Everyone Who Works For Obama is Scared to Say War
Obama is scared of the word “war” and so is everyone who works for him.
Back in August, state department spokeswoman Marie Harf insisted that ISIL is not at war with America even as ISIL members claimed they were.
Today, less than 24 hours after Obama’s ISIS speech, Secretary of State John Kerry also insisted we’re not at war with ISIS.
Kerry: U.S. not at war with ISIS
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration’s strategy includes “many different things that one doesn’t think of normally in context of war.”
“What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counterterrorism operation,” Kerry told CNN’s Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. “It’s going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it’s a major counterterrorism operation that will have many different moving parts.”
In the 1983 film Risky Business, one character delivers this line to Tom Cruise…
Say what the fuck. If you can’t say it, you can’t do it.
The same rule applies in war, whether the Obama administration likes it or not.
