CNN's Amanpour: US 'Non-Intervention' Allowed ISIS to Flourish

CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour argued that the “vacuum” created by US non-intervention and failure to leave a residual force led to the rise of ISIS on Tuesday’s “CNN Newsroom.”

“Most certainly…doing nothing for the last three years has brought us here, the vacuum that’s been created by a non-intervention policy is what has allowed Syria to flourish with these ISIS and Jabhat Al- Nusra, as Peter Neumann said, and now Khorasan, and withdrawing the residual force from Iraq is what allowed the dysfunctional politics there to become a national security threat and the rise of ISIS there” she said.
