Obama: ISIS is not ‘an existential threat to us’

obama-isisIt seems that denial is not just a river in Egypt.  While speaking with reporters Wednesday, Barack Obama actually said that ISIS is not “an existential threat to us.”

The ridiculous comment came in the wake of the most recent terror attack in Brussels which ISIS took credit for.

Nevertheless, he promised to “continue to go after ISIL aggressively until it’s removed from Syria and from Iraq and finally destroyed.”

Here’s video of his comments:

But it turns out there’s some shocking things that most people do not know, says Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse:

…It turns out that our allies Saudi Arabia and Turkey have been arming, funding and aiding ISIS and other radical jihadist groups such as the al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria), and Obama has known about it all along.  The goal was to take down the Assad regime in Syria, and the American people were never supposed to find out the truth.

Of course, this doesn’t really surprise anyone who’s been watching this administration operate.

Obama wants us to think that taking ISIS out is a top priority, but what, exactly, has the regime been doing?  Snyder adds:

We are told that the U.S. military is bombing ISIS targets, but in all the months that this has been happening, U.S. aircraft never targeted the endless convoys of ISIS oil trucks that were transporting stolen oil into Turkey.  It has been estimated that ISIS sold 800 million dollars worth of oil in Turkey, and Obama knew about it the entire time.

Why didn’t Obama say anything about this or do anything to stop it?

Good question.  We’re still waiting for a good answer.  Snyder says he wonders sometimes “which side our government is actually on.”

I’m thinking a lot of others do as well.  His entire piece, which can be seen here, is worth checking out…
