In Less Than 90 Seconds This Retired General Crushes Obama’s Plan to Fight ISIS

Retired Army Lt. General Michael Flynn was asked to testify before the House Armed Services Committee regarding Obama’s request for military force against terrorist groups. 
The General didn’t mince words when he spoke and clearly defined what he would do and what the problems seem to be under the current administration.
From The Blaze:
When we give our military commanders a mission, we should allow them to execute that mission, and not overly constrain them with approved authorities, but then having to come back to the administration for permission,” Flynn said. “Either we need to review those authorities and those permissions, or we need to change the commanders because we apparently don’t trust them to do the job that we’ve given them do to.”

“We have become so overly bureaucratic, in coming up through the system to get permission to basically do things that, frankly, colonels on the battlefield or captains at sea are very capable of doing,” he added.
Flynn offered his assessment of Obama’s request after a blistering five-minute set of opening remarks in which he said the Islamic State is a serious threat to U.S. interests, and that the U.S. must respond quickly and with violence.
“This enemy must be opposed. They must be killed,” he told the committee. “They must be destroyed, and the associated extremist form of the Islamic ideology must be defeated wherever it rears its ugly head.”
“There are some who counsel patience, arguing violent Islamists are not an existential threat and therefore can simply be managed as criminals. I respectfully and strongly disagree,” he added.
Flynn also warned that the U.S. is “at war with violent and extreme Islamists, both Sunni and Shia, and we must accept and face this reality.”
Watch his remarks here:
Finally someone is saying what many have been thinking.  It seems the Obama Administration are the only ones who have a problem admitting Islamic Extremists are indeed a ‘big effing deal’. 

History has proven what these people are capable of and just how dangerous and extreme they are to the entire world, not just the United States.  What we need are leaders like Flynn. 

The Obama Administration has been tying the hands of our military since Obama came into office and Islamic Extremism had grown far worse and spread because of it.


  1. Lt. General Flynn doesn't understand that ISIS is really a creation of the CIA and Mossad, critical for our latest excuse for ongoing involvement in the Middle East. If Obama were to unleash the US military against ISIS, and the military did their job of killing and capturing all of the carefully nurtured ISIS fighters, that excuse would evaporate before the financial benefits of war could be fully exploited by the Military-Industrial Complex. If Flynn would get his nose out of Pentagon reports and the MSM long enough to read on alternative news sites, he would know this.

  2. Tom--you have it pat down. What is never talked about--Reason ISIS (rebels) NATO formed--do the mass killings and then USA comes in to kill the hired killers (ISIS).Bingo! Iraq Syria become a colony of USrael.

  3. As for America's answer to just about any problem, retired General Wesley Clark said it best. When the only hammer you have is a big military, every problem looks like a nail.

    The US Army trained the ISIS trash in Jordan in 2012.Hard to take any of these guys seriously anymore.

  5. Then why doesn't the 500,000 man Army of Turkey destroy them?
    Oh, riiiiight.
    Never mind..

  6. Every military in history ---- same excuses ----- we WOULD have won except those darn politicians.
    WE helped create this mess to fight the Ruskies in Afghanistan. *SSHOLE.
    In 2001 there were a FEW thousand terrorists, mostly just barefoot illiterates with small bases in Afghanistan and Somalia with NO presence in Iraq. Now, thanks to the superior war fighting skills and knowledge of the Military Geniuses in the Pentagon there are tens of thousands with strongholds in Libya, Nigeria, Yemen, Somalia, Syria/Iraq, Afghanistan,Pakistan, etc.
    Thanks to Abu Graihb,Guantanamo, Secret Dungeons out of the Feudal Dark Ages .... Hillary Clinton bringing chaos to Lybia which spread weapons everywhere ..... ISIS is putting hostages in orange jumpsuits because the U.S. put tortured Guantanamo detainees in orange jumpsuits. And because the U.S. waterboarded Arab detainees, ISIS is waterboarding Western hostages.
    Thanks to mental defectives that these "military geniuses" HIRE . such as "Prince" and his mercenaries of Blackwater/XI/Ademi....he has to change his name every few months to HIDE from his own actions. These Child murdering MERCENARIES are CREATING terrorists.

  7. Funny. No matter which enemy it is, the answer from the military industrial complex is always to spend ourselves into poverty so we can drop bombs on mostly civilians halfway across the world. If "Islamic Extremism (tm)" were to disappear tomorrow, I can safely predict that whatever bogeyman is conjured up next will be said to require yet another doubling of the security/police state.

  8. As much as I despise the Marxist Obama, I do approve of his foot-dragging on attacking yet another group.
    His reluctance is a sign that he is weary of dropping bombs on anyone that the Israeli's tell us to.
    A 10 year old knows that the more bombs you drop on people, the more deep the hatred from them to you will be.
    Fewer bombs, better relations (but Israel cannot thrive if the US is in good standing with Muslims).

  9. "They must be
    destroyed, and the associated extremist form of the Islamic ideology
    must be defeated wherever it rears its ugly head.”"

    Alternately, they could be ignored as they pose no threat to Americans without CIA/FBI help.

  10. I think it is more probable that Lt. General Flynn is perfectly aware that ISIS is our manufactured enemy, and that he is heavily invested in the military industrial complex and will profit from this fake war, and he is spreading the propaganda loudly and widely in order to bring it on.

  11. I keep wondering where ISIS orders those orange jumpsuits. And where they have them delivered. And why the orange jumpsuit company agrees to supply evil terrorists. And why does ISIS go through all that bother and expense when they could just leave the hostages in their own clothes?

  12. There is a better-than-even chance you are right. However, in the past when generals complained about having to fight a war with one hand tied behind their back it was because they didn't understand that the goal was to prolong the war as much as possible. General MacArthur tried to go after the Chinese to achieve a quick victory in Korea and he got sacked by Truman. It has become almost a tradition for officers to complain about being limited in Vietnam, but the MIC/CIA were able to drag that one out ten years and made a fortune on it in weapons sales and heroin smuggling. Now since 9/11 the art of endless war (as first detailed in Orwell's 198) has been perfected, as Cheney claimed early on that the "War on Terror" "would not end in our lifetime". Pretty honest for a guy who made his career on lying.

  13. Who cares who runs the ME, just so long as they pump oil like it's 1999. Elvis has left the building.

  14. 9/11 also saw the military hands tied. Now the owner of isis is the

  15. Funny how "our intelligence" can record every pre-teen-girl-chit-chat with her BFF ,,,,,,,,, but ISIS was "A TOTAL SURPRISE" and just came out of nowhere. .........
