[Ed. – That’s a relief. Secure from general quarters.]
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said Thursday at her weekly briefing that she has “confidence” in President Obama’s belief that the Islamic State terrorist group was “contained.” …
“Last week, President Obama said ISIS [the Islamic State] was contained,” a reporter told Pelosi. “Was he right when he said that?”
Pelosi smiled as the question began but she appeared angry when she made her response.
“We are prepared to defeat ISIS by any definition,” Pelosi said. “The president has engaged with more than 65 other countries to defeat ISIS. The president knows better than any of us the threat that they pose to the security of the world and to the American people. So I have confidence in the president’s take on what is out there.”
