Not even a year ago, President Obama pledged to bring down ISIS:

Let’s check in and see how the “JV team” has been brought to its knees since then:

Despite recent developments with Turkey allowing the U.S. to conduct strikes from their bases, the radical Islamic caliphate is showing strong resistance, and their numbers continue to multiply.

“To quote one U.S. official, ISIS’s international branches are growing like crazy,” Engel said on Meet the Press. “ISIS has spread rapidly across north and west Africa, Arabia, Afghanistan, even into the far east. ISIS has expanded far more quickly and extensively than al Qaeda ever did.”

All while a Pentagon inspector general is investigating allegations that intelligence assessments have been skewed to back-burner reality and instead support White House claims that ISIS is losing.

But you know what all this means, right? Time to escalate the war against climate change!
