President Obama thinks the brutal, oppressive, head-chopping terrorists of the ISIS can be "managed" with . . . wait for it . . . COMMUNITY ORGANIZING!

"If we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL's sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities, to the point where it is a manageable problem...what we've got to do is make sure that we are organizing the Arab world, the Middle East, the Muslim world, along with the international community, to isolate this cancer," Obama stated.

Yeah, that'll fix everything up. Start a few chapters of ACORN in Baghdad and Damascus and PRESTO! No more terrorism. The Arabs just need some "organizing" help from the Americans. Incredibly, he goes on to claim he saw all this coming!

He further claimed that the US knew that terrorist groups outside of al-Qaeda such as ISIS were a threat, saying "one of the concerns that we have had is the development of terrorist networks and organizations, separate and apart from al-Qaeda ... we've seen ISIS to be the first one that has broken through, but we anticipated this a while back, and it was reflected in my West Point speech."

Here's the West Point speech. I am not sure how predictive and anticipatory the speech is, since it offers no more than a series of obvious generalities. But, giving the President the benefit of the doubt, If this has been anticipated since May, why do we still have no strategy to deal with it? In fact, though, Obama didn't seem to be anticipating more violence and terrorism, he seemed to be criticizing those who claimed his policies would encourage it.

In his speech, Obama also said there are those "interventionists from the left and right" who argue that "America's failure to act in the face of Syrian brutality or Russian provocations. invites escalating aggression in the future."

Here's Krauthammer's reaction to the very same speech Obama claims demonstrates his incredible grasp of world affairs:

Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that President Obama's attempt to lay out his foreign policy vision during his commencement address at West Point was "literally pointless. It didn't have a point, it was a defensive speech."
