REWOOD CITY, Calif. – America’s commander in chief admits that the United States failed to realize the threat posed by the terror group ISIS.

In an interview broadcast Sunday night, President Barack Obama admitted that the United States made a mistake by relying on an already doomed Iraqi army to fight ISIS off.

Pres. Obama said he agrees with National Director of Intelligence James Clapper’s recent assessment that the United States underestimated the Islamic State.

“They were able to reconstitute themselves, and take advantage of the chaos, and attract foreign fighters– who believed in their jihadist nonsense, and traveled everywhere from Europe to the United States to Australia, to other parts of the Muslim world, converging on Syria. So this has become ground zero for jihadists around the world.” Obama told CBS News.

Despite acknowleding that the United States bungled the initial response to ISIS, Pres. Obama said the United States takes its role in leading the fight against the terror group seriously.

“Our military is the best in the history of the world, and when trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don’t call beijing. They don’t call Moscow. They call us. That’s how we roll. And that’s what makes this America.”

      His modus operandi is to blame others for everything. His mouth is his biggest enemy. Daily he spews forth nonsensical rhetoric that includes ridiculous, hyperbolic statements and false accusations that have no business coming from the mouth of the president of ALL the people.
