Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken on Tuesday said that recent “indiscriminate” terror attacks are actually a measure of success that the U.S. is having in combating the Islamic State terrorist group, saying the attacks are occurring as the group’s territory and resources are being taken away from them.
“What we’re seeing, I think, is ISIS actually lashing out,” Mr. Blinken said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “Because against every way we measure this — the territory they control, the number of foreign fighters and fighters overall, the money, the propaganda — they are down against every single measure.”
So stepping up terrorism across the world is a sign that ISIS is losing. No a sign ISIS is losing is if nations would step up and take terrorism seriously and not help it along by ignoring signs and wiping data from files.
Country after country is feeling the folly of allowing “refugees” into their nations and not keeping a tight rein on them.
