Just two weeks ago, CIA chief John Brennan said that despite the president’s depiction of ISIS as a demoralized, contained JV team composed of widows and orphans on the run, “our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorist capability and global reach.”

The president has promised to get tough on terrorists, but following the attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Attorney General Loretta Lynch declared that “our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity and it’s love.” And airstrikes.
