Better late than never?
The admission came during a panel segment on Fox News Sunday, when host Chris Wallace asked Ingraham if President Barack Obama made the correct decision by ordering airstrikes against ISIS.
“It’s really hard, I don’t think you can judge how he did right now,” she admitted. “We’re almost in an impossible situation. The America people really have no appetite for America to reengage. They don’t want us to go into Syria. He’s now reluctantly seeing the perils of inaction. If we do nothing here, then what? I mean, let’s say Iraq does fall, which I think is a possibility. Iraq may fall. If, indeed, there are no boots are the ground, not going to happen, can’t happen.”
According to Crooks and Liars:

Later in the segment, Ingraham pointed out that al Qaeda — through its ISIS offshoot group — was “becoming the Islamic state.”
“We tried to do all these things in Iraq, now Iraq is worse off!” she exclaimed. “I mean, I hate to say that, but Iraq is worse than before we went in to Iraq. Christians are gone, there’s no sense of order at all.”
“Saddam Hussein is gone. That’s a good thing, but what’s left? A more embolden Islamic state.”[/box]
I question her implied claim that a Christian presence means a sense of order. The Tea Party is plenty Christian, by their own admission, and there’s no order to that madness at all.
