Yazidis

What if ISIS was invading Jordan or Israel or even somewhere in Europe and on a genocidal march through the country, would President Obama be just as much of a hypocrite if he acted against them then?

What do you suppose he is hiding? Why is all the information about him classified? Was he treated differently than other POW’s? Why is he such a “hawk”?
