U.S. Air Force Pilots Not Being Given Permission To Engage ISIS Targets in Iraq (VIDEO REPORT)

F-18 Pilot: "There were times I had groups of ISIS fighters in my sights and couldn't get clearance to engage. They probably killed innocent people and spread evil because of my inability to kill them, it was frustrating"


Why, why, why are we not obliterating ISIS targets in Iraq?  Especially when you have them in the crosshairs -- convoys of heavily armed Islamic State fighters parading triumphantly through the streets of Ramadi in western Iraq after forcing Iraqi troops to flee. They rolled through unscathed by coalition fighter-bombers.

Hands are tied:  Fox News Jennifer Griffin says they talked to an F-18 pilot and he stated that they are not getting clearance from higher ups to engage the enemy.

Take a look at this chart--
Incomprehensible: Only 14 daily strikes a day against ISIS targets even though there were over 1,000 a day during Desert Storm and 800 a day during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

14



One Air Force General who talked to Fox News says there is one reason these strike are not happening-- The Obama White House-- They caused this bottleneck in the chain of command

Watch the report from Fox News' Jennifer Griffin. She says that 75% of U.S. planes are returning without dropping their ordnance.
