Forbes: Countering ISIS requires more

randy forbesCongressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04), Chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, released a statement today on the submission of the Administration’s “Strategy for the Middle East and to Counter Violent Extremism.”

The report can be viewed here.

“The nation’s highest-ranking military officer recently admitted that the Administration’s top defense strategy documents do not even account for the rise of ISIS or the continuous presence of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Administration’s seven-page report on its Middle East strategy is more of the same, containing virtually no new information on how the United States plans to counter the growing threat of jihadist terrorism. In the wake of the Brussels attacks that killed two Americans, it is inexcusable that the Administration is incapable of articulating a serious plan to protect our country and its interests from terrorists intent on our destruction.”
