WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday that President Barack Obama was an “anti-war president.”
“The world is starving for American leadership. But America has an anti-war president,” the Ohio Republican told reporters. “We have no strategy, overarching strategy, to deal with the growing terrorist threat. And it’s not just ISIS or Al-Qaeda or all of their affiliates. We’ve got a serious problem facing the world and America, by and large, is sitting on the sidelines.”
During his presidency Obama has overseen ongoing U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, launched an unprecedented drone war in Pakistan, and authorized military actions against Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia.
