Giuliani: In six months US military ‘could take out ISIS completely’

If it weren’t for President Barack Obama, Rudy Giuliani says, the Islamic State could have been defeated by now.

The former New York City mayor  thinks ISIS is a threat the U.S. military could eliminate within months if led by a good commander in chief.

Giuliani appeared on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Thursday in the lead-up to the Fourth of July weekend to discuss the increase in security nationwide as chatter indicated ISIS followers might look to attack during the holiday.

“I believe, if the U.S. wanted to, in six months we could take out ISIS completely,” he told host Martha MacCallum. “ISIS is a threat that a good president, with the military we have, would take out in six months.”

He said that three years ago Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. John McCain wanted to send special forces into Syria to nip the threat in the bud, and praised President George W. Bush for keeping America safe after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 by taking the fight to the terrorists in the Middle East.

“Whatever you think of President Bush, I happen to love him, this man kept us safe. Those people who got hurt and died, they kept us safe,” he said. “When you’re fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, you can’t be planning attacks on the Mall of America.”

He said the Obama strategy of pulling troops out and relying on drone strikes to kill terrorists is depriving the nation of valuable intelligence.

“We’re not with the people there listening to the gossip. We’re not arresting the terrorists and questioning them and getting their information.” Giuliani said. “So, we don’t have the kind of information we had, say six or seven years ago, when we had 100,000 troops there. They gather a tremendous amount of information.”

Maybe some of the terrorists Obama keeps releasing from Guantanamo Bay could give us some information.
