FBI Director Comey States, Defeating ISIS Is As Good As Losing

FBI Director James Comey Stated In a Speech at Fordham University  That to Defeat ISIS Is Not A Positive in The War Against Radical Islam.

According to The Daily Caller:

Comey elaborated the U.S. Anti-ISIS coalition will eventually succeed against ISIS, but that “through the fingers of that crush are going to come hundreds of really dangerous people.” Comey called the phenomenon a “terrorist diaspora” and drew a parallel to the spread of al-Qaida fighters after the Afghan jihad in the late 1980s and 1990s, saying the defeated ISIS fighters will be “10 times that or more.”

Veteran fighters of Osama bin Laden’s Afghan jihad went on to carry out attacks such as 9/11, the embassy bombings in Africa, and the 2000 bombing of a U.S. destroyer in the Gulf of Aden. Comey said the attacks in Paris and Brussels were a preview of a “challenge that is going to come.” The Paris attacks were carried out by Syrian battlefield veterans, and received direction and funding from ISIS’s core territory.

Comey’s warnings highlight an element of the fight against ISIS rarely discussed by President Barack Obama and his administration. The administration and Pentagon have long defined success against ISIS in terms of territory seized in Iraq and Syria. After a single week in which ISIS killed more than 350 people across four different countries, Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook told reporters attacks do not “alter the strategy.”

It is true We Now Fight War’s Differently In This Day and Age, But To Think Victory As a Defeat Makes Many Wonder If There Is A Plan Within The Present Administration To Win, Or Is This The Present Way Of Life We Can Expect For The Future?
