Just hours before stunning ISIS terror attacks left at least 150 dead in Paris, President Obama said the group was “contained.”
According to the Daily Caller:
In an interview with George Stephanopolous on “Good Morning America,” Obama asserted that ISIS was not gaining strength and that “we have contained them.”
When Stephanopolous suggested ISIS was gaining strength, Obama pushed back.
“I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” he said. “From the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave. But you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
