Engel: Military Officials Apoplectic Over Obama 'No' ISIS Strategy Admission

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel said President Barack Obama’s comments last week that the United States doesn’t have a “strategy” to go after ISIS in Syria made military commanders “apoplectic.”

Engel said, “I spoke to military commanders, officials, they are apoplectic. They think this is a clear and present danger. They think something needs to be done. One official said it’s a freudian slip. It shows how the United States does not have a policy to deal with Syria, even when you have ISIS, which has effectively become a terrorist army, roughly 20,000 strong.” 

“To a large degree the administration’s policy has been to ignore Syria, ignore it until the horrors there become too barbaric to stomach.” he added.

Engel concluded by saying, ‘The build-up of ISIS in Iraq and Syria was incredibly predictable.”
