Joe Scarborough: Obama’s ‘We don’t have a strategy’ remark comes from ‘The Art of War’

Occasionally I write satirical pieces for this blog, and last week I wanted to put something together where the president’s supporters made the case that his “We don’t have a strategy yet” comment on Islamic State was really a masterstroke that Sun Tzu would applaud.
