Why Obama finally moved against ISIL

Washington Post:

Obama’s swift leap from no strategy to a full battle plan

For a president sometimes criticized for a reluctance to act, the speed of his latest decision to launch a massive air assault against Islamic State was stunning.
He was losing the war and US voters so he had little choice in moving against ISIL.  ISIL's conquest demonstrated that his previous policy of withdrawal was an abject failure that was creating the genocide President Bush warned about.   The polls showed his approval of foreign policy was in the tank which suggest the move was as much political as it was military.
