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'm guilty of using references to the 'Wiki links', and always hope that others viewing the reference link would continue to research other sources.  Actually I get more information from the 'source links' listed at the end of a wiki page site than their actual submission.  I skip the pages with the notation "citation needed".

As Anne said, it is a good starting point for research. 

There are also potential tax implications, as we see with telephone companies:


A good overview of both sides of this issue:

Thanks for the "heads-up". I was under the impression that Demand Progress was in favor of keeping the internet free from private profiteers like comcast and ATT.  This is something that I have not done much research on, but need to.

That is certainly the credo they are putting out there and I'm sure that is the intent of many groups supporting it.  As with almost anything proposed by the government, the true motives will remain hidden until it is too late.  To be perfectly honest, I find myself questioning ANYTHING the government wants to do to "help" the American citizen, especially anything that is favored by the Muslim-in-Chief!  If he wants it, you can pretty well guarantee it is NOT to our benefit!

I also heard that the death of Tom Clancy was also rather suspicious....mainly because of his knowledge of military which he tried to keep very realistic and up to date for his books.

I heard the same, Anne; also, that he was on the trail of something or had pertinent info that would harm the government.  As with anything I "hear," I tend to take it with a grain of salt until proof is offered; however, given the track record of the Federal government, it certainly wouldn't surprise me!

Additional information on the Muslim Brotherhood.....................

From the Explanatory Memorandum– the Muslim Brotherhood in America in its own words:

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

I don't know how we are going to defeat the Islamic perversions when the American Leadership is complicit in helping them to destroy us.  They are most assuredly creatures of habit.  I've been able to find more historical information about them, and their methods have not changed.

It is sounding more and more like we have a MAJOR homeland security problem.  I pray that there are some retired SEALs out there who are planning an op.  If not......PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE  plan the op then do it.

There are a couple generals and an Admiral stating if things continue, there will be an occurrence; however, if the Mafia style admin is as advanced as I believe they are, there may just be more arrests or mysterious deaths. Evil people will stoop pretty low to maintain or increase their power base. Still, there is no greater tool for all Christians than prayer. I hope everyone remembers their armor of God, to equip themselves and their angels.
We have much to pray for, but we have to remember that The Lord's priorities are not the same as ours.
Aside from the DHS/ illegal amnesty, that will further destroy our economy and build an increased voter base for communist takeover under the guise of Democrats, there is also the TPP, the Internet takeover, the mandatory vaccine push, and the upcoming boycott of Netanyahu's speech to congress. We know that The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated all WH controlled departments including Homeland security. If anyone is unsure about the communist takeover, they need to read the communist manifesto. Just take a look at the history in other countries, particular focus on Hitler. He had all his opponents murdered, so he won the vote. The progression is like clockwork.
In addition, James O'Keefe is about to release info that he states is putting his life in danger-he needs protection prayer. He is no wimp, as his investigations prior have demonstrated.
Russian news is showing the people there concerned about nuclear options. The Iran negotiation is pathetic. Still, I think Netanyahu will address that. I Just wish Americans, particularly the Jews, could see through the Obama facade. Jews in Israel do.
Don't forget to pray for our military, if all Americans knew about the unprecedented cuts and demoralization of our military, they would be in the streets, because our defense is diminishing as we speak. My family is military, but I also have family in Govt, not allowed to disclose. One of my sons says that officers have no clue as to whom to trust any more, Squwking Jays are every where like demons looking for those to devour, they seek out those who stand up for God and/or those who are patriotic and conservative.
Don't worry about the investments in oil or wine. In the End times, The Word says they are not to be touched; however, be careful of any stock market investments because the entire world economy is in dire straights. I personally believe God will take care of His own, despite the administration's attempt to take over or destroy the meat and food industry here in the US. This too is part of the communist plan.
Be careful what you watch on TV and even video games. It is all meant to make you fearful and to get you to slowly accept the evil that the world wants. The Word says in Philippians 4:8 says" Finally Brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely,whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
We are to pray for our leaders good and bad, for The Lord God appoints all leaders. Remember though that " the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:16

Bless you, Sandra.......powerful words.
