Easy shut down the several agencies that do roughly the same thing, streamline and give them the resources and laws they need to get rid of people who want to break our laws.
No not a good idea, the good idea is to have the American military...without the constraints of the Geneva Convention or Congressional meddling...go in and show these animals what real soldiers are. Here or there, those are our only options.
While it was just a story, it is a horrifyingly plausible story...we are broken as a nation and we need strong leadership to set things right once again.

As I said we were doing quite well against them when they came to fight us...there or here.
Troops on the ground was a lie in the first place...you cannot have effective urban air strikes with Air Combat Controlers painting targets....if he is stupid enough to train the foriegn fighters and give them our equipment to accomplish this mission, then we are sunk anyway because a portion will just direct it against our people.

Conch..."Is that true??!? If so, then Lord help us all. The person who came up with that brilliant idea needs to be relieved from his post. Fantastic job, one and all, sending our troops over there with a big huge target on their backs. And bonus points for helping out our good buddy Iran. They would absolutely love for us to exterminate their blood enemy ISIS. If I didn't know any better, I would say our chief Iranian advisor Valerie Jarrett came up with that gem. " Stay on the conversation...Corbett was, wrongly I might add, talking about Al Queada...I was talking about all radical Islam. As soon as we started fighting in Iraq, all radicalized Islamic people came to fight us...which is what we wanted. And we were doing well against them until our hands were tied by politicos. This is not about one radical group or another...it is about radical Islam as a whole.

"Mike: The Muslims are stuck in the 7th century. The 21st century world does not have to fear the 7th century -- unless we utterly destroy our economy by the warfare you advocate. Leave them alone and they will go back to killing each other. That is what they do best. The LAST thing we need to do ist to give them more targets. " We have the example of Australia that tells us they will and have come here to spread their war...here or there...those are our choices. We can wait for them to kill large numbers here before we act...will you be the one to explain to the deads loved ones why we allowed it to happen?

" Mike: So your first sergeant made up a fairy tale to try to justify the war. People are always trying to justify the absolutely pointless and stupid things they are involved in. But if GWB had any notion that he should invade Iraq in order to attract more terrorists, he sure as hell didn't share it with the world. This is mainly because he knew that he'd be laughed out of office for suggesting it. Mike, THINK ABOUT IT. You have 170 enemies who are members of al Qaeda. They are fully engaged in a war in Afghanistan. Does it really make any sense to start ANOTHER war to draw them into the open? Iraq turned out to be the biggest recruiting drive of terrorism in the history of the world -- as many of us predicted. We turned HOARDS of otherwise peaceful people into terrorists with this war. Anyone who had any sense at all could have predicted that this would be the result. " You have no understanding of military concepts so trying to explain them to you will be a lost cause...

Corbett..."MIke: When Iraq started, there were 170 members of al Qaeda. Now they and their allied groups have tens, if not hundreds of thousands of members. And this is BECAUSE of the continual warfare that you advocate. You're the one who said this was the plan all along. (I suppose GWB talked to you personally about what he was planning, because he sure as hell didn't tell anyone else that this was his idea.) " Don't be any more absurd than you need to be, it was briefed many times in our staff meetings that this was the gaol. Lure a stateless aggressor to a known location so that you can kill them...easy concept.

Corbett..."Mike: The answer is border security -- not incessant warfare. Are you too blind to see that we are making more enemies than we are killing by our wars? " No I am not blind, they however declared war on us...to which you might say who cares. That is short sighted, if we do not stop them and they create their Caliphate, how long do you think it would take them to try to expand it? BTW it is not a border issue...many people from many nations come in and out of our country everyday, most peacfully...do we really know how many have nefarious ideas? We also have a great many citizens who identify with radical Islam. Make no mistake we are at war, against a stateless enemy right now, but it is still a war.

Until a school bus full of children is blown up in our country, or a mall is attacked and hundreds killed....maybe a bunch of Americans are taken off the streets and beheaded for propaganda videos.
