O'Reilly Blasts Obama on ISIS: Sending 450 More U.S. Troops to Iraq Is Not a Plan
In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly sounded off on President Obama sending up to 450 additional U.S. troops to Iraq to boost local forces fighting ISIS.
O'Reilly pointed out that Obama's recent comments on not having a "complete strategy" to defeat the brutal terror group were criticized on Talking Points, by other media outlets and by members of Congress, including some of the president's fellow Democrats.
"There is no excuse in the world, none, why the U.S.A. does not have a plan to defeat these savages," O'Reilly said. "The hard truth is, despite ISIS expanding into at least five countries, President Obama has dithered and failed to lead the world against these mass murderers."
O'Reilly asserted that Obama is attempting to do damage control by sending a few hundred more U.S. military personnel to Iraq, bringing the total to just under 4,000.
O'Reilly said that the real place to confront ISIS isn't Iraq, but Syria, where the extremists control the city of Raqqa.
He said that Obama should take out the infrastructure of ISIS in Raqqa, while at the same time directly arming the Kurds with American weapons and continuing the bombing campaign in both Iraq and Syria.
"That's a plan. Sending a few hundred more folks into Iraq because you're embarrassed, Mr. President, not a plan."
