(Even Joe Biden inadvertently acknowledged the cause-and-effect.)

Obama administration to comply with immigration injunction - Yahoo News

The targeted counterterrorism campaigns Obama prefers to ground combat have weakened some extremists, but done little to quell the chaos in which terror groups thrive, or ward off the formation of new factions, like the Islamic State. And Obama's calls for regional governments and local security forces to take the lead for stabilizing their own countries has often only exposed the weaknesses of those institutions.
