What This Leading Liberal Website Just Said About Obama Could Send Dems Into A Midterms Panic“Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bullsh***ing,” NORVELL ROSE — SEPTEMBER 29, 2014To hear President Obama Sunday Night on “60 Minutes” talking about the rise of ISIS, you’d think the radical group of Islamists pretty much came out of nowhere — that its formidable emergence onto the terror scene was a real surprise.In fact, in the “60 Minutes” interview with Steve Kroft, Obama threw his intelligence experts under the bus, saying they were seriously caught off guard by the sudden threat posed by the Islamic State.AdvertisementHowever, Obama’s characterization of the ISIS threat simply isn’t true, according to a report on one of the leading liberal websites — a site that regularly and reliably supports and defends Obama — The Daily Beast.

Considering how The Daily Beast is so often and so firmly in the liberal camp, it’s rather remarkable to see the detail with which its report lays out the case that Obama was either not paying attention to intelligence reports on ISIS or is now being untruthful.
In an extensive opinion piece on foxnews.com earlier this month, author Richard Grenell also observed that Obama has either downplayed the threat of Islamic terrorism or expressed surprise and dismay when it rears its ugly head.Advertisement
