OBAMA'S ISIS POLICY
OBAMA'S ISIS POLICY
President Obama is facing a major challenge against terrorist group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). Opponents claim he did not recognize the threat of ISIS early enough and as recently as fall of 2014 referred to them as an insignificant offshoot of Al-Qaeda. Advocates of President Obama’s ISIS policy argue that there are many terror cells and they are an ambiguous group without borders or firm leadership. In late 2014 the United States recognized the threat and led a barrage of airstrikes against ISIS and those airstrikes continue. Proponents of this strategy want to keep U.S. troops out of combat situations in a difficult environment. Opponents of the President’s strategy argue that the U.S. will not defeat ISIS without boots on the ground.
