In response to a question, Pres Obama says he won't offer a timetable on how long US airstrikes will continue in Iraq.

Did we underestimate ISIS? "There is no doubt" that their movement has been "more rapid" than anticipated, Obama says.

James Oliphant ‏@jamesoliphant 16s

This is a statement that sounds much more like the beginning of something than the end of it.


BI: Politics ‏@bi_politics 23s

Obama says he will consider broader use of military strikes in Iraq http://


James Oliphant ‏@jamesoliphant 5s

Obama: "The US military can't do it for them." But it sounds like Iraq can't do it w/o the US military

Obama being self-generous with his narrative here. Maliki was clearly open to being persuaded on US troop immunity / inviting troops to stay

Pres Obama says its "bogus" to blame him for not leaving US ground forces in Iraq. Says it was the Iraqi decision.

"Self-candid" -- nice way to describe Obama just now, somewhere between truth and a lie.

What happen to Obama's famous, "Duty to protect" doctrine, the one he used to step on Congress like a bug and start a war in Libya?
 
We only have a 'duty to protect' Libyans?
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
