    WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, on December 23, the Augusta Chronicle published an editorial with significant insight: ``President Obama finally has a counterterrorism strategy: Photo-ops and speeches. After dawdling for several years in the fight against ISIS, his advisers must realize that Mr. Obama is losing not only the war on terror, but the domestic audience as well.

    ``This administration is a story of one failure after another. The President calls ISIS the JV team of terror. He says ISIS is contained, the day before the Paris attacks. The morning of the San Bernardino terror attack, he says: `Our homeland has never been more protected by more effective intelligence and law enforcement professionals at every level than they are now.' '' The editorial continues: ``American lives are on the line, and this President won't identify the enemy or secure our borders and communities. And his plan of attack? Photo-ops and speeches and unvetted refugees.'' In conclusion, God bless our troops, and may the President by his actions never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.

    Thank you, Peggy Sampson, for your dedicated service.
