Really, Charlie? This is what you’re going with?

An excerpt from the linked piece:

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) says that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is not a direct threat to U.S. security and is questioning President Obama’s strategy against the terror group.

“I don’t see where that’s a threat to our national security,” Rangel said Thursday on MSNBC, when asked about the group’s advance on the Kurdish town of Kobani in Syria and attacks in Baghdad’s Green Zone.

Hey, Rep. Rangel: How about getting on the same page as President Obama, heh? Because the president told the American people numerous times that ISIS is a threat to our national security:

As for the threat, what about ISIS recruiting U.S. schoolgirls. Is that a threat at all for Rep. Rangel?

And let’s not forget that the president, as Twitchy reported, used a very specific threat from terrorists in Syria as justification for the current bombing campaign in Syria:

Twitchy also reported that there’s a possibility that President Obama hyped the threat from the Khorasan group as a pretext to take the U.S. to war:

And we weren’t alone:

This leaves two options, either the president is wrong about ISIS or he lied about ISIS. Which one is it?
