Welcome back to reality, Mr. President.

For those paying attention, the core of ISIL was formerly known as “Al Qaeda in Iraq.”
And some more history for those not paying attention to the Iraq War from 2003-2010: Al Qaeda in Iraq got its ass kicked by the US military. It was baby steps at first, and then it was in earnest from “The Surge” onwards. Who championed this “Surge”? He’s now a painter in Texas. What the surge accomplished- against virtually every voiced opinion put out by the wizened sages in Foggy Bottom, Democrat activists at CIA and all the panjandrums that were part of the Iraq Study Group- was very much like the objectives announced a little over a week ago by our peace prize Nobel Laureate President.

Your Say

Al Qaeda, Taliban, ISIL.
A pattern has been established, but the shell game is the same. Don't look at the shells, watch the eyes.

"... the effective deployment of a counter-terrorism strategy to put continual pressure on extremist groups that seek to do harm to the United States ..."

It is as simple as that. Follow the lead of the White House Press Secretary, until another rabbit can be chased up. Life span of any of these responses to crises is measured in hours.
