On Wednesday’s “Good Morning America” on ABC, network White House correspondent Jon Karl pointed out the mixed messages President Barack Obama has sent in deal with ISIS in that in the same set of remarks he conveyed two different takes on the radical terrorist group.
“Very definitively, this is beyond where he’s gone,” Karl said. “But there seemed to be a mixed message there because when he was asked to clarify if what he is now saying if the U.S. wants to destroy ISIS, he backtracked significantly saying, ‘We can continue to shrink ISIS’s sphere of influence to the point where it is a manageable problem.’ So in the course of one set of remarks, he went from talking about destroying this terrorist group to making it into a manageable problem.”
