One 'Setback' After Another Against 'JV' ISIS, But Obama Says, 'I Don't Think We're Losing'

The United States is not losing its fight against the Islamic State, President Barack Obama said in an interview published Thursday.

“No, I don’t think we’re losing,” Obama said in an interview with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, referencing the group’s taking of Ramadi. “There’s no doubt there was a tactical setback, although Ramadi had been vulnerable for a very long time, primarily because these are not Iraqi security forces that we have trained or reinforced.”

Obama is 'getting more and more desperate' -- 'He's trying to find some allies in the military, but they're not there'
