We DO have a strategy to fight ISIS, the president didn’t really mean to say we don’t, claims State Department

President Barack Obama does have a strategy to defeat ISIS, the State Department says, and wasn’t suggesting he didn’t during yesterday’s press conference after the G7 conference.

‘We do have a strategy, the president was referring to a specific plan to improve training and equipping of the Iraqi security forces,’ John Kirby, State’s spokesman, said this morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program.

The Obama administration official was seeking to discredit Republicans who, following the president’s remarks yesterday, claimed that Obama lacks a ‘robust’ strategy to eliminate the terrorist group, as they’ve been saying all along.

At the White House, later on Tuesday afternoon, the building’s top spokesman, Josh Earnest, said the president was being ‘very direct’ about a topic that’s been under discussion for weeks now.

    The only viable strategy is plague.

    • Obama’s plan (to help Islamic expansion) is working just the way he wants it to.

      Only the kafirs are too stupid to understand and question it.

    This would have sounded more promising had it been delivered by josh earnest.

    • Brett_McS

      Whenever I hear the name Josh Earnest I think of the Australian actor Yahoo Serious. I think they’re about on the same intellectual level.

  • Scaramouche

    His strategy is to have no strategy and punt the problem to the next POTUS.

  • Surele Surele

    We do have a strategy. POTUS simply was lost without the teleprompter.

    Blame the Jews
    Blame White People
    Blame Global Warming
    Blame the Republicans

    Problem solved.

      I am blaming Mike Duffy. ISIS just might be his fault, too!

    This so called “President” couldn’t run a cookie factory. He is in so far over his head that he is a laughing stock throughout the world. Absolutely nobody takes him seriously. Even that idiot in North Korea has called Obama a buffoon. Putin laughs at him. ISIS love him, however.

    Obama has got to rank as one of, if not THE worst President of all time. This jerk was elected for only two reasons, he is black and Oprah liked him.

    An unmitigated disaster.

    Josh is just doing his job…. covering for Obama on those rare occasions when he tells the truth.
