The United States has halted the course of the Islamic State group, President Barack Obama said in remarks broadcast Friday, calling for a stepped up drive to “completely decapitate” the militants’ operations.
I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” said Obama. “From the start, our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq.”
Goodness…what an untimely bit of nonsense…and are we sure decapitate is exactly the term we want to use under the circumstances?
