Jason Riley: Obama Has a ‘Policy of Containing ISIS, Not Eliminating It’

‘It’s not that we don’t have the capability to do this, we lack the political will to do it’

RILEY: "ISIS is able to carry out major attacks on European cities, seemingly at will. They’re winning the PR campaign, and when it comes to recruitment, perception is what matters most. I think the chairman got right to the point, which is that this administration continues to have a policy of containing ISIS, not eliminating it. It’s not that we don’t have the capability to do this, we lack the political will to do it."
