The reversal suffered by the Islamic State, formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria, at Mosul dam has raised exaggerated expectations about the ability to defeat the group.It is where the campaign to defeat the Islamic State is going.If it derails Abadi's efforts to unify Iraqi Sunnis and Shiites against the Islamic State, this could bolster a jihadist group that endangers vital Iranian interests in Iraq and Syria.Even America's military plan against the Islamic State is ambiguous.Instead, the administration has held to an absurd rationale, saying that American military intervention is designed above all to protect the safety of Americans in Iraq.More significant is what does the United States do about the Islamic State's presence in Syria?Obama's craven Syria policy has only helped the Islamic State.
