President Obama said that ISIS is not “an existential threat to us” in a news conference today in Argentina:

President Obama has a new way to defeat the Islamic State: by telling the terror organization they are weak. Obama revealed his strategy at a press conference today in Argentina.

“It is very important for us to not respond with fear. As I said, that’s hard to do because we see the impact in such an intimate way with the attacks that they make,” Obama said at a press conference.

“But we defeat them in part by saying you are not strong, you are weak. We send a message to those who might be inspired by them to say you are not going to change our values of liberty and openness and the respect of all people. And I mentioned at the baseball game yesterday, one of my proudest moments as president was watching Boston respond after the Boston marathon attack.”
