Krauthammer on Lack of ISIS Strategy: 'Obama's Method Is to Always Blame Others'
President Barack Obama said Monday at the G7 economic summit that his administration is still working on a "complete strategy" to combat ISIS in Iraq.
"We don't yet have a complete strategy because it requires commitments on the part of the Iraqis, as well about how that recruitment takes place, how that training takes place," Obama said in Germany.
On "Special Report" tonight, Charles Krauthammer said that Obama occasionally stumbles on the truth, and this is a gaffe in which he spoke the truth.
"The reason is Obama's entire strategy rests on the notion that trained Iraqis under this government are going to carry the fight to ISIS," Krauthammer said, noting that strategy has failed in Mosul, Ramadi and Fallujah.
"This is a country that was abandoned by Obama in 2011 and threw in its lot with other players. And now we're trying to reclaim that. It cannot be done," Krauthammer said.
"The idea that he would now put the blame on the Pentagon for having lacked in offering him plans is exactly consistent with Obama's method, which is to always blame others."
