President Obama's pronouncements about ISIS are often directly contradicted by his own top advisers.

Fox and Friends highlighted just some of these stark contrasts, displaying President Obama's own statements alongside those of his own top officials, like the heads of the military, FBI, CIA and national intelligence.

The latest example came last week on Capitol Hill when CIA Director John Brennan delivered a sobering assessment of the ISIS threat. He said ISIS still has a large fighting force and is sending operatives to launch attacks in the West.

Brennan said that despite battlefield setbacks in Iraq and Syria, ISIS's ability to carry out global attacks - as it did in Paris and Brussels - has not diminished.

His testimony came just 48 hours after Obama declared that ISIS is "under more pressure than ever before" and that the campaign against ISIS is "firing on all cylinders."

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.) reacted this morning, explaining that the president has for years "denied the existence" of the radical Islamic ideology behind terrorism.

Flynn, who served as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 to 2014, said that ISIS is executing a campaign that was laid out years ago when it declared war on the United States.

Part of that campaign plan is not only the execution of this massive immigration problem that exists in Europe, but also direct attacks here in the homeland that we just recently saw again in Orlando. ... I mean, my God, how many times do we have to have these attacks where somebody is yelling 'Allahu Akbar' and attacking us for a distorted religious belief system?

Watch the interview with Gen. Flynn below.
