WATCH: Lindsey Graham Flips Out Over Obama’s ‘Delusional’ ISIS Plan

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has been pushing for aggressive action against ISIS and warning about the terrorist group’s threat to the homeland, on Sunday seemed unable to deal with President Obama’s Middle East policy any longer.

“It’s going to take an army to beat an army, and this idea we’ll never have any boots on the ground to defeat them in Syria is fantasy, and all this has come home to roost over the last three years of incompetent decisions,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.” “It’s delusional in the way they approach this.”

As Graham continued to bash Obama’s plan to defeat ISIS, he became more and more heated.

“There is no way in hell you can form an army on the ground to go into Syria to destroy ISIL without a substantial American component,” he said.

“This is a war we’re fighting! It is not a counter-terrorism operation,” he continued. “This president needs to rise to the occasion before we all get killed back here at home.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
