Fox new's veteran political analyst recently slammed President Obama's motivations for attacking Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq. Hume's comments clearly came as a surprise to his fellow guests and Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday. Hume said, “I think it’s beginning to look more and more as if our effort against ISIS is every bit as much inspired by politics and a nearing election as was the previous effort in Iraq.”

Questioning both Obama's resolve and strategy, Hume went on to predict where the air campaign is heading following the November elections, “My sense is after he gets past this election, his effort to take down ISIS — I don’t think it’s something he deeply believes in, I don’t think he could possibly believe in the approach he’s taken — will subside.”
