A top congressman on the House Armed Sevices Committee is calling out the Obama administration on its failure to address the threat of Islamist attacks on Americans and U.S. interests around the world.

U.S. Rep. J. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), who is Chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, made his comments in response to the White House's report titled "Strategy for the Middle East and to Counter Violent Extremism." He called the seven-page document "more of the same" from the president.

"The nation's highest-ranking military officer recently admitted that the Administration's top defense strategy documents do not even account for the rise of ISIS or the continuous presence of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan," he said. The administration's seven-page report on its Middle East strategy is more of the same, containing virtually no new information on how the United States plans to counter the growing threat of jihadi terrorism.

"In the wake of the Brussels attacks that killed two Americans, it is inexcusable that the Administration is incapable of articulating a serious plan to protect our country and its interests from terrorists intent on our destruction."
