President Obama and the ISIS flag.

President Barack Obama has blamed the media for the lack of enthusiasm for his “strategy” to defeat the Islamic State (ISIS).

In an interview with NPR last week, he was asked, “What is the public missing about your strategy? And I say that simply because, according to polls, you don’t have very much approval for it.”

President Obama charged that the media is chasing ratings, but it recently was leaked that he seems to be out of touch with American fears of the ISIS.

The New York Times recently reported that he said in an off-the-record meeting that he didn’t realize how much Americans are afraid of ISIS. The Times later removed the comment from its website.

In the interview with NPR, he explained away criticism of his war on ISIS:

Well, I think what’s fair is, post-Paris, you had a saturation of news about the horrible attack there, and ISIL combines viciousness with very savvy media operations.

And as a consequence, if you’ve been watching television for the last month, all you’ve been seeing, all you’ve been hearing about is these guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you, so I understand why people are concerned about it.

  1. Mr. President, don't be an idiot, it was the "lack" of reporting… Islamic terrorism, terrorist recruitment, internet terrorism, the cancerour spread of Islamic fundamentalism and it's violent encroachment upon free societies worldwide… "before" Paris (pre-Paris) that's the issue !

  3. correct, look how they let obama get away with breaking law every single day of his 7 years. they hide it all or laugh it away. obama started and funds ISIS so he cant have anyone afraid of his little play things can he? dotn trust anything this man says, nothing is ever the truth

  4. I think that everyone is forgetting that G-d runs the world. How else could someone like this have been elected. He is so clueless to what is happening around him. Every decision makes you think you're not hearing right ,'cause no one can
    believe that he actually believes what he is saying or doing. The more mind boggling the comments and decisions the more we should be aware that G-d is guiding all this to a purpose. It would not be possible otherwise to be so brainless in decisions.

  5. Obama, stop denying your own agenda. You are the one that promoted and are to blame for the present ISIS and Iran condition. So do not blame the media.
    We do not hear you condemning or criticising the Media when wrong and negative reporting that is constantly reported about Israel.
