Rice is one of the more stupid and disingenuous lackeys in Obama’s administration.
Oh, it’s a war all right, (if it ever comes into fruition) in spite of Obama not putting ”boots on the ground”, but because he never asked a joint session of Congress for approval, it’s his (illegal) extra-constitutional foray into war making. What Obama should have done, was in fact, give a declaration of war before both houses of Congress, spelling out the cause, what’s needed, as well as the end goal.
- JOHN KERRY: ‘WAR’ IS WRONG TERMINOLOGY FOR WHAT US IS DOING TO ISLAMIC STATE (Lurch is another doofus)
“We’ll not have American combat forces on the ground fighting as we did in Iraq and Afghanistan, which is what I think the American people think of when they think of a war, so I think this is very different from that.”
SUSAN RICE: IT’S NOT A WAR BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE COMBAT BOOTS ON THE GROUND
After Secretary of State John Kerry said on CNN that he didn’t view the continuing military strikes against ISIS targets as a war, National Security Advisor Susan Rice was dispatched to play cleanup on the network.
“Is the United States at war right now with ISIS?” asked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer during an interview with Rice, adding that it “sounds like a war to me” and asking “Is it fair to call it a war?”
“Well Wolf, I don’t know whether you want to call it a war or a sustained counterterrorism campaign,” she said, reminding him that Obama had vowed not to put U.S. combat boots on the ground.
She explained that when Americans thought about war, it was clear that they would think about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
