    Obama is simply a pathetic leader. Just unbelievably bad. He doesn't have a damn clue.

    America's FAILED raid to rescue James Foley: White House reveals how US special forces stormed ISIS camp just a month ago - only to find hostages weren't there...as Obama goes back to his golf

    The U.S. attempted to rescue Americans held hostage by ISIS in early July, but the mission failed when they showed up at the wrong location
    President Barack Obama seemed to double down on attacking ISIS after a militant beheaded Foley in a shocking video

    'One thing we can all agree on is a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century,' a defiant Obama said

    US Secret Service and UK intelligence are searching for Foley's executioner, who spoke with a British accent in the video

    Nearly a dozen new airstrikes near the Mosul Dam came after gruesome video showed an ISIS militant cutting off photojournalist's head

    ISIS threatened to kill a second American journalist if airstrikes continue; White House has confirmed the footage is authentic

    Foley's parents issued a statement stating their son was 'innocent'

    Obama spoke from his vacation on Martha's Vineyard and played golf immediately after delivering his remarks

    But what about White on White Crime?
    You know that 84% of all crimes against white people are done by white people?
    Why are you not talking about that?

    That has nothing to do with this thread. Pretty disgusting when we're talking about an American citizen getting beheaded by terrorists and all you wanna talk about is "white on white crime" in order to further your political agenda.

    Its not quite the Onion, but really this is not a credible source.

    That being said, the story is true, just keep in mind it is heavily right-wing biased.

    Anyways ISIS is terrible. I deplore more military action in the Middle East but ISIS needs to be stopped.

    Although I wish POTUS would do more against ISIS, and I fear he will half-a$$ it and let them build their caliphate, I am not going to fault him for a failed attempt to recover Foley. If the intel is bad that is not his fault - he can only go based upon what he is told.

    I am actually somewhat surprised that he'd have the stones to order the attempt. At least he tried. I'd expect him to have simply ignored it and hit the links instead.

    It would be difficult to describe you, texxx, without calling you an incredible douchebag with no taste whatsoever, who's only reason for being here is to parrot Fox News like an automaton, so I won't say anything.

    I don't understand. Is he implying that other presidents didn't do this?

    Apparently texxx doesn't believe that President Obama can walk and chew gum at the same time.

    I bet Obama is going to have dinner with his family tonight while people are being murdered by ISIS. How does this man sleep at night?

    God bless Foley and his family. It's a terrible thing when parents have to bury their child. But it's a war and everyone doesn't get to live when they go off to war (although we want them to). The president knows this and the rest of us do to.

    I have zero confidence in Obama. He has shown time and time again that he's incapable.

    It's truly amazing how such an incompetent dunce like Obama could have been elected president. He makes W look like a genius.

    Not much different from: "I will not rest until everyone American who is able, and ready and willing to work can find a job."

    Last time I looked able Americans were still unemployed and the President was taking vacation.

    if obama sends a mission to save foley, then it would have been "inept obama spends our money to rescue soldier who released classified intel to isis during torture." =/
