REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The United States carried out more strikes against ISIS yesterday, including ones around the predominantly Kurdish town of Kobani in Syria.

Other strikes hit ISIS targets in Iraq, northwest of Musol.

Britain now joins the U.S. and France as countries that have conducted airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq.

But only the U.S. – in partnership with some Arab countries – has struck ISIS position in neighboring Syria.

According to the United Nations, the civilian casualties in a recent blast in Syria has climbed to 39 – with at least 30 children between the ages of six and nine killed.

An explosives-packed car was detonated minutes before a suicide bomber blew himself up in front of the school yesterday.

Meanwhile, following President Obama’s admitting that the United States failed to realize the threat posed by the terror group ISIS, the White House says the president did not intend to blame the intelligence community, but denies he ignored ISIS warnings for months – accusations made by GOP lawmakers and some intelligence officials.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper defended his team, saying his officers have been on the case for a while, and that he’s proud of the intelligence community’s efforts over the past two years to monitor ISIS.

    Mullah Obama going to attack his cronies in ISIS, just enough
    for appearances and nothing more. Obama’s girly man government
    has so many Muslim Brotherhood, anti-American shills, Marxists,
    Socialists, Leftist and criminals looting our treasury and scamming
    every government action, it boggles the mind to expect anything
    from him that is honest.
