“Mission Accomplished” (You Dumb Clucks)

Posted on August 26, 2014

U.S. special operations forces under the Joint Special Operations Command and U.S. Special Operations Command keep close tabs on the military evolution of ISIS and both its combat and terrorism — called “asymmetric” — capabilities, officials told ABC News. A primary reason is in anticipation of possibly fighting them, which a full squadron of special mission unit operators did in the Independence Day raid on an ISIS camp in Raqqah, Syria.

“They’re incredible fighters. ISIS teams in many places use special operations TTPs,” said the second official, who has considerable combat experience, using the military term for “tactics, techniques and procedures.”

In sobering press conference Friday, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said ISIS has shown that it is “as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen.”

“They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded,” he said. “This is beyond anything that we’ve seen.”

  1. And ISIS is either in this country or will be soon. Obama keeps his head in the sand (trap) and refuses to see the obvious until some one shouts "FORE". There are well financed jihadist training camps in this country, hidden in remote areas. Certainly, over two dozen of them. With the success ISIS has had they will attach themselves to the new caliphate in a Baghdad second. There is their fifth column. The enemy behind our lines. I hope there are still some adults in Washington who, in spite of Obama's poor leadership, are watching the bad guys and are willing to deal with them.

  2. It doesnt take a military expert to figure that out about ISIS. They have already threatened us and beheaded a reporter and it sounds like our side is in awe of these so called liberators. Wonder where they got their training, weapons and funding? Maybe our government and later Saudi? Wouldn't be surprised!

  3. Maybe President Obama should attend security briefings.

    I believe you could bail Iraq out every 8 years for the rest of earths history, they would screw it up as soon as we gave it to them with a working model! I don't think we need to keep doing it! We will be under attack here from the southern border soon, by ISIS, al queada, Hamas, and all as they join hands to attack the west! We just keep their azzes out of america as they try to move here! That would be the best policy. Home grown schitt, non working, pee pee dancing idiots on 9-11. Put the cameras on them, they stop. This is a real bunch of pukes! Better close the southern border and start enforcing immigration laws! We need some politicians removed and replaced also, and the muslims out of the WH and DHS!
