Graham: Obama Bombing Iraq to ‘Avoid a Bad News Story’

Lindsey Graham on Sunday said that President Obama ordered air strikes on ISIS targets in Iraq in order to “avoid a bad news story.” The strikes, he argued, will not prevent the jihadist group from tightening its grip over the country or from plotting attacks on the U.S. 

The South Carolina senator called for a “sustained air campaign” in both Syria and Iraq, arguing that ISIS’s presence in the two countries represents a “direct threat to our homeland.” 

“Mr. President, be honest with the American people about the threats we face,” Graham told Fox News’s Chris Wallace. “If he does not go on the offensive against ISIS, ISIL, whatever you want to call these guys, they are coming here. This is not just about Baghdad. This is not just about Syria. It is about our homeland, and if we get attacked because he has no strategy to project us, then he will have committed a blunder for the ages.”
