Brian Williams: Obama Was ‘Clear and Unambiguous’ on ISIS

‘The answer today from both the president and vice president appeared to be clear and unambiguous’

NBC's Brian Williams: Obama ‘Appeared to Be Clear and Unambiguous’ on ISIS (NewsBusters)

On Wednesday night’s NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams completely missed the mark on President Obama’s mixed signals regarding how his administration intends to deal with the threat of the Islamic terrorist group ISIS and omitted remarks from Obama that ISIS can be contained to the point of being “a manageable problem.”

At the top of the broadcast, Williams made this blatant falsehood: “[F]or all those who may be wondering if the U.S. is going to rise up, take the bait and get into the fight to root them out, the answer today from both the President and Vice President appeared to be clear and unambiguous.”
