I just read the liberal rant of Martin Bensky (Letters, Aug. 26). It is time for him to pull his liberal head out of the sand and quit blaming Bush for Obama's failures as a leader.
He commented about the sudden emergence of ISIS surprise everyone. The only people surprised by this group is the average American, certainly not the intelligence community nor the president! I know because I read some of those reports in Afghanistan in 2012.
Instead the president and his incompetent administration chose to ignore it and hope it would go away. It didn't and these type of people never "go away" without some help. The Obama administration had the perfect opportunity to strike when he drew his "make believe" line in the sand in Syria! Now every country in the world knows the incompetence of this administration. Keep making excuses, it's all you got!
