Obama Admin. Covering Up the Facts on ISIS Fight?


The retired Marine Corps general picked to lead the U.S. fight against ISIS in Iraq is stepping down this fall.

Gen. John Allen is leaving over his frustration over U.S. policy in the Middle East as well to help care for his wife who suffers from an auto-immune disease, sources told Fox News.

Allen, who has held the post for a year, has been unhappy with the aministration's policy for much of that time. He's stayed six months longer than he planned and will leave the position in early November.
