NBC’s Richard Engel Blasts Obama’s Foreign Policy Claims as Wishful Thinking

NBC’s Richard Engel Blasts Obama’s Foreign Policy Claims as Wishful Thinking (Washington Free Beacon)

In President Obama’s State of the Union address the President gave a very brief view of his plans for the coming year in the terms of foreign policy.

The President claimed that our military power is stopping the Islamic State’s advance and this is not the case. For every 1,000 ISIL fighters in Iraq and Syria that are killed every month, the terror group is replacing them with 1,500 more. While the President doesn’t want to send troops in to fight ISIL but plans to build a coalition of moderate Syrian fighters. These just don’t exist.
