Obama's Joint Chiefs Chair: Islamic State Fighting Because Of 'Grievances'

By Daniel Halper, The Weekly Standard

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey, said that the army of the Islamic State is fighting because of "grievances." He made the comments this morning at a hearing on Capitol Hill:

"It seeks to build a coalition, encourage an inclusive government to address the grievances that have caused this in the first place, it applies U.S. military power where we have unique capability to do so, and over time it allows those populations to reject ISIL."
