House Intel Cmte. Chairman: No Plan to Stop Spread of ISIS in N. Africa
The United States’ Arab allies reportedly say that the White House is ignoring the spread of ISIS.
In recent weeks, ISIS loyalists launched attacks in Egypt and stormed the capital of Libya, killing an American. Just this week, President Barack Obama said the U.S. is doing everything possible to fight ISIS.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes was on “The Kelly File” tonight exclusively to sound off.
Megyn Kelly asked Nunes if Obama is doing everything he can to defeat ISIS.
“Nothing could be further from the truth,” he said. “In fact, he’s not even admitting who the enemy is or where the enemy is even located.”
Nunes said that ISIS is all over North Africa and that there’s no plan in place to deal with that.
“It’s what I like to call strategic incoherence,” he said.
Nunes explained that a lot of ISIS fighters are coming from North America, then transiting back and causing problems in places like Egypt and Libya. He said that the Egyptians and Libyans want the State Department and U.S. government to admit that there’s a problem.
“If it wouldn’t have been for two reporters getting their heads cut off, I don’t think this White House would have ever engaged, and our closest allies in Iraq, […] the Kurds, would have been completely overrun," Nunes said.
