France Will Lead From The Front, Not Behind


President Obama should take note of this. France has started aggressively bombing ISIS in Syria, the net result of which will be to prop up the Assad regime. That might not be such a bad option.

President Obama, just the other day, claimed ISIS was contained, which it was not. Leading from behind, the President just couldn’t see up ahead of him. France will now contain what Barack Obama has consistently underestimated and failed to contain.

Remember, not that long ago, CIA agents were complaining that Administration officials were forcing revisions to reports on ISIS to downplay the threat.

Now the whole work has seen exactly what a threat ISIS is. President Obama’s strategy to lead from behind is now being replaced by a French strategy to take on ISIS and kill them. Americans should be embarrassed by their President, whose policies and failures led to the terrorist attack in France.
