Obama’s Use of ISIL Not ISIS, Tells Another Story

There has been little notice of the president’s insistent use of the acronym “ISIL” to describe the Sunni forces currently rampaging across Iraq, executing Iraqi military and creating a new massive refugee population in an already unstable area.76fe7_2014_02_W_deepdistrust_Fuelner3-300x200

With the exception of Reuters and now the Associated Press, most news organizations have not referred to ISIL until President Obama began using the term, which stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. But when Obama used the term 5 times on June13, and 16 times in his commencement speech at West Point on June 19th, he was using his bully pulpit to make a point.

Most, like this publication, continue to use the widely accepted acronym ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or al-Sham, but both describe the same murderous organization. The difference is that the Levant describes a territory far greater than simply Iraq and Syria.  It’s defined as this: The Levant today consists of the island of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey.

Why would Obama prefer ISIL? An “army” of that territorial magnitude takes the focus off the two countries that many believe define Obama’s continued failure in the Middle East.

Obama would rather eliminate the connection between the chaos in Iraq with his supporting of ISIS in Syria to fight against Assad.

Allegations are mounting that last year Obama approved the US to train Syrian rebels to fight against Assad only to see them later join ISIS and turn against the US-backed Iraqi Army. Obama wants to distance himself from his self created mess and yet another foreign policy blunder, so he now uses the term ISIL.

  1. Dear Sir

    I would like to tell you either you use any of the ISIL or ISIS, it makes no deference for the Islamic State of Iraq and not Syria but Shaam, which also means Levant as common word in English and French that refers to Syria.

  2. OUR failure to act, as individuals and as a nation, to immediately remove all progressive elitist Republicans and Democrats from our government and greatly reduce the size of our government we will no longer be the United States of America. We will be combined with Mexico and Canada and be known as North America….period.

    North America will not be the home of the brave and the free. Its people will not control the government, the government will control the people. Tyranny will rule and control all aspects of a person’s life. Just like Islam does.

    FEMA camps will become a reality where those that speak out against government will be taken when they disappear in the wee hours of the night never to be heard of again. Obama has the power right now to make this happen. Check the wording in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). He said he would never use this power. I have never believed him.

    George W. Bush gave Obama the power to take unilateral control of the United States in the event of an emergency anywhere in the World that can be deemed as posing a threat to our homeland. That permission is given in National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51) and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20 (HSPD-20) which are essentially the same document. These directives were signed in 2007 and are still in effect. They are known as
    “Continuation of Government.” They contain parts that are top secret and members of Congress are denied access to the contents.

    If these directives do not portend “DANGER” I don’t know what does. Here is a link for you to use to learn about these directives. Search for them on Google and as many other search engines as you can. You will find some that can read between the lines and tell you what the power in these dangerous documents provide to any president that decides to invoke that power. Oh, by the way, the president has total power to define every aspect of the directives from when an emergency exists through and to when the emergency ceases to exist.

    The directives empower the president to disband the Supreme Court and send Congress home leaving him in total control of every aspect of leadership of our country. DICTATORSHIP!
