Over the past few weeks, the world has been rocked by an unprecedented number of terrorist attacks around the world. These attacks, carried out by the Islamic State terror group, have killed hundreds of people and it is widely believed that more attacks will be coming soon.
Many people have blamed President Obama’s failed foreign policy for the rise of the Islamic State error group, and CIA Director John Brennan seems to agree with these accusations, according to Time magazine.
In a speech given right after the Paris terror attack in November, Brennan explained how the Islamic State terror group was “decimated” under the previous administration, but has grown quite significantly under Obama.
Here are some of Brennan’s remarks from the Conservative Tribune:
“It was, you know, pretty much decimated when U.S. forces were there in Iraq. It had maybe 700 or so adherents left. And then it grew quite a bit in the last several years, when it split then from al-Qaida in Syria, and set up its own organization.”
While he didn’t explicitly say the words “Bush” and “Obama,” it is pretty easily inferred from his remarks. U.S. forces were in Iraq under Bush, and then left under Obama. And this also supports the perception that Obama is a Muslim (or at the least is a Muslim sympathizer) because he’s been unwilling to attack Muslim terrorists in the Middle East.
Do you agree with Director Brennan’s remarks?
