Ron Johnson: ‘There Is No Strategy’ to Defeat ISIS

Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee said that “there is no strategy” to defeat ISIS on Monday’s “Kelly File” on the Fox News Channel.

“I’m not sure how much time President Obama will devote to the very serious threats facing this nation, but I think Americans in such uncertain times, first and foremost crave some safety, and security, and they’re craving leadership. They want a leader who will tell them the truth, that will actually be willing to face reality. And from my standpoint, actually put in place a strategy to accomplish the very goal that he stated, degrade, and ultimately defeat ISIS. The problem is we don’t exactly know what President Obama views as defeat of ISIS is. There is no strategy” he stated.

Johnson added that Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to France with a musical appearance from James Taylor “was just a cringe inducing moment. I could not watch the video, and I like James Taylor. It was just amateur hour in the White House. They should have gone to France. Megyn, we need leadership. We need to show the world that we are 100% committed, again to the goal that President Obama stated, degrade and ultimately defeat, not only ISIS, we have to defeat al Qaeda in Yemen. We’ve got to defeat Islamic terror wherever it shows up. And again, it’s showing up in more places.”
