âI donât think theyâre gaining strength. What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them.â
Thatâs the word from Barack Obama just a few weeks ago. Then, Isis launched attacks in Paris and Obamaâs people tried to walk his comments back, suggesting that the President was making a small, targeted, and very specific point about geography. That didnât really fly either, but it was the last we heard from the administration about âcontainment.â
â¦Until yesterday, when Obamaâs own Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff decided to contradict the Presidentâs claim.
Correct. They appear to be in San Bernadino at this exact moment. Perhaps Pasadena.
I should think Obama might want to "revise and extend" his remarks: surely ISIS has made it to triple-A by now.
