Brooke Goldstein Calls Out Failure of Obama's Iraq Policies

"We are seeing now...American citizens, European citizens, Canadian citizens are now being recruited to train along ISIS along other Al-Qaeda affiliated groups"

On Thursday night, Brooke Goldstein of the Lawfare Project highlighted the threat to the United States posed by the Islamic terrorist group ISIS. 

"If we learned anything from 9/11, we know that all you need is an American passport, access to within our borders, to be able to carry out an attack, " said Goldstein. "We are seeing now...American citizens, European citizens, Canadian citizens are now being recruited to train along ISIS along other Al-Qaeda affiliated groups."

"ISIS is a theologically motivated threat that wants to wage war against the West."

Goldstein also highlighted how the Obama administration has misled the public to believe that the Iraqi security forces are capable of defending themselves and how the complete withdrawal of troops from Iraq in fact created the void that was filled by ISIS.

"We have to take this as a case example. When we withdrew our troops without having any military presence whatsoever, we have ISIS. I don't think it would be a good idea to have this policy of complete non-engagement any longer," she concluded.
