Ted Cruz adviser Amanda Carpenter retweeted this:

Perhaps Obama will read about it in the newspaper … or at NRO:

Al-Qaeda, the Obama administration has told us repeatedly, is on the path to defeat. Now it’s literally on the road to Baghdad.

This week, al-Qaeda in Iraq, now known as ISIS, retook Iraq’s second city, Mosul, where it put up its last spasms of resistance back in 2008. Then it retook Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s hometown, and reports suggest it’s moving rapidly toward Iraq’s capital city.

Newspaper? NRO? Never mind.

But surely the Obama admin is on it, right?
