Levin on Obama ISIS Policy: 'We're Surrounded by Knuckleheads'

Talk radio host and author of “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic,” Mark Levin criticized the Obama administration’s ISIS policy by declaring “we’re surrounded by knuckleheads, and the problem is, they’re supposed to be protecting the country” on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

“For him, the truth is, it’s about politics. It’s about containing this issue politically, for him, so he can focus on fundamentally transforming America, and this is a very serious matter to understand. So the generals and the military see this quite differently than our very political president, who really doesn’t want to defeat this enemy,” Levin stated.

He also argued “I honestly don’t think he [Obama] gives a damn. As hard as it is to believe. How else do you explain him not securing the southern border? How else do you explain him being on vacation as this is breaking out? … The fact of the matter is if this is a war and we want victory, we can defeat them. We can wipe these cockroaches out. If he wants to do something short of that, obviously he can, but I think it’s time for Mr. Boehner and Mr. McConnell, and people to rise up and say ‘we want to know if you want victory, if you’re going to call this a war, we will do a declaration of war, but we’re not going to piddle around like this for political reasons.’”
