But he ignored it to be re-elected
The President of the United States is willing to watch people around the world die for his own political gain.
That’s the only way to read his foreign policy, and it’s certainly the only way to read comments from Lt. General Michael Flynn, the former top military intelligence official in the Obama administration. On Monday, Flynn told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the White House purposefully ignored all information on the rise of ISIS because it would have hurt Obama politically to recognize it. “I think that they did not meet a narrative the White House needed,” Flynn said. “And I’ll be very candid with you, they just didn’t….I think the narrative was that al Qaeda was on the run, and (Osama) bin Laden was dead….They’re dead and these guys are, we’ve beaten them.”
