Obama: Let’s not send troops to fight ISIS because that’s what they want

obama-lecture1On Sunday, Barack Obama addressed the nation from the White House in what was billed as an effort to reassure the country after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

He started by saying the shooters weren’t “directed” by an overseas terrorist group nor a part of a broader conspiracy at home, even though ISIS praised the shooters and reports came out indicating that at least one pledged allegiance to the terror group’s leader.

He also called on Congress to enact gun control legislation that would not have made any difference whatsoever and lectured the country on discrimination.
