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.”

Amen there Rooster...Amen there.

Ronald, I tried what you said and did see US State Dept. Spokeswoman steps down, but do not see Swen/Atlantic Wire article you mentioned. I do believe you. If you do happen to get the link please share it. I really would love to see it. God I hope it's true. We will have to wait and see.

Janet, If you get to that article click on the Comments under it. Also I just copied it and posted it here,,,go back to page 7 in this thread.

Here is the source document:  Swen 5 hours ago 1
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

Read the posts at about page seven.

Thank you Old Rooster and Ronald...Okay, I finally found it. I tried like crazy to find more info about this, but don't see anything.  Where did Swen get this info from? I left a comment for him to reply. Why would someone make this up? And it seems strange that it isn't anywhere on the Atlantic Wire either. I'll keep checking and if I get a reply from Swen will share.

It seems to good to be true, but miracles do happen.

Janet-- Hope springs eternal and yes miracles do happen. Maybe this is one for the masses..

Let's not forget that there is another agenda in play here.  The author of that agenda gave His life so that we would have eternal life.  Trust me when I say I am fixing to step on my own toes because I don't have much patience when it comes to this administration (and over the years I have learned NOT to pray for it).  Everything will happen in His time.  His agenda also states that He will return, but we do not know when...only that there will be many troubles leading up to this event.  I'd say that we have more than our fair share of them at this moment, especially with this idiot who is determined to turn against God's own people....Israel. 

I believe this is RUSSIAN............


Psaki resigns as spokeswoman of U.S. State Department

19 February 2015 - 8:12pm

Spokeswoman of the U.S. State Department Jen Psaki has resigned due to pregnancy. She plans to work in President Barack Obama’s administration for two years, starting in April, RIA Novosti reports.

To Ronald David Towbridge:  The Heritage Foundation is real and was established to my knowledge in the 1980s in order to preserve our religious freedoms as well as our national heritage as One Nation Under God.  My gut tells me that this is the real thing.  There is already a candidate that was nominated and elected and sworn in under the original constitution for The Republic for the United States of America.  After the civil war, the southern states would not sign any documents reconstituting themselves under the new government.  Therefore, wealthy individuals set up a corporation to "run" the United States, to set up a Federal Reserve System which is privately owned but operates the currency and banking for our country, and to use the globalists to "operate the fiat government" which we now perceive to be legitimate.  The new legal president of the Republic for the United States is James Buchanan Geiger who was sworn into office in March in Memphis by those who met to form a Constitutional Convention to do so.  This is a provisional way to regain our legal government and to "set aside" and properly and legally convict those who have staged such an illegal "faux government".  John Bolton will preside until all the legalities are met.  First, military control and then civilian control and then civilian trials for treason against those who are no longer in office.

You are correct William. I joined the Republic about 5 years ago.

William Sidney Bryant--Time will tell if this is real, but I have a renewed hope and optimism that has been lacking in my mind for a long time. I even cried a little bit!!
