’s Tet? Their attack on the city of Ramadi caught the media by surprise and the first reports coming out of the city were tinged with an alarm born of shock.

    Tet was a crushing defeat of the VC/NVA. It was a political defeat of the US government caused by a commsymp press.

    • Very true, the MSM was the gatekeeper back then and perception was and is everything.

    Ramada has fallen to Islamic State. The word has come from several sources now.
