Oil wells have addresses.
Are you still pretending to fight ISIS, when you could, on any day, and at any time, have simply bombed the Islamic State oil wells and put them out of commission?
The NY Times claimed, in sycophantic fashion, that you are “struggling” on this question. I don’t personally believe that.
“WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is struggling to cut off the millions of dollars in oil revenue that has made the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria one of the wealthiest terror groups in history, but so far has been unable to persuade Turkey, the NATO ally where much of the oil is traded on the black market, to crack down on an extensive sales network.”
The Times never once mentions the oil wells.
This is an oil well:

This is one of your toys:
Now it may be above the pay grade of the media whores at the NY Times to put the two together. But it is certainly not beyond the planning of people in your own Pentagon. No. It’s probably the very first thing they suggested the moment the problem became known. They are quite famous for blowing shit up wherever they go.
So, Mr. Obama, the real question is: WHY ARE YOU PROTECTING THE ISIS OIL WELLS FROM MILITARY ATTACK?
THE BUCK STOPS … WHERE?
