Obama's (Pathetic) Black Knight Strategy

"Only a Setback" or "Only a Flesh Wound"?
As city after city falls to ISIS in Iraq, the Obama administration's strategy looks more and more like the Black Knight's in this classic Python scene. As the Obama approach gets "dis-armed"and "de-feeted" and prepares to be beheaded, administration spokespeople continue to minimize the losses that everyone else including the craven congressional Democrats recognize as dire blows as "setbacks".

It would be funny if it were not for the mockery it makes of the spilled blood. bereft parents, orphaned children, widowers, widows and insulted bravery of the American soldiers who secured all those cities during the American victories in Iraq.

I suppose when the black flag goes up over Baghdad they'll just say, "Alright, we'll call it a draw, then."
