Van Susteren to Obama: Denial and Hope Are Not Strategies
“President Obama has a fatal flaw, and it is clouding his thinking,” Greta Van Susteren said tonight in her “Off the Record” commentary. “He thinks the war is over.”
While Van Susteren said that everyone wants the war to be over, it’s not.
"No matter how much he wants it, I want it or you want the war over, once in a war with people still trying to kill you, hoping it is over or a unilateral declaration that the war is over does not end it. You are fooling yourself if you think it does,” she said.
Van Susteren said that war only ends “if you annihilate your enemy out of existence” or if both sides agree the war is over. But just this week, ISIS threatened to behead Obama. Yesterday, the Taliban murdered three Americans in Kabul.
“When your enemy is still killing you, it is war,” she said.
While people can debate whether or not the U.S. should have gotten into this war, Van Susteren noted that such a debate is 14 years too late.
“The president needs to get out of denial. Denial is not a strategy. And he needs to quit hoping the war is over – hope is not a strategy either,” she said.
Van Susteren warned, “Denying reality is dangerously spinning our wheels into deeper disaster.”
