Chris Wallace asks Lindsey Graham (R-SC) about the effectiveness of Obamaâ€™s â€œstrategyâ€ in Iraq which he limits our response in Iraq to one particular artillery piece in Irbil or an individual vehicle.
Graham said itâ€™s a political response, that Obama doesnâ€™t want a â€œbad news storyâ€ on his watch. He reveals that every member of Congress has been warned that there is an existential threat posed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
In order to change that threat, the United States needs to go on offense; we are the only ones with that capability. At a minimum, says Graham, American air power is needed to support opposition forces and friendly governments.
In regards to Obamaâ€™s pronouncements that the United States will not become re-engaged in Iraq, that there is no American military solution to the crisis in Iraq, Graham said this is a direct threat to the American homeland.
He says the oath of office and the responsibility as commander-in-chief, a title Obama seems to savor, â€œtrumps any political promise.â€ He says if Obama does not go on the offensive against these terrorists, they are coming to America. Itâ€™s not just about Baghdad or Syria.
â€œIf we get attacked, because he has no strategy to protect us,â€ says Graham, â€œThen he will have committed a blunder for the ages.â€
