Barack Hussein Obama settled into an all-too-comfy chair for an all-too-comfy interview on CBS's "60 Minutes" show and blamed the rise of ISIS entirely on our nation's intelligence agencies.
Obama accused said "intelligence" of underestimating the rising strength of ISIS while overestimating the ability of the Iraqi army to fight back in a meaningful way. Because if Obama had received accurate intelligence, he obviously would have made brilliant decisions to keep the jihadist situation from coming to a head. Or beheadings.
"Over the past couple of years, during the chaos of the Syrian civil war," Obama monotoned, "where essentially you have huge swaths of the country that are completely ungoverned, [Al Qaeda radicals] were able to reconstitute themselves and take advantage of that chaos."
Which was pretty much what everyone with actual intelligence had been saying would happen for years. Still, the president is correct that the jihadists are taking advantage of the chaos that accompanies a lack of governance. Although sadly, it is the chaos Obama is creating at home and abroad.
