CBS Reporter Grills W.H. On Why Anyone Should Bother Watching Obama’s ISIS Speech

With President Obama unveiling his ISIS strategy in a national address on Wednesday, CBS reporter Major Garrett wanted to know why Americans should even watch, when Obama has already ruled out so many different tactics. Garrett questioned White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest:

“If I listened to you correctly. There will no ground troops involved, there will be no tactical operational details, no timeline for victory, no cost associated with the pursuit of victory.”
“Why should anyone watch?”

Earnest responded by saying they should watch because Obama will be talking about how we plan to “confront risks” and “ultimately degrade and destroy ISIL.”
However, Garrett didn’t feel that was sufficient and replied, “The audience wants to know how we are going to win and based on what you said I don’t hear the president telling people that tomorrow night.” Then, Earnest explained that he didn’t have the “speech in front of him” but if he did he could tell Garrett the “how.”
