It’s probably fair to call Carl Higbie an expert about war. Not only was he a Special Operator with SEAL Team Ten, Echo Platoon, he deployed twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He is also a regular contributor on Fox News and an author (Carl published his first memoir, Battle on the Homefront shortly after his second deployment).
So, when Carl gets upset at Obama’s claims that he didn’t know ISIS was a problem, we all should probably listen, and listen closely. During an interview on Fox news, Higbie got pretty intense when it was stated that Obama was, through no fault of his own, unaware that ISIS was a problem.
To be exact, Carl said:
Barak Obama’s foreign policy has been a complete disaster… Any general that hold him that ISIS was going to be a problem, he fired them. That way he wouldn’t have to listen to them. And all the people who didn’t speak up are the ones who stuck around, that he didn’t get rid of. So when he says that he didn’t hear about this from the intelligence community, that’s malarky. I know that guys like General Flynn told him that this was going to be an issue.”

Thankfully, there is only about another month to go of Obamas disastrous foreign policy. After that, we can all breathe a little easier as Trump will be at the helm.
