Back in 2014 Obama claimed that the war in Afghanistan was over and that he wished for all operations there to be finished. Now it seems that he thinks the battle against radical Muslims has been won.
He is trying to deceive the American public when it is clear as night that this war is only just beginning.
It was General John Campbell, the commander of all of the US forces and NATO who said that the Islamic State group have been growing rapidly in Afghanistan and they are likely planning to stroke against America.
“They don’t have the capability right now to attack Europe, or attack the homeland, the United States, but that’s what they want to do, they’ve said that’s what they want to do,” Campbell told the Associated Press in an interview.
The group is said to have “progressed from its initial exploratory phase to a point where they are openly fighting the Taliban for the establishment of a safe haven, and are becoming more operationally active.”
The warning Campbell made was also echoed by the chairman for the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism.
“It’s definitely growing,” Rep. Robert Pittenger told reporters. “It started out as a small colony, down in the southeastern border, but they’re definitely growing in the region. Their presence poses a threat to the United States. They’re clearly focused on attacking U.S. interests. It’s a very conflicted and very challenging situation.”
“I think if we left, it would all collapse,” Pittenger continued. “No different than what happened in Iraq.”
