MSNBC’s Ed Schultz is none too thrilled with the plan to fight ISIS that President Barack Obama articulated Wednesday night. Mostly because it didn’t include a definitive end date.
Though Schultz had just called on Obama to include ground troops as a possible option in fighting the Islamic terrorist network (Ed, ally of the working man, doesn’t want to “outsource” American Freedom), he knocked Obama for not offering an “exit strategy.”
“No conversation about an exit strategy,” Schultz tweeted Thursday in regards to Obama’s speech. “Ok, a plan with no understanding of conclusion.”
The Obama administration has stated that confronting ISIS’s threat to the U.S. is “ongoing” and will have to be a “sustained effort.”
During a conference call with White House senior officials following Obama’s speech, one was asked if Obama’s successor would still be dealing with the issue. The official said the administration would not “put a fixed date” on the mission to “destroy” ISIS.
The tweet below:
No conversation about an exit strategy. Ok , a plan with no understanding of conclusion.
