McFarland: Obama 'Just Not Up to the Job' of Defeating ISIS
Following President Obama’s remarks on the Paris terror attacks, Fox News national security analyst K.T. McFarland said that Obama is “just not up to the job” of defeating ISIS.
Obama spoke this morning from the G-20 Summit in Turkey, where he rejected the idea that a large-scale deployment of American troops in Syria is the answer.
At one point, the president called Friday's attacks a "setback" but touted the current strategy that is in place to combat ISIS in Syria.
"There will be an intensification of the strategy that we put forward. But the strategy that we put forward is the strategy that is going to work. It’s going to take time," he said.
McFarland pushed back, arguing that radical Islam, whether in the form of ISIS, al-Qaeda or other groups, is “the existential threat of our time.”
“It affects all of Western civilization, the same way fascism did in World War II, the same way Communism did in the Cold War.
“What we need now are Churchill, we need FDR, we need Reagan, we need Thatcher, we need a pope. But we don’t have any of that in President Obama.”
McFarland said she wanted to hear a "we are prepared do whatever it takes" type of statement from the president.
