Then why Sh76?
Why does he prefer ISIL to ISIS? It would be nice if a reporter would ask this question, but that cannot happen because this is the USA and Presidents should not be asked questions like that when Obama is trying to come up with a strategy.
BTW, how can someone say they are bombing people without a strategy? Obama isn't that stupid. He must be saying that so people will criticize him and feel he has to go along with the majority of Americans who are outraged by those videos that don't show beheadings but think they do.
Have you seen a video of the beheadings Sh76?
