Giuliani Just Revealed EXACTLY What ISIS Is In 5 Words Obama Won’t Want You To Hear

The foreign policy ineptitude demonstrated by President Obama created the conditions where ISIS could grow, thrive, and now slaughter victims in Europe former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said this week.

“ISIS is filling a vacuum created by a vacuous foreign policy,” Giuliani said Monday on Fax News. “ISIS is an Obama creation.”

“This did not have to happen if our policies were different,” Giuliani said. “If President Obama had listened to Senator McCain and Senator Graham and a whole group of other people, and had set up a no-fly zone in Syria five years ago — if we had gone in and worked with the Syrian legitimate rebels…If we had not taken our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, ISIS never would have emerged.”

If we had 50 or 60,000 troops in Iraq, we would have been getting the intelligence that would have told us about the development of ISIS. And that would have been given to the CIA,” Giuliani said.

“Once you take your troops out, we have no resources, we have no real access,” Giuliani declared. “Here’s the simple fact, and this goes back to President Bush, some American president has to hold a speech at night and say to the American people, ‘We have to be in the Middle East until the threat against us is over.’ Just the way we were in Germany. Just the way we were in Italy. Just the way we are now in South Korea.”

Giuliani said Monday that the aftermath of the Paris attacks took him back to the events of September 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked New York City.

“This has been a very difficult weekend for me because it brings back September 11 and all the terrible memories I have of it,” he said. “And the thought then, when President Bush, you know, acted so decisively and so quickly, that maybe something like this wouldn’t happen again.”

WATCH: Fox News Host EXPLODES On Ex-CIA Guest For Making 1 Comment That Stuns Him – ‘Excuse Me?’

US airstrikes hit a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, and killed more than 30 staff members and patients on October 3rd of this year.

Doctors Without Borders, an international medical organization, released its initial review of the attack on Thursday, and stated that: “Patients were burned in their beds, medical staff were decapitated and lost limbs, and others were shot by the circling AC-130 gunship while fleeing the burning building.”

The Pentagon has called the bombing a “mistake.”

Barack Obama issued an apology to the organization several days after the attack.

On Thursday, Fox News host Shepard Smith invited an ex-CIA covert officer, Joshua Katz, on to his program to discuss the deadly airstrikes.

It didn’t take long for the clash between Smith and Katz to start.

Katz stated: “We have Doctors Without Borders who in all cases are actually providing material support to terrorists. They have knowingly and willingly admitted.”

Smith was startled by the comment, and quickly said: “Excuse me?”

Katz then said: “Doctors Without Borders here, Shep, has said that they have provided support to the Taliban.”

Smith began to argue back: “Oh hang on. What doctors do is treat the wounded in war zones since time began. Are you suggesting here that they should not have treated members of the–the ‘terrorists’ as you call them, when they were bleeding and at their doorstep. They should have said ‘No go away’?”

Smith then said he found Katz’s comment “disgusting.”

The two continued to argue throughout the segment.

What do you think of Katz telling Shepard Smith, in reference to the airstrikes, that Doctors Without Borders was “providing material support to terrorists?”

Huckabee Slams Obama On Afghanistan

A Republican presidential candidate has slammed President Barack Obama’s recent decision to keep troops in Afghanistan.

In a speech Thursday, Obama announced U.S. forces would remain in Afghanistan at least through the rest of 2016. In yet another delay, this is now America’s longest war.

Former Arkansas Governor and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says the president’s policies have been a secession of failures.

“This is a president who is going to reset the relationship with Russia – we see how that went,” said Huckabee. “He picked the wrong side in Egypt, he misjudged how things were standing in Yemen, totally missed what was happening in Libya and put a red line in Syria and didn’t hold anyone accountable.”

Huckabee tells USA News he believes that many find the president is incapable of making a solid foreign policy decision – including Afghanistan.

Obama Is About To Destroy One Of The Biggest Goals Of His Presidency With This Announcement

As candidate for president in 2008, President Obama vowed, “I will end this war in Iraq responsibly and finish the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan.” Now, almost seven years later we know he will leave office with troops in both nations.

President Obama was set to announce Thursday that the United States will keep 5,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan when he leaves office in 2017.

Obama’s plan calls for maintaining the current force of 9,800 troops in Afghanistan through most of 2016. The pace of the withdrawals is to be determined by the military.

“This is this administration pushing this off to the next administration because the next time they have to make this decision, it will be a different president in the White House,” said retired Lt. Col. Rick Francona, a CNN military analyst. He labeled the decision “kicking this can down the road.”

In March, Obama had called for a level of 5,500 troops by the end of this year and an “embassy-only” presence by the end of 2016.

In reporting about the announcement, Fox News cited two reasons for the continued American presence in Afghanistan.

Late last month, Taliban troops overran the key city of Kunduz in northern Afghanistan. A long-running battle for control ensued.

Further, Fox News reported than American commanders are worried that ISIS will expand its presence in Afghanistan and recruit Taliban fighters to join its army.

Last spring Obama trumpeted his plan to withdraw troops from Afghanistan during this year.

“We will bring America’s longest war to a responsible end,” Obama said in May 2014. “Americans have learned that it’s harder to end wars than it is to begin them,” he added. It seems those words ring ever true in light of his current announcement.

Obama withdrew U.S. troops from Iraq in 2011, before sending others back in 2013 to deal with the threat posed by ISIS. That commitment is also expected to last beyond Obama’s presidency.

Politicians Exploit School Shooting, But Ignore Bombing Victims

Following the recent Oregon school shooting, many politicians rushed to the microphones to call for new gun control laws. President Obama even called on gun control supporters to “politicize” the shooting, while some members of Congress worked to establish a special commission on gun violence.

The reaction to the shooting stands in stark contrast to the reaction to the U.S. military’s bombing of an Afghanistan hospital run by the international humanitarian (and Nobel Peace Prize winning) group Doctors Without Borders.

Our Nobel Peace Prize winning president did apologize to his fellow Nobel laureate for the bombing. However, President Obama has not “politicized” this tragedy by using it to justify ending military involvement in Afghanistan. No one in Congress is pushing for a special commission to examine the human costs of U.S. militarism, and the mainstream media has largely ignored Doctors Without Borders’ accusation that the bombing constitutes a war crime.

The reason for the different reactions to these two events is that politicians prefer to focus on events they can “politicize” to increase government power. In contrast, politicians ignore incidents that raise uncomfortable questions about US foreign policy.

If the political and media elites were really interested in preventing future mass shootings, they would repeal the federal “gun-free” schools law, for example. By letting shooters know that their intended victims are defenseless, the gun-free schools law turns schoolchildren into easy targets.

Even some who oppose gun control are using the shooting to justify expanding federal power instead of trying to repeal unconstitutional laws. Some opponents of new gun control laws say Congress should expand the federal role in identifying, tracking, and treating those with “mental health problems.” This ignores the fact that many shooters were using psychotropic drugs prescribed by a mental health professional when they committed the horrible acts. Furthermore, creating a system to identify and track anyone with a “mental health problem” could deny respect for individuals’ Second Amendment and other rights because they perhaps once sought counseling for depression while going through a divorce or coping with a loved one’s passing.

While our political and media elites are eager to debate how much liberty people must sacrifice for safety, they are desperate to avoid debating the morality of our foreign policy. To admit that the U.S. military sometimes commits immoral acts is to admit that the US government is not an unalloyed force for good. Even many opponents of our recent wars support using the US military for “humanitarian” purposes. Thus, they are as reluctant as the neoconservatives to question the fundamental goodness of U.S. foreign policy.

Anyone who raises constitutional or moral objections to the U.S. use of drones, bombs, indefinite detention, and torture risks being attacked as anti-American and soft on terrorism. The smear of “terrorist apologist” is also hurled at those who dare suggest that it is our interventionist foreign policy, not a hatred of freedom, that causes people in other countries to dislike the United States. Which is a more logical explanation for why someone would resent America — a family member killed in a drone attack launched by the U.S. military, or rage over our abundance of liberty?

The disparate reactions to the Oregon school shooting and the Afghanistan hospital bombing shows the political class is unwilling and unable to acknowledge that the U.S. government cannot run the world, run our lives, or run the economy. Clearly, politicians will never stop expanding government and give us back our lost liberties unless and until the people demand it.
