'A Void of U.S. Leadership': Gen. Flynn Says Our Anti-Terror Strategy Isn't Working
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.) said on "Fox and Friends" today that the Brussels terror attacks were likely avoidable if the United States had a more effective anti-terror strategy.
Flynn, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said that we're at war with a political ideology that's hiding behind the cloak of "radical Islam."
He said we need to stop apologizing like we're going after some religion or religious ideology, and deal with the problem in a more mature and comprehensive way.
"We have to quit kidding ourselves about what we're facing," Flynn said.
He explained that the problem is that there is "a void of U.S. leadership" under the Obama administration, and our strategy in the Middle East is piecemeal and uncoordinated.
"I think it's time for a new administration."
