‘Your Closely Watching People Being Slaughtered’: Reporters Erupt Over Obama’s ISIS Inaction

August 7, 2014

Thursday at the White House daily briefing, CBS’s Major Garrett, Fox News Channel’s Ed Henry and ABC’s Jonathan Karl took White House press secretary Josh Earnest to task for his answer that in the face of tens of thousands of Christians and ethic minorities being slaughtered by The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) they are “closely monitoring’ the situation with “deep concern.” Garrett pressed Earnest on if they had any plans to help the 40,000 members of one of Iraq’s oldest minorities, Yazidi sect, who are stranded on Mount Sinjar with no food or water surrounding by ISIS. Earnest said he could not detail any current plans but President Barack Obama is “keenly aware of the dire humanitarian situation that exists.”  A frustrated Ed Henry said, “Your closely watching people being slaughtered” and Josh Earnest would only answer this is a problem the Iraq people have to solve through their government and Obama is currently weighing the situation.

    Why does Obama care…. it’s not him on that mountain…

  • USMC 64-68 says:

    For these treasonous, gutless, anti-American democrats, “watching,” “studying” and “considering” have replaced what men of character used to do – ACT!

  • mort_f says:

    Nothing to see here. Just a continuation of 621 A.D., re-invigorated by the ‘Arab Spring’. Since the jews have left that area, the ‘religion of peace’ is working on the remaining Christians, and any sect, like the Yasisi, that stands in its way.

  • aurora9 says:

    Did anyone really expect Obama to help out these people? He is a muslim and sides with them. He wants the Christians exterminated. Everything he has done is weakening America. Why he hasn’t been arrested and incarcerated for treason amazes me!

  • When will people wake up to OBAMA is the enemy … .

      Do not despair every a-hole in the Nation considers Obama the enemy, a Socialist, a Muslim, a Kenyan and, a few on the fringe, an agent from outer space sent to enclave the entire Earth. And descendants of old Southern Slave Owners want their property back.

      1. Glad you like him Art, not every Kafir does. . . do you
        tithe to his cause or do you just drink the kool-aid ?

      That’s what he thinks of the American people!!

  • I Seigel says:

    This story was outdated before it was even posted.

  • outofsteam says:

    Obama shrugs his shoulders and it’s like, oh well. He knows what’s going on but doesn’t want to do anything about it because he doesn’t like Christians himself. He’s a muslim and wants them to succeed. Those bombs he authorized were superfluous. Haven’t heard of any repercussions. The people on the mountain and the Kurds have been asking for days for help. I’ll just bet not one ISIS person has even been injured.

    They just keep throwing the pinko press secretaries into the Frey, they all have canned answer, never any substance from the white house

    1. John Henry says:

      best liars that Obama can hire…

      What was that Billy Preston song? … Keep on using me till you use me up.

  • James Maxwell says:

    This is a shock, you mean that O’socialist is actually aware of something that
    is currently happening, he didn’t just get it from a TV report or read it in the
    newspaper? That has to be a first for him, aware of a current crisis that is
    current and in the news not something that happen months ago.

    1. John Henry says:

      Did you notice that while everyone is talking about Air strikes on ISIS artillery, Obama’s Press secretary said today that Congress has not done its job, and he will have to make new decision and presidential orders concerning the border and the illegals streaming into our country?

      1. James Maxwell says:

        Of course, after all they cain’t let a good crisis go to waste.
        And that will give the bottom feeder a chance to screw up

        the nation some more and Bend the TAX Payers over

        the barrel at the same time. Don’t foreget that they have
        the EBOLA problem to play with next after the ylet the

        invading SOB across the bordrer. Think we should demand
        that ever Low Life O’Libral had to take in a dozen of them.
