Talk radio host and author of “The Liberty Amendments,” Mark Levin, called for a commission to investigate the failure of the US government to anticipate the rise of ISIS on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
Levin argued the Obama administration’s attempts to shift blame for the failure to anticipate the rise of ISIS onto the intelligence community were evidence of a “full blown cover-up.” He then said “I’ll tell you exactly what we can do. It is time, once and for all, to find a leader in the United States Congress who will stand up. It’s not going to be Boehner, because he won’t stand up, but somebody has to stand up, call for a commission, find out, get to the bottom of this while he’s still president, not 30 years from now when everybody’s looking back and wringing their hands.”
Levin also slammed President Obama for has failure to anticipate ISIS’ strength, stating “have you noticed nothing really works under this president? From the Secret Service, to immigration, to the economy. Gee, I wonder why that is. Could it be because he’s a radical liberal? I don’t know. Now all that said, Sean, the fact of the matter is the president’s briefing book, I am certain, contained an enormous amount of information going way back about the Islamo[fascist]s and the spread of terrorism in the Middle East and what’s going on today, he doesn’t read his briefing books. He doesn’t attend his briefings, and I say enough is enough.” And “the fact of the matter is he’s not paying attention to his job. He’s not attentive to what a president’s supposed to be attentive to because he’s so busy revolutionizing our economy and our government and transforming it. He’s not doing his job.”
