President Obama fired back against those who believe they have a better approach to the war against ISIS, slamming critics who want to “pop off” against his strategy.
“The strategy that we’re putting forward is the strategy that is ultimately going to work,” President Obama said during a press conference on the sidelines of the G20 meetings in Ankara, Turkey. His remarks came after the devastating terror attacks in Paris on Friday, which killed at least 120 people.
“Folks want to pop off and have opinions on what they think they would do, present a specific plan,” President Obama said during the press conference.
Since the attacks, critics have become increasingly vocal against the Obama administration’s campaign against ISIS—which mainly consists of airstrikes, and is light on the ground troop commitment in Iraq and Syria. Most notable of the criticisms lately has been GOP presidential candidates Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Jeb Bush.
