GOP Rep: Obama Does Not Hold to Idea of We Don’t Negotiate with Terror

On Monday’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) took aim at the Obama administration for its handling of the war on the terror.

According to Kinzinger, President Barack Obama’s goals aren’t achievable in the short term in the world in which we live.

“Look, here’s the reality — the administration is trying to unilaterally withdraw from the war on terror,” Kinzinger said. “I mean that’s obviously happening. Al Qaeda doesn’t know that. ISIS doesn’t think the war is over, but the administration, the president made it clear he wants the legacy getting America out of war. The problem is you can’t wish and unicorn and rainbows in a world that does not exist. And right now, we live in a dangerous world that wants to kill all of us sitting here and all your viewers because of what we believe in.”

Kinzinger went on to comment on this administration’s tactics, including the swap for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

“I think so. The latest one, there’s more information to come out we have to know, but it’s very obvious that this administration does not hold to the idea of we don’t negotiate,” he added.
