Obama has finally admitted that is was bad US foreign policy that created ISIS, so why is he carrying out the same exact policy?
In an interview with Vice News (who sold out to the tune of about 70 million dollars from Rupert Murdoch‘s 21st Century Fox), Barack Obama actually admitted that the rise of ISIS was because of the US Government.
Instead of admitting such things as the fact that the ‘moderate rebels’ he funded joined ISIS, or admitting his own role in the rise of ISIS, he blamed George Bush; but hey, it’s still a step in the direction of admitting what is incredibly obvious. Or is it?
Obama said, “Two things: one is, ISIS is a direct outgrowth of al-Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion. Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.” and “We’ve got a 60 country coalition. We will slowly push back Isis out of Iraq”, “I’m confident that will happen.”
Really, this is no kind of admission, this is more like a subversive and insidious tactic of ignoring more glaring examples of the US supporting ISIS.
He could have mentioned that the US military ‘accidentally’ dropped supplies to ISIS, or the fact that the military has hit key pieces of Syrian infrastructure such as grain reserves. There sure have been a lot of convenient accidents. Maybe he could have mentioned that he thought of ISIS has terrorism’s JV team until they started threatening oil hubs in Iraq.
Perhaps the most troubling aspect of this admission is that Obama knows that it was Bush’s flawed foreign policy tactics that led to the rise of ISIS, yet he carries out basically the same exact policies.
Maybe Obama will be admitting more things as his final term comes to an end.
However, it’s much more likely that he will not, and instead will insidiously make it appear as if he’s making some huge admission when actually he is leading people into believing falsehoods.
Barack Obama’s statements are by definition lying by omission.
