That Vision Thing--Why ISIS Has It and Obama Doesn't

Ever wonder why the Obama regime was caught napping while savage jihadis carved out a new caliphate? Could it be because this POTUS didn't capiche the whole caliphate thing? That's the take-away from this--John Brennan 'splaining the Obama M.O. back in June, 2011:
“Our strategy is…shaped by a deeper understanding of al Qaeda’s goals, strategy, and tactics,” Brennan claimed. “I’m not talking about al Qaeda’s grandiose vision of global domination through a violent Islamic caliphate. That vision is absurd, and we are not going to organize our counterterrorism policies against a feckless delusion that is never going to happen. We are not going to elevate these thugs and their murderous aspirations into something larger than they are.” 
"Absurd"? "Feckless"? Lacking "vision"? What a perfect way to describe the wilfully blind strategy that helped give birth to ISIS, an outfit bereft of none of the above.

Update: Why wasn't Obama better informed?
