Santorum: Obama’s ISIS Policy ‘Helping ISIS,’ Sounds Like He’s ‘In Cahoots’ With Their Strategy

Republican presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum argued President Obama’s ISIS policy, “sounds like President Obama is in cahoots with the strategy of ISIS to maintain their territorial integrity,” “provides the greatest recruitment tool for ISIS,” and is “helping ISIS every single day” in an interview on Wednesday’s “Kilmeade & Friends” on Fox News Radio.

Santorum said of President Obama’s criticism of some of the GOP opponents of his refugee plan, “It was despicable. You wonder how low this president can go in his mischaracterization, his depiction of anybody that opposes him, and taking the most extreme and lowest form of rhetoric that this president has deployed. He’s despicable, he’s delusional, and what’s causing the problem. ISIS isn’t fighting us because we won’t take Syrian refugees, ISIS is fighting us because they hate everything we believe in. ISIS is fighting us because in their holy books it says their job is to conquer the infidels, in which we are one. That’s why ISIS is fighting us. But we have a president who won’t even say the word ‘Islam,’ won’t even say the word ‘jihadist.’ This is a president who uses the term ‘ISIS’ and he doesn’t even realize he’s talking about the Islamic state when he says the word ‘ISIS.’ So, he even admits in his own rhetoric, that Islam is part of it, but again, it’s a delusional disconnect, and so what he has to do, in his fantasy world, is accuse people of things that well, they’re not advocating. No one is afraid of widows and orphans. A widow and orphan did not blow up or kill people in Paris a weekend ago. It was an ISIS plant within these groups of refugees who are coming to kill, and destroy, and pursue terror among the West, to destroy the infidel. That’s what they’re doing.”

When asked if he was “concerned that France had to go to Russia for help?” Santorum answered, “I’m not surprised. I mean, Russia is at least leading. This president has been following, this president makes excuses for not acting, and if you look at what this president has done with ISIS, it is the worst foreign policy in the history of America. The president’s policy toward ISIS is to contain ISIS, ISIS’ policy, in order to gain credibility as a caliphate in the Middle East, and around the world, is to maintain their territorial integrity. Just let me repeat that. The president’s policy is to keep ISIS within their bounds. ISIS’ objective is to keep their territorial integrity. Now what does that sounds like? It sounds like President Obama is in cahoots with the strategy of ISIS to maintain their territorial integrity, and he doesn’t realize by having this strategy, he provides the greatest recruitment tool for ISIS, which is, America is fighting us and we are maintaining our territorial integrity, and we are winning this battle. The president is helping ISIS every single day by the policies we have, and he doesn’t even know it, because he refuses to accept the reality that ISIS is a caliphate. ISIS is using a seventh century textbook to operate this war, and unless we understand it, and we find a strategy against it, we are going to lose this battle.”
