Too Soon to Say We're 'Winning' Against ISIS, Admits Pentagon

No shit


The Pentagon said on Thursday it is too early to say that the U.S.-led coalition is "winning" against ISIS, pointing to the group's continued access to financing, volunteers and weapons even after being bombed in Syria and Iraq.

"Your question gets at … How do you know you're winning? And what I'm telling you is, it's going to take us a while to be able to say that," Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told reporters.
