Chris Wallace to W.H. Spokesman: How Could Obama Have Been So Wrong?

‘We decimated the core of al Qaeda’

Blinken Grilled Over Obama’s UN Speech (The Washington Free Beacon)

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace grilled President Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken over the president’s 2013 UN speech, during which he claimed that core al Qaeda had been “dismantled.”

“How could the president have been so wrong?” Wallace asked. “He said all our troops have left Iraq. In fact, he has just sent at least 1600 troops back into Iraq. He said we’ve dismantled the core of al Qaeda. The Khorasan, which you’ve struck in the first day, is an offshoot and follows the direct orders of the leader of al Qaeda, Ayman Al-Zawahiri.”
