Obama-Bush security expert admits ISIS is defeated

December 29, 2018

  In addition to James Mattis stepping down in the wake of Donald Trump’s announcement that the United States would be pulling our troops out of Syria because ISIS was defeated, Democrats and their supporters suddenly became warmongering hawks who felt it was wrong to stop an endless war after years of calling for just that.

  Democrats called this a surrender to Russia and Facebook was filled with memes calling Donald Trump a traitor and his supporters stupid for believing ISIS was defeated. Maybe, just maybe, in their hatred of all things Donald Trump the left was actually routing for ISIS and because of this their view was clouded and they could not see clearly.

  It looks like Donald Trump might have been right when he basically declared the war on ISIS over because now a security expert for both George Bush and Barack Obama has admitted that Donald Trump’s policies have defeated ISIS.

  Here is more: 

Douglas Ollivant, former Iraq director at the National Security Council under President’s George W. Bush and Barack Obama, said on Friday that the Islamic State (ISIS) is defeated and President Donald Trump has a “solid strategy” and is on the “right path” to confront the remaining terror threat.

He went on to say:

“Well, they’ve been defeated,” Ollivant said. “We use some different terms here in military speak. Defeated means you can’t do what you were trying to do before.”

“So ISIS is defeated in the sense that there is no – physical caliphate is the word that Brett McGurk uses,” Ollivant said. “I think we all know what that meant.”

“That has now shrunk down to pretty much nothingness. So in that sense, yes, they’re defeated,” Ollivant said, adding that ISIS is still a threat operating around the world, including Europe and the United States, independent of the caliphate.

“That center level, that core, the physical caliphate is gone,” Ollivant said. “And so I think to say that they are defeated in that sense is true.”

  Well that certainly does not fit the narrative the left has been trying to use to attack the President on his decision to leave Syria, does it? Of course you know what this means, it is only a matter of time before the left turns on Ollivant and calls him a traitor as well. The left is so blinded by hatred of the President that they just cannot stand any good news.
