While Obama continues to assure the world and Americans that he is forcefully fighting ISIS and insisting that he has them “contained,” U.S. military pilots that have been actively fighting came back and revealed the shocking TRUTH about what Obama has really been doing.
The truth is, the Obama Administration has been blocking them from bombing 75% of their targets!
This news was revealed after the horrific attacks in Paris by the Muslim terrorist group ISIS that left 130 dead, many wounded and a country in shock and grieving.
Vladimir Putin responded immediately and ordered his warships to co-operate with the French military as both countries launched revenge attacks on ISIS targets. Moscow’s warplanes have carried out a staggering 394 sorties in just the last three days, hitting 731 rebel targets across Syria.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that strikes against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) targets are often blocked due to an Obama administration policy to prevent civilian deaths and collateral damage, according to Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
The policy is being blamed for allowing Islamic State militants to gain strength across Iraq and continue waging terrorist strikes throughout the region and beyond, according to Royce and former military leaders who spoke Wednesday about flaws in the U.S. campaign to combat the Islamic State.
“You went 12 full months while ISIS was on the march without the U.S. using that air power and now as the pilots come back to talk to us they say three-quarters of our ordnance we can’t drop, we can’t get clearance even when we have a clear target in front of us,” Royce said.
“I don’t understand this strategy at all because this is what has allowed ISIS the advantage and ability to recruit,” he added.
The Pentagon defended Obama’s policy saying, “The bottom line is that we will not stoop to the level of our enemy and put civilians more in harm’s way than absolutely necessary,” adding that the military often conducts flights “and don’t strike anything.”
“The fact that aircraft go on missions and don’t strike anything is not out of the norm,” the official said. “Despite U.S. strikes being the most precise in the history of warfare, conducting strike operations in the heavily populated areas where ISIL hides certainly presents challenges. We are fighting an enemy who goes out of their way to put civilians at risk.”
Jack Keane, a retired four-star U.S. general, agreed with Royce and blames Obama for issuing orders that severely constrain the U.S. military from combating terror forces.
“This has been an absurdity from the beginning,” Keane said in response to questions from Royce. “The president personally made a statement that has driven air power from the inception.”
“When we agreed we were going to do airpower and the military said, this is how it would work, he [Obama] said, ‘No, I do not want any civilian casualties,’” Keane explained. “And the response was, ‘But there’s always some civilian casualties. We have the best capability in the world to protect from civilians casualties.’”
However, Obama’s response was, “No, you don’t understand. I want no civilian casualties. Zero,’” Keane continued. “So that has driven our so-called rules of engagement to a degree we have never had in any previous air campaign from desert storm to the present.”
The truth is that Obama has not been doing all he can to stop ISIS, if anything he has been assisting them and lying to the world and the American people. Instead of the United States leading the fight against ISIS, Obama has us looking weak and leaderless.
The only thing that Barack Obama cares about is his precious Muslim refugees gaining access to the United States. There are 100,000 Syrian Muslim refugees scheduled to be placed in 180 U.S. cities.
