Feinstein: Obama ‘Too Cautious’ on ISIS, Wrong To Call Them ‘JV’

‘I know that others have been putting plans together’

Feinstein: Obama ‘too cautious’ about ISIS (National Review Online)

President Obama has been “too cautious” in his response to the ISIS threat, Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) suggested Sunday morning.

Feinstein made the comment when asked if Obama’s announcement that he doesn’t have a strategy for the terrorists in Iraq and Syria projected weakness.

“I’ve learned one thing about this president and that is he’s very cautious; maybe, in this instance, too cautious” Feinstein told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Meet the Press. “I do know that the military, I know that the State Department, I know that others have been putting plans together. And so, hopefully, those plans will coalesce into a strategy that can encourage that coalition . . . there is good reason for people to come together now and begin to approach this as the very real threat that it, in fact, is.”
