Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham went easy on President Obama on Sunday, acknowledging that the appropriate response to the Islamic State’s advances in Iraq isn’t completely clear.
“I think it’s really hard. I don’t think you can judge how he did right now,” Ingraham said on “Fox News Sunday” about Obama’s decision to carry out airstrikes in Iraq. “We’re almost in an impossible situation. The American people really have no appetite for America to reengage. They don’t want us to go into Syria.”
She said that the president has been “reacting” to public opinion, but she noted that may not be the best strategy.
“If we do nothing here, then what?” she asked, adding that the U.S. announcing that there will be no boots in the ground may end up “empowering” the Islamic State.
But then she said she didn’t have the answers.
“I don’t know if there’s a good solution right now, which is a horrible thing to say for the United States of America,” she said.
“We tried to do all these things in Iraq, now Iraq is worse off. I mean, I hate to say that, but Iraq is worse than before we went in to Iraq,” she continued. “Christians are gone, there’s no sense of order at all. Saddam Hussein is gone. That’s a good thing, but what’s left? A more emboldened Islamic state.”
