Pavlich: Obama 'Doing Nothing' to Change Course Amid New ISIS Threat to U.S.
ISIS warned Monday that countries who participate in the air campaign in Syria will also face attacks, threatening the U.S. capital specifically.
The message to countries involved in what it called the "crusader campaign" was delivered by a man dressed in fatigues and a turban, and identified in subtitles as Al Ghareeb the Algerian.
"We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day, God willing, like France's and by God, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington," the man said.
President Obama, however, has not announced any change in the U.S. policy in Syria.
Martha MacCallum discussed the current strategy this morning with Katie Pavlich and Mary Anne Marsh.
Pavlich said ISIS wants to strike in the U.S. and has people who can carry it out.
"The president - who, by the way, Hillary Clinton served under - is doing nothing to change his policy. Over the weekend, just to give an idea of how this administration is taking the overall war on terror seriously: they transferred five Gitmo detainees to another country because they want to empty Gitmo," said Pavlich.
She said the choice comes down to wanting to win the war on terror or "burying your head in the sand" until an attack happens in the United States.
Marsh noted that Obama was elected on a platform of ending wars not starting them. But she said Hillary Clinton has made a distinction in her policy, saying Saturday that ISIS must be "defeated" not contained.
