Apparently 'degrade and destroy ISIS' doesn't mean to Obama & Co.

what it means to me.
War crimes investigators collecting evidence of the Islamic State group's elaborate operation to kidnap thousands of women as sex slaves say they have a case to try IS leaders with crimes against humanity but cannot get the global backing to bring current detainees before an international tribunal.
"The West looks to the United States for leadership in the Middle East, and the focus of this administration has been elsewhere - in every respect," Bill Wiley, the head of the independent investigative group, the Commission for International Justice and Accountability, told The Associated Press.
This is bullshit.  This is what you get when the people in charge care more about meetings and signing papers than actually doing the job.  This is why you had planes dropping ordnance we couldn't replace in empty space because the ROE were so restrictive they couldn't hit the enemy.  And this crap:
Though there are at least dozens of Islamic State extremists in custody in Iraq, there have been no prosecutions for the crimes against humanity that the U.S. - among many others - insist have taken place. 
Everything has to be 'international law' and 'against humanity' and such.  Not needed: the Iraqis could put them on trial because 'You invaded our country and took our people as slaves.  Sentence is death.'  But for some reason that's just not good enough.

A lot of these clowns really don't want to win; they want to make agreements and pretend that solves everything, and when it's too late they'll be like the idiots who want to ban guns: "If we only had one more agreement, it would solve this!"

If we win, then there would be a call to scale back the governments powers. If we keep on fighting then there will be need for more money, powers, personnel, etc. As a friend pointed out to me, we can drop a 2K pound bomb down the smokestack of a factory from 20.000 feet, but we can't do anything about a 20,000 acre drug farm in South America?
