Given to usually wearing dark suits, the president appeared in a pale suit for a serious press conference related to ISIS and the growing terror threats.
“President Obama on Thursday said the U.S. does "not have a strategy yet" for combating the Islamic State in Syria and suggested reports of an imminent military intervention were premature.
"I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet," Obama said in response to questions about whether he was considering expanding the airstrikes he has ordered against ISIL in Iraq to target the terrorist group's "safe haven" in Syria.
The president said there would be "no point" in asking Congress to authorize military action when, essentially, he didn't know what the mission would be.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
P.S.~It makes one recall the “horses of disaster” from The Leftovers.
