    Source: Obama given detailed intelligence for a year about rise of ISIS

    >" President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News.

    The official -- who asked not to be identified because the President's Daily Brief is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product analyzing sensitive international events for the president -- said the data was strong and "granular" in detail.

    The source said a policymaker "could not come away with any other impression: This is getting bad."

    Obama, unlike his predecessors who traditionally had the document briefed to them, is known to personally read the daily brief. The former Pentagon official, who has knowledge of the process, said Obama generally was not known to come back to the intelligence community with further requests for information based on the daily report..."<

    Incompetence is one thing, it's expected, Obama is nothing more than a community organiser. But dereliction of duty as CnC Dereliction of duty falls under United States Code Title 10 § 892. Article 92

    Obama has been informed of ISIS for over a year and he doesn't have a strategy yet to deal with ISIS ?

    So? And what is ISIS? In 2004, ISIL was recognized by the State Department as a Foreign Terrorist organization, and nothing was done about it then, and no one on the right stressed about it. In May 2014, ISIS was added by the SD as an alias of ISIL. Basically the group has existed since at least 2004. I don't see why it is more of an imminent threat now than it has been for a decade.

    Back in 2004 G.W. Bush was POTUS and Al Qaeda and Islamist radicals were being decimated and were on the run.

    Any thing else ?

    Yes, in 2004, W. Bush was POTUS; he got distracted from the pursuit of Osama, so what is your proof that Al Qaeda and Islamist radicals were being decimated and on the run during his administration? It seems to me that Obama has utilized drones and gone after Al Qaeda more so than W. Bush.

    By 2004 Osama bin Laden was forced into early retirement, he was so hot he had to go into hiding. OBL was a nobody after his assesses were confiscated by the Obama administration, he could no longer finance any more terrorist attacks on America.

    The left thought Al Qaeda and the war against terrorism was all about Bin Laden.

    What's even worst is that the left including the Obama administration politicized the war against Al Qaeda and all of it's splinter groups.

    Then can you explain why Terrorism is up by 59% from 2010 -2013? That Members have increased to over 100k and that attacks have tripled?

    Wow you do any thing for your dictator wouldn't you.

    Perhaps if your chosen looser in charge had left a base or two in Iraq he could have persisted in using drones their to keep extremist from killing people and expanding. But you and his ilk don't bother learning from history (like WWI) so repeat it at the cost of lives.
