The Young Turks - 9.11.14: Obama's ISIS Strategy, GOP Reaction & Another Michael Brown Shooting Tape
Cenk hosting. In a prime time address last night to the nation, President Obama has authorized air strikes in Syria and Iraq to fight against ISIS. President Obama said that it is “America that has the will and the capacity to mobilize against terrorism”. President Obama mentioned that there is “no plotting” or current plans from ISIS to attack America. President Obama has not pursued congressional authority for the air strikes. Chuck Hagel says that ISIS is “an imminent threat” to every interest we have. Cenk breaks down the real reason why we are pursuing ISIS and reveals many sources like the NY Times mentioning that there is no corroborative evidence regarding ISIS planning to attack the US. Ted Cruz ,appearing on Fox News, gives his reaction to the speech mentioning that President Obama’s remarks are “fundamentally unserious” and manufactures a new Republican talking point calling it the “Obama/Clinton foreign policy”. Marco Rubio also appears on Fox News and joins in on that talking point.
