In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly reacted to the latest developments in the fight against the Islamic State, including the U.S. finally attacking ISIS on the ground and the terror group's capture of a key Iraqi city.

"At the same time ISIS was being confronted by the Americans, the Iraqi army was retreating from an ISIS attack on the town of Ramadi, which is now under ISIS control," O'Reilly said.

"The brutal truth is that the Obama administration and the entire world have allowed the ISIS savages to gain power and murder thousands of innocent people," O'Reilly said. "They are not hiding in the mountains of Pakistan. They are an organized army fighting a ground war in Syria and Iraq. Yet the world stands by and does not really care."

"The Factor" host said there are two major ways that ISIS and Iraq may influence the upcoming presidential election. First, Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State when President Obama pulled U.S. troops out of Iraq, which she'll have to deal with. Second, Republican candidates such as Jeb Bush have struggled to answer if it was the right decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

"Talking Points believes history will judge that both President Bush and President Obama made serious mistakes in Iraq," O'Reilly said. "So now, the USA has to deal with a new terror threat, ISIS. But because the nation has been exhausted by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, many of us lack the will to do so."

"But the next President must, or face ongoing terror violence that will be staggering."
