Veteran journalist Bob Woodward joined Chris Wallace on Fox News’ Fox News Sunday and told the host that people in the military are complaining the Obama administration is handcuffing and “micromanaging” military coordination. He said the administration doesn’t have a plan to defeat ISIS and that National Security Advisor Susan Rice is controlling the military generals.
“They [the Obama administration] have not sat down and said, ‘This is where we want to go and this is how we want to do it,’” Woodward said. “And the measure of that, when you get in the weeds here – people from the White House are micromanaging the tactical situation on a daily and weekly basis.”
“That’s not their job…” he added.
Wallace interjected and asked Woodward if he thought Rice was ordering and commanding the generals.
“They’ve got all these people in the White House – you talk to people in the military who were there and they say, ‘We are being micromanaged, and we’re not given a real plan to say what are we going to do here,’” Woodward said. “It’s not the way to run a war or try to win a war.”
