House Intelligence committee chairman Mike Rogers claimed that President Obama’s admission that the White House has no strategy to deal with ISIS “exemplifies that his foreign policy is in absolute free fall.”
The Michigan Republican congressman told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday that the president’s lack of a plan to defeat the Islamic terrorist group is “consistent with his past policy and actions on foreign policy. And it shows, and I think exemplifies, that his foreign policy is in absolute free fall.”
“If you look at China, you look at ISIS, you look at Russia, you look at Iran, North Korea, we have a serious host of problems presenting itself,” Rogers explained, “and our traditional allies are now standing up and saying, ‘Maybe America is not the best ones to lead us through these troubles.’ That is an issue we’re going to have to deal with.”
Wallace wondered if perhaps it made sense for the White House to “get all its ducks in a row” before deciding how to confront ISIS. “What’s wrong with that?” he asked.
“The problem is, the clock didn’t start with the beheading of American journalist,” Rogers replied. “That was just a symptom of what was a long and growing problem for the United States. So it’s not wrong. It’s just very, very late in the game. And it presents fewer options.”
