HOUSE TERRORISM CHAIR: Obama’s Strategy On Terrorism Has Been A “Complete Failure”

The House Chair on Terrorism pretty much said what everyone else has been thinking about Obama’s terrorism policy from day one. Obama has removed all of the things that helped law enforcement track down radicals. This has to be the biggest mistake because we have to be able to profile for terror even though the Muslim community dislikes it. Let’s face it, the Muslims are the only ones chopping off heads and blowing people up so we SHOULD target them!

In the wake of Tuesday’s deadly terrorist attack in Brussels, the chairman of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade called the Obama administration’s strategy against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) “a complete failure.”

“Days after Belgian law enforcement captured alive ISIS terrorist Salah Abdeslam, one of the suspected ringleaders of the deadly Paris attacks, terrorists retaliated in Brussels by launching a series of explosions at the airport and train station. Thirty-four civilians are dead and 170 are injured,” Rep Ted Poe (R-TX) said in a statement Tuesday hours after blasts rocked a terminal of the Brussels’ airport and its subway system.

“Today’s bombings illustrate that ISIS still maintains operational networks in Europe capable of carrying out attacks in the capital of the European Union even as security services are on high alert,” said Poe, who is also a member of the House Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia and Emerging Threats.

“It is clear that our current strategy against ISIS – which has allowed the terrorist organization to retain a haven from which to plan and launch attacks for nearly two years – is a complete failure and needs to be reassessed.

“Empty words claiming progress and success against ISIS are meaningless in the face of today’s carnage in Brussels. This latest attack is the new normal in Europe and it will come to our soil if our leaders continue to refuse to define the enemy, radical Islam.

“Jihadists have promised to bring terror to the United States and they will deliver on that promise if we do not use our full resources to destroy them,” Poe said.

“Until we dislodge the terrorists from their havens and neutralize their capabilities to strike in our cities, the citizens of the world will remain in grave danger.”
