Top general: 'Islamists embedded in White House?'

'The president has elected not to get serious' on ISIS

Published: 2 hours ago


In the wake of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, beheading 21 Coptic Christians in Libya, retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Tom McInerney is slamming the Obama administration for failing to take obvious military steps to destroy the terrorists and identify radical Islam as the motivating factor for the atrocities committed throughout the region.

McInerney is a Vietnam veteran and rose to the No. 3 position in the Air Force during his career in uniform. He is now a Fox News military analyst.

On Sunday, ISIS released a new video depicting the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt on a beach in Libya.

U.S.-led airstrikes have been aimed at ISIS since August, after the terrorists beheaded American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. However, McInerney said the operations could be far more intense and would quickly cripple the enemy if done right.

“I think the air campaign is not nearly the intensity we needed,” McInerney said. “It’s not even an air campaign. It’s somewhere between seven and 15 sorties a day when we absolutely need upward of 100-200 sorties a day. I’m calling for 200. We need to be attacking the ISIS capital of Raqqa (Syria) 24/7. We need to close the highway between Raqqa and Mosul, Iraq.”

He said those steps would quickly tighten the noose around ISIS.

“Nothing can move on that highway,” he said. “If it’s moving, we’ll destroy it. We’ll kill their commerce. We’ll kill their ability to feed people in their ‘Islamic State.’ That’s going to require between 100-200 sorties a day, plus we’re going to need constant surveillance reconnaissance assets over the area.”

McInerney added, “Let’s get serious on this. The president has elected not to get serious. The Pentagon wants to do this, but the White House is holding back.”

Listen to the WND/Radio America interview with retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Tom McInerney:

Another concern inside Iraq is the fate of 300 U.S. Marines and the Iraqi forces they are training at the Al Asad military base in Anbar Province of Iraq. Reports conflict over what danger ISIS forces pose near the facility. Pentagon officials publicly state they are not at all worried about the safety of U.S. and Iraqi forces. McInerney isn’t so sure and said this is another issue that could easily be resolved with decisive action.

“We need to put a Global Hawk or a Reaper (drone) overhead between Al-Asad and the town that they captured, al Baghdadi,” he said. “Anything that moves out of al-Baghdadi toward Al-Asad should be destroyed. In addition, we ought to continuously attack al-Baghdadi. In other words, a good offense gives you a great defense.”

Again, the general sees a dithering administration.

“By attacking those troops in al-Baghdadi, they’re going to be fearing for their lives, but I don’t see this being done,” he said. “This is 101 in basic war fighting, and we’re not getting that. I know the Pentagon wants to do that, but they’re not getting support out of the White House. This is being micromanaged out of the White House.”

A new CNN poll reveals 58 percent of Americans now disapprove of the president’s handling of ISIS.

In addition to McInerney’s frustration with the military tactics being employed against ISIS, he is livid over the Obama administration refusing to define the motivation behind the threat. Calling the rise and expansion of ISIS the result of “what happens when good people do nothing to fight evil,” McInerney said the Obama administration is keeping its head in the sand about how the ideology of this movement must be confronted.

“The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a radical Islamic organization,” McInerney said. “Al-Qaida, which attacked us on 9/11, is a radical Islamic organization. Hamas in the Gaza Strip is a radical Islamic organization. All these organizations that people hear about are radical Islamists. The Iranian government is a radical Islamic organization.”

The general said it is incumbent for President Obama to stop avoiding the elephant in the room and clearly state who and what America is fighting.

“Until the president identifies the threat that we are facing as radical Islam, it makes it very difficult to defeat the threat,” he said. “I just can’t say it any clearer. It’s important that this White House and this president identify the threat for what it is.”

Obama was vacationing in California over the Presidents’ Day weekend. The only White House responses to the ISIS beheadings or Saturday’s terrorist attacks in Denmark came from written statements. In a very short response to the shootings in Copenhagen, a three-sentence statement from a National Security Council spokesperson never referred to terrorism or radical Islam. On Sunday, a statement from White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest referred to the 21 slain Coptic Christians only as “Egyptian citizens.”

McInerney is mystified by the lengths to which the administration goes to avoid references to radical Islam.

“I don’t know. Maybe we have some Islamists embedded in the White House,” McInerney said. “Whatever it is, it is absolutely bizarre. When Charlie Hebdo was attacked in Europe, everybody was calling it radical Islam except our president, who was calling it violent extremists.”

“What is the ideology of violent extremists? I don’t know,” he said. “Are they Irish? Are they Swedes? Who are they? I do know what the ideology of radical Islamists is. It is the Quran, the Hadith and Shariah law. Those are the things that we are fighting against.”

What do YOU think? Are there Islamists embedded in the White House? Sound off in today’s WND poll!

Last week, President Obama requested a new congressional authorization for the use of military force, or AUMF, against ISIS. Some lawmakers are pleased that Obama is consulting Congress on the mission some six months after it began. Others say the scope is too narrow and should not be limited to just the next three years.

McInerney is not impressed by the request.

“He has given a political document,” he explained. “He’s trying to tie the hands of the president who follows him. He is not being aggressive on this because I think it’s a funding thing. His priorities are on domestic policy. It’s not on the global situation. He’s had four secretaries of defense. No president in our history has had four secretaries of defense. We have lost Libya, Syria and now Yemen. Plus, we have really lost Iraq, because that’s now become a proxy state of Iran when we pulled out.”

In just over six years of the Obama presidency, McInerney said the pendulum in the Middle East is swinging in the wrong direction.

“He has completely changed the geopolitical position in the Middle East,” he said. “Egypt is now getting aid from the Russians. Forty years ago, we made a brilliant move when we flipped Egypt from relying on the Soviet Union to the United States and the Western world. This administration has completely reversed that. It’s a disaster.”

Fellow Americans the whole lot of them are greedy for SELF. The ONLY way we will see America survive is for THE CHRISTIANS to WAKE UP and begin to CRY ALOUD unto HOLY GOD for divine intervention! The system is broken!
We have warned and warned until we have been blue in the face. Bottom line, ONLY a outpouring of god's presence and power will deliver our glorious nation! We are in desperate NEED of a spiritual awakening! And if God will be merciful and send it, we BETTER stay humble and close to Him. NO party NO man nor woman will save us. Like the Pilgrims, we NEED GOD! These beheading are just starting. God hear our cries and send us help from his Mighty a Throne. In Jesus name I pray.
We have known for years the Muslim brotherhood is in the highest offices of our government. This is NOT new. Hillary & Ummah Weiner, the wife of the pervert who put his Weiner all over the Internet is married to Muslim Sisterhood, who gave us these rats with Hillsry's blessings. This is old news. Valerie Jarret, Ms. NEVER been VETTED is a Taoist from Iran, who orders Obama around. Please cry out to God in desperation, he IS our only hope.
You all know the true Americans are the illegals he is allowing into our country. We The a People who defended America are to Obama the 2nd class citizens. He has his new "Americans" they get our blessings for FREE!

Clintons received plenty of cash from Saudi Arabia---nobody hands out $$$ unless strings are attached. In researching the web, some believe Saudi Arabia funded schooling for Obama-had his records scrubbed---He was their presidential pick ---Hillary gets the secretary of state "award"  Was this the payoff???? Curiosity is making me ask.....

It's reported that the pilots who flew into the towers were from Saudi Arabia--we attack Afghanistan, why? Wasn't it  H.W.,  ex CIA director, former prez who convinced Saudi Arabia to drill for oil?

Seems to me all these individuals share more than meets the eye

Anybody know of these things or can you prove me wrong?

Yes, one of the Saudi princes paid for Harvard... not sure who bought the Columbia degree -- he was never there.

We had engineers (as well as England) get the oil flowing but it was long before H.W.  In fact, Halliburton has been in the M.E, since the sixties.  Yep, most of the pilots were Saudis and they pay tons for Wahabbiism teachings in the mosques here, hotbeds of radicalization.  The Clintons will sell their mothers for $$$... money from the Indonesian prez -- their clean coal deposits are the 2nd largest in the world, behind Utah.  Thus the Grand Iniquities Act, which shut down Utah.  Hillary's first trip as Sec of State was to Indonesia.

How do you think N Korea got their nuclear technology???  ...the Chinese have stealth bombers, remarkably like ours??? 

We have too many useful idiots ready and willing to elect whores.  And they're working hard to keep US citizens in rags while they exponentially expand their (illegal) voting base.  Prepare!

All I know is when the Pilgrims & later our founding fathers found themselves in a mess.... They Cried out to Almighty Hod to forgive them and remember his Covenant with them! God heard and he used nature to show his Mighty Power! He did it for them he will do it again for us! Lord hear our cries, please forgive us. Do not be silent while wicked men & women destroy your glorious America . Even at this late hour Dear Lord you could deliver us. It's a mess Lord, only you can save us. Please fight for us dear Lord as you did for the Pilgrims and our founding fathers of the Christian faith. We are desperate for you dear Zlord. Once more please send us great awakening. Cause us as Americans to unite under the Banner of the Cross, Jesus Christ

I cannot believe all the former military are writing letters rather than organizing a successful plan of attack. I have no military experience but would be happy to die storming our White House if I knew there were a few hundred thousand behind me to assure victory. Same goes for the capital. I was really filled with hope when the Oath Keepers came to the defense of the Bundy Ranch. What happened? Where are they now? They say they have 50,000 members. And the millions of armed citizens don't seem to give a hoot. Are we at the point where civil war is our only way out of this communist nightmare?

We cannot wait any longer to get the enemies out of our White House and administration.

Take a look at these two pieces of info I found.   They are a little long but you can skim over them to get the idea.

Answers a lot of questions of what our government has been up to.

OBAMAS FOREIGN POLICY MB's WESTWARD EXPANSION > Mag on Islam, Muslim Culture & History

The West & MB After Arab Spring

I read alot an see what people are saying on the comment boards, what i do not understand is the fact that nobody is doing a damn thing about this? We can sit an talk all day long, but then that is just talking. There is a muslum living in the White House when we are at war with Islam?  Why are we still talking? What does everyone wish to do- sit an wait for this imposter to destroy the entire country? To be clear on this is NOT being talked about or everyone is OK with loosing America?

I could care less about the low information as they shall just get in the way anyway, but the rest need to get started in the removal process about the muslum in the WH or we all are gonna wish the he// we did ??  Military style if needed ?

If you do not think a military take-over is needed then i guess you have no idea where this is going ?

Please keep on informing others, Greg.  I am 67 and my husband is 82.  We cannot do much, but we are doing all we can with what we have.  Information is powerful--keep up your good work.  We also need a good dose of The Holy Bible and knowledge of it to know where we all came from, to warn us of danger, to help us live eternally, and to live successfully and abundantly daily.   We have forgotten to read our "Users Manual" for mankind.  Oh, wouldn't it be a utopia if we could all live as the Bible teaches--as Christ taught us!!!!!  +++
