Rick Santorum: It Sounds Like President Obama is in Cahoots With the Strategy of ISIS to Maintain Their Territorial Integrity

Audio clip:

"You wonder how low this president can go in his mis-characterization, his depiction of anybody that opposes him, and taking the most extreme and lowest form of rhetoric. He's despicable, he's delusional and what's causing the problem? ISIS isn't fighting us because we won't take Syrian refugees; ISIS is fighting us because they hate everything we believe in. ISIS is fighting us because in their holy book it says their job is to conquer the infidels in which we are one. That's why ISIS is fighting us."

-Rick Santorum on President Obama's remarks about republicans "being scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America"

Former Pennsylvania Senator and Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum called into Kilmeade and Friends to discuss President Obama's remarks regarding republican's legislation on vetting Syrian refugees, his lack of action in destroying ISIS, and what we can do to fight radical Islamic terrorists.

Listen here:

Rick Santorum on the way President Obama is portraying opponents of allowing Syrian refugees into the country without proper screening: Do you think the president is accurately portraying the concerns of Americans and 30 plus governors and even senator Schumer when he says widows and orphans have you guys afraid?

"It's despicable. You wonder how low this president can go in his mischaracterization, his depiction of anybody that opposes him, and taking the most extreme and lowest form of rhetoric. He's despicable, he's delusion and what's causing the problem? ISIS isn't fighting us because we won't take Syrian refugees; ISIS is fighting us because they hate everything we believe in. ISIS is fighting us because in their holy book it says their job is to conquer the infidels in which we are one. That's why ISIS is fighting us. But we have a president who won't even say the word Islam, or even say the word jihadist. This is a president who uses the term ISIS and he doesn't even realize he's talking about the Islamic state when he says the word ISIS. He even admits in his own rhetoric that Islam is part of it, but again it's a delusional disconnect so what he has to do in his fantasy world is accuse people of things that they're not advocating. No one is afraid of widows and orphans. Widows and orphans did not blow up or kill people in Paris a weekend ago. It was an ISIS plant within these groups of refugees who are coming to kill, and destroy, and pursue terror among the west to destroy the infidel. That's what they're doing."

Kilmeade: Are you concerned that France had to go to Russia for help?

Santorum: I'm not surprised. Russia is at least leading. This president has been following, this president makes excuses for not acting, and if you look at what this president has done with ISIS it's the worst foreign policy in the history of America. The president's policy toward ISIS is to contain ISIS, ISIS's policy in order to gain credibility as a caliphate in the Middle East and around the world is to maintain their territorial integrity. Let me repeat that. The president's policy is to keep ISIS within their bounds. ISIS's objective is to keep their territorial integrity. What does that sounds like? It sounds like president Obama is in cahoots with the strategy of ISIS to maintain their territorial integrity. And he doesn't realize by having this strategy he provides the greatest recruitment tool for ISIS, which is- America is fighting us and we are maintaining our territorial integrity and we are winning this battle. The president is helping ISIS every single day by the policies we have and he doesn't even know it because he refuses to accept the reality that ISIS is a caliphate. ISIS is using a seventh century text book to operate this war and unless we understand it and we find a strategy against it we are going to lose this battle.
