Speaker John A. Boehner continued his critique of the White House’s strategy to defeat the Islamic State terror group Thursday, telling President Barack Obama to “scrap” his Iraq strategy and be more engaged on the issue of Islamic radicalization.

“It’s been a week now since ISIL fighters stormed Ramadi … the White House still insists that no new strategy is needed,” Boehner said. “… It just isn’t credible. Things need to change. A stable and sovereign Iraq is vital to America’s interests. … To win this fight, the president is going to have to scrap his policies that aren’t working.”
