    Because Jihaders from various groups have realized over the years that making wild claims and unsupported boasts only hurts them in the long run. So does concealing the number of casualties they have taken.

    As a result, the various Al Queda groups- yes, I know that ISIS is not Al Queda, have quickly acknowledged and reported casualties. Likewise, Hamas and Hezbollah have been generally willing to acknowledge deaths from Israeli military actions and publically acknowledge casualties via paying out death benefits.

    You seem to have difficulty grasping the concept that one can, at the same time, be:
    A. A terrorist
    B for varying motivations, truthful

    I never said I took the word of ISIS unchallenged. Rather, I always took the totality of their claim and the other factors to draw a conclusion that they may well be telling the truth.

    Isis surely has something to boast about now, thanks to Obama.


    WE UNDERESTIMATED ISIS.

    Obama does not care what ISIS knows, he's only fighting for democrat party votes in november. He wouldnt have warned them over 10 days before we first struck if he was serious.

    I am not commenting on Isis claims,I am using common sense. When you tell the enemy you are going to bomb them months ahead of doing so, what do you think they will do? You don't think they will empty building full of war supplies and disperse it or even put it in schools and hospitals? Come on dude you have to be smarter than that.

    He gave them well over 10 days notice. Long enough to move to civilian areas and to hide what they needed to. Our President is incompetent.

    He should have made the announcement of strikes as they were happening.

    As is all too often demonstrated with Obama-too little too late. Its like he's trying to sabotage himself.

    Of course, that's not exactly how it happened either, but I do not expect honesty from you.
