The Pentagon has not conducted airstrikes against an estimated 60 Islamic State (IS) training camps that are supplying thousands of fighters each month to the terror group, according to defense and intelligence officials.

War strategy based on myths and lies is a recipe for crushing failure. Obama’s war strategy is to convince Americans that the Islamic State is not Islamic. That the quranic texts and teachings that jihadists invoke are not quranic.

My concern and those of my colleagues is what happens when American Muslims and other foreign fighters eventually return to their home countries in Europe and North America to carry out jihad terror attacks.

“If we know the location of these camps, and the president wants to destroy ISIS, why are the camps still functioning?”

U.S. intelligence analysts keep saying that the American-led campaign against ISIS isn’t going so well. Their bosses keep telling them to think again about those conclusions.

Senior military and intelligence officials have inappropriately pressured U.S. terrorism analysts to alter their assessments about the strength of the self-proclaimed Islamic State, three sources familiar with the matter told The Daily Beast. Analysts have been pushed to portray the group as weaker than the analysts believe it actually is, according to these sources, and to paint an overly rosy picture about how well the U.S.-led effort to defeat the group is going.

Reports that have been deemed too pessimistic about the efficacy of the American-led campaign, or that have questioned whether a U.S.-trained Iraqi military can ultimately defeat ISIS, have been sent back down through the chain of command or haven’t been shared with senior policymakers, several analysts alleged.

Why hasn’t President Obama authorized the bombing of ISIS training camps?
Why didn’t President Obama authorize support when our consulate was under terrorist attack in Benghazi?
Why didn’t President Obama back President Sisi against the terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood?
Why did President Obama halt Israeli arms transfer to Nigeria to fight Boko Haram?
Why did President Obama continue to arm and aid “rebels” (“moderate al Qaeda”) in Syria when those arms would going straight into the hands of the Islamic State?

It’s all of a piece.

“The failure to target the training camps with U.S. and allied airstrikes is raising questions among some defense and intelligence officials about the commitment of President Obama and his senior aides to the current anti-IS strategy of degrading and ultimately destroying the terror group.”

“Pentagon Not Targeting Islamic State Training Camps,” BY: Bill Gertz, Free Beacon, August 28, 2015
No airstrikes against 60 camps producing 1,000 fighters monthly (Updated)

The Pentagon has not conducted airstrikes against an estimated 60 Islamic State (IS) training camps that are supplying thousands of fighters each month to the terror group, according to defense and intelligence officials.

The camps are spread throughout Islamic State-controlled areas of Iraq and Syria and are off limits in the U.S.-led international bombing campaign because of concerns about collateral damage, said officials familiar with planning and execution of the yearlong bombing campaign.

Additionally, the IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) camps have been so successful that Islamic State leaders are considering expanding the camps to Libya and Yemen. Both states have become largely ungoverned areas in recent years.

The failure to target the training camps with U.S. and allied airstrikes is raising questions among some defense and intelligence officials about the commitment of President Obama and his senior aides to the current anti-IS strategy of degrading and ultimately destroying the terror group.

“If we know the location of these camps, and the president wants to destroy ISIS, why are the camps still functioning?” one official critical of the policy asked.

The camps are regarded by U.S. intelligence analysts as a key element in the terror group’s successes in holding and taking new territory. The main benefit of the training camps is that they are providing a continuous supply of new fighters.

An additional worry of intelligence analysts is that some of the foreign fighters being trained in the camps will eventually return to their home countries in Europe and North America to carry out terror attacks.

A White House spokesman declined to comment on the failure to bomb the terror camps and referred questions to the Pentagon.
