Biden Declares Obama Has Defeated ISIS!
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has said the momentum of Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq has stalled.
“ISIL’s [IS] momentum in Iraq has halted, and in many places has been flat-out reversed,” he said in Washington on April 9.
He cautioned, “There’s still a long fight ahead — I don’t want to paint an overly rosy picture.”
Biden’s comments came after the Iraqi government declared victory over the Sunni group in the city of Tikrit on April 1. Shi’ite militias and U.S. air power drove IS militants out of the city, which had been held by the group since June.
