President Obama has faced criticism for deflecting blame for Syria and Iraq onto U.S. intelligence officials for underestimating the threat of ISSL. Many Republicans believe that the rapid rise of Islamic State resulted from a political or policy failure. U.S. intelligence officials had warned publicly of the threat early this year, citing the testimony in February of Gen. Mike Flynn, who until last month was director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Under the circumstances do you think this was the best possible settlement?
