In an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer that aired on “Today” this morning, President Obama said that the people of the Syrian region will eventually discover that ISIS is nothing but a blind alley, and the terror group will be long gone by the time his daughters reach his age. That must be what White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest meant last summer when he said he “wouldn’t put any sort of timeline” on the president’s latest strategy to bench the terrorist JV team ISIS.

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren found the dismissal of ISIS as a “blind alley” hard to believe.
