Lies are not the way forward

Full text of ISIS speech.
My fellow Americans...
I'm going to let that one slide. degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL.
He has no such intent. If he did, we'd all support him. He will do only as much as politics forces him to do. Look at the mess he is making in Yemen with drone strikes.
my highest priority is the security of the American people
The only reason his nose didn't grow is because as a sociopath he has the ability to believe what he says for the moment he's saying it. The expiration date on this one was the moment after he said it.
we have consistently taken the fight to terrorists who threaten our country
Feckless (lacking initiative or strength of character; irresponsible) is the only consistency.
...America is safer
No, it is not.
the greatest threats come from the Middle East and North Africa
This dunce has no clue where our greatest threat comes from. Not having that clue, is by itself, a greater threat to our future security.
ISIL is not “Islamic.”
Are they Buddhists? Are they Christian? A frat party?
No religion condones the killing of innocents
Oh crap! My meter just broke. He's actually not lying here because YOU AREN'T INNOCENT to this closet muslim.
[ISIL] has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way
It's precisely because of their warped vision that they are a threat.
these terrorists are unique in their brutality
The religion of peace never cuts off heads or kills others.
...the United States of America is meeting [these threats] with strength and resolve
See feckless above.
...destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy
He will announce them destroyed at some point. "The hydra is dead. We cut off one of it's heads."
we will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are
"To the gates of hell."
a core principle of my presidency
Does he know the meaning of principle?
if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven
We'll give you, money, weapons, aid and comfort, but havens you're on your own... unless you think you can get across our incredibly secure borders.
I again call on Congress to give us additional authorities and resources to train and equip these fighters
Not a lie, but exactly who are these Syrian fighters? Another hydra head perhaps?
we will redouble our efforts to cut off its funding
What is double of zero? Since we fund them, will we double that too? Oh, that was answered in the previous statement.
improve our intelligence
"We are the smartest. So we are going to be double smart. No... triple smart."
counter its warped ideology
"Sounds good. Do you think our stupid voters will buy this?"
stem the flow of foreign fighters
"Trust us. Haven't we proved how good we are?"
We cannot allow these communities to be driven from their ancient homelands
"When they are, as they already have been, just forget I said this."
This is our strategy
Like he knows the meaning of the word.
This is American leadership at its best
He won a Nobel peace prize, you know. The world is a much safer place with Obama in charge. All this talk of Obama diminishing America in the world is... well never mind what it is.
we stand with people who fight for their own freedom
By giving aid, comfort and more to their enemies.
I believe we are strongest as a nation when the President and Congress work together
"I won, so shut up."
[This strategy of covering our political butts] we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years
If you define success as making things worse. Drone strikes are not a winning strategy.
Next week marks 6 years since our economy suffered its worst setback since the Great Depression.
Who did we elect president six years ago? Hmmmm? Then he digresses into platitudes...
uphold the values that we stand for
Who's this we? Define: American exceptionalism. Say Corpsman.
May God bless our troops, and may God bless the United States of America
Allahu akbar.

Well said.

There was so much wrong with that speech that a thorough fisking would be longer than the speech itself.

Gee, I wonder why he didn't cite Libya as an example of success? It's by far the closest operational match for what he's proposing. What could possibly go wrong?
(perhaps we could ask the terrorists having pool parties at our Tripoli embassy for advice?)
