Seeking cover from air strikes

As I stated yesterday, ISIL/ISIS/IS will adapt to air strikes and just this morning here’s a Washington Times report:

“U.S. airstrikes prompt Islamic State to move positions, hide among civilians”

This pattern is well-known by military planners, but obviously the Obama administration doesn’t listen to them.  Of course, this move by the terrorists makes it impossible to attack them from the air without increasing collateral damage.  The air strikes will provide a wealth of propaganda value for the terrorists, if we attack them in populated areas and the other winner from Obama’s strategy is Assad, who is busily regaining some ground in Syria.  The only side who won’t benefit from this air campaign is the United States.
