Krauthammer on WH Calling ISIS Strategy Successful: ‘Either Delusional or Cynical’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer reacted to remarks from White House press secretary Josh Earnest in which he suggested the U.S. strategy to defeat ISIS was successful.

According to Krauthammer, the Obama administration was “either delusional or cynical” for offering those remarks.

“I would hope cynical, because otherwise we’re in deep trouble,” Krauthammer said. “This is a tremendous defeat. This isn’t only a geographic defeat, the fact that Mosul is gone, Fallujah is gone and now Ramadi is gone. It’s that the Iraqi army once again ran.”

“Our whole idea is that we will train the Iraqi army,” he added. “If you train people who want to fight, but don’t know how to fight, that will work.”
