Dem Sen. Feinstein: Obama Might Be ‘Too Cautious’ on ISIS

In a preview of her Meet the Press appearance tomorrow, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein talks ISIS and President Obama‘s response to it. And while she wasn’t ready to say anything terribly critical, she did admit that Obama might be a little “too cautious” when it comes to dealing with this foreign threat.

Andrea Mitchell brought up Obama’s “no strategy” comment and asked if that projects “weakness from the White House.” Feinstein immediately said, “I know what you want me to say, but I’m not going to say it in that sense.” She did go on to categorize the president as “very cautious [and] maybe in this instance, too cautious.”

Feinstein also believed Obama’s comment about groups like ISIS being JV teams compared to al-Qaeda was misguided and wrong. She said of ISIS, “I’ve seen nothing that compares with its viciousness.”
