Andy Kim made his bid for New Jersey’s 3rd official today – and the time he spent working for President Obama seems to be the centerpiece of his campaign. Bold move on his part…
Here’s a quick recap of what happened during the years Kim was ‘directing strategy’ in Iraq:
2013: Fallujah and parts of Ramadi fall. ISIS continues taking over large swaths of the country.
2014: American journalist James Foley is beheaded. Mosul falls. President Obama announces America has no strategy to stop ISIS and calls them the “JV team.”
2015: ISIS seizes Palmyra and gains full control of Ramadi.
Under Andy Kim’s watch, the United States failed to grasp the threat ISIS presented to the world and failed to formulate a strategy to stop them.
If that’s what Kim considers a record of success, what does failure even look like?
