President Obama should take credit for it too, but only if he learns that relentlessness in war is what “solves” terrorism and Islamism, not olive branches to Irananian Mullahs, not calling Assad of Syria a “reformer,” not asking permission from the United Nations to attack an enemy, not letting other countries, even allies, take the lead in going after enemies, as we have in Libya, not farming our security out to weaker allies. Sometimes, in other words, war with American power is the only way to solve the problem of peace.
