Description

Cenk hosts TYT today. President Obama told 60 Minutes that the intelligence department underestimated the ISIS threat as it built itself amongst the chaos of Iraq. He also said that we overestimated the willingness of Iraqis to fight. Obama outlines why we have to go in militarily to disrupt their networks in a video. Cenk is annoyed by Obama’s lack of clarity or understanding of how to do anything. Videos of Fox News’ Chris Wallace going after Obama spox Blinken over the Administration’s use of the authorization after they officially came out against the authorization to use force are also shown. In addition, Wallace grilled Blinken on Obama restarting the war after declaring the decade of war is over. Cenk points out that the past few Spox and advisors have similar names. Khorasan, the newly publicized terror group that we’re bombing in Syria has some usefulness for our scare tactics. New evidence shows that since we already declared that ISIS isn’t an imminent threat, we needed an immediate enemy threat that justifies our aggression, so we created this one in order to bomb targets connected to ISIS. A new president has been elected in Afghanistan and we’ve announced that we’ll be keeping 10K troops in the country indefinitely. Oddly enough, there was a suicide bomber near the location of the swearing in ceremony for the new president. Cenko Unchained on the miserable failure that is our intelligence community. An Oklahoma man returned to his job and killed a few co-workers after he was fired, including the beheading of an older woman. Since he recently converted to Islam and obsessed over Islamic violence, Conservatives are screaming terrorism has arrived here at home. Videos of Fox and Friends discussing this with Rick Perry, claiming that beheading hasn’t been heard of until ISIS came out with their videos. Joe Scarborough is in disbelief over the fact that this was called workplace violence and not terrorism. The Umbrella Revolution is ongoing in Hong Kong. It got its name from the way protesters used umbrellas to protect them from the projectiles being launched by law enforcement. Their anger stems from the government’s attempt to limit the citizens’ election freedom of who to have on the ballot.
