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.”

I have been thinking the same thing Doc and Forrest. I am certain that there are still decent high ranking people in the military who are appalled at the atrocities committed by this administration. Being that deception is the name of the game, it is near impossible to have full faith in anything concerning government until you see it with your own eyes. Whether this is truly an act by the "good guys" or just another deception toward martial law, somethings gotta give. If it is going to take a (revolutionary) war in America in order to save America, then so be it. As you all well know, America is being destroyed on many fronts. I, for one, am completely fed up with the fraud, deception, oppression, tyranny, murder, corruption, embezzlement, extortion, racketeering, malfeasance, misfeasance, etc. These people are nothing but criminals hell bent on the destruction of everything that is good, moral, honest, and of integrity. Give me Liberty or give me death.

Atlantic Wire: Juan Suarez-23 mins ago visa vis
BREAKING: AP- Le Nouvel Observateur/NY Times: “For God and Country” - MI-6 and Mossad SIGINT platforms and extremely credible agent provocateur sources from leading think tanks both liberal and conservative have gone on the record stating that former decorated American General and CIA Director, David Patreaus along with three Supreme Court Justices, Joint Chiefs, aligned Dept. of State leadership, House and Senate leadership (some Dems), HQ’d out of Heritage Foundation have been drafting an emergency document that calls for: Military takeover of current administration and the installation of a provisional government with derived powers stemming from old treason impeachment documents dating back some 130 years. When rule of law has been re-established according to constitution, mass arrests of: current administration leaders in executive, legislative, and judicial branches will commence. Public Show trials will be conducted and run by DOD resources. Internment camps in Idaho, Montana, N. Nevada, Utah will immediate begin processing illegal aliens, treasonous officials/politicians. A special media task force will be directed to en-mass with great alacrity bring to justice treasonous corporate media officers along with personalities….This is the end game after Patraeus testifies once again, this time as a civilian to both House and Senate committees investigating Benghazi. Ambassador John Bolton to be head of temporary provisional government whilist all undesirables are swept off the streets. America will be divided up into 6 zones, with a former combatant commander presiding over courts, legislatures, police forces, Nat. Guard Units, etc. Until free and unencumbered elections are set up….Soros and his tentacles will be dispatched with extreme prejudice. AW-JS-23 mins ago – LNO/Longines-InvRep

About Heritage

The Heritage Foundation

Founded in 1973, The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institution—a think tank—whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

We believe the principles and ideas of the American Founding are worth conserving and renewing. As policy entrepreneurs, we believe the most effective solutions are consistent with those ideas and principles. Our vision is to build an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish.

Heritage’s staff pursues this mission by performing timely, accurate research on key policy issues and effectively marketing these findings to our primary audiences: members of Congress, key congressional staff members, policymakers in the executive branch, the nation’s news media, and the academic and policy communities.

The Heritage Foundation’s research staff is organized under three Institutes, each devoted to developing policies grounded in conservative principles that will strengthen our economy, our society, and America.

  • The Institute for Economic Freedom and Opportunity seeks to promote a stronger economy and consists of the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies, the Chief Economist's Office, the Center for Trade and Economics, and the Center for Data Analysis.
  • The Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity promotes a stronger society and consists of the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society, the B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics, the Center for Health Policy Studies, and the Domestic Policy Studies staff.
  • The Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy promotes a stronger America and consists of the Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign and National Security Policy, and the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, the Asian Studies Center, and the International Studies staff.

Working in conjunction with all three Institutes are Heritage’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies and the Research Editing staff.

The Heritage Foundation combines the three key elements necessary to achieve conservative policy successes -- effective research, superb communications, and first-rate advocacy. The Research, Strategic Communications, and Policy Promotion teams, supported by the Development Team and working with the leaders and advocates at Heritage Action for America and its team across the country, pursue conservative policies to help Americans build for themselves a better life.

Governed by an independent Board of Trustees, The Heritage Foundation is an independent, tax-exempt institution. Heritage relies on the private financial support of the general public—individuals, foundations, and corporations—for its income, and accepts no government funds and performs no contract work. Heritage is one of the nation’s largest public policy research organizations. Its hundreds of thousands of individual members make it the most broadly supported think tank in America.



Any way of shooting this little piece of work over to them and seeing what they may have to say?

Good idea Anne, I know it seems to good to be true and where I found it is kinda sketchy but I will hope and pray anyway

thank you John J. The more education/ information we get the better, I appreciate it.

Everyone go to YAHOO NEWS AND FIND ARTICLE TITLED" State Dep't spokeswoman Steps Down" scroll down to comment section about ten comments down find Swen-Atlantic Wire;Juan Suarez/breaking news. Read it and tell me what you all think. Hoax? or legit? I pray this is legit. Sorry all as I am hardly tech savvy. Can't wait to hear other thoughts on this

OK, given where it is.....how legit is it?  It would also make a lot more tactical sense (no....I have not been in the military, guards, police officer, ect) if word didn't go out until the take over goes down.

It has probably just happened.  I remember that Beck and Jones reported that we have something BIG about to happen--I have been waiting and praying.   Trey Gowdy, the Prosecutor for the House of Representatives, has been on top of this for a long time.  Perhaps the dominos have fallen, because some of those hearings and procedures are not aired to the public.

Weren't they trying to shut down Gowdy's Benghazi hearings??


A web search on the name Juan Suarez shows several people but none that appear to be the type that would write something like this.

My guess is don't get your hopes up yet.

We need to keep looking and try to Vet this out,,,,,,,,,,, Sure would be good news though.
