Bernard Kerik: Failing Anti-ISIS Coalition Proves Obama's Poor Leadership

Reports that the coalition of 65 nations assembled by President Barack Obama to bomb the Islamic State was falling apart were "extremely disturbing" and reflected poor "local leadership," former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"You're talking 30,000 to 50,000 people, OK, are in this group of terrorist thugs," Kerik, who oversaw the city's forces during 9/11, told "Newsmax Prime" host John Bachman. "You mean to tell me that the United States, Paris, Russia, the U.K., and supposedly 65 other nations — this global effort that the president has talked about, we can't resolve this issue with 50,000 terrorists?

"These people? That in itself is an enormous problem," he added. "It talks about local leadership. It talks about the leadership of this country.

"This should be a no-brainer with the American leadership as it has been in the past," Kerik added. "This would have been an already resolved."

Kerik is the author of the book, "From Jailer to Jailed: My Journey from Correction and Police Commissioner to Inmate #84888-054."

He also slammed Obama's refusal to bomb the oil resources controlled by ISIS, citing environmental concerns.

"If you don't destroy that infrastructure, if you don't destroy those oil reserves as they stand today, that is the primary — one of the primary moneymakers — that's funding these operations.

"You have to take them out," Kerik added. "If that's what the primary funding source is for ISIS, eliminate it. Get rid of it."
