At 12:32 this morning, a hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 leaked documents obtained from Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s personal computer that suggest she’s known for two years that the airstrikes proposed by President Obama are not capable of defeating ISIS.

The document was sent by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in October 2014, and definitively states that “Airstrikes alone won’t defeat ISIS.”
Despite Rep. Pelosi knowing this for nearly two years, she’s continued to defend President Obama’s foreign policy stance, even going so far as to confirm that “ISIS was contained” back in November 2015.
“The president has engaged with more than 65 other countries to defeat ISIS,” she said during a press briefing. “The president knows better than any of us the threat that they pose to the security of the world and to the American people.”
Pelosi says "ISIS is losing on the battlefield" & they are encouraging things like the #NiceAttack to show strength
