Bolton: Obama So Blinded By Ideology He Can’t See We Are Losing to ISIS

This weekend on “Fox News Sunday,” former Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton said the Obama administration is losing to ISIS because “they are blinded by their own ideology.”

When asked about President Barack Obama’s claim last week that we are not losing to ISIS in Iraq and Syria Bolton said, “I think they’re in denial. I don’t think that’s anything new. I think they’ve been in denial about the war on terror the last six plus years. They don’t want to admit we are in a war. They would rather treat it as a law enforcement matter. That is palpably wrong. I think their unwillingness to understand the nature of the ideological threats we face from the likes of ISIS, paralyzes their ability to win. And we are losing there is no doubt about it.”

He added, “I think they are blinded by their own ideology. They see this as something that would inevitably lead to more American involvement and they don’t want to do it. They simply will not acknowledge that ISIS is a threat.”
