UM: Obama says our objective is to DEGRADE and DESTROY ISIS, but I thought it was to make ISIS a ‘manageable problem’

I just posted that Obama saying that ISIS could be a ‘manageable problem‘ if the international community would come together. But now I find out in the same press conference that Obama also said that our objective is to degrade and destroy ISIS:

Contradiction much Mr. President? So which is it? Are we going to degrade and destroy ISIS or just turn them into a ‘manageable problem’? You can’t have it both ways.

If I had to put money on it, I’d say he’s really going with ‘manageable problem’ over ‘degrade and destroy’. He just wanted to sound tough for the cameras by saying the latter.
