Obama Ties America's 'Occupying Forces' to 'Feeding Extremism'

Obama Ties America's 'Occupying Forces' to 'Feeding Extremism'

Monday at the American Legion’s 96th National Convention, President Barack Obama said the answer for ISIS’s “evolving terrorist threat” is not for America to “occupy” countries and end up “feeding extremism.”

Obama said, “ISIS in Iraq underscores how we have to meet  todays evolving terrorist threat.”

“The answer is not to send in large scale military deployments that over stretch our military, and lead for us occupying countries for a long period of time and end up feeding extremism.”

“Rather our military action in Iraq has to be part of a broader strategy to protect our people and support our partners to take the fight to ISIS,” he added.
