Krauthammer Blasts Obama's ISIS Strategy: 'This Is a Joke'
Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a House Armed Services Committee hearing today that ISIS has not been "contained."
The admission runs counter to the claim made by President Obama last month in an interview when he was asked about the status of the anti-ISIS campaign.
On "Special Report," Charles Krauthammer pointed out that during the hearing, Dunford was asked whether the U.S. considers the drivers of ISIS oil trucks enemy combatants. Dunford answered that he did not, saying those are civilians trying to feed their families.
"That's why we actually drop leaflets warning the drivers three-quarters of an hour before any airstrike," Krauthammer explained. "This is a joke."
He added that this rule of engagement comes from the White House, not the Pentagon.
"This has not been a serious air war, and all the promises that, 'Oh yes, now we're going to get serious,' I think are a joke as long as this president is commander-in-chief."
