State Department Spokesidiot Marie Harf: We Cannot Kill Our Way Out of the IS Problem; We Have to Address The "Root Causes" And Give the IS Killers Jobs
Update: Job-Seeking IS Long-Term Unemployed Burn 45 People to Death in al-Baghdadi, Iraq

I cannot think of a better face for the Obama Administration foreign policy than this girlish, giggly retard.

She molests the truth like it's a drunken sorority sister.

See the link for the video. This is Chris Matthews interviewing her, dumbfounded that she thinks it's all a laugh.

MATTHEWS: "If I were ISIS, I wouldn't be afraid right now. I would figure there’' no existential threat to these people. They can keep finding places where they can hold executions and putting the camera work together, getting their props ready and killing people for show and nothing we do right now seems to be directed at stopping this."


HARF: "I think there is few stages here. Right now what we are doing is trying to take their leaders and their fighters off the battlefield in Iraq and in Syria. That’s really where they--"

MATTHEWS: "Are we killing enough of them?"

HARF: "We're killing a lot of them and we’re gonna keep killing more of them, so are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians, they are in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the longer term, medium and longer term, to go after the root causes that leads to join these groups whether it's lack of opportunity for jobs, whether it's--"

Bubbles Babblemouth didn't complete her thought, such as it was. How about, "Whether it's intense religious devotion to an apocalyptic version of 7th-century Islam?"

And so while Marie was putting together photo-collages of CUTE BOYS!!!, this happened.

The BBC:

Jihadist militants from Islamic State (IS) have burned to death 45 people in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi, the local police chief says.

Exactly who these people were and why they were killed is not clear, but Col Qasim al-Obeidi said he believed some were members of the security forces.

IS fighters captured much of the town, near Ain al-Asad air base, last week.

That's right where our troops are Sheltered in Place.

It is believed the job-seeking jihadis were on line hoping to get hired as greeters at Target when one among them said "Ah fuck this, let's start burning families to death," to the general approval of the queue.

Col Obeidi said a compound that houses the families of security personnel and local officials was now under attack.

He pleaded for help from the government and the international community.

The fighting and poor communications in the area make it difficult to confirm such reports.

They're trying to draw us out, I think. And we're so weakly positioned there we can't go out, because they'll massacre our troops to a man.

Well-played, Obama. Very well played.
