Feinstein: Obama ISIS Plan Not 'Sufficient to the Job'

“It has not gotten better. It’s gotten worse.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) criticized President Obama once again, this time on CBS Sunday talk show Face the Nation. The California Senator said that the Obama administration's approach to fighting ISIS is not "sufficient to the job."

Host John Dickerson asked Feinstein if Secretary of State John Kerry had alleviated her concerns about the administration's strategy on Islamic terrorism. 

“No, I don’t think the approach is sufficient to the job,“ Feinstein said. “I think their general principles and their general principles in terms of the administration’s strategy, too, but I’m concerned that we don’t have the time, and we don’t have years. We need to be aggressive now, because ISIL is a quasi-state.”

Host Dickerson followed up and asked if the Obama regime had lacked urgency, been too cautious in addressing ISIL.

“What I’m saying is this has gone on too long now,” she said. “It has not gotten better. It’s gotten worse.”

Instead, Feinstein suggested the U.S. needs a larger special operations plan, larger than the 50 operators that Obama has deployed. "It's not going to solve the problem," Feinstein said.
