Despite the setback in Palmyra in a magazine interview, President Obama insisted that US was not losing the war with the IS militants, also known as ISIL. Marie Harf is the spokeswomen for the State Department. “We havent faced a strategy that, we believe, is the right one to eventually achieve our goals and in Iraq, for example, we talked a lot about Ramadi and this Syrian setback. We have had success in helping the Iraqis push ISIL out of a lot of its territory. And in a long conflict phase, there will be days like we saw on Ramadi, there will be ebbs and flows.”

尽管在帕尔米拉的行动受阻,奥巴马在一次杂志访谈中仍然坚持认为,美国不会在与伊斯兰国武装的战争中失败。国务院新闻发言人马瑞尔·哈弗表示:“目前还没有达成正确的战略,来最终实现我们在伊拉克的目的,比如我们一直谈论拉马迪和叙利亚人的退败。我们成功地帮助了伊拉克人把伊斯兰国组织的攻击拒之门外。另外从战争的长久形势看来,未来将会朝着类似拉马迪地区的局势发展,起起落落将非常平常。”
