We all know that President Barack Obama is a liar and a fraud, and a majority of Americans have already dismissed him as a complete failure, particularly when it comes to foreign policy.
One thing that we know for sure is that Obama has repeatedly lied about the largest group of radical Islamic terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
He has lied about everything, including denying even knowing about their existence and rise, whether or not it was his decision to pull troops out of Iraq, how many troops he is sending back to Iraq, how he will arm the “moderate” Syrian rebels, and the scope of the air war against the radical jihadists.
Obama promised numerous times that there would be “no boots on the ground,” despite pleas to the contrary from our military leaders. Of course we all knew that was provably untrue, so the narrative evolved to say that our “advisers” wouldn’t be engaging in combat in Iraq.
However, some of our “advisers” have in fact engaged in ground combat with the radicals who call themselves the Islamic States.
There are reports coming from several different sources which claim that U.S. Special Forces recently engaged in ground combat missions, something Obama promised wouldn’t be happening.
There aren’t many details about the engagement, other than an Islamic State unit moved on an Iraqi army base where some U.S. troops were located. The American troops, backed up by F-18 fighter/bombers, turned away the radical Islamists after a two-hour clash, much to the delight of local tribal leaders (H/T Western Journalism).
Sheikh Mahmud Nimrawi, a prominent tribal leader in the region, said that “U.S. forces intervened because of ISIS started to come near the base, which they are stationed in so out of self-defense, they responded, welcoming the U.S. intervention, which I hope will ‘not be the last.’”
Although the Pentagon has not yet confirmed these reports, they appear credible, as simple logic and reason dictate that if you send military troops to an active combat zone, they will likely face combat at some point.
President Obama is a liar and a fraud who is attempting to micromanage the military response to the brutally horrific Islamic State jihadists. The sooner Obama allows the military to do what everyone knows needs to be done, the sooner our troops can really come home victorious.
