Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer told viewers on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that the U.S. should amp up its support of the Kurds in Iraq and Syria against Islamic militants.

Krauthammer faulted the Obama administration for not vigorously supporting the groups that have made headway in countering ISIS, noting the Kurds' recent capture of Tal Abyad, Syria from the Islamic militants.

"Our strategy ought to be to arm, supply and support with heavy air support the Iraqi Kurds, the Syrian Kurds and there's also the front of the Free Syrian Army in southern Syria which is advancing as well," he said.

"These are people we should be supporting but not the Iraqi government and its forces in the field who don't fight and who are not our friend."
