They better train fast. Obama will allegedly come up with a strategy any day now. So it’s a race between how fast terrorists can learn to fly and how fast Obama can come up with a strategy while golfing in between fundraisers.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria said in a recent tweet it is forcing detained Syrian pilots to train militant fighters to fly stolen aircraft, CNN Arabic reported on Saturday.

In an account reportedly associated with the militant group, ISIS said in a tweet the pilots were abducted when the group gained control over the Tabqa military airbase in Raqqa Province.

ISIS seized the airbase earlier this month. The major airfield houses warplanes, helicopters, tanks and other artillery and ammunition, which were also confiscated by ISIS, according to several media reports…

At some point they’ll “confiscate” something truly dangerous like WMDs, oh they already did that. Well WMDs that everyone agrees are usable.

And then Obama can do his press conferences in a suit that’s a darker shade of tan.
